Great safari through Africa, Europe, Asia and America + Attractions
Oct 2020
We spent two nights and two days with our kids in this park at the beginning of October. We really had the time to see and enjoy everything since we did not have any queues neither in the safari nor in the attractions. There are restrictions due to corona prevention measures, like not feeding the elephants or getting close to monkeys. Nevertheless was a great experience and would highly recommend a visit. For the safari we did first the bus tour in the morning (6 € per person) and the Big Five Tour in the afternoon (22 € per person). It is also possible to drive with own car, but it is not allowed to open the doors or windows or feed the animals. Therefore we decided to get the tour and have the chance to open windows doors and feed giraffes. To sleep we booked a Dschungel Lodge for 4 people. Good price-quality relation, close to the reception, to the tours, to the restaurant and to the attractions.
Regarding the restaurant, prevention measures for Covid were properly followed although it was a buffet. Breakfast was "ok". We missed there more fruit, croissants, sausages, bread choice, etc. We had dinner only once there and would not recommend it. We found it too expensive for the choice and quality.

Safari was fun, everything else could be significantly improved
Aug 2020 • Family
Driving through the Safari Park in our own car was fun - and we got close to a number of animals such as a Giraffe that put her head into our car. The amusement park part features mainly outdated rides and is not worth visiting, or maybe just briefly if you travel with young kids (like ours aged 7 and 5) that don’t need more than a simple carousel type of ride.

At a number of instances we felt that the experience could easily be improved. The mind-boggling part is that many of these measures would also improve profitability for the owners, so really not sure why they do things the way they do:

- All the Special Safaris (VIP Jeep Safari, Big Five Safari, etc.) cannot be booked online but only on the day itself in-person at a booth that opens at 9:15 am. On a busy day, a queue starts to form from 8 a.m. and you want to be in it early to secure tickets.

- They refuse to provide glasses or cups with drinks bought at the bistro („because of Corona“) but if you buy a milkshake it comes in a cup ...

- The main restaurant does indoor seating for lunches and dinners only (in spite of Corona, poor air circulation, 30 degrees Celsius and a large outdoor terrace with tables and chairs).

- There is no kiosk or convenience store on-site, so even if you stay at the resort, there is no place to buy water, beer or a toothpaste without driving into town.

In sum: If you are in the area and favor a drive-through Safari in your own car, go for it. But would not recommend an overnight stay or the outdated amusement park.

A great day!
Aug 2019
Rating this one may be a bit difficult. In our case, it was clearly a highlight of the trip, yet we made sure to check all the necessary boxes. First of all, we were focused towards animals. The entertainment section was just to extend the stay, and it did just that. If you have these priorities reversed, you would be better off with a full-scale amusement park. Secondly, if you were forced to use the bus instead your own car you would probably drop the rating by two. Not only your time with animals is reduced by at least half (I guess more), and you are deprived of comfort, setting your own priorities, but… you also have to pay extra. Not the best strategy. Thirdly, we prepared a basket of carrots and apple pieces. There are places designed to feed elephants and you should take advantage of it. Such fun for children. Frankly, a lot of animals that wander around hunt for a treat and the worst you could do is to give them a cookie or something else that might actually hurt them. Just don’t. Fourthly, you simply need a bit of luck. If you think stroking a deer or a bison is unexpected, try a giraffe that puts its head inside the car and your children figuring out how to react, a white tiger crossing the road just by your car, an African ostrich actively exploring the possibilities of eating your car’s mirrors or an antelope in “you shall not pass” mode. Fifthly, as luck is not granted, you would be wise to take a camera with a reasonable optical zoom that that you won’t find in your mobile device. Don’t feel rushed, other cars can always overtake you. Finally, after parking and testing some rides located in the entertainment section do not miss further animal attractions there. Petting safari where you walk among alpacas, goats and donkeys may be yesterday’s news to adults (but not necessarily for children, and one alpha-personality goat literally attempted exceptionally bold robbery of our carrot/apple basket leftovers, which caused general amusement). Jungle lodges on the other hand were made unforgettable by lemurs climbing on people and squirrel monkeys.

