  • I have a long history with park safari. I worked there many years ago and my parents live in the neighborhood. I've always found it to be an enjoyable place. Our last experience wasn't the most positive. We visited in October and we were very disappointed that we had to pay full price only to hear that the safari experience (which is the best reason to visit here) was not open to cars and that we would have to pay 10 dollars extra per person if we wanted to visit in their safari truck... ??? We were told this after we paid of course. On top of this, there were no restaurants open. There was one mediocre food truck available. Do not open if you cannot offer guests a full experience.
  • Amazing! Quite a large park, hard to view everything in one day! Arrive early! Plan about 1 1/2 hours for the drive through safari if you want to take your time and really enjoy each section. We purchased 5 boxes of pellets (they are large pellets) and we ran out right at the end. We had 4 of us feeding the animals though. We brought cucumbers with us, you can bring lettuce, celery or cucumbers to feed them. No carrots are allowed. They are $2.50 a box and if you have some left over from the drive through safari you can feed the deer invade the park or the giraffes!
  • We have visited Parc Safari, with grandchildren, many times over the last 15 years and have always loved the experience. Yesterday's visit was a huge disappointment. The highlight of past visits has always been the drive through the park. This time we saw very few animals and the ponds that the animals were swimming in and drinking from were covered in thick green algae. This will be our last trip.
  • Best part was the driving segment. Feeding the animals was so much fun, even as adults! The animals were cute and respectful; no one ever felt in danger. If you really want to have a good time bring a bunch of lettuce and carrots from the store on the way there. The "promenade" section was a little less exciting but had some memorable moments like the feline tunnel and feeding the giraffe. Their demonstration times didn't coincide with our day and the one we caught was just an info session. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the animals and their collective goal is to eventually release them back into the wild. I'm not a fan of zoos but this I can agree with. Overall we had a great time and it was a perfect way to spend the day away from the city. If you have kids or are big kids at heart, this is the place for you!!
  • The park it self is great, there are a lot of animals, and you will definitely get the chance to feed some of them. But frankly the price is quite expensive, but what makes it worst is the extras that you will have to pay here and there, especially that you have to pay them cash. For example food for the animals is extra and you have to pay cash. Another example tubing in the small river is not included and you need to pay extra, and it is only cash. And if you don't have cash you have to withdraw on a generic ATM where of course you will have to pay an extra fee. Here are some tips. 1. Bring your own bottles of water. 2. Bring cash, you will need it. 3. Come early and spend a day to get your money worth. 4. Bring your own snacks. Enjoy your trip
