We enjoyed this very much. There were quite a few animals out and they looked well tended and the place was very clean. A great time for animal lovers.

This was well worth the $17.99 entrance fee (minus a AAA discount). We fed animals out of kibble cups, took tons of photos, walked around the safari village and watched children feed goats (so funny), and relished the sight of so many animals in one place ranging freely (mostly) about the property. Loved the llama welcome committee on the side... More

I took my 88 year old mother on a road trip to California, and on our last day on the way home we stopped to see the wildlife safari. They give you a seniors rate, and we had a blast. We followed a Car in front of us and stopped at the same places they would stop and look, we... More

We choose a bad time to visit...mid day and it was hot. So most of the animals were off napping or otherwise staying out of sight. Did see a few critters, including a giraffe, several bears playing in a pond, some bison, a couple of elephants and an assortment of antelope and deer. The cats were pretty much out of... More

One of My daughter's favorite things on our family trip. the drive through was interesting, but she really loved the Asia section where you can feed the deer and emus. The walking areas are pretty tame, but the drive through was worth it. A side note: there is an eatery outside the gates called Noah's Ark- it is not affiliated... More

THE best place to visit. Have been there numerous times but the first for the friend who accompanied me. She was very satisfied. The day was cloudy which is excellent for having the most animals out and about. Will go again later this Summer. Watch for entry specials.

They have a well designed site to travel in your own car so see and photograph the animals, and feed them in one section. It takes a good hour to travel through their course and a slow pace being able to stop when you want and let other pass you if they do not want to wait, so the pacing... More

I have been coming to Wildlife Safari with the kids for over 8 years now. We have had giraffes look into our car, and emus give us kisses. We once got to witness the bears wrestling and we could hear them hitting the ground. They were so close. It's a great zoo, and the animals seem happy and well cared... More

I just visited Grand Teton and Yellowstone Nat'l parks this past May so I was a bit hesitant about how great this could be after seeing all the wildlife in those parks. But found a Groupon online that "dared" me to go. Since we were in Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival, we decided to take a day trip to the... More
