I liked that there is a huge parking area...easy driving directions. I liked seeing all the different animals. There is a good effort to have the animals living in an habitat close to what they would naturally have. Although I am not sure what they do with the animals when winter comes about. most of these animals need warmer climates... More

Africa lion safari is great when you for the first time or with your family, kids, etc. But for those of us who love wild animals...especially wild cats...african lion safari falls short on that end. I went this summer (2014) and a lot of the big cats were sleeping or just sitting on the rocks. I swear they've had the... More

We went here on my toddler kids birthday. It was a wonderful unforgettable experience. My kids enjoyed so well. Loved to see a giraffe, white lion so near the car glass window. And the water park was also so good. Will visit again next year too. God's willing.

The experience for kids with the animals. One great thing is you don't have to eat at their establishments, you can bring your own food and drinks in., That is a big savings.

It's a great place to bring the whole family, lots of things to See and do. The best part is when you go into the monkey area and you get a very close look at them in action!

The Grandkids absolutely loved it. Especially the elephants and taking an elephant ride. It rained a bit but the sold ponchos, so we just wore them and dealt with it. Always about an adventure. Price should and could be lower.

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...
