My advise , take the safari bus as you will get better views through their large windows. you can also move from left to right seat if the bus is not so crowded. Thee buses are available every 15 minutes, so there are lots of vacant seats.

Prepare for an outing like NO other! Enjoy the animals up close and personal....either in your own vehicle (Keep the windows UP) or enjoy the narration and air-conditioned tram thru the reserves! Take in bird and elephant shows! And enjoy the water park and all the sites and sounds!

This is a great place to spend the entire day with the entire family. Lots to see and do, the main attraction being the safari. Their are playgrounds and a splash pad in the summer. It is a long day and maybe not so enjoyable for the very young (under 2 years old) in my opinion but a memorable experience... More

What an awesome place to have right in your backyard! Save yourselves the aggravation of having to clean your car after your visit and spring for the bus! It's well worth it with the higher vantage point and sparkly clean windows to take pictures out of. The bathing elephants are adorable!

We opted to pay for the Bus ride since my cousin was not chancing a monkey tearing a wiper blade off his BMW X5 :-) We were happy with that decision since we were able to all sit together and enjoy all the animals. Also, the bus driver gave us a nice description of the animals and their history at... More

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 visited Sept long weekend and it was great trip. We bought the tickets from Costco and it is few dollars cheaper that at the entrance. We also bought the book for $5 at the entrance. 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
