Are you looking for a fun family adventure that doesn’t require air travel? A day trip to Wild Animal Safari in Pine Mountain is the perfect family outing, with something for everyone to enjoy. There are many ways to take in the sites, from sitting back and letting someone else do the driving, to wandering through the walkabout at your pace.
No matter how you decide to enjoy it, the following tips will help you make the most of your wild animal adventure.
You might want to start your visit by getting out and stretching your legs in the walkabout area, especially if you had a long drive. This section is a more zoo-like setting that allows you to interact with many types of exotic animals. You’ll see everything from Bengal tigers and lemurs to monkeys and alpacas. And since this is a self-guided area, you can take your time and relax. Of course, you can also visit the café and grab a souvenir at the gift shop.
The drive-through area allows you to get face-to-face with amazing wildlife, all from the comfort of your own vehicle. You control the pace as you drive through the 3.5-mile adventure. During the trek, you’ll have the opportunity to see up to 75 different species, including elk, camels, American bison, and giraffe. Many of them will actually walk right up to your window, allowing you to take pictures and make some fun family memories.
The Guided Tour
If you drove to visit our park, you might want to sit back and let someone else take the wheel. Our guided bus tour lets you enjoy the sites, take pictures and relax. You can even purchase feed and treat the animals that come up and say hi! The entire tour takes about an hour, and you’ll get to learn about the animals you encounter with the help of a knowledgeable guide. They’ll be able to identify the animals, give you some fun facts and enrich the experience for your entire family.
The tour doesn’t run all year long, so you’ll want to check the schedules before you plan your trip.
Bring the Gang!
If you have a large family or want to bring your extended family and friends, you can always rent a zebra van. With two sizes available, you can enjoy the sites with up to 15 passengers. You can’t reserve vans, they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don’t worry though, you can always pass time in the walkabout while you wait for a van to be returned. Keep in mind, to rent a van you must be 21 with a valid drivers’ license and an insurance card. Learn more about renting a van on your next wild animal trip.
As you can see, you don’t have to take a lot of time off or go to an exotic location to have an amazing family adventure. Spend the day at Wild Animal Safari and create memories that will last a lifetime. And if you want to plan ahead, you can purchase tickets online and skip the line!
