Went there with my daughter and 3 year old granddaughter and we had a great time. Lots of animals to see even lions, tigers, monkeys and we didn't even go up to the petting zoo to see additional animals. The open bed safari "bus" allowed us to observe the small groups of animals up close and personal with the driver's... More

We went for Mother's day based on the offer of a Safari Ride and some animal exhibits. Honestly, we were not expecting much considering the location (rural PA). However, we were blown away. First off, there is ample parking (free) and entry is pretty cheap (plus free for Mil). Once in, the park is pretty large and very well maintained.... More

Lake Tobias Wildlife Park was a great place to spend the day with family. It was so much fun going from one part of the park to the other, with more to see. It was great getting up close and in front of the animals- feeding them and petting them. Both the kids and the adults had so much fun!... More

This is a great place to visit in the summer! I go every summer with my family and I have memorized the park map! Great park for all ages! As a member of the Halifax community, I enjoy the safari ride.

The safari ride section has been updated. The reptile house is definitely worth stopping in .45 minute drive from the city of Harrisburg.

I was looking for something different to do with my five year old son. My mom and I decided to try this place since we heard a lot of great things about it. We had a great time looking at all the different animals. The safari ride is a must. It was our favorite part of the trip.

Lake Tobias has always been a favorite of locals. The safari rides are great. We always sit up front in hopes that one of the big animals will come close. The Tobias family is great by always giving back to the community. They are very welcoming to all visitors - always a good time. Try a Buffalo Burger when you... More

I cant say enough about this wildlife park. All the buildings are clean and well kept. The food is really good. The animals are all kept in large enclosures. They all are very well cared for. Some of the enclosures are so big with so much for the animals to do that you cant see them which is great for... More
