Wildlife Safari is a non-profit AZA accredited zoological park dedicated to conservation, education and research since its inception in 1972.

Visitors to the park drive through a 4.5 mile trek to see animals from Africa, Asia and the America’s. This unique setting offers many opportunities to get up close and personal with animals large and small. The free Safari Village is home to over 100 unique animals, a petting zoo, beautiful gardens, the Gift Shop, Safari Village Café and the White Rhino Event Center.

I love feeding the animals from my car. It was so nice seeing animals run free. Or they have lots of room to do so. I want to go again but next time take the kids.

I took my son here for two days. It was so much fun to watch how excited he was to see the animals as we drove through the park. He loved the rhinos, the different kinds of deer, elk, the bison and the elephants. This trip we did several experiences to interact with the animals. Loved spending time with George... More

This summer we decided to keep ourselves closer to home. We took our grandson's ages 13 & 9 to the Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon. We spent several nights in Sutherlin so we actually had a vacation. Pricing for the Wildlife Safari was a little high but if you factor in you get (2) drive throughs then all was good.... More

Dirty dead grounds everywhere, dusty rocky road, very few animals, ones we did see appeared unhappy and miserable, and ground water for animals was slimy green, in the entire wetlands area we saw 2 birds. Only part we liked was ability to feed the deer in one area but one small cup was 5.00. we parked after the drive through... More

Wildlife Safari is a great place to stop along the way. One hint to save money is to purchase you tickets somewhere else. We got our tickets at the Seven Feathers Casino RV Park. They will cost you $10 each and you will save about $5 each on the entrance fee. We took our grandkids who are 8 and 10.... More

Many of the comments below from July 2015 were true for us, too. We arrived around 10 am and left 4 hours later. If you have the time, take it. Lots of Calif drivers were in a big hurry! Was great the roadway is wide enough for cars to go by if they want to move along while others linger.... More

My good friend and I took my 5 yr old son over to Wildlife Safari yesterday. We arrived a little after opening (9 am) and after a 1.5 hr drive we had a restroom break which allowed us to walk past the young cheetah and her puppy friend located within the free area of the park. The cheetah was sleeping... More

Really cool that kids get to see some of the animals up close and personal. Some of the other animals - cheetahs, bears, tigers - were not so visible.

Lots of interaction with the animals. Had to be patient with other cars, but we had snacks to keep us busy if there was a traffic jam. But we contributed to said traffic jams as well
