I've been twice and would gladly go again! It's so cool to view and feed the wildlife in a natural habitat. I spent hours driving through this gorgeous park, just poking along looking for new animals and feeding everyone that begged for food. The man at the visitors center was very nice and happy to answer questions. So much fun!

make sure you have enough feed for animals. They will closer if you have some feed.
Get comfortable in your own car and enjoy.

We thoroughly enjoyed the drive thru safari. I felt it was a bit expensive but that wouldn’t stop me from returning. The only thing that kept it from being a five star rating is the vehicle ahead of us that fed the animals from their hands and felt the need to pet everything. This made the some of the animals feel it was okay to go in the next Cars window. We seen several vehicles coming from the staff only areas but no one got on to the vehicle.

This is a great experience. We had a really good time and enjoyed every minute we were there. The animals are really friendly and would come up to the car to get the treats the staff gave us to feed them. We will definitely go back and will also tell all our friends to go. Loved it!!
