Gone Wild Safari Pineville
Where are we going today?
Gone Wild Safari just loves their animals...and so do we! They are different than zoos that you are used to. The animals here are considered part of their family, and have plenty of space in the pastures to roam around freely. It's one big playground!
Every animal has their own personality, and are well looked after. Do you think you can tell what the animals personalities are like? Which ones are the shy ones? Which are the jokers?
They have a host of animals from all around the world - from zebra, camels, the bouncy kangaroos and those slow moving giant turtles...
If you want to really get up close and personal with the animals just pop over to the petting zoo! You will find the cuddliest and cutest animals over there, and they are well behaved so you have nothing to worry about. The animals love the attention!
If you arrive in season, you might be lucky to see some babies with their mothers! Have you ever patted a zebu (do you know what one is?) or a pygmy goat? it's also educational as well as fun, so you will be able to learn all about the animals you are making friends with!
There's also a fun parakeet enclosure where you can be covered with these sweet feathered creatures, a slithery playground with a very cool serpent themed tire gym, and a fascinating mining company with a water sleuth where you can pan for 48 different varieties of gemstones!
Word of warning though...you may enjoy it so much you want to come back.
How much does it cost?
- Children$8 (Ages 2 - 12)
- Free Under: 2
When can we go?
Daily 9am - 5pm
The Gone Wild Safari are happy to accommodate school field trips, which include the safari tour, petting zoo and a cup of feed. Picnic lunches are options, but it's a great way for kids to learn about the animals, their natural habitats and nature..
Any Top Tips?
You can have your birthday here! They have a huge safari themed party room which you can use. Have a chat to the friendly staff if your child wants to celebrate their new age in safari style!.
Can I get one of those?
Only if you ask the animals nicely! Once you have finished enjoying the animals, you can take a memory of them home with you. Want to know something even cooler? While shopping, if you ask nicely you might be able to hold one of their LIVE exotic friends! And yes...they have snakes! .
At Christmas you can come and enjoy the reindeer who make a quick stop before having to fly off with Santa!.

Great place to have a day with the family. Don't go expecting anything like Tigers and Elephants. They do have a lot of other animals from Africa. You can feed virtually every animal they have. Go and have fun!

Had a great time. The prices are 12.00 adults, 8.00 kids, 2 and under free. Military and seniors are 10.00. Cups of feed are 2.00 a cup and 20.00 a bucket. Get the bucket!!!! Smaller animals are in the petting zoo and the camels and bigger animals are on the 45 minute tour. You can feed the animals off the bus but hold on to your cups because they will try to still them. You can stay as long as you want too and visit the playground.

Overall had an ok time and the little kids liked it - however it was small and not as many animals as we expected. The guided tour was more a man driving a school bus around a 1/2 mile path showing the same animals from the petting zoo and telling you what it was. You stop to feed the animals 3 times - then its all over - $10 per kid and $12 per adult. Id say you get a bang for your buck by taking the kids to the zoo. Online stated they offered military discounts - when you get there they don't honor it.
Hope this helps
