Took the family of four here to kick off a week of vacation. Our tickets were packaged with our hotel (great deal). The park is split into two sections--the animal sanctuary, and the theme park. We started the day on a bus tour of the sanctuary (cost about $20 for four tickets). You can drive your own car if you... More

Excellent family trip! so far my #1 in Ontario. Good for kids, lots of playgrounds and splash pad, amazing elephants! Take a bus through the games, the road gets pretty crowded, like DVP in rush hour.The bus will take you nicely through the traffic.

This is always a go to when we have visitors. The park is a good size that you don't spend all your time walking to different attractions, everything is very well laid out. The animal shows are all very well timed that you can just go from one to another. The reserve has plenty of space for the animals and... More

I love coming here. The animals and the park are very well taken of. Was enjoyable to see a lot of baby animals, thanks to the breeding program. The prices are very reasonable. There is an excellent display of animals. The child water park is outstanding, so make sure the kids bring their bathing suits. Line-ups moved fast for the... More

Took my parents here on our way back from Niagara Falls. Although the entry fees are a bit pricey, we all thought it was worth it. We opted to drive our own car through the game reserves because we wanted to go at our own pace. We were warned that the Safari will not be responsible for any type of... More

A great place to visit. Make sure you keep your windows closed.. The white lions were the highlight for me and the giraffes were a close second .. Took my granddaughter for an elephant ride she loved it...

Having been to Kenya a number of times and having gone on a 'real' safari, I was skeptical (to say the least) about the African Lion Safari. However, my brother was in town with his girlfriend, and they were very keen on checking it out. I have to say, I was VERY pleasantly surprised with the outcome. We chose to... More

We arrived about 10:30 which was just about perfect timing. We headed right to the building to buy our tickets for the bus tour (started at 11:15)to see the animals as we were not going to drive our own vehicle through and risk damage. The animals were all pretty well behaved from what we saw and only saw one monkey... More

We live fairly close to African Lion Safari and have gone quite a few times. This is the first time in almost three years. They have done a lot of work to really improve the play areas. The animals are always amazing and even though, honestly, I don't usually look forward to going that much, I always have more fun... More
