Where are we going today?
Have you ever wanted to go to Africa, and drive through those iconic parks like Kruger where there are just animals everywhere you look? Exotic, beautiful animals that you have never seen in real life before?
Well, Tennessee Safari Park is bringing Africa (and the rest of the world) to you! There are over 1000 animals that represent over 100 different species - including those that are rare and engendered.
As you drive, you will encounter deer, wildebeest, emu, ostrich, antelope, and seasonally bison as you enjoy the 2.5 miles of track! And what's even more exciting - you can wind down your window and feed them! Have you ever hand fed a bison? Make sure you use their special feed though - their tummies are different from yours and ours and they don't really like twinkies or chocolate!
Once you are feeling you need to stretch your legs, you can head to the Walk Thru Zoo where you experience scaly reptiles, exotic birds and funny looking amphibians, as well as mammals! You can chat to the animal ambassadors, and even hand feed Jerry! What's Jerry you ask? A donkey? A sheep? Nope - a giraffe! You might be the first person in your class to hand feed a real giraffe!
There are super cute pygmy goats and llamas in the petting zoo that you can interact with and if you're lucky you might see some baby animals around!
The safari park is much more than a zoo - it's a place where animals can roam naturally and not worry about being in a small enclosure.
How much does it cost?
When can we go?
Mon to Sat 10am to 5pm; Sun 12pm to 5pm.
The park is open 7 days a week from early spring until late fall.
Students love to learn about biology and wildlife on their field trips. The park really want to spread the message about conservation, and so students get discounted rates and a guided tour!.
Feel free to take your own picnic lunch! .
Doing our bit
The park have a long history with breeding rare and endangered animals. They have bred zebra, bison, and antelope, and always expanding. Some of the animals are not always on display for their own wellbeing, but it just means they are being looked after. .
Why not have your party there! They have a Zoo-It-Yourself party package for you! .

Just got back from my family's second visit to TN Safari Park and it was even better than the first time. They've apparently made some improvements since my last visit. Feeding the animals was a blast. My 2-year old loved feeding every single animal. The outdoor petting zoo was fun. Getting up close and feeding the giraffe, goats, camels, llamas, and more was by far my daughters favorite thing. Everything about this place is fun. Gift shop prices are a bit high, but I wasn't there to buy gifts. Jackson, TN is only about 20 minutes away so you can...Read More

We had a very good time here. Our 3 boys enjoyed the drive-through portion, and feeding the animals through the van window. The birds made a mess and we laughed at all the feed buckets knocked to the ground by the larger animals. Around $60 for the 5 of us + 4 buckets of food. A few of the animals we saw: wildebeast, buffalo, camel, waterbuck, ostrich, reas, emus, lemurs, and a giraffe.

This was an awesome park/zoo. Very interactive, and a great deal for the price. It was fun for every family member and it's a great place to take little ones. May is a great time to come, it's not too hot and there are lots of babies being born!

Jackson, TN is only about 20 minutes away so you can take the kids on nice outdoor adventure and then hit up some good food and shopping afterwards. A+++
