We were surprised how much we enjoyed our stop at Wildlife Safari. I expected a kitschy tourist trap; instead I was pleased to discover they are actually part of the zoo and aquarium association and actively are working to protect and preserve cheetahs. It was a really positive experience watching animals in a more free environment than a typical zoo.... More

I had most of a day to kill before attending a wedding in the evening, so my mom and I decided to take in the Wildlife Safari. This is a drive through safari that allows you to get fairly close to some absolutely breathtaking animals. From the moment we entered the park and met Annie at the start of the... More

Arrived at the park at 10:30 and there was a cheetah out with trainers on the front lawn so my wife went for a look. It was pretty spiracular to find out how fast these cars are they have a speed of 0 to 60 in under 3.0 seconds and a top speed of around 74 mph. Wow! It was... More

Our experience exceeded our expectations. Stop at Dutch Brothers coffee shop in Roseburg for discount coupons for Wildlife Safari. We arrived at feeding time and the weather was cool, about 70 degrees; perfect. Animals were literally roaming the roads. With a hand stamp, you can drive around a second time, which we did in the afternoon. Totally different animals were... More

My family loved being able to see animals up close and personal that we had never seen before. Watching them in the wild not in cages or pens for the most part is different and gives you a new view of how these animals live. You need to go through slowly and really look as you go through to see... More

Probably the most memorable experience on this trip was the emus standing in the middle of the road and approaching your vehicle. The seemed to be pecking at our mirror (perhaps, for the dead bugs?) and then our window. Maybe they were just seeing if we had any leftover deer feed on us. Either way, it was funny and made...

This was a lot of fun to drive through. We saw so many animals, from Bears, Lions, Cheetah, Tigers, Flamingo, giraffes, and so much more. You drive through in your car. You can not take your pets into the park, but they have free kennels. Nice gift shop and picnic area. It was really fun and very interesting.

The drive through is an awesome experience. We purchase the feed for the birds. Having an Emu eat from your hand is amazing, along with the deer. Having buffalo or Elk block the road is memorable. What I wish was sometimes different is the distance of some of the animals, making it difficult to view them. Also, if really busy,... More

My family absolutely loved visiting the Wildlife safari. Feeding the animals was a real treat! I found it was better than going to an actual zoo. We were able to see all the different animals. It was nice to see most of them not caged up. The staff was very friendly and very helpful! We will be back!

This park. It is a nice slow trip through the park which is clean & well maintained. Expensive but we think worth it!
