Wildlife Safari Winston
Where are we going today?
Have you ever wanted to go on an African Safari, and see those big cats roaming in the wild? Well, if you are in Oregon, then Wildlife Safari might be the next best thing!
Wildlife Safari is where you can just hop in your car, and explore the 4.5 mile trek through animals from Asia, Africa and the Americas - all from the safety and comfort of your car!
There are 600 acres to explore, and a LOT of amazing creatures! All of the animals are in natural habitats, which means no small enclosures. Here, kids can see them as close to being in the wild as they can (without getting a plane!)
If you're lucky you might see some curious animals come right up to your car and take a peek inside! Talk about a face to face animal encounter!
From those fast cheetahs, to grand elephants, or beautiful bears, Wildlife Safari brings the creatures of the world to you!
If you want to experience the animals on a much more personal scale, you can book in a personal sessions for a close feeding encounter - certainly a once in a lifetime experience!
Once you have had your incredible animal safari, just head on over to The Village where it's you back on your two feet, explore the other animal exhibits including the Children's Petting Zoo! There is also a fun train that runs seasonally, and lots of special events too!

I had heard about the Safari from a friend a few years ago and decided to spend the day there on my way down to San Francisco for vacation. I thought that the staff was very helpful and very nice. I decided to spend the extra money to feed the giraffe. Mate, the giraffe was very gentle and sweet. Mate enjoyed the veggies that we handed him. For some reason, Mate thought that my head was a veggie because he put my head into his mouth. It was a tad weird and very cool, I won't soon forget it. The cheetah's were out and about which was cool....Read More

The cheetah's were out and about which was cool. I got to see two of them very up close, I could have petted them if it was allowed. I talked to the vet and he said that the vets at the safari were hoping that the female was pregnant. I hope that there will be another baby cheetah. I would be willing to drive the 5 plus hours to see the baby. I got to see all sorts of animals and they all looked very healthy. I was very impressed with the Safari and would recommend all animal lovers to visit. I can't wait to go again.
