Whether you opt to walk the park or take a guided safari tour, all visitors will experience an up-close look at animals in their spacious natural habitats.

Take your camera and be ready. Tour was awesome and I learned so much. Don’t pass this one up. Young and old alike will see so many animals. Be sure to bring some money for the awesome gift shop.

Hello Wanda, None of our animals are loose. We provide large spacious natural habitats for the animals. Each habitat is completely fenced to ensure the safety of the animals and the public.
