What is there to do?

Ever wanted to explore the plains of Africa, and come face to face with amazing, exotic and beautiful animals? Then just head to Ohio! Think we're kidding? Think again!

The African Safari Wildlife Park is a super fun and educational day for the whole family, with over 400 amazing creatures roaming free on an 100 acre preserve.

This unique attraction has TWO fun safari adventures for you to explore, and your admission gets you BOTH!

The drive through safari let's you explore the park all from the comfort of your own vehicle.  You can take your time making your way around the preserve, in awe of all the magical animal encounters you're going to have, AND you can even feed some of the animals!

Have you ever fed a camel? Perhaps you have always wanted to get right up close to a giraffe? At this amazing wildlife park - you can! 

Deer will roam around you. Bison will play nearby. From Alpaca, Bongo, and Zebra, you can encounter some of the most unique and beautiful animals native to Africa.

There are also sections of the park that you can walk through. It's a true once-in-a-lifetime experience (unless of go back to African Safari Wildlife Park again and again!)

The whole family can experience the animals similar to a zoo setting. There are some amazing shows, and fun entertainment, and there are some very cool exhibits, like the rare White Alligator exhibit.

It's all about you and the animals are the African Safari Wildlife Park! Don't forget those cameras!
