My family and I went to Lake Tobias on a nice day back in Aug 2014. We drove a bit over 100 miles to get there. Paid admission and the extra for the safari tour at the parking entrance (no parking fee). Headed right to the safari tour line as the waiting line was very short (we got there just... More

We drove 3 hours just to visit the wildlife park. Worth it!! If you don't do anything else, spend the extra 6$ for the safari. The animals come RIGHT UP TO YOU and eat out of your hand! Bison, elk, deer, llamas- sooo cool! Not to mention the rest of the park...

My wife grew-up about 15 minutes from Lake Tobias and insisted that when our two children were a old enough that we visit, which we did, along with her parents and our two nephews. Upon arrival, we paid at a booth while still in our vehicle (parking is free) and were quickly parked and ready to explore. We decided to... More

This was a side-trip for us. Took about 30 minutes from the Hershey/Harrisburg area. The drive was scenic on quiet mountain roads. The Safari leader, Jim, was knowledgeable to say the least - he was a retired veterinarian turned zookeeper. Fun ride and although the tour was only supposed to be 45 mins we were out just over an hour.... More

While camping nearby we seen a flyer, so we decided to visit Tobias Wildlife. Was very pleased we did. It's a must do if you have children! The food at the concession was reasonably priced and tasty!! All of the employees were friendly and helpful. Our group consisted of ages 18 months to 10 years of age for the children... More

Staff - very friendly. Grounds - clean, bathrooms - located throughout, clean. Pavilion covered picnic tables, playground areas for small children. Not overwhelming in size/area, In my opinion especially good for families with smaller kids and mature folks. Don't think there's enough excitement for the teens. Safari (main draw) was very good - GO EARLY and get on the bus... More

My family and I have been to Lake Tobias each summer for the past several years. We look forward to it every year and the kids always seem to love it. If you go, the safari ride is a must. You can purchase crackers to feed to the aminals during the ride. They will come right up to the bus... More

While in the Hershey area for vacation I saw a sign for this wildlife park and Safari. I decided to check it out on our way home. Wow...sure glad I did. My 11 year old son had a blast. It is a pretty small "zoo", but the safari is really fun. He was amazed to see the animals up so... More

We have been to this place couple of times. It's a must see place if you have young children. The safari is very good. You can see all animals coming to the safari bus, and allow you to feed the animals. Better than visiting a zoo. They have reptile show, pet zoo. Note: Try to reach there for the early... More

Wow! This was a great safari tour and zoo! It is much better than a zoo because all the animals are much closer! The safari tour was one of a kind that could be found in Pennsylvania!!! On the safari tour, the zookeeper gave a great background on the zoo and told us all about the animals. He really knew... More
