  • I have lived in Oregon for 4 years, but this is my first visit here. I loved the concept of keeping the people in small places (like cars) and the wildlife in the open. I had visited open parks...

  • One of the coolest things we did on our trip! Amazing animals. All close and easy to see. Not many places to see hippos and they were so cool. Many amazing animals to see. Well worth the stop...

  • We were able to see almost all the animals up close. Very amazing. The enclosures were spacious and provided enrichment for the animals. They all seemed happy and relaxed.

  • The Wildlife Safari is located in Winston, Oregon. You can pay to go through the drive through to see bears, bison, elephants, giraffes, and many other animals, but if you plan to go through the drive through a couple more times it is best to buy a membership for $120 annually. You can go through the drive through as many times as you would like the entire year. You can add a person onto the membership, so you could also just go in on a membership with a family member or a friend. You can walk through and look at many other animals for free, with donations kindly accepted. There is a small playground for children, a cafeteria/ restaurant, many different species of animals to look at as well as a petting zoo area.
  • Awesome place to go with family and friends! Lots of animals to see and even feed a few! After the nice relaxing drive around you can even park and see more animals! Staff was very friendly! Some of the staff even stayed next to the animals and said a few facts and were always making sure you enjoyed it! Definitely recommend going to this place!
  • Lovely place to visit with kids to see the animals, my 6 years old kid enjoyed the whole safari a lot seeing the animals roaming around in around our car and in the designated areas. They have almost all the animals from reptiles, mammals, domestic and wild animals. You can leisurely drive around the place, it can take up to 2 hours to go through the round, in the entrance you can also walk through the trials to see few reptiles, they have train ride for kids, café is available, lots of parking spaces available. Go in the morning to avoid crowds and spend more time.
  • Drove through with family, it was a lot of fun. You must stay in your vehicle at all times. We bought some food in cups to feed the animals through our windows. We had enough time pause in our car and take pictures along the way. There's souvenirs available at the end, highly recommend as a family stop!
  • 10/10, 5-Stars, Two enthusiastic thumbs up 👍🏼👍🏼 If you have even a couple minutes to stop in...do it! Not only is it one of the coolest experiences to drive through, but the conservation work this place does is incredibly important. Talking to the park employees and seeing the animal friendly enclosures...it's clear to see that this organization truly cares about their animal friends. There's also the opportunity to ride a camel and feed goats, deer, and Emu's all from the palm of your hand. As if that wasn't enough, the park cafe has some of the best hot wings and beer you could ask for. Crunchy wings with fall-off-the-bone meat. Hot sauce in small containers to add as you see fit. And beer that was cool, refreshing, AND able to be carried around the park in paper cups while you watch the lemurs play.
