We try to go to Lion Safari every year. We haven't found there to be lots of shady spots on very hot days but it might be good to do as much as you can earlier in the day and then save the splash park for later to cool off. We always take the bus through the park as much... More

What a fantastic time. My family and I have been there twice, the first time we took the bus tour through the safari park. It was very noisy and loud in the bus because a lot of the kids where so excited, I just could not wait to get off the bus ( It cost extra per person for this).... More

Went back to this place after about 30 yrs +, was just as good as it was first time. This time just my husband and I went (we are both senior's) and enjoyed it very much, we could take our time as NO kids with us this time. Loved the elephants having their baths in the pond later in the... More

Michael Hackenberger initiated The Elephant walk over thirty years ago and it's still a joy to be a part of today.The Raptors are impressive and the show interactive.Expensive and worth every cent.Daisy

It's truly amazing to see that you don't haveto fly to Florida to see wildlife. On a bright and sunny day you can not only enjoy the drive but enjoy the sites when you arrive at the African Lion Sarafi. I would recommend hoping in the bus to view the animals (especially since the monkeys can cause havoc with your... More

This is a great way to spend the day with the family and enjoy an experience with some sweet animals. You and kids will be amazed to see how the animals eat, live and sleep. The monkeys are very lively & make sure you keep the car windows closed as they are very curious! Enjoy & have fun :)

If you want to see animals in a wild life setting this is not the place for you. Many cats were seen by myself and my children in cages. The animals that were out of cages looked ok but I wondered what happens in the winter when these animals are not used to the extreme cold. I think they are... More

Your kids and friends will love it. The terrain actually looks like Africa. The baboons will keep you entertained. Worth going to see. Will leave the kids with memories that will last them a life time.

First time ever to a safari and it felt like I was on the sets of Jurassic Park... the giant electric gates, double security, barbed wire and fences, people in cars and animals roaming free... It was pretty amazing! Lots of other stuff to do as well - shows, demonstrations, etc. The flying birds show was spectacular - even got... More
