We've driven through places like this before but none where the lion were roaming around free. Amazing to get so close. The shows are very fun and unique. Better then the shows they do at the zoo.

African Lion Safari was probably one of the highlights of our kids summer vacation. We first decided to spend the extra money and take the tour bus around the park. Our driver was fun and knowledgeable. Afterwards we stopped by the splash park and ate lunch. It was really really expensive to eat there so I highly recommend you budget... More

So happy we decided to go. Both our kids, as well as ourselves, loved it. This place caters to all ages. Very educational and fun. Water park is awesome. Buy tickets at Costco to save a few bucks. Will return.

There is so much to do at African Lion Safari (and almost everything is included in admission, including parking!) The drive through the safari is awesome - seeing all the animals. You can drive your own vehicle or pay an additional fee to ride the air-conditioned buses with narration. The monkeys are my favourite part! There is also the African... More

We got to the safari and it was lined up huge and we almost turned around. Good thing we didnt!!!! The park was great and the kids enjoyed all the animals they had. We took the bus tour instead of driving threw ourselves and we enjoyed that. The splash pad for the kids was a great feature on the hot... More

In addition to animals, grandchildren loved the splash pad. Also had dog runs in the shade with a nice breeze and bowl of water for "four-legged" members of family.

The drive thru the "safari" is what most people think of when they think of ALS, and it was good, really good, to see such a wide variety of animals up close. No, not all the animals were active and coming right up to your car, but that's understandable. The other animal attractions were even better though i.e. the elephant... More

The place is exciting! Even the animals. We didn't not use our car to go inside the safari because of the naughty monkeys & ostrich. ...Instead we take the tour bus. Over all its good & educational specially with the kids. Everybody enjoyed the bus ride. We didn't go to splash but the children loved the play area & the... More

The animals looked happy and very well kept, the most important thing! The safari part was great, we took our own car and had no issues but we did see others that had some damage. I think they prefer cars with 'stuff' on them, like wing tails, roof racks, etc. Baboons stayed off us. The water park was amazing, the... More

This zoo is great but not much to see after the safari ride. I finished everything in a single visit. Will visit again if there are new attractions.
