There aren't too many self drive safari parks in the USA so that by itself makes the experience amazing. The park is large and the drive is fun for all ages. There are many animals on show in their natural habitats. There is also animal viewing in the walking area along with some games and rides for kids. This is... More

We expected more. I am saying this because now I can compare this with other parks I visited. I didn't like that lions had at least 10 feet high (probably more) fence you still had to keep your windows closed which means that we weren't able to make pictures. Rhinos were cool and one ostrich wanted to put her head... More

LCS is one of my favorite places. It is a drive through wildlife park. It is accredited with the American Zoological Association and participates in breeding programs for endangered species. If you go early in the day you will have time to drive through again after you visit the amusement park (before 4:30) when the last cars can go through... More

Its really a zoo that you drive thru, which is more humane I feel, as it allows the animals the freedom to exist and roam in a more open and natural environment. If you go at the right time of day, they feed the animals in stalls near the road so you'll be luck to be super close up to... More

What a wonderful park. We arrived on Tuesday following Thanksgiving. No crowds, great weather and lots of time to see the animals up close and personal. We arrived at 10 in the morning when they open. There were about 6 cars total waiting to be admitted. We were given a CD along with a map and a few instructions from... More

I visited Lion Country Safari while I was driving from Miami to Orlando coming back off of a cruise. Living in Florida I have always seen the signs on the highways for it but never stopped to check it out. I really wish I had. We only did the drive-through portion and spent about 2.5 hours out there stopping and... More

We were visiting family in Boynton Beach for the Thanksgiving weekend. We decided to go to Lion Country Safari for something fun to do on the Friday after. To our surprise they had a "Black Friday" special for adult admission; $20 per person. So, four of us went. We paid the adult admission for our little one because it was... More

Recent trip with my son and grand daughter was very enjoyable. Very clean environment for both the drive and walking portions. Nice variety of wildlife. Restaurant was reasonable and very organized. A little expensive but you can easily get discount coupons online. Under 3 is free.

Nellie from the front office where obtained a rental vehicle gave outstanding service. Kind, friendly, easy to talk to. Went above and beyond helping by taking my phone number to call me when my transportation back to hotel arrived. The park has a variety for all. Drive thru safari, walk around, great events and shows. Animal feedings. The restaurant was... More

Narrated CD helps describe what animals and regions that viewers are seeing as you drive around the park. But once you walk through, some attractions are an extra cost or aren't even running. Way less informative than comparable parks (definitely not Disney quality!) although we hoped to have our kids appreciate a park we'd enjoyed as children.
