4.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
An animal sanctuary where local species roam free, Bearizona Wildlife Park provides wild encounters with bears, wolves, and birds of prey. You'll find access to the surrounding forest via a well-maintained gravel road. Animals may run out into the road, so drive slowly and keep your windows closed. Walkers can stroll through Fort Bearizona to view baby animals before they are released into the open park. Consider taking in a show near the fort. Trained birds of prey exhibit their wingspan and hunting capability, or you can view an otter feeding. Join the Wild Ride VIP Bus Tour for a guided journey behind the scenes and close-up introduction to animals. The VIP tours are available on a first come, first served basis.

  • The animals seemed well taken care of and the upgrades that they are doing at the park are going to make it first rate. The Jaguar pen was well built and spacious and offered excellent viewing of the ...  read more »
  • By chance we came across the park on the way. You can go there by car driving around between the bears, bison, wolfven etc. Very cool experience! It is very neat and clean.

  • Found this as we left the south rim of the Grand Canyon visit. Super place, well thought out, and the free-flight raptor show is not to be missed. Ran into one of their executives, Tony, who was hands-on in a building project. Super guy. The upcoming panther exhibit is going to be awesome. I liked the drive thru park, but honestly could have just spent hours watching the bear cubs playing around. We had a large family and I still found the price of admission worth it.
  • It was a great experience! At the time that we went there was some construction so that took away from the experience a bit but overall it was amazing. The food was the cost and quality of any theme park. The difference was that they allow you to take your food from outside. The first 3 miles are driving through the predators and seeing the black bears and wolves eating and playing. The walking area is like a zoo with Arizonan animals to see in habitats you can find in the state. There were lots of exhibits at different times throughout the day that taught about the wildlife. I recommend it to anyone visiting especially with kids.
  • A great side trip from Williams,AZ. Close to town yet out in the forest. Easy walking trails, plus narrated bus tour and/or drive through the preserve with your own vehicle. Watch out for the bears! They walk alongside your car, minding their own business. The raptor show was educational, informative, as well as entertaining. The narrator did a fabulous job. A great place to go for children or adults.
  • Thought the $20 admission price was a little hefty at first, but this place was amazing! Perfect for people of all ages and interests! The drive through safari had a nice route and you got very close to the animals, even though they were mostly all asleep when we got there. The free flight raptor show was included with admission and was phenomenal. The smaller creature habitats were adorable and you even get to pet and brush goats! Throughout the day they have different events going on so I would look it up first so you get an idea of what time you want to be there. Awesome complement to our Grand Canyon trip!
  • My family thought this was terrific. The souvenirs were great and actually a few were half price. It is so close to the koa campgrounds outside Williams. It was worth the money. We spent at least 4 hours in it.
