This was our third visit. We take our small grandkids to the park. It is ideal for all ages and the great part is that it never gets old. We took our 3 year old last year and they talked about the park throughout the year, so we took them again this year. It was even better! It was hard for them to pick a favorite, but they spent a lot of time petting goats, feeding the budgies, and laughing at the monkeys. They loved the drive through the park. We have been there in the summer and fall seasons. Both are equally beautiful. This is a 6 hour round trip for us and well worth it!

What a great place to spend the day. We bought our tickets online and arrived shortly after opening so no waiting to get in. The drive is so much fun for adults and children alike. The animals come right to the car hoping for a treat. Buying 2 feed buckets was well worth it since one particular long horn steer used his tongue (because his head woolens fit in the car) to clean out the entire bucket (but he sure left drool behind). The animals are very healthy appearing. There were staff everywhere throughout the park. It is very well maintained. Lots of fun. Don't miss parking and doing the walking portion of the zoo. Well organized, Easy to socially distance in our Covid time. Everything was extremely clean and well maintained. A really fun day for all ages. I would suggest taking snacks or a picnic lunch (the food and drink are a bit pricey) and there are lots of covered pavilions close to the parking lot to enjoy.

This is the second time we've visited the Safari Park. The first time was about 8 years ago and our now 19 and 16 year old were so excited to go back. We've talked about this adventure so many times over the years and this visit did NOT disappoint! It was better than we remembered.

We visited this past Saturday October 17,2020 as a family and has an amazing time! We got there around 930 and there was hardly anyone there and we had plenty of time to stop and feed and enjoy the animals. The walk trough park was great too.. the giraffes came right up to us and were so gentle. We laughed and smiled so much and will definitely be back in the spring. The only thing that made me sad was we really wanted to do the sloth experience as I am obsessed with sloths but the weather was too cool to bring them out. That’s why we must go back in the spring! The best advise I have for anyone going is to ask for extra empty buckets and fill them with small amounts of food from main bucket so that way it’s enough for whole 3 miles.. that’s what we did and it worked out perfectly and oh hold on to your buckets tightly when feeding animals or they will take it.😊

My wife and I always wanted to take our kids to the safari but never seemed to find the right time to go. Finally one Saturday we decided to go and surprise them. We all had a blast feeding and petting the animals. It’s so beautiful watching them. Overall it was the best experience! You really should plan to be there all day as there is so much to do! We planned to come home and carve pumpkins 🎃. That didn’t happen. We just squeezed it into our Sunday Fundays. Anyways this place is the best place to take the kids if you’re looking to surprise them. Definitely recommend!
