Wild Animal Safari Park Information

No Pets – only Service Animals (as such is defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act and other applicable law)
We love animals and are passionate about animal care. And while we may be Wild Animal Safari, we cannot allow outside pets into our Safari. (We also require that guests not leave pets in their vehicles; in such an event, the Safari may contact animal control to rescue a pet left in a vehicle).

Only Bona Fide Service Animals for Disabled Guests. While we cannot allow pets, we are happy to welcome guests with disabilities who wish to be accompanied by their Service Animals while visiting our Wild Animal Safari. However, due to safety concerns, we may have certain limitations. The only type of animal we can allow into the Safari is a bona fide Service Animal (as such is defined by Law), which is either a dog or a miniature horse, and which has been specially trained to present to assist a disabled guest with a specific task which assists the guest with their disability. A “service animal” vest does not make a dog or mini-horse a Service Animal, as such is legally defined.

Please be forewarned: Do not attempt to bring a dog or mini horse into the Safari as a “Service Animal” if it does not meet the legal definition. State law provides penalties for people who misrepresent having a bona fide Service Animal. Even if a dog or mini-horse is a true Service Animal, the animal may not be brought into the Safari if there is no disabled person who needs the assistance of that animal. We will be compelled to eject the animal and its owner (without refund) if anyone attempts to bring a dog or mini-horse into the Safari, where it is not a true, trained, and legal-defined Service Animal.

Verification of the Service Animal. When an alleged Service Animal is brought to the Safari, the owner will be asked to verify the legitimacy of the animal. A Service Animal is defined by law and not by a person’s definition of desire. For example, an “emotional comfort” or “therapy” dog, or a “security” dog, or a desire to use a mini-horse for a child to ride on, does not constitute a legally defined Service Animal. Examples of common tasks and work performed by legitimate Service Animals include guiding the blind, directing to the deaf, pulling wheelchairs, alerting or protecting a person who is suffering a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take medication, or calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder during an anxiety attack. A Service Animal has been specially trained to provide a specific type of assistance to a disabled person, which addresses a specific disability.


Controlling the Service Animal and its Behavior. Even if a dog or mini-horse is verified as a legally defined Service Animal and allowed to enter the Safari, please note that the guest is responsible for controlling their dog or mini-horse at all times. Guests with a Service Animal must also ensure that the animal goes to the bathroom in areas completely away from Safari structures, people, and other animals; please ask Safari staff where it is best for the animal to relieve itself. If the Service Animal is acting aggressively, unruly, chasing birds or other animals, going after people’s food, or is acting in a manner that causes any type of disturbance, the Service Animal will be required to leave the Safari.

Procedure for Checking in with a Service Animal. Please check-in at the Safari’s Gift Shop to clear your dog or mini-horse as a Service Animal. Safari staff will ask the guest questions about the animal’s training and its ability to perform a needed task for a disabled guest (staff will not make personal inquiries into the guest’s disabilities). Service Animals must have a leash or a harness. Safari staff shall verify that the Service Animal is “housebroken” and will visually assess the Service Animal for obvious signs that it is not a qualified Service Animal (e.g., aggressive, skittish, or erratic behavior, lack of control, or signs of ill-health). Signs of ill health include nasal discharge, foaming at the mouth, hoarse coughing, vomiting, continuous scratching, scabs or open lesions, and evidence of lice or ticks.  If any of these signs are evident, Safari staff shall contact the Wild Animal Safari veterinarian. The veterinarian shall visually assess the Service Animal for health, control, and/or behavioral issues with the guest.  If the Safari veterinarian determines that the Service Animal reasonably poses a threat to the health and safety of Safari guests and animals, the Service Animal will be denied admittance, and the animal will have to leave the Safari.

Service Animals are allowed on the walk-through Wild Animal Safari, but in any event, they must remain leashed/harnessed and be kept on the designated pathways. For safety reasons, Service Animals are not allowed: (i) to interact with or to come into close proximity with any Safari animals; (ii) on any drive-through areas or drive-through Safaris; or (iii) in any aviaries or small enclosures, farm-yards or tortoise encounters. The limitations on Service Animals are subject to change from time to time.

Photography, Recordings & Drones
Personal Photography & Video. Guests are welcome to take pictures of themselves, their friends and family, their group, and the scenery in general for their own personal use. Use extreme caution when taking pictures with our wild animals; keep a safe distance, and NEVER get onto an animal or stand behind an animal. No one should take photographs of other persons who object, or where doing so would tend to violate another’s rights to privacy or publicity, or which are harassing, stalking, or threatening in nature. Image taking or recording is strictly prohibited, under all circumstances, in bathrooms, changing rooms, employee areas, or any “behind the scenes” locations where guests are not permitted.

No Commercial Recordings or Images. Non-personal or commercial photography of any kind is strictly prohibited (including without limitation, still or moving images, modeling shots, student films, comedy routines, documentaries, commercials, journalism or news footage, major motion picture films, Internet channels, reality TV, actor demo reels, submission videos for reality TV, footage as part of a school project, documentation of stunts and dangerous activities (whether for commercial use or not), promotional videos, music videos, nudity or “adult” content, cable programs, etc.), except where prior, written permission has been obtained from the Safari’s General Manager in the form of a written contract. Safari (including its owners and attorneys) shall be entitled to seek and obtain all equitable and legal remedies against any violation of the foregoing prohibitions, including without limitation to obtain restraining orders (temporary and permanent) against the distribution, exhibition, and other dissemination of the images and/or recording, in addition to the right to obtain and destroy all offending materials, and to seek damages, attorneys fees and costs for any applicable causes of action.

