What is there to do?

Gone Wild Safari just loves their animals...and so do we!  They are different than zoos that you are used to.  The animals here are considered part of their family, and have plenty of space in the pastures to roam around freely. It's one big playground!  

Every animal has their own personality, and are well looked after.  Do you think you can tell what the animals personalities are like?  Which ones are the shy ones?  Which are the jokers? 

They have a host of animals from all around the world - from zebra, camels, the bouncy kangaroos and those slow moving giant turtles...

If you want to really get up close and personal with the animals just pop over to the petting zoo! You will find the cuddliest and cutest animals over there, and they are well behaved so you have nothing to worry about.  The animals love the attention!

If you arrive in season, you might be lucky to see some babies with their mothers!  Have you ever patted a zebu (do you know what one is?) or a pygmy goat?  it's also educational as well as fun, so you will be able to learn all about the animals you are making friends with!

There's also a fun parakeet enclosure where you can be covered with these sweet feathered creatures, a slithery playground with a very cool serpent themed tire gym, and a fascinating mining company with a water sleuth where you can pan for 48 different varieties of gemstones!

Word of warning though...you may enjoy it so much you want to come back.
