In addition to the Safari Drive-Thru, stroll along the pathways in the Safari Village where you will find a wide variety of exhibits everyone can enjoy!
I absolutely love it here. I take my son and it's a two hour drive just to get there. The park is huge and we'll maintained. There's a nice selection of animals. The feed prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and attentive. The small walk through zoo is pleasant and my son loves posing with all the photography cut outs. It's a great place for families.
This was so much fun! An incredible experience for the whole family. If getting up close and personal with large animals scares you, skip this. But if you're adventurous and love animals this is for you. *Get extra empty bowls of feed so you can use a little at a time, the animals knock your feed down or take the bowl, hold it tightly. We loved loved loved this place! Friendly staff, clean, pretty decent bathrooms and the animals are very well taken care of. Easy on your wallet too. Overall, wonderful memories await you and your family!
This is an amazing place to bring your kids on a trip. It took us about 4 hours to get here from Fairfax county, but was totally worth the trip. We took the truck and they let you ride in the back and feed the animals. The llamas could get a little aggressive, but our kids that are 2 and 4 did fine with one adult in the back. Feeding the giraffes was also a treat since they are my little girls favorite animal. We will come in the near future. Strongly suggest a family trip to this place.
What a wonderful way to see the animals! They have multiple ways to see the animals. There is a walking area that you can touch some of the animals and a bird area where they can land on stick to feed the birds. The main park you can drive though or you can ride one of their open wagons. It was around 100 for our family of five and that was with two buckets of food. The maximum buckets they allow you to buy is four and I wished we would have done that. It takes about two hours to go though the park and our kids really enjoyed it. This is a great experience for all ages and I can't wait to go back again.
My husband and I had the best experience going through the entire park today. Such a fun way to spend a Saturday in November! The animals swarm your car and I was nervous they might cause damage(and looking at past reviews it looks like it happens on occasion), so definitely keep that in mind before choosing which car to take. But it really was one of the best Saturday afternoons we've ever had!
