We decided to drive in our own vehicle to ensure a good look and chat about all the animals. Such a good decision! We we just a few feet from the giraffe drinking from the pond. The zebra came over to peer inside our car. The monkeys were tailgating the car in front of us giving us quite a show.... More

We were originally planning to take the bus but at the last minute decided to go in our car and it was god decision.... More

It was good to see the animals but the water park was the best I've seen other than Disney. Every child there wanted to stay there, they did not want to leave the water park! I can appreciate the costs involved in feeding the animals, care.... I don't know how families can afford to go to this place, it's so... More

The big draw back of this place is the cost. For a family of four the cost was just over $120. This does not include the bus around the safari (which I would recommend as monkeys climbed all over every vehicle and ripped the wing mirror off a car beside us). The bus is a further $15. We didn't realise... More

We loved watching the animals at such close range and there were plenty to see. One of the ostrich detained us and caused a bit of traffic when he stood right next to our car and started pecking at the window. The baboons never bothered us and the lions and giraffes were pretty far, but it was nice to see... More

It had been almost 30 years since my last visit and I was very excited to be bringing my 2 girls, age 4 and 8....and we weren't disappointed. We stayed at an area hotel and our tickets were included...it was about $200 taxes included for hotel, breakfast and our tickets - 2 adults, 2 children. We started and ended our... More

Had a great time at the Safari, lots of things for all ages, our grandkids range from age 8 to 2 and they had a blast. Shows were great, took a tour in the bus around the park, this was good as our bus driver give us details of the animals we saw. Waterpark comes highly recommended there was something... More

If you want to see unique animals up close - you must go here! We took the bus through first (didn't want the baboons to eat my wifes new car!),....then we drive through ourselves at our leisure (and by-passed the baboons)! What great photo's and super experience.
