  • It is too usual and there is no device as the body which went to Achikochi because it is urged by the child. The most boring thing is that the days i went to the animal area may be because it was hot and bad, but i'm just sleeping all the animals. The lion bus of Tama Zoo which I went to the other day was doing meat and i could see the animal-likeness considerably. Even considering the location of Nasu, i thought it was a little wider course. I think that it was not an explanation if it was not a bus, and it was not blocked further. Having felt that it was interesting for me is the first time even if it is trained very well by the elephant which does not turn by the car, it is accustomed to the person, the nose is extended, food is taken dexterously, the hole of the elephant's nose is touched so much, and it is food ed in any place. I can't experience that feeling all over.

  • It's not like a zoo looking at animals from a distance. I handed the elephant and the giraffe a guy. Adults and children who like animals can enjoy it, but if you don't like animals, it's too close and scary. If you're driving around in your own car, you'll want to rent a car that is likely to get hurt. It's expensive but interesting, so it's a good idea to buy food and get into a rental car.

  • I went there for the first time. We went by bus in the park. You can feed giraffes, elephants, deer, etc. I also enjoyed the light-hearted explanation of the bus driver and guide. In addition, there was a white lion which was unusual, too and it was studying.

  • A great place to get up close, and really see the animals. Entry was a little expensive, 2 adults plus bus fee was 7800 yen. They sell animal biscuits for another 1000 yen. You can take your own car, chartered bus, or special bus through the park. It was great to see all the animals in such a short distance. We took the guided bus, which was the perfect speed to enjoy looking at, and feeding all of the animals. The bus driver aso gives information about the different animals. The restaurant was also really good, but amazingly crowded. Even going for lunch during off hours, there was over an hour wait. There's a small petting zoo with rabbits, goats, sheep, and llamas. Overall, it's well worth the cost to go at least once.
  • When I visited here first, I did not expect something because I thought it existed for kids. However, As I was experiencing all the course of Safari I felt that it was changed. You can drive safari car by yourselves and meet lots of animals there. You have to know the feed which you can buy is not enough for all animals. If you can ask the feed some staffs in every spots and entrance, you can buy more. Alphaka is so smart that it block your car to eat some feed. Some deers which have cornu are little bit more dangerous than lions and tigers because they pull down side mirrors of the car. Anyway you can experience real safari world and feel excited. Visit there and experience there. Thanks.
  • It was super fun driving through the park. A lot of animals were walking besides our car, we got to feed them too.
  • Night safari is soo nice
  • Nice place
