Lot a things to see and do, we spent the whole day, with picnic lunch and the waterpark. Drive thru the park a couple of times to make sure you did not miss anything. Kids loved the elephants bathing

I was unexpectedly impressed. This is a nice family outing, not too spread out. The guides explained that the founder envisioned the animals in a more natural setting and the humans in boxes looking at them instead of the other way around. Excellent, sounds fair to me! We did the safari tour bus, the train and the boat. We saw... More

A good place for outing for families with Kids.. You can see wild animals in Safari mode, and see a bunch of animal related shows. Good place for a picnic..Food is average, so uf you can pack you can have good outing. ALS has very good splash pad. My 7 year old had tonne of fun.

Pretty cool excursion. We had no plans, just the signs on the highway led us into this exquisite safari. I wanted to take my mom's car through, however she was scared of the chimps taking her windshield wipers and side view mirrors. We took the bus which was great for seeing, in the animals in full view, however the kids... More

The kids favourite part is the elephant swim and the drive through the safari area. This is a great day out and is situated in a... More

Everyone had a great day. Our second drive through the safari animal enclosure late in the afternoon was neat. The baboons loved romping all over the Flex and no damage.

Some of us might not ever get to Africa therefore this is a great alternative to an open safari experience. Excellent detour en route to Niagara Falls.

My son and I came here on our way from Detroit to Toronto. After a little trepidation we did the drive yourself through the safari option. We thought it was awesome. The wildlife are really close. An ostrich came up and pecked on our windshield. I thought I was taking a video but turns out not so much. No damage.... More
