  • We were there during the high season, what but not discourage us. Waiting times were OK (in others it waits much longer parks), the facilities are clean and well kept. We did a bus Safari, because it then but too risky was our US car bus driver/Ranger Rolf has always taken care of good mood and totally great accompanied by the terrain. The animals have very much space, you can not just say at other parks. Because we have taken another trip, are we stayed overnight and slept in a Masai Mara Lodge, which is highly recommended. The lodge is built in an African style and furnished, what has maintain the feeling of Safari. The lodges are built around a small animal park and you can to the anytime directly from the terrace on giraffes and ostriches look beautiful! All-in-one is the Park and accommodation recommended!

  • We visited recently the Serengetipark in Hodenhagen, here our impressions: attention: only the Safari here is attention, the amusement park has not met due to lack of interest! Positive:--> the fact that you so can come close big cats, wildebeest, buffalos, and much more with your own car, is a snowy adventure--> Safari route is divided into thematic areas really nice and you can stay there actually everywhere to others - who have seemingly more stress - let pass and to photograph (However, a telephoto lens is required, otherwise it makes only limited sense) is huge--> the system and you have the feeling , that the animals have actually enough space (of course, any Zoo or animal park is ultimately a compromise solution) negative:--> I know, whether holiday or Sunday, when driving the cars in a convoy through the Park, fine-dust pollution in particular for animals not far from good and evil is in the, when hundreds verb racers in close field I can not imagine , that it is healthy for the animals--> as always when people come together, stands or falls a system with the attitude of the people and we were able to observe the following: 1) Although only the Safari bus must go right and one right may, pass only to queue up then left again, so much stress had a few people that were at times both tracks and was therefore hidden point of view on the right side , just stupid (especially why should I by hounding me there?) 2) In the "elephant Valley" some people have fed the animals any crap (ice cream cones, etc.). (And no, it should be not necessary that monitoring anyone, even the absolute average person should be smart enough to understand that elephants do not necessarily Snickers and ice should eat 3) is without the price of more than 30 euros per person and in the morning also don't always 4, keep in mind the waiting time at check-in upon arrival) who does not want to go through with your own car , the Safari bus must not even extra pay for use. For me, that was anyway not an option because the dirty Windows of the bus for every hobby photographer are unacceptable, also was the experience with your own car in the foreground. CONCLUSION and tips: Actually a great thing, but probably for the animals not just health-promoting, with waiting times at certain times long. We recommend a journey only from 14:30, since they no longer wait and you need anyway not more than 3.5 hours to the Safari more comfortable to leave also for many photo stops. The amusement park is here, of course not be

  • The full delight of children and adults. A convenient, better buy tickets online in advance (to print when asked). Drive better through the outermost right lane, then there will be a queue entry. On the way to buy carrots, her love giraffes, elephants and many others) looking straight to the Salon machines ...

  • The park itself is HUGE compared to others in Europe and the United States. I'm from the U.S and will NEVER see a wildlife park this diverse and cared for. Each animal has a great amount of space and a natural environment. Lions, cheetahs, tigers, camels, rhinos, elephants, flamingos, giraffes are all here. They have petting sessions for goats and elephants. I fell in love with lions, giraffes, and goats here! The hotels are €70 euro a night. Medium sized room and the hot water goes out after 10 minutes because it's so many people. The food is great. Breakfast is free. The park itself is what I came for and was not disappointed.
  • I am proud to say, that the Lodges were incredible good. Very good service. I slept very good in them.
  • Very basic. You need to like camping to really enjoy your stay.
  • Really cool place..only bus tour I find too much warm in the summer
  • Really cool place, drive through experience is awesome
