Each time we visit the Safari we are entertained in some way by one of the animals. This year Olive, a beautiful full of life monkey, captured our hearts!

been to the lion safari many times with my children and we've always enjoyed this place because it is not so big that we are exhausted, we've always taken our car through the safari part because it is more fun and of course we do take a chance, but never had damage to our vehicle. sometimes before we leave we...

We went for a birthday! It was perfectly timed to take in the elephant swim. We drive through the park ourselves! We visited several areas more than once! It was lots of fun.

A great way to spend an easy day with family. Geared towards the younger set, I tackled African Lion Safari with two 12 year old girls and two 15 year old girls. When we arrived we headed straight to Pet’s Corner at the back of the park and had the entire area to ourselves. There are lots of birds to... More

Took my grandchildren to Niagara Falls and decided this would be a great side trip...and it definitely was! They're both home-schooled, so this made for a super-great fieldtrip! The only problem we had was that they didn't want to leave!!!! Certainly a place we'd love to visit again...and again!!

I visited African Lion Safari on Father's Day in 2014. I must say, it exceeded my expectations. Instead of using our own vehicles, we decided to pay the addition fee and go on the bus. Our driver was very good during the Safari. She pointed out all the animals, and provided background information on them. Such as which animals are... More

Heard about this attraction from a co-worker that remembers this place as a kid. Decided it would be a great side trip on the way to Toronto from Niagara Falls. TIP: Be sure to get to the front gate by the time it closes. It strictly says the times the gate closes and then you get 2 hours to explore... More

Used our own car to enter and drive around the park. You follow the car in front of you. They also have a bus you can go on. Animals were great to see. Monkeys sat on cars and many were pulling off ALL the weather stripping around all the car windows. OUCH ! We honked our horn and they jumped... More

Interesting to see a monkey climb up on your car then have a giraffe lick your window, the water park is a lot of fun too!
