Ive been to the safari many times since I was a lil girl. I now take my children. I've enjoyed it everytime. I will suggest morning is the best time to go before it gets hot. We love to go in the springtime when the new babies are born.

A fun drive through park with a lot of animals roaming the area, not behind fences. I kept looking for indications the animals for mistreated or not kept well, but couldn't find anything. A very enjoyable experience, would love to bring the grandkids.

Horrible. Animals that were awake all looked depressed. Half were asleep. They have a bunch of the same animals over and over and very few actual zoo animals. Bought my kids a stuffed animal each. Got home and realized my sons $15 animal had 4 holes in it. Not worth the drive or the $50 it cost for 4 of... More

This drive thru zoo is depressing, cruel, and unethical. At least three animals were limping and one zebra was extremely foundered. Majority of the animals were inactive and appeared unhappy/depressed. They support cub petting and had wolf hybrid puppies (why breed them and why have them away from their parents). The staff was rude.

We visited over spring break and all of the baby animals were out and about . Great fun for children ages 7 and 11, I loved it as well. Reasonably priced and better than any zoo!

Took the kids here over spring break. They loved it! Many of the animals had recently had babies. The kangaroos had joeys in their pouches, the ponies had little foals, there were several little piglets, and several baby dear. They had camel and pony rides while we were there. The only issue was a portion of the safari was closed... More

This is a great place. We were lucky enough to follow behind the truck feeding the animal's so they were all very active.

This was our first visit and we were very impressed! It was the perfect trip for Grandma and grandkids. The animals were vast and we cared for. I was amazed at the variety and number. I was expecting much less. The grounds were very clean with helpful staff. We will be returning I'm sure.

My family and I have visited this drive through safari several times. We like the ostriches that come up to your car and stare at you through the windows, they are creepy but funny. We also like the petting zoo where you can feed various animals. The highlight last time was a monkey enclosure that you could enter with a... More

We live in NC. We visited the Safari several years ago and were anxious to come back. The cost is well worth what you see in return. The drive through Safari section is 4 miles. You are in your car on a gravel or dirt road during this trip. We let the kids sit in the back to view through... More
