We went for our sons tenth birthday. He had a great time. It was a beautiful place and very educational. We'll definitely go back.

The Wilds is a hidden gem in Ohio. The history of this place is amazing and you'll learn about it on the tour. There are a few tour options. The open air bus and enclosed air-conditioned bus provide the same tour. The bus follows the dirt road and you have the opportunity to see the wildlife. The extra cost to... More

I loved visiting The Wilds. I didn't know about this place until my nephew invited me to join him for a zip line tour. We also took a bus tour and got to see quite a few animals. I especially enjoyed the educational aspect of the tours. Had a fun day hanging out with my nephew and we learned a... More

This was our second trip to The Wilds and we couldn't have enjoyed it any more. We stayed in a Yert for three nights, it was lovely and romantic. We took the "Wildside Tour" on two different days. This is open air in the back of a pick up truck with bench seats. You will be able to take some... More

In late July I took the open air Sunset Safari Tour at The Wilds in Ohio and was quite impressed with the tour and lands. The open rolling hills of The Wilds makes for some breathtaking photo opportunities as the sun sets. We were treated to a burning red sky as a rhinoceros and her calf walked on the ridge... More

It seemed like a very long ride to get there, but it was sure worth it! We visited the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium earlier this summer and it was nice but, we enjoyed this much better. If you have a pass to the zoo you get a 50% discount on your tour! You can choose what kind of tour you... More

What a nice visit to the Wilds. I am familiar with the good work the Columbus Zoo has done improving the Zoo and experience there, but wow. The Wilds is a very impressive project. The land is near perfect as it was once a strip mine waste land. Great to see them trying to repopulate and save threatened species. Thanks... More

We had a great time on the open air safari tour. We saw tons of animals on this beautiful August day. Despite the heat, it was cool and breezy in the shade which all the animals enjoyed! We liked the ostrich (Chicken Wing), the cheetahs, the giraffes, the camels and the rhinos the best. We, like our great guide katelyn,... More

This is our third visit to The Wilds and we had a wonderful time. Our guild was knowledgeable, funny and would answer any question the group brought up. This was our first trip with our 5 year old granddaughter and she enjoyed the close up encounters with the camels, ostrich, horses and other endangered animals. Strongly recommend a visit to... More
