Where are we going today?

There is something special about a zoo anyway - experiencing creatures from all over the world, all in the one place. But at Aloha Safari Zoo, there is something even more special for the kids to experience.

They are actually a rescue zoo, which means all of the 300 exotic creatures have come from a back background, but have a second chance in life! It's a great learning experience for the kids.

At Aloha Safari Zoo, there is also a petting zoo with those sweet barn animals - as well as camels! Kids - do you know the difference between camels with one hump and two? Ask at the zoo and you'll find out!

Kids can come face to face with some amazing creatures, including bears, tigers, and zebra. Make sure they chat to the staff and understand the stories and personalities of the animals. It's an invaluable experience where they can understand the connection we really do have with the creatures on this planet, and why we should take care of the them all.

Ready to go on safari? No, we don't mean in Africa - we mean on the Safari Ride! This guided fun around the perimeter of the park gives the family plenty to see within the enclosures, and gives you a chance to see the animals that might have been hiding before!

You might even spot some free roaming breeds too!

Sweet animal fun at the Aloha Safari Zoo, where they really have the animals best interest at heart! Don't forget those cameras!

    We took our kids to this haven for rescued exotic animals this past Saturday and we all had a great time! By far one of the best experiences we've had at an educational zoo.

    One of the many highlights of our experience was hand feeding a giraffe! You have the opportunity to feed most of the three hundred animals brought here from some dire situations.

    A 25 minute wagon ride pulled by a tractor through most of the acreage takes you on safari. Don't miss this adventure and get there early as interest builds quickly and there is only one tour at...Read More

    God Bless The People That Run That Place!!

    My 3 yr old nephew, sister, mother, and myself LOVED IT!
    And we have grown up in Orlando, Florida! Land of Attractions!!

    Don't miss the tracker ride. Makes it all worth it. Great Staff too!

    One request.....They have a beautiful bear (and they saved it, and its happy, so don't think its abused by any means...) but it I really think it could have a little more room to roam. It seemed like he would have liked some more space.

    What a great place to visit. Small but full of a variety of animals. My two year old son loved when they brought out the baby animals for close interaction. He got to pet a baby monkey, tiger, and alligator. We also purchased a bag of food and fed almost every animal there. Great hidden gem a little ways off I95.

    We had a wonderful time with my grandson's class today and the information was great! The people who work there were very personal and eager to answer any of our questions! Thank you John and Chad for a great day!

We took our kids to this haven for rescued exotic animals this past Saturday and we all had a great time! By far one of the best experiences we've had at an educational zoo.

One of the many highlights of our experience was hand feeding a giraffe! You have the opportunity to feed most of the three hundred animals brought here from some dire situations.

A 25 minute wagon ride pulled by a tractor through most of the acreage takes you on safari. Don't miss this adventure and get there early as interest builds quickly and there is only one tour at a time seating about 40 people.

This 65 acre zoo takes 45 minutes to an hour driving from The Triangle and operates on Saturday and Sunday only from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Admission is $8 per person over 24 months old and the ride is $3. You can also buy food to feed the animals for another $3 per paper lunch bag filled with grains, bread, and popcorn. Major credit cards are accepted.

Refreshments are not available except for a shaved ice station which might be seasonal. There are picnic tables for you to bring and enjoy a meal as well as a playground area.

We'll come back to visit the animals again and watch the tiger cub, Luna, grow into a big cat like her Mom, who also lives here with Luna's Dad, beside Bodie the Grizzly Bear!
