One of the female moose are the weather stripping on the drivers side of my car. I tried to stop her but she was too strong and determined. A buffalo also took its head and lifted up my right front tire. My truck weighs 5,670 lbs so that's pretty impressive. The employees seem to be annoyed with patrons who feed... More

This place was an OK thing to do in Port Clinton. The drive thru park was a nightmare. There are so many alpacas and deer surrounding all the cars, licking on the car, freaked me out.

This is the first time I ever drove my car by a bunch of animals. You would buy these cups of grain(food) plus carrots to feed the animals, once your in the gate. You would open your window, stick the cup out, and the different animals would eat the food. There were alot of deerlike animals, buffalo, and lumas. The... More

This place is amazing! Unfortunately this was one of our first Drive thru safaris... so many of the others we visited since have been a disappointment. They are friendly, and the animals are hilarious. Plan to wash the car when it's over, and try to come in a vehicle where all the windows open, unlike a van. Bring your video... More

While we were excited about going to see this, it was more expensive than it was worth. BE SURE TO LOOK FOR COUPONS BEFORE GOING - THERE ARE A LOT AROUND! The first few minutes of the drive thru were really neat because of the llamas and deer (and occasional elk and bison) coming up to your car for food,... More

If you're feeling down and need to cheer up, nothing works better than going on an African Safari in Port Clinton. The animals are hilarious to interact with and if they don't have you laughing by the end of the "trip" then there's something seriously wrong with you. You can't go through the safari without the amazement of being up... More

What a fun place. I highly suggest getting coupons via groupon- saves you a lot of money. We didn't know what to expect, but this was so much fun. Be warned that some of the animals jump up on your car doors and can leave scratches and the buffalo will stick his head in your car- leaving a mess of... More
