We went there especially for the safari tour, however the safari tour has very limited type of animals, mainly different breed of Deer. May be that is why the cost of safari tour is low. Was good to see Lion & Lioness in full view. You could also pet animals in a different section. Overall a good place kids.

We stumbled upon this place and were a little unsure at first. We did the safari tour and it was so much fun for all three of us (wife, 6yr old son, and myself). We couldn't believe the interaction that you can get with so many different species of animals. Will go again and hopefully soon!

This is a fun place to visit and see the different animals of the world up close. Take a ride on the open air bus and get up close to the animals. Feed them from the bus and just maybe they may try to get on the bus with you. Enjoy the petting zoo and different birds.

We took our grandchildren to Lake Tobias for the day and had a great time. They loved seeing the animals and especially liked the safari ride. Our grandson really enjoyed the reptile show. They were allowed to see some of the reptiles up close and touch them.

My family came here about 12 years ago and boy has it changed for the better. The safari is always enjoyable but make sure to buy the animal feed crackers before you get on the bus. The animals get right next to the bus and are really only interested in those people with food. I was most impressed with the... More

We had an awesome visit to Lake Tobias. It is well worth the $12 for admission plus the safari. For the most part, I was very pleased with the amount of room that the animals have to roam (minus the lions and bears, their enclosures were too small in my opinion). The safari was great, we got up close and... More
