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.

My husband and I went. This place is better than the portland zoo. We spent hours driving around. Then we thought we would go see the gift shop and go...there is not just a giftshop. There was a petting zoo, train ride, camel rides, restaurant, exhibits...so much to look at. We were there for about four hours. We would have... More

We were lucky to see as many animals as we did. Of course it was spring so maybe that helped. The rain cleared and we had a beautiful day for viewing. The park was set up in stations according to different countries that the animals originated from. There were a lot of big cats, deer, antelope, buffalo (they are huge)... More

Just off I-5. It was a bit pricey but totally worth it. Your ticket is valid for two trips on the same day. We saw a lot of different animals some where sleeping (bears) but still adorable. You can buy a cup of food to feed the animals for $5 and other perks that will cost you additional money like... More

To start with, never go when it is Oregon's Spring break. Can you say, busy. That said, LOVED IT!!! You can take a picnic lunch and eat in two separate designated areas. It is a must do on anyone's list.

We stopped in to see the Wildlife Safari on our return trip to Washington from a WA-OR-CA Coastal Spring Break Vacation. The wildlife park is located in Winston, approximately 3 miles off I-5 and getting there and back is very well marked. We arrived in the afternoon and were able to use our Woodland Park zoo membership for a discounted... More

We went on Spring Break after the rainy days ended. We arrived about 10 or 11 am and were in a line of cars. That did not affect our drive thru the park. When we were ready to visit the village the staff were inventing parking slots for all of the extra cars. Even so, the walk-thru areas were fine.... More

We love coming here because the staff is friendly and informative. My daughter loves the animals and they have attractions for all ages. The free kennels are great and they offer bowls and water. Just remember to bring a lock!

My mother, my aunt, my 4 children ages from 11-2 and I all went through the drive through And the village. It was A-Mazing!! My 2 year old sat on my lap and was absolutely enthralled with the animals. I'm not typically a zoo loving person. This was nothing like a zoo. The Bears seemed extremely happy while playing and...
