The Wilds is a treasure that somehow flies under the radar. For all ages the safari truck rides enable visitors to have terrific animal encounters. For adults and teens, the Zipline Safari is incredible. The 10 lines, some of which span some of the animal enclosures, provide a very exciting experience. The best part about the Wilds is the fact... More

Went here with my daughter when she was about a year old. We rode around on the open air bus and saw all the animals. It was summer so it was warm but not unbearable. They stop for food & drinks about half way through also. My daughter really enjoyed it as well as us adults.

Amazing wild animal Reserve...in...Ohio! It would be too involved to go into ALL the animals. Plenty to see/do-stay in a yurt, take tours, take zipline tour...Plenty! Fairly far from civilization (not a bad thing), but well worth the visit!

If you've always wanted to go on an African safari but couldn't quite pull the thousands of dollars together for the airfare, the Wilds could be a nice alternative. You can choose to ride around in an open-sided or air-conditioned vehicle. The drivers are also the guides, driving you along a pre-determined route to view many African animals. The enclosures...

Take a bus tour inside the reserve to watch the many different animals close up in a natural environment. Guides are entertaining and full of knowledge to share of the animals and their behavior and habitat.

Had them all on this visit to The Wilds in Cumberland, Ohio. Staying in a luxury yurt was an awesome first. This round tent with bamboo floors came equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing night overlooking the 10,000 acre animal preserve. Sipping a glass of wine provided by the concierge, sitting on the nearby overlook platform, fire pit... More

And for a good reason. It's an amazing place to see some amazing animals. We did the Wildside tour, which was a little expensive, but worth every penny. It was just my me, my wife and kids, and one of the Animal Management staff. it was amazing getting so close to the animals and having my kids feed them. Where... More

Every time I have visited (which has now been 5 times) has been unbelievable! If you love animals and have the money, definitely do the Wildside Tour…it was one of the best and most memorable experiences of my life. All of the tours are wonderful and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, fun, and helpful. As an animal and nature lover,... More

If you get a chance to go here take the beautiful drive and visit. At nearly 10,000 acres the animals in their open range habitat are amazing. Take the Wildside Tour if you can to see the animals up close. The zipline tour looked thrilling but we did not get a chance to do it.
