We were staying at the KOA connected to Lion Country Safari. You could hear the lions roaring in the morning & evening. The feeding of the animals was done right by the road, so you got very close to them. They were clean & healthy looking. At the walking part, it was so clean & fun. Feeding the giraffes was... More

Driving through the reserve in the comfort of your own car allows you a close-up view of the animals in a natural setting. Wonderful variety of animals. Recorded tour information provided.

I still have my toy lion from when I was a kid, so it was great to bring my 3 young sons here. They were bringing food to the gazelles and water buffalo when we were driving thru, so we had quite a show with gazelles leaping just in front of our car. The water park and rides were a... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your visit, and while it is fun to see all of our animals, it is only appropriate to feed them in the designated feeding areas inside Safari World with food provided by Lion Country Safari. This is because of dietary restrictions, safety for our... More

We went with my in-laws and took our 17- and 20-year old daughters -- We all LOVED it! We spent between 1 and 1 1/2 hours on the "Safari" drive. It was incredible. The animals are fed right on the side of the road, so they are really close. You pull to the side to spend your time watching, so... More

We went for a family camping 4 day weekend to celebrate a birthday of a relative. We had 3 campsites together and the facilities were fantastic. From the swimming pool to the showers. The pool is heated and the water temperature was 87 degrees. Beautiful. The campgrounds are very well kept and plenty big enough for an 18X24 tent, plus... More

It's a waste your time coming to this "attraction" You drive slowly through a desolate landscape and see some African horned animals that you could simply see in a zoo for a 1/4 of the cost. The Lions were the biggest letdown, you drive by a cage and see a few lions. The Rhino's were impressive and about the only... More

We ordered online to save some money. Used a phone for showing we paid, seamless. Car tour was excellent, many animals to see. Saved us the cost of a trip to Africa. Walking tour and kids activities were also great., especially feeding the giraffes. Took about four hours and did not do everything.
