We stopped here on our way to Lago Maggiore from Milan. The safari park has lots of animals and its safe because there are a good number of guards. The park where children can play is good too, offering a variety of rides and games. The shows are entertaining and the performers are good, especially the parrot and magician shows.

What a surprise !
A wonderful place to bring your children if you are traveling in the area.
The park is very big. Visitors can drive through the safari area on their own car or they can choose to ride the small train to see the animals. Lions, tigers, cheetah, rhinos, hippos, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, pelicans and many more will walk a few steps from you. It is an amazing experience. We decided to ride the train to be more environmentally friendly but we realized that the train never stops for photos while cars can. We were not able to take many nice photos from the train because the glass is quite tick and scratched so the photos came out faded. Also the train has a very smelly exhaust . We were seated right in the front wagon and it was pretty strong. The tour explanation during the ride was in Italian only and we couldn't understand anything. Also, the shows were also announced in English but the birds of pray one, which is the only one we watched was all in Italian. Other than this, everything was up to our full satisfaction. We really enjoyed our day, we found the personnel friendly and attentive, the food good and fairly priced and the activities plentiful. In addition to the drive through safari area there is a walk through area with farm animals ( including the giant American bison ), an aquarium, a reptile center, a park with dinosaurs reproductions, picnic areas, restaurants and gift shops, a 6d's movie center and an amusement park with plenty of free rides ( the most popular seemed to be the logs on water ), a go- kart track, a video game arcade, a horse riding for children and much more.
There were shows to attend throughout the day starting at 1 pm. Shows with parrots, with birds of pray and circus like entertainment.
The entrance price as of July 2013 was 17 Euros for adults and 12 for children. The train ride through the park was 2 extra Euros. We felt that the price was absolutely fair for the amount of things to see and to do and the entertainment provided. Plan a full day to visit the whole park. This place is really worth a visit.

We took a drive with our relatives toward Lake Maggiore and ended up at the Safari Park. I love to photograph wildlife but wasn't sure what to expect from a safari in Northern Italy. I was pleasantly surprised! I actually enjoyed this safari ride better than the safari tour at Animal Kingdom at Disney.

Its a combination of an amusement park and a zoo, both are small, not that many attractions nor animals, but we enjoyed it.
Some attractions inside the park are not free.

Lots of animals to see for kids - young and old! There are also shows: parrot show, eagle show, etc.,
There is a part where you can go with the car and see lions, tigers, giraffes, elephants, etc. And then there is a part where you can look at animals by foot (reptiles, fish, birds, etc.). A great way to spend the day with your kids and friends!
