Bison and wolves and bears....oh my! Bearizona allows you to enjoy animals as they should be enjoyed - roaming around in a natural environment! You won't find any cages or enclosures. Here, from the safety of your car, you can enjoy a wide variety of beautiful wildlife up close!
Have you ever seen a bison up close? They're pretty spectacular! You might even spot the nimble big horn sheep playing with their own families. Arctic and Gray wolves prowl the area, and black bears roam the lands. You might even spot sweet bear cubs!
The beautiful thing about Bearizona, is that you can take as long as you like. Stop, and enjoy the animals. Take photos, and just observe them acting how they were born to act. With your paid admission you can drive through as many times as you like up until the park closes at dusk. You can really get a sense of the animals natural behaviors, and how they interact with each other.
You might witness some pretty incredible moments!
To see everything properly, you should allow at least 2 hours for your visit, which also includes the Fort Bearizona walk through area, where you might catch a glimpse of juvenile bears in the bear kindergarten, and interact with their cute mini farm animals in the barnyard!
In addition to the animal encounters you will have on your drive, there are also daily shows where you can learn more about them from the knowledgable keepers within the park.
There are 3 Birds of Prey shows a day, and even otter feeding where these adorable furry creatures will feast.
It's a great way to learn of the importance of these animals, and why conservation is so important. Also, you get to encounter beautiful animals of North America!
It's an amazing country with even more amazing wildlife to be explored!

The animals at Bearizona have ample area to roam and may not be visible at all times so feel free to drive through the drive-thru portion of the park a second time to ensure that you get to see the best levels of activity from each species!
The animals are moving around best early in the morning or late in the afternoon so if you want to see more action, then try and get there for these times.
There are two on site restaurants that you can enjoy before or after your WILD day out!
