A drive around the safari park was great, up close and personal with the animals, including feeing them. They are very crafty though, they know that stopping in front of your car means food! Expect to get some of the food pellets in your car...More

Lots of animals and varieties. I thought it was a little pricey considering food was not included but The animals looked well taken care of. The animals have learned to come up right at the gate for food. I'd recommend saving some food for later...More

We had a wonderful time here. Would highly recommend this for any animal lover. My granddaughter had a blast being up close and feeding the animals from the car. We will definitely go again.

I did not know what to expect on our first visit here, but we had so much fun! First off, expect your vehicle to get dirty! The animals know most visitors purchase buckets of feed and they meet your vehicle and follow you along. The...More

Well worth the price ! The park keeps you busy all day and is set on pretty rolling land and woods. VERY CLEAN. The animals looked healthy, well fed, and most roam about in small groups as they please. The part you will never forget...More
