Totally worth it!

This place is like a combination of zoo+safari park+water park. Just so much to offer. And all the rides etc all included in the ticket. Our son is 3 yo and can’t do the water park. I can imagine older kids will have a blast just from that. I wish we live closer to have an annual membership

Your positive feedback is much appreciated! We're glad you enjoyed each aspect of your visit, from the safari drive-through to the attractions in our walk-through adventure park. Guests that visit three times in a year save money on admissions by purchasing an Annual Pass, so it is still a great option for those that travel from further away! Thanks again for the awesome review.

Fun for adults and kids

This place was so cool! We thought it was a little expensive, but once going into the safari, we realized it was absolutely worth it! Huge areas for the animals to roam around, tons of enrichment, and how many places can you be 5ft away from a black rhino? Really amazing experience. The audio guide wasn't that great, but everything else was 5 stars. They have a fun place to stop after the drive through the safari with a restaurant, gift shop, can feed giraffes, and a fun little boat ride to see some of the primates on islands in the pond. And you can even buy a painting by a giraffe!

Safari

Stayed in KOA right next door and heard lions and other animals throughout our stay. Purchased tickets from Campground, which was so easy. Our safari was so much fun. Arrived at 9:30 and animals were all out roaming, eating and playing! We were there when they first let the lions out too, which was cool. We even had a special greeting from an ostrich family! After our safari we entered the park for some more fun! Even went into the splash pad to cool down! 10 out of 10 in my book!! Check it out!

Fun & Interesting!
Jun 2021 • Family
Beautiful park!! It was fun driving thru, while getting a close look at all the wild animals. You're able to drive at you're own pace, get a long look at, and take pictures of all the different species. After the drive thru you get to visit their W¹alk Thru park, of smaller animals. However we only got to visit the gift shop and get something to eat at their restaurant. It started to rain heavily so we left the park. We highly recommend it.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us after your recent visit! Rainy days can dampen the spirit, but they are actually some of the best days to see the animals being active. Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again soon!

Great way to spend the afternoon!!
Sep 2021
Beautiful park; It was far better than I remembered about 13 years ago

The Safari path is paved and well maintained; you see an extraordinary amount of wildlife.
Animals are readily visible and you can even see feeding of some of the animals such as chimpanzee, all from the comfort and safety of your car!

The walk thru trail is also very lush; a really nice way to spend the afternoon!
I would recommend and I would visit again!

Nature at its best
Jul 2021 • Couples
This is a super fun experience and a chance to ride through an animal habitat and see a decent variety of land animals up close. Definitely an awesome visit with kids, but perfect for all who have a sweet spot for the beauty and majesty of each of G-d’s creatures.

Thank you so much for visiting and writing up this lovely review! Guests of Lion Country Safari get to enjoy the sight of large herds of animals in natural settings, offering the chance to see behaviors that might not be seen in a traditional zoo. We appreciate you visiting and sharing your feedback, and we hope to see you again in the future!

This place was amazing! So many awesome animals - and so close! The water slides were a fun bonus. It was well worth the admission. Awesome place!! We could have spent way longer than just the afternoon.

A must see in South Florida
Jun 2021
This place was fantastic. After reading the mixed reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. But my brother had been there before and said it was well worth the time. He was right. I was with my 88 year old Mom, so being able to drive rather than walk was a real plus. The narration was easily broadcast on our rental car radio. It was informative and well timed to the drive. The woman at the gate told us to estimate an hour - we were in the gates for two and a half hours and would have like to stay longer! We just finally had to move on to our next destination. The animals are obviously well cared for. The habitat is well maintained. We saw so many wonderful animals right next to the car. My mother and I have both been on safari in Africa we both agreed that this experience was nearly as exciting. We did not stop in the gift shop or the other attractions as we had spent so much time in the drive park, so I cannot speak to those.

Don’t waste your money at Lion Country Safari
Jun 2021 • Family
The drive thru was the most interesting because it was overcast, first thing in the morning, and many animals(mostly ostrich) were moving around. The adventure park was a waste of time. The only ride open around 11 am was the Dumbo ride. The putt putt course had most greens torn and many exhibits were empty. It definitely was not worth the $100+ for admission.

Your honest feedback is much appreciated. Overcast days are some of the best days to see the animals being active, and the cooler temperatures of the morning also encourage more activity. All of our mechanical rides are scheduled to open each morning at 10:00 am, and animals are in their habitats by that time as well. Our ticket prices are currently lower than they were before our temporary closure in March 2020, and parking fees are not being charged at this time. If you have any additional information, such as the date that you were here, or questions, we are happy to communicate via email at guestservices@lioncountrysafari.com.
