المكان بعيد عن صخب المدينة، وأسعار الدخول معقولة، ويمكنك الدخول بسيارتك الخاصة لتتجول بين الحيوانات إذا رغبت. بعد الجولة يمكنك الاستمتاع بالمطعم الموجود بالموقع وكذلك المسبح الألعاب المائية الملحقة بالحديقة. Away from the noise of the city, fair prices, & you can hang out between...More

Wonderful value for the money. Great water park for families. Wildlife shows are excellent and informative. Loved the bus that takes you through the safari as kids can move around to see wildlife. Highly recommend

Great place for kids. Quite pricey to get in especially if you did not purchase tickets ahead somewhere like Costco. It would not be a place to do over and over as it is very pricey and if you want to take the bus through...More

Great day trip for family and friends. Nowhere else can you get this close to wild animals. Skip the monkey spot on the drive if you enjoy your cars antenna!

Took the family out for something new, as we have never tried Africans lion safari. When it comes to value we felt it was a far price to pay for the entrance to the grounds. The stars are animals and they have a fair variety,...More

We took our little one in the summer. There's a ton of things to see but we didn't get to all because we had a toddler and it can be a little tiring and overwhelming after a few hours. We took the tour bus not...More

We have a season pass and love going with our toddler. He has a great time - there’s a good selection of animals and the bus is a good alternative to having to drive your car through all the animals.

I finally went to the African Lion Safari. It was, as advertised, an excellent wildlife park, and I enjoyed myself thoroughly as a solo adult visitor. Some days you just need to get away from the horrific state of the world and politics and watch...More

African Lion Safari was great. The savanna tour was awesome and the animal shows were great. Other than that I find this attraction more geared to younger kids.
