This animal attraction is beautiful. Ostrich's, buffalo, and deers oh my! So many cool animals coming so close to your car you actually need to stop to let them by. Try to go in the morning because the animals are much more active. The kids were squealing when we were able to feed the deer and emu from the front... More

We had a great time at Wildlife Safari. This was our first trip down to the park but it won't be our last. There are many varieties of animals to enjoy as you drive through on your safari. Speed limit is 10 miles an hour so there is plenty of time to stop and look all around and see all... More

Day one, attraction one, on our 5 day roadtrip to the Oregon Caves and Redwoods. This was AWESOME. I've lived in Oregon my whole 41 yr life and never been (never much heard of either). It was astonishing. About 3 hrs from Portland. Drive thru in your own car, at your own pace. Never been so close close to such... More

We had such a great time today. There were so many different kinds of animals to see. I loved the birds and african animals. My 8 and 12 yr old foster kids loved it.

This summer, my husband and I took our 14 yr old daughter and 2 year old son and both equally enjoyed the Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon. My 2 year old loved the petting zoo, play area and train ride, and my 14 year old loved the drive through the animals, especially getting to feed some of them through the... More

I loved this experience as a kid, and it hasn't changed at all. My teenagers loved feeding the animals, and we rode the camels. Prices are excellent - admission is about $15, and camel rides were $10. Loved it! They have free kennels for your pets while you are visiting.

I grew up in Roseburg and had been here several times. I always left thinking that the animals were always hiding and all I'd see were birds and deer. Fast forward 30 years and that's all changed. We saw LOTS of animals. Giraffe, Elephants, Hippo, Rhino, Llama, Ostrich, Elk, Cheetah, Lion, Tiger, Bears... etc. We spent approximately 2.5 hours there... More

Read some great reviews and decided to swing by on our way back to CA. Frankly, I'm not a very patience individual and was immediately annoyed with the long line to pay. I was even more annonyed with the idiot who stopped his car for 10 minutes in front of the lion cage. Be considerate and have your $ ready... More

This trip was very reasonable due to the "groupon" we purchased for half price! The small animal zoo next to the large "drive-thru" park is FREE! They have yummy Icecream treats and a little café for a quick lunch. The Cats were on the prowl the day we were there and they have adorable Cheetah kittens. We loved the drive... More

We've been to one other drive thru wildlife park in Florida. This one was similar, but in one area gave you the ability to feed animals. Mostly ostrich's, emu's, deers. They come up to the car window & their head will come INTO the car! The kids absolutely loved it, at times we had to partially roll up the windows... More
