Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Hundreds of wild and exotic animals from around the world. Open-air Safari Tour busses take you along 150 acres of rolling hills to view the wildlife in their natural habitat. Safari Tour Guides give you interesting facts about the animals as they come close enough to the bus for you to touch. Tigers, lions, zebras and ostriches are a few of the many zoo exhibits you will see as you stroll along the park grounds. See pythons, alligators and interesting creatures in the new Reptiles & Exotics building where special educational shows are given throughout the day. And the Petting Zoo is a favorite spot for anyone that likes to pet pygmy goats and camels. Picnic facilities, concession stand and souvenirs available. Great place for company picnics, birthday parties and family get-togethers.

  • Great fun! You get to drive yourself and can pretty much go at your own speed. It is a little rocky and steep in places but there were lots of cars there on the day we visited and I didn't see...  more »
  • The jeep tour is closed due to the pandemic so you drive the safari park. The road is narrow and slow because you cannot pass so be patient. The animals are well-fed and, since they are herd...  more »
  • Visited this past weekend with family and a few friends. Overall we all enjoyed most of the park. The safari tour was awesome, Sara our tour guide was great. The kids loved the petting zoo. So why only ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️? It was very hard to watch those lions in that small cage. I am not an expert on lion psychology, but to me they looked very sad and defeated. While munching on a bison burger I googled minimum cage requirements for large cats. Scanning through first legitimate looking site I found. It stated 10’ x 24’ minimum per cat. I saw two cats in their cage and did not measure it but if I had to guess now I’d say the cage at Lake Tobias is 30’x30’. Anyhow. It doesn’t seem near big enough. Standing back observing other guests reactions when approaching enclosure weren’t all positive either. When you hear “poor lion” or a kid ask “how do they get to run”. It would be great to see a larger enclosed built for them.
  • My family loves to come here. You can walk the park to see some of the animals, but the coolest part is the safari ride. Make sure to get popcorn and carrots for you and the animals. You can bring your own food and drinks. It was great for my 2 year old and seven year old. Highly recommend!!!
