What to Expect
You’ll begin the safari by driving through seven different sections of the wildlife preserve. You’ll get to see everything from zebras to giant tortoises to kudus and, of course, lions. You can even spot chimpanzees and giraffes! The animals are free to roam in an environment that’s as similar as possible to their native land. As you carefully drive along, you will feel like your car has been transported into the safari.
Once you’ve experienced the drive, try embarking on the walk-through area of the preserve. Also called Safari World, this section allows you to get up close with more animals, play in the water, and ride five different rides. Be sure to save time for the carousel, the petting zoo, and the miniature golf course! Lion Country Safari is an excellent place for the entire family.
