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

Take a picnic lunch and eat by the petting part of the safari. Kids love the petting zoo they offer and their animals and facility are well kept up. Reasonable prices and just such a unique thing to do either as a couple, family, friends, etc

My husband and I went, not really knowing what to expect. It was so much better than we expected. The safari goes on for well over an hour and the animals are amazing. The area it covers is unbelievable. The petting zoo is awesome. I love that you can feed the animals and I especially enjoyed the kangaroos. They are... More

This was the best of a 7 day road trip for my family, kids ages 19, 16, 10. This is a must see! The drive through zoo have animals walking right up to or next to your car. People ignore the do not feed part - which was annoying - then your kids want to ignore the rules too. They... More

It was a great afternoon, well worth the money. There is a lot to do and you can spend as much time as you would like there. So take your family, and your picnic and come here.

I love the drive through zoo! I have loved going there since 1997! Now that I have a child, it is just as fun. The animals come right up to the car. There is an option to buy food for them. There is also food for the family and picnic tables. The petting zoo is great with opportunities to pet... More

Saw the sign for this while going through Siloam Springs. Had a wonderful time. The animals would walk right up to the windows. Takes a while to go through the driving and watch carefully for the smaller animals(we saw baby pigs and baby rheas). Wish you could have fed them during the drive thru part. The petting zoo was nice... More

I took my two daughters and it was incredible. On the drive through the zebras, camels, emus & deer would come right up to your car. We also saw a hippo which was really cool. There were many more animals & the drive through took a full hour. At the petting zoo we got to pet giraffes and hold hands... More
