My entire family of all ages just loves to come here. Just make sure you dont bother washing your car first :) being able to also get out to walk and see a few additional things makes for a great chance to get out and stretch your legs for a small break before heading back on the road, for anyone...

I never laughed so hard when the slobbering buffalo stuck his head inside my car. LOL You must by the food and feed the animals from your car. Lots of fun.

I've been to the park about 4 times over the years. The zoo area has greatly improved and there is a decent collection of animals. Plenty to keep kids entertained. My problem was the back up in getting in the drive through portion. It took us over two hours to go through what would be maybe a ten - twenty... More

This place amazing. I go almost once a week. If customers are getting upset it's only because they have no clue on how it is on busy days. Love the Rangers. They are soooo nice.

get ready for a close encounter with some wildlife. these friendly creatures will stick their heads into your car in search of food. it's unnerving at first, but the animals are quite docile. buy extra carrots instead of grain...the animals love the carrots. CAUTION: you WILL get animal drool all over and (possibly) in your car! a small deer also... More

We had a great time at the African Safari. We had a groupon for the tickets and bought a $16.00 food pack for the animals. It was 2 full cups of feed and one bag of carrots. I think the carrots are kind of expensive since the animals prefer the carrots and you don't get many in the bag. Another... More

Had a nice time at the Wildlife Park. I was surprised to see buffalo roaming and it its quite intimidating when they come up to your car. The park has plenty of employees through the entire area on golf carts. The move the animals away from the vehicles to keep the traffic moving. It seems they are there to protect... More

I was very disappointed to see employees on their golf carts running into the animals. A gentleman got out of his golf cart and was screaming like a mad man at the bison to move, this was also the same one who was hitting them along with a female to move along. I think their is a better approach than... More

We had a great time at the Safari, the kids really loved it. We had never been before so were not quite sure what to expect first hand. When we went it was quite busy but it's kind of to be expected until late in the day. You have to be patient when going through this and not expect to... More

I recently took my 3 year old granddaughter to African Wildlife Safari. Great day! The walk through area was shaded and comfortable on a hot day. Definitely not zoo quality displays; but just right for a young child. The drive through portion was exciting to my granddaughter as the animals poked their head right into car windows. Only problem was... More
