Our whole family enjoyed the experience! A 4 year old, 14 year old and two parents spent 3 hours exploring the park. The drive through was great, with lots of animals around to see. We rode the train; which is really only suited for YOUNG kids. (our four year old loved it, but not because of the content) Plan plenty... More

I never knew that some zebras have 3 colors instead of just two. This adventure was a part of our original planning but, the day before we left on vacation we were delighted to be able to purchase a Groupon for this visit! The cost is $18 per person & you get to drive through twice, which I highly recommend... More

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
