Wild Animal Safari, Pine Mountain

4.3
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Pine Mountain
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.

  • We took our granddaughter on our first safari this weekend. There was so much laughter and squealing. The animals were very well fed and it was fun to get so close to them.  more »
  • What a great time!!! It is a must stop!!! We drove our own car but next will probaby get one of theirs as the animals did jump on our car. Get lots of food to the animals. The kids laughed and laughed...  more »
  • Not really "wild" animals, thank goodness, but tons of them and they are hungry! Was a blast to drive through and see & feed them all. Really enjoyed the experience.  more »

  • This place is amazing, we loved it!!!!! Great for kids of all ages and no kids at all. My husband and I loved it so much we came back a few years later with our daughter, she 13 and loved it. The park has grown a lot since the last time we were there. We have now experienced the rental van, the bus, and driving through with our own car ( wouldn't always recommend if you have a nice car, these are wild animals) but feeding the giraffe out of our sunroof was the most amazing experience. We love this place and will definitely come back for a third time!!!
  • Better than I expected. Get there early, the animals are hungry and more active at that time of day. We drove through twice, once around 11:00 and the animals were waiting for the cars to come by and feed them. When we went again after lunch, they were taking naps in the shade and not very active. You have the option to drive through in your own car (part of base price), take a bus tour (part of base price), or you can rent one of their cars or vans (extra charge, one hour rental). You can drive through as many times as you like on the bus or in your own car. Also included in the base price is a walk through "zoo" section. They also have a small cafe/restaurant that is very reasonably priced.
  • Pretty decent experience especially for a family. There are van and other vehicle rentals (though I imagine getting a larger group together and taking a bus would be the most cost effective method here). The restrooms have a bit of a "state park" feel (as in do not feel or look clean). The food is worth buying despite its cost especially if you have kids who are interested in feeding the animals. After your safari, do not forget to check out the zoo as there are animals within that you could not see on the safari (and sadly who require separate food, but it is located in front of their cages).
  • One of my favorite places and things to do. This was our 2nd visit. This is a fun place to go with or without kids. The safari park you drive or ride through and feed all the animals. They come up to your car and hold their mouths open and you put the feed you purchase from the park in. Its lots of fun and you might get slobbered on a bit. Excellent walk through petting zoo too. So awesome a must if you're anywhere near Pine Mountain.
  • The animals are not cared far... they seemed hungry, not watered. They were chasing the nus for food. Sad if you asked me. The caged animals were pacing and seemed annoyed. I do not recommend. Very expensive. Cost me and husband and two grandchildren over 100.
