This was our first time at The Wilds. We took the Open Air Safari and our tour guide Chrissy was awesome. She was clearly passionate about what she does. For the 10,000 acres that The Wilds owns there aren't enough animals. There are plenty of deer-like animals but not enough of the wow type animals. Rhinos, giraffe, and zebra were... More

The open air tour was very interesting! You learn a lot of facts about the animals while driving past. The drivers do make a few stops so be prepared to walk a little. If you are lucky you get to interact with animals as they approach the bus which is really neat! Pricing is excellent!!!! One warning is it is... More

Had a great time. I have been on safari before, but this is different. The personnel are entertaining and enthusiastic and knowledgeable at every turn. Our guide, Jordan, was awesome. We saw baby Zebras writhing 3 feet! Out of the way but the directions were awesome. Only problem was the return trip. If you don't pay attention, you could have... More

The zip line at the wilds was a great adventure. The zip was awesome and the guides were fun and had a lot of information about the part and the animals there.

We have been here many times and it never gets old. The staff are always friendly and so informative. You know the animals are well cared for and the research is so important. Great place to visit with the whole family.

Three of us went on the zipline safari tour. Our tour gudes were Austin and Mac. They were fabulous! They were well trained and made sure that our safety was their top priority. We had a great time! Two people from our group went on the Wild Side Safari Tour. They were able to feed a giraffe and go right... More

Spent a great day and evening at the Wilds. Fantastic wild life site with fantastic animals and views and really enthusiastic staff. Rosie our tour guide was funnier than Ellen Degeneres. Has achieved a wonderful balance between the beauty of the animals and the paying customer - shows real sensitivity. Was lucky to spend a night in one of their... More

Everyone needs to experience The Wilds. You tour the 10,000 acres in a vehicle of your choice ( price depedant, of course. We opted for the $30 open safari bus and loved it). Your driver guide has a wealth of knowledge and will get you as close to the animals as he can. After the 2 1/2 hour tour you... More

Stayed at Nomad Ridge July 20th, 2014 with my boyfriend for his birthday. This place really is doing wonderful work. We checked in and headed down to our yurt which was really nice. My one complaint about our yurt was someone had left a bar of soap with hair stuck in it in the shower. We removed it with a... More

We went for the open air safari with our kids 5 and 7, and it was very easy to forget that we were in the countryside in Ohio. Our tour guide was very informative and entertaining, and took her time to explain all about the purpose of The Wilds - conservation - and how their success is all about breeding... More
