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

My wife and I went there earlier today for a trip together. We had a lot of fun with the safari tour and our tour guide was very good and knowledgeable about all of the animals and the history of the facility. There may not have been as many animals there as there would be at a normal zoo, but... More

It was a pretty grey day when we visited but there's plenty to see the safari was interesting with plenty of friendly animals that you can feed. The goats in the petting zoo didn't seem to be able to differentiate between clothes and food but we had fun avoiding them. Entrance fee seemed reasonable and I think coupons may have... More

We spent the afternoon at the Lake Tabias Animal Park. The safari ride was fantastic. The tour guide filled you in with many facts about this place and the animals that live there. You could feed the animals with popcorn, actually let some of them eat right from your hand. This action brought the animals right next to the touring... More

This is an interesting animal park, about 30 minutes north of Hershey/Harrisburg. So if you are staying in that area, this makes a great day trip. It is 100+ acres of farmland that was turned into an animal preserve. There are school buses that are modified to have no roof, so they are open-air vehicles that take people on the... More

Another relatively inexpensive trip. We went here on a trip to Hershey Park and Harrisburg/Lancaster area. The highlight is certainly the tour. You actually get to get up and personal so to speak with the animals out there and feed them, nice! The reptile show was really nice as well. Besides that, the place isn't tremendous, and there is no... More
