Create an itinerary including The Wilds
Visit rare and endangered animals in a natural, outdoor setting at The Wilds. The safari park and conservation center houses animals from around the world like rhinos, giraffes, bison, camels, cheetahs, and other uncommon creatures. The park aims to promote conservation through education and personal experiences with the animals. The nearly 4,000 hectare (10,000 acre) park includes a birding station, and butterfly habitat, and a 10 hectare (27 acre) Carnivore Conservation Center. Over 24 km (15 mi) of mountain biking and hiking trails wind through the park, and it contains more than 150 lakes. Take the basic safari tour to learn about the endangered animals from a knowledgeable guide, or try a tour with one of the park's staff members who will take you through their day-to-day work with the animals. See The Wilds and all Cumberland has to offer by arranging your trip with our Cumberland trip itinerary planning site.

  • We absolutely loved The Wilds. We stayed in a Premium Yurt for two nights., May 2021. The employees were so kind and helpful, the food and menu choices, for those who stay in Nomad Ridge, were excellent. We were very impressed. We did The Wild Side Tour, which I highly recommend, was beyond amazing. Our tour guide, Hannah made our tour so special. She was a wealth of knowledge and you could clearly tell that she loves and takes pride in her work. My only recommendation would be, be prepared for walking. We stayed in Yurt 7 and it has a steep decline and is one of your lower Yurts, with a lake view. Going up to the car from the Yurt was difficult for me. Next time, I would request one with easier access. Yurts do NOT have TVs and cell reception is very hit and miss; which is understandable out in the wilderness! Be prepared for pure Peace and Relaxation. We loved it and would highly recommend!!
  • We've been going to the Wilds since 2010. There is always something new.
