You’ll enjoy a drive-through safari then get a little closer to nature in a walk-through adventure park. 

The four-mile drive-through Florida safari gives you access to over 900 free-roaming animals. America’s first wildlife preserve opened in 1967 and is divided into seven specific areas. During your drive you’ll catch a glimpse of giraffe, zebra, rhinos, wildebeests, and of course, lions. Some animals will be within mere inches of your vehicle. Remember, animals have the right-of-way when you're on safari!

Then you’ll go on foot to Safari World Adventure Park for a more hands-on experience. There’s plenty to do here with animal encounters like giraffe feeding, bird feeding, and a petting zoo.

You can also jump on a range of Lion Country Safari rides including a kid’s train, carousel, water sprayground, water slides, and more.

Lion Country Safari facts

The best time to visit the park is when it’s raining as the animals prefer the colder wet weather and are generally more active.

While some people assume there are only lions because of its name; there are 95 different species in the park.
