4.7
#1 of 36 in Wildlife in Ohio
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 our first visit to The Wilds but it won't be the last! This place is awesome! Loved staying in the Yurt and the dinner and breakfast was just fabulous. Plus you get the open air safari when you book a night's stay. Well worth the money! I liked it so much, I purchased a membership!
  • This was well worth the time. The tour in the open bus was fantastic! The animals in many parts came right up to the bus and walked around it. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will be coming g again to do some of the other activities available here...
  • 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!
  • This is a good place for the animals and the kid to run around. I support you because this is my dream to own a zoo one day 🦁🐯🐻🐺
  • 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.
