Wild Animal Safari, Pine Mountain

4.2
#9 of 66 in Wildlife in Georgia
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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 had a great time feeding and interacting with the animals! For bags for a family of four is perfect. We didn't get to do the walk through because it was just way too hot for my 2&4 year old. But the hour bus tour was just enough. The bathrooms need to be cleaned thoroughly; they are just dirty. Bring your own snacks and drinks! & enjoy the experience!
  • My family loves this place so much! I've been twice and loved it both times. Very interactive and you WILL NEVER forget the experience! The vehicles are pretty run down but I think it makes the whole experience so much better and more memorable! Animals look very healthy for as many as they have and I fully plan on coming back.
  • Enjoyed seeing, feeding, and touching the animals. I purchased tickets online and our tickets were waiting on us that the ticket counter. There is a cafe but we decided not to eat at the park because it didn't look clean. The women's bathroom was dirty and it had a bad smell. It was nice to walk to the walk through part of the park. We rode the bus through the park and it was a nice experience seeing the animals. They definitely knew we had food.
  • A truly unique and fun experience. Many people below have great points/advice on how best to navigate the place. Here's what I haven't seen suggested recently: make sure to bring trash bags or something disposable to place on top of their vehicle seats as they are disgusting. On rainy days, ponchos will suffice. Bring some towels for slober and sanitary wipes to clean up in addition to washing your hands. I recommend always renting their vehicles, because those animals will stick their whole heads into your vehicle and possibly dent it, if not careful. In terms of feeding the animals, the bison are the most persistent and insistent on the food, so you'll have to throw a bunch of food away from the car to get past them (good strategy for other animals as well). The walk-about zoo is excellent as well. The animals seem to come to life more with cloudier/rainier days. I only gave 4 stars, because the place is pretty dirty and expensive, but if you're prepared and willing to put up with it briefly, then the experience is worth 5 stars 👍
  • This place was a great deal of fun, and a barrel of laughs for myself and my family (including my children). The only thing I would warn against is renting a vehicle and bring towels from home, especially if it has recently rained, as these rentals have no glass in them except the windshield & backglass, also to wipe off any animal spit, etc. Once you get the tickets (buy family pack online), rental, and food its pretty expensive for the amount of time you get driving through. The cages could be bigger and cleaned up for some of the other animals in the walk-about, as I was not impressed with some of them. However, it was educational for my kids and the animals are certainly beautiful!! The bathrooms could use a good old fashioned cleaning and a fresh coat of paint soon!!
