Wildlife Safari is a non-profit AZA accredited zoological park dedicated to conservation, education and research since its inception in 1972.

Visitors to the park drive through a 4.5 mile trek to see animals from Africa, Asia and the America’s. This unique setting offers many opportunities to get up close and personal with animals large and small. The free Safari Village is home to over 100 unique animals, a petting zoo, beautiful gardens, the Gift Shop, Safari Village Café and the White Rhino Event Center.

It's close to Roseburg. I went there on Monday at 10 am when it was just opened. It's quiet and we could spend much time on the road as long as we liked, staying close to the animals and took lots of pictures leisurely without the worry of lots of traffic around. You can go in twice but that was... More

After hearing from numerous friends and family about the the wildlife safari, we decided to take our 2 20 somethings. We went on a Thursday morning. It was amazing. The variety of animals is like nothing we had imagined. For starters...before you even start the safari, go see the animals that they have in their habitats near the gift shop/restaurant.... More

VERY family friendly, but only certain animals can be seen in winter. Parts of the park/attractions are closed seasonally

Loved this place. It is way better than your usual zoo. This place is great for all age groups that loves animals. It takes about 2 hours and you can re-enter before it closes. Definitely bring a camera and video.

We just took my son and his wife and 22 month old daughter to the Safari. We enjoyed it, and my granddaughter was enthralled! The only complaint I had was the early closure of the walking portion. We were there at 3:30 and the café had closed at 3:00 and the activities were over. My advice is to go earlier... More

Wildlife safari makes a nice outing in the comfort of your vehicle, lots of animals out the window including elephant, giraffe, monkeys, big cats etc. As well there is a small animal walk through zoo and snack bar. Depending upon your schedule the drive through can be done in 45 min. or so, but you could spend alot more time... More

We were afraid the rain would keep them in their cover but after feeding time they were out on the road and were keeping our windows up : )

My daughter and I had our second visit to Wildlife Safari and once again, we were not disappointed. We went on 1/1/15 - cold, quiet, barely anyone there. The animals were cold and not too visible so my brilliant girl suggested we go on some animal encounters instead of the drive through. We went on the giraffe encounter in the... More

I enjoy Wildlife Safari every time I go there, and they keep making iterative improvements. The latest thing we noticed is that there is now a lion viewing platform in the village area, where you can go observe the four lions up to their ramblings & naps. It's great fun around the holidays; we got to watch a giraffe bend... More

My wife & I took out two boys aged 10 & 3. We had asked friends in Salem their opinion, and they highly recommended. We arrived about 11AM Cold late December morning.Look like very few people at the entrance. Before we drove to the ticket book, walked kids past the cheetah exhibit, quick pitstop at restrooms. At the ticket booth,... More
