“Wild Animals up close!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

A great place to see wild animals in a 'natural' habitat in the safety of your auto. It is a different experience than a zoo visit.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The reviews have it right. Don't expect the Sahara or the San Diego Zoo, and you'll be pleased. If you have little kids, the splash pad / water park is great!

We drove our own vehicle and would recommend it. As long as you aren't opening your windows, you will be fine.

“Unusual experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went to see African Lion Safari with visiting friends and we all like it very much. A lot of animals running wild around your car (btw, if your car is brand new you may think to use special buses for the tour). Some of the animals - ostriches, monkeys, zebras - are extremely curios and rub on the car and try to sneak through the windows - if you break the rules and open them. They have number of shows with animals - you'll be amazed how clever these wild animals are. Overall - unforgettable experience, worthy of visiting it.

“Animals animals animals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

You can drive through yourself or take a bus through which is nice if you don't want damage to your car. The animals are in a almost natural surroundings like in the wild.
This is a great place to take kids,they all love animals.
There's a petting zoo there too.
The down fall is the food is way over priced but on the up side they need the money to feed there animals.
