Bearizona Drive-Thru Wildlife Park

    What to Expect
    Amidst the Ponderosa pine forests of northern Arizona — and just 60 miles from the Grand Canyon — is the Bearizona Wildlife Park, a natural animal sanctuary with a large variety of North American wildlife.

    The bulk of the park is a 3-mile, self-driving tour. This adventure features the likes of Rocky Mountain goats and elk, Alaskan Dall sheep and tundra wolves, arctic wolves, mule deer, American burros, black bears, bighorn sheep, white and brown bisons and more.

    Then, stroll through winding walkways to get an up-close look at the playful antics of even more animals on exhibit, like beavers, porcupines, otters, bear cubs, bobcats, javelinas, foxes and more. There’s also the Bearizona Barnyard petting zoo, to get up close with the baby animals, and a Mine Shaft Experience, which houses some nocturnal animals and even a few creepy crawly critters.

    Finally, enjoy a Birds of Prey exhibition, which allows visitors to come face to face with hawks, owls, falcons and other raptors. Programs include training demos and free-flight shows, all with a narrative on natural history, conservation and interesting facts — an entertaining and educational experience for all ages.

    I was uncertain about this place, but it was really exceptional. The animals are around and you can see them all as you drive through. Pricy but worth it.

    Since I am an animal lover, this place was perfect. It is a drive through park. People stay in their cars and the animals are loose. The highlight for me was not the bears, but the Arctic wolves that came right up to our car....More
