Wildlife Area Educational Site
Visit rare and endangered animals in a natural, outdoor setting at The Wilds. The safari park and conservation center houses animals from around the world like rhinos, giraffes, bison, camels, cheetahs, and other uncommon creatures. The park aims to promote conservation through education and personal experiences with the animals. The nearly 4,000 hectare (10,000 acre) park includes a birding station, and butterfly habitat, and a 10 hectare (27 acre) Carnivore Conservation Center. Over 24 km (15 mi) of mountain biking and hiking trails wind through the park, and it contains more than 150 lakes. Take the basic safari tour to learn about the endangered animals from a knowledgeable guide, or try a tour with one of the park's staff members who will take you through their day-to-day work with the animals.

  • This was my first open air safari ride experience. The staff were very friendly and seemed to enjoy what they do. Our guide was extremely informative and upbeat. This was very refreshing seeing animals in an environment more natural as compared to a typical zoo setting. We are glad we visited The Wilds!
  • Loved our tour at the Wilds. It started out cold and rainy but that didn't take away from a great time. Saw lots of animals. Loved the setting. Hope to go back in the future and try one of the more in-depth tours.
  • Wow! What an experience! Sleeping in a yurt, waking to the sounds of wildlife, great pics from the Open Air Safari Tour, and hand feeding endangered animals on the Wildside Tour! One of our best trips ever!
  • Amazing place. Everyone who works here is friendly and knowledgeable. The Open Air Safari ride was awesome. Dinner at Nomad ridge was delicious.
  • I love this place!! The entire time I was there it was a pleasant experience. The tour was outstanding and it was a great place to see and learn about animals.
