Lake Tobias Wildlife Park, Halifax

4.7
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.

  • Do not hesitate to visit this animal park. While I wish for a bit more variety of animals, the park is well-maintained, accessible, and not expensive. A fun day for all is in store.  more »
  • Very nice zoo. Due to Covid we drove ourselves through the safari park, it was wonderful! We saw many animals. The walk through park was also great. The food was reasonably priced. The employees...  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!!!
