Good food, Average Service.

Good food! Service was average. Family restroom was outside adjacent to the restaurants. Staff was not knowledgeable about locations.

Bought tickets at Costco $19.99 adults and $16.99 children so saved enough for treat at African Lion Safari. There is a lot to see and do for adults and children alike. Elephant bath, parrot and other animal shows, train rides, elephant ride, of course the safari and much more. Line ups to buy food were quite long but moved fairly... More

We visited with our grandson on a rainy day. We were delighted with our trip . The animals looked like they were well taken care of and comfortable as it was us who were caged. We were very impressed with the shows and thought that it was well worth the admission price. The presentation deserves our support as they attempt... More

The 11 yr old not so much. The bird shows were great. Do the safari early as possible or as late as... More

There are a number of dinning places in the park, but we liked Mombasa Market Restaurant as it had a variety of snacks like burgers, pizza, salads amongst other things. There is a licensed bar too. Value for money.

My family and I enjoyed our day at African Lion Safari and appreciated the variety of animals and activities that it offered. Seeing the animals in the safari tour up close was really amazing and provides a great opportunity for young children that you can't offer at other zoos. I would definitely recommend going on the bus and not driving... More
