Wildlife Safari is a non-profit AZA accredited zoological park dedicated to conservation, education and research since its inception in 1972. Wildlife Safari is a fun-filled family destination where you can view over 500 animals in their natural habitat roaming freely much as they do in the wild! Visitors to the park drive through a 4.5 mile trek to see animals from Africa, Asia and the America’s. This unique setting offers many opportunities to get up close and personal with animals large and small. The free Safari Village is home to over 100 unique animals, a petting zoo, beautiful gardens, the Gift Shop, Safari Village Café and the White Rhino Event Center.

For the best views go first thing in the morning, when animals are stirring and stretching their legs, or later in the afternoon when animals are loitering about because it's feeding time! If your schedule only allows you to come midday, look for animals relaxing under the shade, laying down in the grasses, or leaning against fences. Think: If you... More

If you are near Winston Oregon, I highly recommend you take a leisurely drive through Wildlife Safari. It is highly improbably that African and Asian animals can live outside in Southern Oregon but they do. If you take your time, you can see many of the animals in a very personal way. This was our second visit. We got to... More

Spent 3 days here enjoying the animals. Love the drive through area, every time is different. And bonus this year you pay once and can go through twice. Go morning and late afternoon, different animals are out. The village is always fun! We love the animals and the show in the safari doom. Warning the train is good for children... More

This place was amazing. The animals are everywhere and the assortment is fantastic. The property is huge so the animals truly look like they are in their natural habitat and free to roam. It's about 2 hours to drive through and they will let you do a second drive if you missed any animals on the first. Highly recommend for... More

We arrived at the "safari" later in the afternoon in one of the worse days ... we had a heat wave. The animals were all hiding except for a few, but the kids weren't disappointed at all. We saw the zebras and hippos which we didn't see on our previous visit. Other than the heat being unbearable, we enjoyed our... More

It was 96 degrees on the day of our visit. We thought the animals would all be hiding in the shade and that we will not get to see much; however we were not disappointed. Many of the animals, including the white rhino (which roams freely on the grounds), were out enjoying the sun. The kids enjoyed feeding the animals... More

We saw; zebra's, elephants, lions, cheetah, brown bears, bisons (with young ones), hippo, elk, ibex-type, emu, lama's, ostrich, giraffes, rhino, king-fisher bird, and more (but what names ?), but no tiger (absent or hiding ?). The more potentially dangerous animals are kept within limited and adequately fenced areas, sometimes with guard towers (yes, like a little prison). No information is... More

Took our grandsons, ages 4 and 6 to see the animals. We were very pleased and this was so exciting for kids to see the animals in this type of setting. When you get your tickets you get a choice of drive through and one with a feeding cup. The feeding cup provides a paper cup with food pellets for... More

We were driving from Ca to Salem. It was a perfect stop to break up the drive. We arrived close to 5pm and was able to see a lot of animals out eating. There were a lot of birds walking around. Some trying to get in the car which was funny. We loved driving from one section to another. You... More

The animals were plenty active that the kids enjoyed watching them... Perhaps to "grandpa's" dismay a few of us were more impressed with the pokestops and pokemon we were catching... But overall it was a super fun trip and we're glad the youngsters got to see some of these beautiful animals.
