Animals, animals and more animals! Franklin Drive Thru Safari allows you to experience over 35 different types of animals, without having to leave your car! That means, they can roam free in a more natural environment than the cages in a zoo, and you can watch them and learn from them safely from your vehicle!
There are the desert loving camels, the iconic Bison (you might even see babies if you are lucky!), beautifully colored peacocks, and the staple of Africa - the zebra, just to name a few!
For those kids who just can't wait to pat and touch the animals. there is a petting zoo they can do this in, which is a lot safer than touching the wild animals in the safari. Here there are smaller animals, such as monkeys, that you can feed at a distance, but still have that great experience of interaction with them.
You might even get a deer to eat straight from the cup in your hand! What a special moment that would be!
They aren't the only ones that have to eat, though, so you can bring a delicious picnic for lunch, and enjoy it as a family in one of their picnic areas. After lunch if the little ones want to expel some of that energy from sitting in the car, there is a small play area where they can run, climb and slide all that energy out!
If you want to learn a little more about the animals, you can organize a guided tour with the friendly staff there who will educate you on the animals habitats, nature and fun facts about them.
They can also host parties there, so if you wanted to have a party with the animals just give them a call and see what you can do!
Say hi to the deer for us!
Don't forget your camera!
They have snacks, water and soda available. Make sure you keep hydrated!
The animals are located in between Franklin and Hearne - 4 miles from Franklin on the right, and 8 miles from Hearne on the left.
Kids will learn so many interesting facts about all the animals in the park, including their nature and habitats.
They have a gift shop! We love a good gift shop, and at this one they sell shirts so you can wear them on your next visit!
If you have special needs, give them a call to see what access there is for you. Great thing is, most of it is in your own car!
