Wildlife Safari is a non-profit AZA accredited zoological park dedicated to conservation, education and research since its inception in 1972. Wildlife Safari is a fun-filled family destination where you can view over 500 animals in their natural habitat roaming freely much as they do in the wild! Visitors to the park drive through a 4.5 mile trek to see animals from Africa, Asia and the America’s. This unique setting offers many opportunities to get up close and personal with animals large and small. The free Safari Village is home to over 100 unique animals, a petting zoo, beautiful gardens, the Gift Shop, Safari Village Café and the White Rhino Event Center.

So fun to see such a range of animals on the safari, and have some of them really close to the car. The camel rides were a fun bonus, as was learning more about the cheetah breeding program.

Never seen so many animals from so close. The safari is not going around seeing animals in cage, but is like driving into their habitat. Most herbivorous animals are on the free next to the roads and you will even see emus or ducks or other birds get very close to your car. There even was one bird which tapped... More

Visited the Wildlife Safari and found it quite enjoyable. They have it laid out very nicely and there was ample time to stop and view animals, take pictures, etc. Gift shop and walk through area were very nice as well. Area is well maintained and animals are very apparently well cared for. Value was definitely there, and surprisingly, even the... More

This is the 6th year I've bought a Family Membership and I will continue to do so. The membership allows me to take visiting family members on the drive through the continents in one or more cars. They have ample opportunities to take pictures and even feed the deer in the Asia section! This is good family fun! The Village... More

We have traveled a fair bit and been to a few Safari parks. This one is truly wonderful though. When you arrive, you walk through a very beautiful Zoo with every type of wild animal. We had purchased tickets online for the drive through the actual safari portion, but when we were inside the zoo for awhile it occured to... More

Typically my 4 and 2 year olds love this place but the lines were absolute insanity this trip. They kept asking if we were done yet by the time we got to the rhinos. The staff was telling us the line of cars was a wait to see the bears. The black bears weren't even in the habitat, or if... More

We LOVED this Safari, got a great deal through Groupon, and spent over an hour driving through and looking at the animals. Splurge on the $5 cup of food when the opportunity arises- feeding the emus will keep your kids laughing all day.

Visited with family along with two younger kids. They absolutely loved this place. We came during an unusually busy time, and it took us two hours to drive through (which I'm told is bout double the time it usually takes). Some of the animals go right up to the cars (like the emus). I probably wouldn't go without Kids, but... More

This is a must do.Provide your children with the experience to see the animals they are learning about close up. A drive through Safari at your own pace, you can do it two times in one day. We stayed at the safari inn hotel not affiliated with the park, clean rooms and right across the street from the safari. We... More
