Wildlife Safari is a non-profit AZA accredited zoological park dedicated to conservation, education and research since its inception in 1972. Wildlife Safari is a fun-filled family destination where you can view over 500 animals in their natural habitat roaming freely much as they do in the wild! 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.

My mother, my aunt, my 4 children ages from 11-2 and I all went through the drive through And the village. It was A-Mazing!! My 2 year old sat on my lap and was absolutely enthralled with the animals. I'm not typically a zoo loving person. This was nothing like a zoo. The Bears seemed extremely happy while playing and...

I am a little leery of off the beaten path wildlife parks as you never know what the quality of care for animals will be. After reading great reviews though we decided to stop on road trip to California with sister and my toddler son. I just was so impressed! It was definitely more of a "Safari" than a zoo.... More

Visited Wildlife Safari with my wife and 1 1/2 year old this past week. We ended up using a groupon and feel like we got a deal. You'll come across all types of animals from around the world, many of which you really get up close and personal with. You stay in your car during the drive through portion of... More

My family was a bit skeptical, as we've been to game parks in South Africa three times. We had a Groupon though, so decided to give it a try. We expected it to be a bit hokey, but were pleasantly surprised. One of our party had never been to a game park or even a zoo (!) so having two... More

We take friends and family who are visiting the area to Wildlife Safari. There are pink flamingos near the gift shop. Stroll around the display area inside the entrance. There is a cheetah, small animals, eagle, etc. Your drive through the wildlife area is fun and interesting. Animals - birds - etc. Well laid out and easy to navigate. You... More

It's close to Roseburg. I went there on Monday at 10 am when it was just opened. It's quiet and we could spend much time on the road as long as we liked, staying close to the animals and took lots of pictures leisurely without the worry of lots of traffic around. You can go in twice but that was... More

After hearing from numerous friends and family about the the wildlife safari, we decided to take our 2 20 somethings. We went on a Thursday morning. It was amazing. The variety of animals is like nothing we had imagined. For starters...before you even start the safari, go see the animals that they have in their habitats near the gift shop/restaurant.... More

VERY family friendly, but only certain animals can be seen in winter. Parts of the park/attractions are closed seasonally

Loved this place. It is way better than your usual zoo. This place is great for all age groups that loves animals. It takes about 2 hours and you can re-enter before it closes. Definitely bring a camera and video.
