We have taken the grand kids a few times and each time the animals appeared to be in worse shape. Baboons, wolves and dingos in extremely small enclosures. All of these just pace back and forth, never a good sign. The poor baboons are way...More

Fun day driving through the park. Would advise riding their bus instead of your car. Some of the animals stuck their heads through our open windows looking for food. Definitely had to get the cars washed afterwards, but overall a fun day with no issues.

We had so much fun feeding the animals in the drive through, they are definitely not shy! I would suggest to drive one of their cars and not your own. The animals roaming had lots of room to explore! The only thing that I didn’t...More

It depends. If you go on a slow day you can take your time and take almost an hour. If it is busy there will be cars waiting behind you so more like 30 minutes.

Motel 6 - Wild Animal Safari Park (6 Replies)
Is there a Motel 6 or another inexpensive hotel close to the Wild Animal Safari Park? All we need is a place to sleep and shower.

use your favorite travel search site like kayak and use Escondido as the city. Lots of low cost Motel 6 types in Escondido.

Drive through animal parks in Missouri? (1 Replies)
Which drive through animal parks in Missouri are good and bad, or have gotten better or worse? Good or bad, I especially want to hear about the Wild Animal Safari park.

As far as I know the Wild Animal Safari is the only true drive thru zoo we have right now in Missouri. There is Lone Elk park outside of St Louis but that is only elk and buffalo. We've haven't been to Wild Animal Safari in years but I will say that just on the drive by it, it does look better kept and cleaner than it used to.

We just returned home from a short roadtrip from Minnesota, through Iowa, to Ozark, Missouri. The trip was mostly about visiting some family members but we were able to throw in a few attractions for the 9 year old. On the first day in Missouri we went to see some animals because she loves tigers! We drove a short distance to the Wild Animal Safari in Strafford, MO. It was expensive to get in and you also have to pay extra for the food to feed the animals and yes the small zoo like area at...More
