It wasn't just an African Safari, it also had small animals as well, like cats, rabbits, Ponies, and puppies, kind of like a petting zoo which was surprising. The one hour tour on the jungle bus and the chance to feed the animals was the...More

This was our first experience in a Safari and we loved it! We took the first bus at 10am and we were given a tray for food to feed the animals. My son fed the bears, lions, camels, elephants, deers, etc through a caged Jungle-bus....More

We had a great day out at the African Safari. We booked the 12.15 safari when we arrived at the park at 10am and found the 2 hours waiting was easily filled exploring the petting zoo and neighboring areas. Kids loved the little spider monkeys!...More

This is a very well organised Safari in a caged bus where we got to feed lions, elephants, giraffes, deers, bears and many more. There is also a dog and cat parlour for children to play and pony rides for the kids. A definite must...More

Great opportunity for the family to experience being up close and personal with wildlife in a setting more appropriate for wild creatures than restrictive zoos. Two admission options give you a choice between driving your personal vehicle through the wildlife zones or riding an open-air...More
