Great time driving through the different areas. Hard to see the big cats b/c it was late morning and a hot day and they were hiding under trees in shade. Took more time than planned b/c I took lots of photos. Interesting animals. All staff were extremely friendly. Be aware of the 'pan handlers'...animals looking for the cups of food... More

The drive thru was fun too... it was hot so a lot of animals were hiding in the shade or sleeping but the animals we... More

Be sure to go early in the morning or late in the evening. Most of the animals are sleeping or standing in the shade mid day. The camel ride was too expensive at $10 for a 2-min ride. (and no one was waiting.) The elephant car wash has been discontinued.

My husband and I took our 25 year old daughter and fiancé here on weekend camping trip activity and we all loved it. We highly recommend the purchase of food at the park for 5 dollars and feeding the animals in one section of the park. Hold some food as you will have lots of opportunities to feed the animals...

We took the driving tour, took about an hour and a half. It was amazing. We got beautiful photos. If you do choose to go, go first thing in the morning, as the animals are most likely out and about. After it get too warm, they nap and are in the shade. You can also pay a bit extra to... More

Really beautiful safari park--wildlife is in areas by region and you can drive through at your leisure. All the animals were active even though it was a warm day. If you include some of the animal encounters, this can be a full-day outing. This was shy of a 5-star only because of some of the aging facilities.

You're lo lo locked in your car, and the animals are free. What a journey in time. The day we decided to go was a beautiful clear day. The animals were actually doing more than just "pacing" against the walls of a cage. How impressive to see Brown bears in a mock habitat enjoying the water, playing and interacting with... More

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
