About 1,100 animals from 50 different species are cared for at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, where animals roam in natural habitats within the 730 hectare (1,800 acre) space. You can drive through the park with your own car along 15 km (9.5 mi) of plains, forested areas, and hills. Reserve a guided tour of the park to see animals such as giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, wolves, and rhinos up close. Certain tours allow you to feed the animals; others take you to behind-the-scenes areas that are not open to drive-through traffic. The center also offers specialty tours for photographers and mountain bikers. You'll find lodging, camping, and dining at the site.

  • We did the guided tour with Jenna and had a wonderful time! Jenna was very knowledgeable and fun. We took our 60 year old mother in law, 8 year old and 6 month old and really enjoyed our time. We saw all but two species and were able to feed three different giraffes! A wonderful weekend experience 😁
  • I absolutely love Fossil Rim! This was our first time here. We did the self-guided tour and the animals came right up to our car. There are animals everywhere on the property. At the gate entrance they give you food to feed the animals. I would recommend this wonderful wildlife center! A plus is that you can take your time without feeling rushed.
