It was thee best memory I have and the Elephant swimming time I could have sat and watched them for hours. I dont know if they have it anymore but really this drive through... More

Visited African Lion Safari with husband and grandchildren. We had a fantastic time there. We try to go once a year. Whenever we have family from Europe, we always take them there, and they really enjoy it. Great Splash Pad for the children, along with waterslides which the kids really enjoy, especially on a hot day, it's excellent. As i... More

We took the bus because we did not want any damage to the rental car the bus driver was knowledgable... More

This place is a bit out of the way if you're just passing through, but worth it. The opportunity to experience a drive through safari without having to travel to Africa was amazing. FYI, animals will come into contact with your car, so be prepared, and keep your windows closed. Very fun.

If you are looking for a place to take the family or even friends young at heart you should seriously consider going here. Not too large to be exhausted from walking all over, yet still lots to see to fill the day. Petting zoo, animal shows, etc are all fun and interesting. The safari drive is excellent and the park...

The was one of the best things that we did on our trip Being able to drive through the park and have wild lions and other animals right outside of vehicle was great !!!! Had to drive through twice and ride the tour bus. The bus was worth the extra money because of the knowledge of the driver. The animal... More

We decided to use our vehicle ( NOT recommended for rental vehicles, pay for their bus ride)The land animal exhibits with animals roaming freely. (windows must be rolled up for most of the trip) were plentiful with numerous photo ops available for each and every animal. the boat ride (free) was a farce being only 5 minutes on the outside,...

I have not been to the safari in over 3 decades. But I must say it was still as wonderful and exciting as it was years and years ago. My children absolutely loved the the monkeys the most because they really put on a show by climbing all over the cars. They were just as amazed with the other animals... More

The park itself is relatively small compared to other attractions but it packs a mighty punch and lots of activities. Before I had kids it was, "okay, seen it, done it", but with young kids (3 and 6), it was very entertaining for them with the splash pad, toddler park, climbing structure, shows, etc and brand new to me all...
