We just took my son and his wife and 22 month old daughter to the Safari. We enjoyed it, and my granddaughter was enthralled! The only complaint I had was the early closure of the walking portion. We were there at 3:30 and the café had closed at 3:00 and the activities were over. My advice is to go earlier... More

Wildlife safari makes a nice outing in the comfort of your vehicle, lots of animals out the window including elephant, giraffe, monkeys, big cats etc. As well there is a small animal walk through zoo and snack bar. Depending upon your schedule the drive through can be done in 45 min. or so, but you could spend alot more time... More

We were afraid the rain would keep them in their cover but after feeding time they were out on the road and were keeping our windows up : )

My daughter and I had our second visit to Wildlife Safari and once again, we were not disappointed. We went on 1/1/15 - cold, quiet, barely anyone there. The animals were cold and not too visible so my brilliant girl suggested we go on some animal encounters instead of the drive through. We went on the giraffe encounter in the... More

I enjoy Wildlife Safari every time I go there, and they keep making iterative improvements. The latest thing we noticed is that there is now a lion viewing platform in the village area, where you can go observe the four lions up to their ramblings & naps. It's great fun around the holidays; we got to watch a giraffe bend... More

My wife & I took out two boys aged 10 & 3. We had asked friends in Salem their opinion, and they highly recommended. We arrived about 11AM Cold late December morning.Look like very few people at the entrance. Before we drove to the ticket book, walked kids past the cheetah exhibit, quick pitstop at restrooms. At the ticket booth,... More

You cannot miss this. Talk about a visit to other continents, well you'll see it here. Does not matter what time of the year, there something for everyone. Just to let you know, you will return time and time again. Very knowledgable attendants, super friendly and everything you would expect. Great location.

We went the weekend after Thanksgiving. The weather was freezing and rainy for much of the day. We did the village/walking part first before the weather got really bad, and enjoyed seeing the petting zoo animals, lemurs, and other critters around the loop. The place is very well laid out and easy to navigate. We opted for the giraffe feeding... More
