Lion Country Safari
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for this exciting filed trip! We need to arrive promptly at 9:40 AM. Please plan for enough time to drive up to the site. We will all go in as a group. Pack a lunch and hang around to do some of the other activities outdoors.
The Drive-Through-Safari is divided into seven sections, which houses more than 900 animals, kept in large fenced areas with about five miles of paved roadway running through it.
You drive your own car through it, at your own pace, while listening to a recorded narration. Some of the animals, like giraffes, can come right up to your car. Others, like lions, arephysically separated from the vehicles.
Afterwards, let's park and go inside!!
New Water Park is open! Amusement Park rides, miniature golf, animal feeding opportunities, and even an animal theater: The Walk-Through-Safari boasts all of them and more. You can navigate the islands of Lake Shanalee on a paddleboat (fee), where siamangs and spider monkeys dance in the trees; pan for gems and fossils at the Orange River Mining Company (fee); or take the Safari Plunge down a twisted waterslide. You can get lost in the Safari Maze, let your toddlers have a toot on the Rio Grande Train, or tempt a giraffe to nibble a treat from your hand (fee). A can’t-miss attraction is the Lory Bird Aviary. Spend the $2 to buy a cup of nectar, and you’ll be a big hit with the exotic birds, who will happily roost on your wrist for a sip.
Bring your swim suit, water shoes, and sunscreen! It's going to be a day full of fun. Event happens rain or shine. Sorry, no refunds.
