The Wilds, Cumberland

#1 of 115 in Wildlife in Ohio
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.

  • Wonderful experience seeing the animals roam free. We took the pickup truck ride where we got to feed and pet some animals. Great experience and fun. Very educational. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. We did this twice and second time stayed in a Yerk Highly recommended if you enjoy animals and want hands on adventure
  • The wild is one of the most interesting places we've ever been. Many wild animals that you don't get to see very often. We went on a tour and it was interesting because it rained buckets but we still continue to tour.there are tours you can go on where you can actually feed the animals we chose not to do that. The gift shop was fun and had nice things in it.
