  • Great place. I've enjoyed this park for decades. It's so nice to drive through and enjoy watching the animals from the vehicle looking out as zebras, rhinos, giraffes etc run free around us. It's almost like we are in the cage and they are free instead of the other way around like in a zoo. Animals seem happy and very well cared for, staff is friendly and helpful and there is a nice area to walk around and let the kids play in the water park and a restaurant to sit in the air conditioning and have a affordable bite to eat. A lovely park.
  • We loved out visit to Lion Country Safari! We were visiting from Ohio and could not have been more pleased. Our almost 3 year old was very excited to see all the animals. She had her eyes glued to them the whole car portion of the safari. Inside the park we had the most fun doing the giraffe feeding and the splash pad.
