Sometimes you get animal attractions that make you feel like you are roaming the grand African savannah on safari, as the exotic animals roam free around you. You could be in Africa, or you could be in Oklahoma at Arbuckle Wilderness Park!
Arbuckle Wilderness Park has over 200 acres for you to explore, just teeming with wildlife from all corners of the globe.
It's a fun filled land of adventure, wonder, and the weird and wonderful creatures, and the perfect place for kids to learn all about nature, habitats, and conservation!
The wilderness park is explored using your own vehicle, so you can really see some of these creatures up close from the safety of your own car! There are those amazing white rhinos, stunning zebras, unusual water buffalo, even those tall giraffes! You might just get some visitors to your car window too...
You might even be able to feed the giraffes if you are REALLY good!
Arbuckle Wilderness Park is much more than a safari park though (if that wasn't enough!) - the House of Reptiles is the perfect place to discover those scaly wonders, and the petting zoo is where kids can enjoy hands on experiences with those cute domestic animals!
For a little more adventure, you can take to the tracks with the go cart racers, as well as take on the family with the bumper boats - AND a walk thru zoological area.
So let's get WILD in Oklahoma - the animals are waiting!
