Visitors can also sign-up for special ‘animal encounters.’ Our family delighted in two such programs: the elephant car wash and the bear feeding. The bear feeding was really interesting – the animals are beautiful and any extra time to talk with the animal caretakers is worth the effort.
Folks just traveling through the area could make a quick 2 hour tour of the park, but I would recommend dedicating the whole day so that you can stroll through the Safari Village, ride the train, play on the playground, and participate in the tortoise walk or listen to the Cheetah Keeper Talk.
- Admission allows you to drive through the park twice.
- For the drive; pack water, snacks, and a camera.
- Check the park's daily schedule so you don’t miss a thing.
