We went here with my 14 yo and 8 yo kids. We liked the drive through safari. Kids went on slides and petting zoo after. Wall thru area is prob best for small children.

We went for spring break. We love to drive through and see all the animals which takes about 45 mins until you get to the end and get down to visit the park. The animals are well kept and the park is clean. We haven't been able to catch any shows the 2x we've been so I can't comment on... More

Spent a Saturday afternoon at Lion Country Safari and it did not disappoint! The drive through the different areas while listening to the CD is educational as well as a different way to view the animals. They are obviously well cared for and seeing them roam free and not pent up in cages makes the heart feel good. The walking... More

My wife and I had been wanting to check out lion country for some time. We drove over from fort Myers . It is to expensive for what you see as far as we are concerned. The driving part you may or may not see the animals. They can be to far from you to see them. The walk thru... More

The Lion Country Safari is a special treat for animal lovers. Driving through this "cageless zoo" allows you to feel up-close-and-personal to these amazing animals, some who would be seen in a zoo, others who are becoming extinct and/or can only be seen in the wild. Go in the morning or on a cool day so the animals are out... More

Thank you for the great feedback on your visit. Your tips on coming to the park early and following along with the cd are valuable to any guest or group coming to see us. Guests can keep a keen eye out for animals like our Scimitar-horned Oryx, which are extinct in the wild but for a small group that was... More

You get up close and personal with a large selection of animals. Much better than going to a zoo. You see the animals in large numbers in their natural settings. Lots of zebra , deer , giraffe, ostrich , rhino and other animals.

Plan on spending at least 3 hours. The drive through park to see animals in their habitat is just a portion of what they have to offer. A CD is provided with admission that will give you details on the animals in the preserve area. There are picnic tables in the other section allowing you to bring in your own... More

My father in law took us here. It was really nice to see all the different animals that they have. It's just sad 😥that you can only see these animals in a safari now. It's just really sad that some on these animals won't be around much more in the wild.

A great place to visit to see exotic animals that you will not see at your common zoo. Highly recommended. After the drive through portion there is an area to pet/feed animals and also to enjoy a few rides.
