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...

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!!