Unauthorized or Defamatory Images or Recordings. In any event, where unauthorized images or recordings have been uploaded to any social media or technological platform, site, chat room, app, or channel (whether now known or hereafter created or devised), Safari shall have the unrestricted right and authority to have such materials removed, including through any legal and equitable remedies. Safari shall also have the right to seek and recover damages and attorneys’ fees and costs, including for any defamatory posts on social media.

Drones. Use of drones (in, over, or around the Safari), whether for photographic images or film recording purposes or otherwise, is strictly prohibited. Violators may be subject to immediate ejection from the Safari, confiscation of the drone, and referral of the matter to authorities. Drones may pose an invasion of people’s privacy, a breach of Safari’s confidentiality, tortious interference with Safari’s operations, and an illegal trespass. Drones also pose a serious safety hazard for our animals.

Safari May Take and Use Images (Still or Moving) and Recordings of All Guests. Safari, at all times, shall have the right to take pictures and recordings (Still and Moving) of patrons, and take still images and to utilize those images and recordings for any reason in relation to the Safari (including without limitation its parent company and subsidiaries), including for marketing, advertising, promotion, on social media, in relation to apps, mobile devices, and commercials, via live streaming on the Internet or through any other technologies (whether now known or hereafter devised), for security and safety purposes, in relation to law enforcement investigations and actions, in lawsuits, for training, incorporate videos, for internal investigations and employment actions, for news reporting and journalism, and otherwise. All proprietary rights, including 100% of all copyright, ownership, and interest, shall vest exclusively with Safari in perpetuity, without any compensation to the guest or any other party.

Personal Property
Please understand that the Safari is not responsible for any theft, loss, or damage to any personal property, including, without limitation, a person’s cell phone, wallets, purses, bags, sunglasses, luggage, or any other personal item.

Safari Admission Rules
Tickets. Tickets are valid for 1 year after the date of purchase. Season Passes are non-transferable (and may be subject to cancellation if a Season Pass is given to another person for use).

Prices. Prices are subject to change; buy quickly, so you get the best price before prices go up!

Keep Receipt. Please keep your receipt on your person while visiting the Safari. On occasion, Safari staff may ask you to present your ticket purchase receipt in order to verify your purchase.

Dates & Hours Subject to Change without Notice. Safari reserves the right to change Safari hours and dates of operation, without notice, at any time. The most common cause for such a change would be due to weather or an operational issue. We encourage you to call the Safari to verify dates and hours of opening before you travel to visit the Safari.

Capacity. Safari may also be forced to deny or delay entrance if the Safari is overcapacity.

Stay Safe and enjoy the Beauty and Wonders of our Wild Animal Safari!


Heat and Other Weather Hazards. Weather is unpredictable and may pose health and safety hazards. Being an outdoor Wild Animal Safari, guests will be exposed to the weather conditions. Our Wild Animal Safari is prone to bright sun and (especially in the summer) extreme heat; hot and sunny weather poses a risk of sunburn, heat exhaustion, or (in the worst case), heatstroke (which requires urgent medical attention). Guests may not be aware of their heat illness until it is in an advanced stage. We recommend hats and suntan lotion, light clothing (which covers and protects the majority of one’s skin), staying in shaded areas where possible, not overly exerting oneself, staying hydrated with water and/or electrolyte drinks (drinks without sugar or caffeine are advised since sugar is known to further dehydrate people).

Warning signs of Heat Illness include fatigue, nausea, headaches, weakness, dizziness or delirium, clammy skin, weakened pulse, confusion, and a drenching sweat. Warnings of Heat Stroke include rapid or dramatically slowed heartbeat, loss of consciousness, the rapid rise in body temperature, hot/flushed skin with the absence of sweating, shortness of breath, and convulsions. Heatstroke can be fatal! Alert Safari staff immediately and/or call 9-1-1!

There may also be sudden weather events, such as hail, tornados, dust storms, mist and humidity, microburst storms, lightning, rain and flash floods, extreme wind, etc. Only you can make informed decisions about weather forecasts and whether or not any given day would be appropriate for a Safari visit. In certain weather conditions, the Safari may shut down certain areas of our park, parts of the Wild Animal Safari, or the Safari in its entirety. Guests may be asked to take shelter or to vacate the Safari. Please adhere to all Safari instructions in the event of a weather event.


Disability Accommodations & Safety
It is our sincere desire to accommodate people with all manner of disabilities, and we will comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. That said, please understand that we must maintain control and discretion as to whether or not we can safely accommodate people in certain areas of the Safari or with certain activities. Safari personnel are happy to assist you with your needs for accommodation.

There may be times where (depending upon the nature of one’s disabilities and/or our ability to safely accommodate a person without undue hardship to the Safari) a guest might not be able to enjoy all areas of the Safari, or all activities, in the same manner as other guests without disabilities (if at all). If Safari determines in its sole discretion that a guest is not able to safely participate in each activity, and we cannot find a reasonable way to accommodate a guest without undue hardship to the Safari, we may prevent such a guest from doing so (without any refund or other compensation). We appreciate your cooperation in this regard.

If you require special accommodation, please contact our Safari at least forty-eight (48) hours in advance, so that we may better prepare for your visit, and try to arrive at an accommodation for you.

Call us at (979) 599-5440 if you have any questions about our park policies or the schedule or attractions. The Aggieland safari park is open year-round.
