This was a big highlight of my trip to Arizona. The park is huge and all the animals are given lots of space. Every single animal that I saw had a glossy coat and bright eyes - I think they are truly cared for. Their...More
This is not a classic zoo. These are rescue animals kept in areas with plenty of space to roam. They are well cared for by an energetic group of young people. There are opportunities for interaction with some of the animals
If you’ve ever been to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, this was a similar experience, only it seems a lot more run down but with some awesome close animal encounters without extra fees. Right off the bat, you get on the tour bus and...More
I was gifted with a visit to this park today. Seeing the many Tigers and watching them jump into the water was very nice. However while I was there I did notice a serious lack of cleanliness and maintenance in the animal confinements. It is...More
IF you love animals, this spot has it all.
A quick trip from Sedona proper, this large spread houses, saved, loved, and rehabbed African animals.
Come and stay all day. Lunch items available. Or take a tour from town.
Attractions: animal feeding and pettings. Wild...More
Me and my girlfriend went on a Jeep tour and zipline. The Jeep tour wasn’t exciting because we went at the end of November so the plants and flowers aren’t quite blooming (so that’s not their fault).
Zipline gave us a load of adrenaline! It...More
I was afraid we were going somewhere that had animal in tiny cages. The animals all seemed healthy with enough space to roam. Of coarse they would be best in nature but that cannot always happen. Some of the animals are rescues. We payed extra...More
This is a unique and incredible experience to interact with beautiful exotic animals. They live in a natural habitat. The shows are not only entertaining but educational. A lot of the animals were rescued from various situations. Everyone should visit.
We visited to see if this was like our experiences in South Africa, and it did not disappoint -- though on a much smaller scale. It's facilities are rustic, but the adventure it offers is fun for all. Part game park, part animal rescue, it...More
Will be in the area for 3 days in February. Interested in visiting Prescott, Jerome, Out of Africa Wildlife park, Sedona, doing some easy hikes/walks. Debating staying in Sedona or Cottonwood which seems more centrally located. Interested in some nice restaurants but not gourmet dining. Will Cottonwood be a good place to stay versus more well known Sedona?

I would stay in Sedona for a better selection of restaurants, closer proximity to great hiking and excellent scenery all around you. Where are you coming from and going to after Sedona? Perhaps you can visit Prescott on your way to or from, instead of a day trip.

Trip Report - Sedona & Scottsdale with 4.5 Year Old (5 Replies)
We absolutely LOVED our week in Arizona. Thanks to all of the destination experts for guiding us. I hope this is helpful to others visiting Sedona and Scottsdale especially with young children, as my wife and I visited with our 4.5 year old daughter. Day 1 -Montezuma Castle National Monument - beautiful and inspiring and my daughter became a national parks junior ranger. -Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte around sunset - perfect introduction to Red Rock Country and easy access right from...More

Traveler, Nice trip report! Glad all of your trip planning worked well for you. Although you missed the reflection of Cathedral Rock off the nearby path in Oak Creek at Sunset, Buddha beach does have nice views. For others planning a trip to Sedona, after entering the RR Crossing / Crescent Moon Day Use Park proceed to the first parking lot and walk along the path behind the bathrooms down to the creek (a really short walk).

GCNP/Sedona Trip - Itinerary advice (3 Replies)
Hi - I'm hoping for some advice to fill in some gaps in our itinerary, much of which I built from reading advice and trip reports on this forum (thank you).

Here is our basic itinerary: Day 1 - Fly into PHX [arrive at night - stay at airport hotel] Day 2 - Early breakfast then drive straight to GCNP in time for lunch. [Stay at Yavapi Lodge] Day 3 - Drive from GCNP to Sedona [Leave via East...More

On day 2 see the Visitor Center, ride the red shuttle to western view points and give some time to the rim path at the hotel zone. Most of what you have on your list is not at Sedona. Bearizona is near Williams and could be visited on your way to Grand Canyon National Park. Note, it's a better zoo alternative to Out of Africa. Verde Canyon RR and Blazin M make a good afternoon/evening package. Make it a really long day be adding Out of Africa or Jerome in the morning. Montezuma Castle is...More
