  • On a break from Kalahari water park , we decided to take a quick trip to Port Clinton Ohio to see Lake Erie. However after seeing the African safari billboard, we just had to stop and check it out. So...  read more »
  • The drive-thru portion is great for getting up-close views of all sorts of animals: bison, elk, alpaca, deer, etc. you can drive-thru and feed them (food that you purchase along with your tickets) . T...  read more »
  • I have went three times in the past 15 years and always have fun. Was cool out so some animals not out, but still fun. 
  • Neat experience, you can feed the animals from a cup (provided) in your car and all of the wildlife animals are extremely friendly. Do not open your car door. The walking part of the wildlife exhibits had all of the animals in cages, except for a few exhibits, and it was not that great. The restrooms were less than desirable to use and that was the only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Search online for discount tickets. Would go back again. They do give you a hang from the mirror admission card in addition to a receipt that has a massive discount on the back of the card also.
  • I was glad I had a free coupon. It was unique. Don't take a nice car it could get damaged and you will have to run it through the car wash twice. Better to take a big Beat up vehicle. Some of the animals are huge. Overall the kids had fun
  • My husband and I took our 3 young kids today. We drove an hour to get there. It was GREAT! The kids absolutely loved feeding the animals from the car. As an adult my husband and I even enjoyed the animals sticking their head in our windows lol We bought a sweet deals certificate, so we saved alot. When we got there we were offered a cheap membership, paid $21 for a family! Will definitely visit a lot. Worth the money and drive.
  • Tons of fun for the kids! The llamas, reindeer, antelopes and bison are very calm, free-roaming, and know to come to the cars for the carrots. The giraffes and the zebras are behind the fence. The pig races are fun (Go, O.J. Oink!), the Gallapagos Turtle impressive and the mini zoo on the grounds well kept and engaging.
  • I had never been to an "African Safari" park before, so I had high hopes. Unfortunately this place wasn't worth the time, drive, or money. We arrived at the front gate and there were 4 cars ahead of us. We sat for about half an hour waiting for those 4 cars to simply pay at the booth while a very long line of cars formed behind us (they closed one of the two lanes after the first car sat there for 15 minutes). The actual drive through the safari part was okay, although they charge $8 for a bag of carrots and a cup of feed that lasts about 1/10 of the way through the safari drive....and the workers are sitting around the lot with binoculars, so don't bother trying to sneak in your own carrots (and be prepared for pushy animals that will chew your car if you aren't handing out enough food). After the drive we watched the pig liked that, but it was short and nothing special. Then we went to feed the kangaroos - but they want $5 per person to stand there and feed kangaroos with a long ladle, through a fence. We continued on our way and went for camel rides. The first "ride" is free, additional times are $5. They walk the camel around in a very small circle, less than 5 minutes long. Then we went to what I guess you can call an animal show....they had a tarantula, a turtle, and a snake, and that's it. You could hold the snake and get your picture taken with it - for another $5. My favorite part, though, was when we went to the gift shop and my niece paid with a 20 but got change for a 10. When we complained, the girl gave us a hard time at first and refused to call her manager or count out her register. Eventually she gave the money back, but then she whispered to her coworker that I was trying to rip her off and now her register would be I once again asked for the manager to come count her register but she just kept saying "I can't do that." We left after that........I can guarantee I will never be going back.
