What is there to do?

Put that passport down, because you don't need to fly to Africa to enjoy a safari. You just need to be at Lazy L Safari Park in Missouri!

Lazy L Safari Park let's you take a walk on the wild side, as you explore over 50 different exotic animals from all over the plenty! Kids - this isn't like your average zoo. Nope! At Lazy L Safari Park, you can actually get right up close to the animals! 

As you walk through the park, try and spot those animals that you know and love - and then some that you might not have heard of! There are alligators, and alpacas, camels and deer. You will be able to spot ibex, kangaroos, monkeys, reptiles, zebras, and even rheas (did you know that one, kids!)

If you want a really special experience at Lazy L Safari Park, then why not try hand feeding some of the animals! You can purchase bags of feed within the park, and then you just go over to the goats, or parakeets, or even the emus, and see how hungry they are!

(Make sure you only feed the animals that have signs that you can do so!)

You can really make a day at Lazy L Safari Park, with plenty of benches to just sit and animal watch, as well as a picnic shelter for that lovely family lunch.

Let's not forget about the petting zoo! If you want a REAL hands-on experience, you won't get much closer than petting all of the sweet barn animals that call the zoo home.

Did we mention there was gemstone mining? You never know what you might find in there!

Your wild side is calling!

Where is it at?


From Exit 102 on Interstate 55 - go towards Cape Girardeau, Missouri on LaSalle Avenue. Turn right on second road (Baldwin Drive) to the right. Then turn right onto County Road 618. Lazy L Safari Park is located approximately 1/8 mile on left. Watch for signs!

Teachers corner


They offer field trip packages for spring and fall, and they do also book trips in the winter months if the weather is okay. They have an educational program where they can bring the animal to your school too in winter! They also do fun fundraiser nights!

Can I get one of those?


The Safari Gift Shop features animal print purses, bags, scarves, photo frames, gifts, jewelry and even peacock feathers, so bring that pocket money! There are a host of kids items too, including toys, plush animals and puzzles.
