This is very interesting wild life park. The safari tour is well worth it with all the information that the guide gives you. It is truly wonderful the sanctuary that these people are doing for the animals. Great stop while enjoying the historic route 66.

Take your camera and be ready. Tour was awesome and I learned so much. Don’t pass this one up. Young and old alike will see so many animals. Be sure to bring some money for the awesome gift shop.

Hello Wanda, None of our animals are loose. We provide large spacious natural habitats for the animals. Each habitat is completely fenced to ensure the safety of the animals and the public.
