This non-profit organization was established in 1972, and is the only drive-through animal park in the state of Oregon.
The safari consists of a 600+ acre park of which are portion is set up as a drive-through for visitors.
It makes sense that this park attracts over 200,000 visitors every year.
While you’re here, you’ll experience up-close encounters with zebras, lions, ostriches, hippos, and more.
In addition to the drive-through safari experience, you can participate in the variety of Wildlife Safari’s daily programs.
Although this park has an abundance of entertainment, it doesn’t stop there.
Wildlife Safari is the top cheetah breeding facility outside of Africa, and is the second-best breeder in the world.
This park also provides educational programs to veterinary interns, elementary students, and high school students studying ecology.
Not only does Wildlife Safari have thrilling safaris for animal lovers, but they are also dedicated to protecting animals, conserving the environment, and educating the public.
I’ve been to the Wildlife Safari with my family many times and we have always enjoyed our time there.
The drive-through portion is paid admission but you can also visit the Village which is free.
There is animal viewing; a playground; a cafe; washrooms and more.
Driving your own vehicle, it takes about 1-1/2 hours to complete. You will receive a map of the park to enhance your experience and help identify animals with your admission. You care not allowed to leave your vehicle while you are on the drive-through.
Groupon typically has some good deals on admission to the Wildlife Safari. I would check their latest offering to see if you can save some money on admission.
