What a great day all around! It's a nice environment, relaxing park with a nice variety of activities. From the drive-through reserves, to the shows, petting zoo, water splash area, there is something for everyone. My eight year old son's favourite areas were the reserves and splash area. All ages will enjoy the park. The splash area has different areas,... More

Went to the African lion safari the other day and brought my 2 year old daughter she loved it which was great for her and the little waterpark they have is a bonus maybe just me but seemed like there are less animals then before

Just the right size park and lots to do. Not overwhelming, good service with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Bus tour through park was the way to go as the drivers keep you informed about the animals you are seeing. GREAT Waterpark for kids...bring swim gear and a towel. Looking for discounted tickets....purchased ours at Costco London Ontario. Worth it!

What a fun day!!! We went with our 3 and 6 year old and a 7 yo friend. We got there just before 10am and were the first group to drive thru. The animals were relatively active. However on the way out around 4:30 they were very active, especially the baboons and ostrich!! But there's so much more to see... More

I was pleasantly suprised by the African Zoo safari and despite the extreme heat still spent 6 hours here with my family but could have easily been here longer. My children loved the water slides and splash pad to get cooled off as well as the Elephant Rides!! Can not wait to visit this place again!!

After a 6 hour visit at the park (we loved every minute!!) We saved the best for last, our elephant ride that we never fail to... More

I have always loved this place. The shows are well planned un the sense that when one finishes the next one starts. The train and ferry are great for no extra cost. Favourite part - the drive through safari. This was my first time on the bus tour and it's worth it. 2 adults and 1 child was less than... More

This is an amazing experience. Park is having very good collection of various animals. All the animals are open and they comes very near to you. Place is maintained very well. They organize 3 shows everyday and all are amazing. I would recommend this place for visit specially for kids.

There were 5 of us, 1 Adult and 4 seniors. We took our own car through the park instead of using the bus and that proved to be a good decision as we enjoyed the park at our own convenience. We noticed the bus was pretty hurried and did not appear to stop for enough time in each section of... More
