They do a real nice job presenting wildlife in a semi natural habitat. It seems like the special programs have waned a little bit in recent years, but if you have a family it is a nice outing.

This is one of our 'go to' places when we have out of town visitors. The drive through the park is interesting and there is a nice variety of different types of animals to view from different geographical areas. In the heat of the summer, go in the cool of the morning for best viewing, or at feeding time (for... More

I may have picked the perfect time to visit this place. At the end of a hot dry summer on another sunny day in Souther Oregon. The drive through portion of the trip provided a large number of great photographs of large collection of animals. It is a very wide open area with many animals sharing the environment the varried...

we decided to visit here on our Oregon trip. Was a good stopover before hitting Crater Lake and Bend. Our zoo membership from home got us 50% off which was great. Takes about an hour to do the drive through portion. You get tickets to drive through a second time at no charge but our kids were tired so we... More

This is a wonderful family outing - there are all sorts of animals wandering around and there are one's that are "screened in" but very viewable. I think my favorite was a black bear and her cub - just watching us as we watched them. Everything is outdoors so you get the feel of true nature. We also met a... More

Wildlife as they should be seen in as natural a setting as possible. Always enjoy this wonderful drive through park as well as the area where you can see some of the animals and birds up close. A very nice restaurant offers some good food. Highly recommend Wildlife Safari.

I had looked forward to the Wildlife Safari all summer, my best friend and I planned a sightseeing trip to places in southern Oregon and northern California. I was surprised that it turned out to be kind of boring. If you want to see lots of animals go to the zoo.
