My wife and I had a few hours on our hands and decided to visit the park. The animals were incredible, and the staff was uniformly friendly. Like many places such as this, the admission was a little pricey and the food was expensive. The midday show (Tigersplash) was fun, but a little underwhelming. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent.

We've wanted to see this park for years but we didn't have time in the fall or spring. The animals were all out in the comfortable 60-70 degrees so we planned it right. We watched three of the animal shows and observed respect, love and safety from the caretakers. The park felt more like a sanctuary than a zoo...they were... More

We took the Unimog tour. It was well worth it. Only 6 guests. We had a Great tour gal/guide. She was fun and knowledgeable. It's rather barren desert landscape in winter. The animals appear to be well cared for. The tiger splash is fun. The little kids really enjoy it.

We took a day trip from Phoenix to visit the park with family ages 9-56. We had an absolutely fabulous time. The animals come up to the fence for close up viewing. The walking paths are flat and manageable for those with walking difficulty. I regret that I did not make note if the bus was wheelchair friendly. The staff... More

While initially it appears to be very pricey for the number of animals and limited space, when you consider it is entirely privately owned without any state funding, the amount is very much worth it. We did the Expedition Passport which includes feeding a tiger and the Unimog tour. The Tiger Splash show was amazing. We were all on the... More

Out of Africa Safari is better than any zoo I have visited. The animals are rescued, and have lots of room to roam; two huge plusses. Because we had two small children with us, we primarily did the tours on the open busses. The guides-drivers were very informative, and happy to answer questions. The animals approach the vehicles to get... More

This was our 2nd trip to the park. I do think there seem to be fewer exhibits than I remember from the last trip, but it is still a very enjoyable day. I highly recommend doing the unimog portion as you get so very close to the animals you can literally reach out and touch them! (Although some you wouldn't... More

Overall, this place was awesome. We got there right on time for the Tiger Show, Snake Show and the Feeding of the Predators. The shows were funny yet exciting at the same time and each Predator got a whole turkey to themselves! We also took the bus ride at the end of the day and we got to feed a... More

My family was in town and they wanted to go again as it had been a few years since they last went. They LOVED it!!!! The animals are not in cages but are enclosed behind fences where everyone is safe. The Park does NOT train the animals. The animals are there for their enjoyment. One example of this is the...
