We drove from Buffalo about 1 and half hours. Cost $31 each with a $2 off coupon at the border. We loved the safari and took our own car. We drove through the monkey area twice we just went through where the security trucks turn around.Watch for security and when they aren't looking roll the window down just a little... More

Its always fun to look at animals, but not for the amount they want. For 2 adults and 1 child it was $97! And that was just to get in the gate. We took our own car so we saved money on that. The splash pad is AMAZING!! The best I've ever seen by far! The splash pad had different... More

My family spent the whole day here and still didn't manage to see everything. We loves everything from the drive in the Bus round the safari to the shows. It was such a hot day and the kids also visited the splash park and they absolutely loved it! I will definitely be going back when I return to Canada

I actually enjoyed the smaller scale zoo at Safari Niagara more for half the price. If you are CAA/AAA members, make sure you as for the discounts. Even with discounts it cost us still close to 100$. The birds show where you hear the special bird speak and sing was impressive. Boat and train rides included in admission fees was... More

No Elephants, about a dozen apes, lions looked bored, poor food cost's a mint to drive around. The water park is free but it has cost $150 (Canadian) to get in for 2 adults and two children under 10, I suggest you go to a pool instead.

Want a great place for you and the family to go where you will really get your monies worth! Go Wild! This great attraction is located in the heart of the Golden Horseshoe and is a short drive from some of the populated parts of Ontario! You may choke a bit as you pay to get in but at the... More

A good experience for families with kids. We enjoyed the animal shows - especially the Elephant show. The elephant ride was a good experience for kids though it is expensive at $8 per ride. The Elephant swim was good too. We took the bus and were planning on going on the safari in our car, but ran out of time.... More

Our kids loved this place and so did we! We spent about 5 hours there, the longest we've been able to entertain our kids anywhere, and could've easily spent the whole day there had it not been raining. There is plenty to see and do, and it is a clean, family friendly place. For those who have not been there,... More

I went with family members from out-of-province. I'm not sure if I am the best person to review this place because I don't like to use animals as entertainment. I was also left wondering what happens to all of these animals in the winter months. I was surprised that there were elephants there with all of the fuss from the... More

We took our car through the safari tour. Before you get to the gate, buy the $5 program. It is worth it as it identifies the animals you are going to see in the order that you are going to see them. It was wonderful. The animals were so close. Our kids(2&3) loved it. Our car wasn't harmed in any... More
