Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
Hand-feed wild animals at Wild Animal Safari, where bison and elk lope alongside your car. A self-guided, drive-through tour winds 5.6 km (3.5 mi) through a recreated Serengeti. The species that call the park home aren't exclusively from the sandy dunes of the Serengeti, however; they hail from environments all over the world. If you don't have a car, consider renting a Zebra Van, or walk through the traditional animal park where lemurs, lizards, and little mammals play in zoo habitats. Vans are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guided bus tours operate seasonally. Visit the attraction's website or call ahead to check on the bus schedule.

  • A unique experience that everyone needs to try. This was fun for our whole family. Rent the vans...they are money well spent. 
  • I was worried going into this that the animals would be super unhappy, but to my surprise, most of them seemed pretty content. The Walk About is free with admission to the actual Safari Ride, and we d...  read more »
  • First let me say the animals seem to be well cared for. It was a lot of fun to feed animals right from your hand. We took our own vehicle on the safari and all we got was a few snotty nose prints. 
  • A great place for the family or out of town guests. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of animals housed in their Safari and petting zoo, though there's vastly more deer. I wish I could take off half a star because their restrooms could use major renovation (e.g. cramped stalls). Staff are friendly. The bus tour took an hour. Bring quarters if you want to feed zoo animals.
  • I give the park two stars because we loved petting the big animals and hand feeding animals you normally only see on T.V. It was a blast. We rented the $20 junk bucket and it was worth it as we got totally slimed and dirty. It was raining though and so we got soaked, but the fun outweighed the wetness and filth. It was totally worth it. THE WALK THROUGH WAS HORRIBLE. THESE ANIMALS NEED TO BE IN A SANCTUARY, NOT IN SMALL CAGES. The Baboons were the worst for me. These poor little guys were depressed and sitting there staring like a jailbird does. Holding the rails and dreaming of freedom. They didnt even have toys to play with. This to me is animal cruelty and should be illegal. It was obvious the Heyena had neuroses as it paced back and forth trying to be involved in something. The Bengal tiger in all its beauty was pacing the same way. These cages need to be quadruple in size at the least. Its messed up. We need to oppose this treatment, and petition or raise money for this. I think they need to be forced to spend money on the animal cages.. Or we need to buy the park from these people and make it a sanctuary. The old school days of jailing other beings for our entertainment is over. If this is the only way someone knows how to make money then they should be very wealthy landowners who know how to make a proper environment . We should try to make this place better for the animals inside.
  • A good little ride through safari where you can rent a vehicle or drive your own. Animals come right up to your vehicle to be fed. The road through the safari is in need of repair, so go slow and careful. No idea how the cafe food was, as a school bus came in right at lunch and the kids basically took over the area instantly. Keep your receipt on you at all times as they check it every time you enter either the safari or the walkabout (petting zoo), although I believe that it is good for the entire day so you can leave and come back.
  • Great environment so much fun!!! My wife and kids including myself loved it!! Very highly recommended place.
  • The walk through should be shut down!! The cages are tiny and there are no enrichment activities for the animals. This place does not need to be supported if the animals can not be well cared for. Animals are social, living beings and shouldn't be shoved in cages for some money. If you want to visit somewhere that the animals come first, go to Noah's Ark. An actual animal sanctuary.
