Close to it all Niagara Falls One of the natural wonders of the world, Niagara Falls was formed about 12,000 years ago when the retreating glaciers of the last ice age allowed water to spill over the Niagara Escarpment. The waterfall was originally located at Queenston, near the shore of the great glacial Lake Iroquois (now known as Lake Ontario), but has since eroded 11.4 kilometres southwards, creating the Niagara gorge. About 600 years ago Niagara Falls was a single waterfall, but erosion since that time has created two falls: the American falls and the Canadian “Horseshoe” falls.

Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory The Butterfly Conservatory features over 2,000 exotic butterflies of the world in a tropical rainforest environment. Dozens of species fly free through the climatecontrolled 1,022 square metre conservatory. Outside, visitors can meet some of the native butterflies in the outdoor Butterfly Garden, and beyond the garden there is a 40 hectare Botanical Garden. Audio tours are available in six languages, including German.

The Niagara Escarpment – A World Biosphere Reserve The Niagara Escarpment is one of the world’s most unique natural wonders – a masterpiece of living art that has been recognized as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The diverse natural landscape contains an incredible ecosystem. It is home to 36 species of reptiles and amphibians, 53 species of mammals, 90 species of fish and more than 350 species of birds. Particularly remarkable are the ancient Eastern White Cedars, some of them between 400 and 1,000 years old, which grow out of cracks in the rock cliffs of the escarpment.

African Lion Safari At African Lion Safari visitors enjoy a close-up view of more than 1,000 unique and rare mammals and birds who roam free across this vast reserve. In the comfort of your own car, or as a passenger in the air-conditioned Safari Tour Bus, you will travel along the “Safari Trail” through prides of lions, troops of baboons and herds of zebra. You will also see big cats, white rhino, ostrich, giraffe and many other exotic species. Be sure not to miss the daily elephant swim and the exciting birds of prey flying demonstrations.
