We recently took a trip to Mooresville, NC to the Lazy 5 Ranch to see what all the fuss was about. I am not too sure what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't what we got. It was much better than I anticipated and I was truly overwhelmed (and maybe even a little concerned at times) about the sheer volume of animals that were readily available to come up to my truck while we drove through. On a practical level it was great because getting good photos and videos was super easy but on the other hand I worried about the animals being in such close proximity to vehicles. Most of the animals greedily rushed my vehicle and we all eagerly either fed them pellets we purchased at the entrance or snapped picture after picture until we got the desired shot. All in all I definitely want to visit the place again and it may be the closest thing to a real safari I get to experience for a while so I'll take it. Check out the video from our trip.
