Overview

Go "On Safari!" and get CLOSER than you ever imagined to over 1,000 exotic birds and animals that roam free in seven large Game Reserves! Your full day of family adventure begins as you set out on a "trek" along 9km of Safari Trail in your own vehicle or aboard a guided, air-conditioned Safari Tour Bus. See a pride of majestic lions, graceful giraffe, a crash of rhino, and many more animals from around the world! After your safari through the Game Reserves, set out on a walking tour of the grounds and enjoy exciting bird and animal presentations featuring Parrot Paradise, Birds of Prey Flying Demonstration and Elephants & Friends. Enjoy the twice daily Elephant Swim, Pets' Corner, "Nature boy" Scenic Railway, "African Queen" Boat Cruise, Discovery Centre and Jungle Playground Areas. Cool off in the newly-expanded Misumu Bay Wet Play interactive water adventure zone where kids can stroll through sprinklers, spouts and stream jets, trek under rain trees and tumble buckets, and interact with gadgets, gizmos and geysers! African Lion Safari is open daily from May 6 to October 9, 2017

Driving through the animal areas is only just a part of what they offer. Kid’s playgrounds, a great little water park, petting zoo, animal shows and more. Driving so close to such amazing animals is hard to beat though. Food and treats are affordable enough.

This is a great family day trip, I suggest taking the tour bus instead of using your own vehicle to travel the different sections of the park. The monkeys will remove parts from your vehicle. While on the visit is fun to watch people who...More

A very good place to visit if you are visiting Toronto or Niagara Falls. If you have young kids, this is a must-see place. It's about an hour drive from Toronto. You can take your own cars inside the safari. You cannot get down or...More

Family oriented place, amazing views and clean environment.I always go there in summer time , is so relaxing, is not cheap , the price increases every year, but, I guess keeping all this animals health, requires a lot of money.

Been there 5 times. The last time was in July. Never gets boring. Always something new to see. Bring a camera...you are going to be up close to all the action.

It's expensive but well worth it. Go early and spend the entire day there and you will never run out of things to do. The Waterpark is super fun for the kids.
