My daughter and I have visited Safari North twice in the past year. This is an excellent place to visit, and the animals all appear to be happy. We plan to visit again soon.

Didn't even know this place was here until we noticed it in a tourist brochure. Great fun in the bird cage and the camels were cool. Kids really enjoyed the experience.