As the entertainment section is concerned, we were pleasantly surprised by boat rides (there are two of them: Aqua Safari and Black Mamba). Not a lot to write home about regarding the remaining rides, maybe with an exception of the Safari Blitz. Be warned that height limits are on the strict side, so while teenagers are taken care of and smallest children have their mini-attractions, medium children are left out in the cold.

Not very memorable
Aug 2019 • Family
The entrance fee does not justify our experience.
We opted to go in the bus and it was sooooo hot that one just wanted to get off.
The Park was bare and not very well maintained. The only exciting bits were the Lions and the Tiger.
West Africa showed only cattle.
I guess it was disappointed that each area had only a limited Number if animals.
In the walk around Safari, the worst thing was the extremely rude staff who themselves seemed overwhelmed.
Luckily the Rollercoaster made the kids day.
I would recommend the Hannover Zoo over Serengeti any day.

Amazing safari park
Jul 2019 • Couples
This one is just amazing. If you can drive in with your car. The giraffs comes and put there head inside the car.
My wife and I love animals so this was among the best things we ha done.
The animals looks like they are verry well tended.
And when the safari tour is over you have a whole theme park with rides and more animals. We almost took one lemur home with us.
All is included in the entrence fee.
A must for everyone.

Awesome day in the Animal Kingdom!
Jun 2019 • Family
We were here the second time to safari park but the experience here was absolutely amazing! Highly recommended for families. We had a fun filled day at the Serengeti Park. The entry fee is tad higher (40 Euro for Adults and 33 Euro for kids) but worth paying as there is so much to do once inside the park vicinity. We arrived before Opening time at 10am and already there were long queues to take the safari bus. I honestly enjoyed the Jungle safari and the Bus safari. You can also do that in your own car. The advantage with taking your car is you can be upclose and personal with some animals within the park including Tigers and Camels. You get to see a large variety of animals from Asia, Africa and America.

After the safari we went to the amusement park which was for both adults and children. No extra fees to be paid for all what is offered in terms of rides. There have so many rides and activities to offer than we of course didn't get to do the all. All the reason to visit again. I would definitely recommend to everyone, its a must.

Perfekt with kids
Oct 2018 • Family
Spend a day with our kids in Serengeti Park. On the homepage it does not look big or special but when you visit, it is really great. We could easy had used a day or two more...! Beside driving through the park watching the great animals, the park also offered a lot of other activities. Our kids really enjoyed feeding the elephants! In the amusement park there where all kind of nice things to do. Go for a trip with the little train, action with speedboats or jeeps or enjoy a trip in the Ferris wheel. There is a lot of playgrounds (also indoor) and trampolines – really a lot of fun for kids!
We will visit again!

A lot nice things to see for a whole day
Oct 2018 • Family
We spent a nice day in Serengeti park. Animals are lively and it’s possible to see them from a very short distance. Tigers, leopards, etc. Elephants feeding also. You can choose to use your own car or park bus. There is an amusement park after the animals and the price includes all the rides which are offered for all ages. You can go to monkey cages also and hang around among the different apes. The only downside in the park are the restaurants. Even soft drinks and ketchup were unavailable. I guess they already prepared to close the park.

Great attraction for all ages
Aug 2018 • Business
Visited this place numerous times, ideal attraction for all ages. I would suggest driving through the park in your own car, give about 1 hour for this event. You don't need to worry about Baboons trashing your car as their is a moat inbetween you and baboons. Dogs are accepted in the park itself. Their are numerous attractions for small children, RIB boat, Jet boat ( you will get wet regardless where you sit) Florida style Air boat and ATV cross country ride, albeit very short! Ideal for teenagers and grown ups alike.

All in all very good crack, barrier free and very enjoyable, get chance to get close to the smaller monkeys. Very cheeky. But thoroughly enjoyable.
