Great visit - perfect for all ages. If you have kids, be sure to buy the feed cups!

Had a great time in the park. Be sure you have time to do the driving portion and still leave time for walking around the village. Very clean, lots of healthy looking animals... read more

Had a great time in the park. Be sure you have time to do the driving portion and still leave time for walking around the village. Very clean, lots of healthy looking animals, park is in pretty good shape. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Customer service was top notch! Would highly recommend for families - old and young alike.... More

Not wanting to be overly critical but not experience we thought it would be. Maybe our problem is that we chose this for a destination for an experience we had planned on eventually doing for the grand kids. I think it would be better taken in as a side trip on a road trip. As you drive through, you can... More

This place is really cool. You can go twice if you want to also! The bear was out roaming around, the rhino, giraffe, and others. The big cats were a little scarce, it was hot out, and they were hiding in the shade barely noticed them. Maybe next time. I do recommend you also go walk around and see the... More

The animals were well taken care of and for the most part seemed very happy. The tour is taken in your own vehicle and lasts roughly 1.25 hours depending how many times you stop to view the animals. There is also a walk through village with a petting farm. There are many opportunities to get close with the animals through... More

I have not been here a few years, quite the changes! We took our son there and went on the camel ride, which my son thought was so cool that he has a Jockey license for Camels. Then for $15 we were off to feed the Giraffe, we drove out with the tour guide who a pleasure to ride with.

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
