  • Went in a caravan of 4 cars with 4 passengers in each. All agreed it was a well worthwhile trip. The viewing is well organized; you drive yourself and no pressure. You can stop and pull over to...  more »

  • We've been through several drive-through zoo and this one has been the best one so far. It was such a wonderful experience and our kids loved it. It's always great to see the animals in open space and out in their own habitat. The place is very well kept and it is clean. We were able to stop a few times to take pictures of the animals ( from inside the car of course). Some of them came very close to our car. Be sure to drive slowly and enjoy the view and all the animals. We will definitely be back again. Highly recommend this safari!
  • What a wonderful place to visit! We visited with 4 children aged 8-13. The animal are free to roam and they look well taken care of. From the pictures I included, you wouldn’t believe how close you get to animals! In my life I never thought I’d be so close to them! The water park is awesome and so are the grounds! Highly recommend this wonderful place.
  • Great experience. Overall, there aren't as many animals as I thought there would be. But there's a great variety of animals. They provide you a CD at the gate, so as you move through the exhibits in your car, you can listen to the narration and learn fun facts about the animals. It was a hot and sunny day so I was concerned the animals would all be hiding in the shade, but we got a good up close view of most animals, except the Lions (they were napping). The kids enjoyed the water activities.
  • Lion Country Safari is always a fun place to go with kids and even adults. It’s a unique experience with the animals being so close, which you can’t experience at any zoo. It’s also very educational if you follow along with the CD or online. After the drive-through safari, there are also fun activities (such as a petting zoo, bird aviary with feeding, and giraffe feeding), rides, and water parks. Overall, there is always something to do at Lion Country Safari and it’s never a bore. Definitely recommend visiting with family and friends.
  • This Safari was so much fun to visit! The wildlife walks right past your window half the time. It's so extremely neat and also educational if you listen to the CD they give you for the drive through part. They have a walk through section as well that's worth the time. It's fun and has many different birds and animals to look at. I will definitely come back at some point and recommend this place to everyone!
