African Safari Wildlife Park

Midwest's only Drive-Thru Safari offering a unique up-close family experience. Now Open Daily! 10-5

African Safari Wildlife Park covers more than 80 acres and includes animals from Asia, Africa, North and South America in a large roaming preserve.

Here guests and their families can travel through the preserve of roaming animals in the comfort and privacy of their own vehicle.  During the tour, guests see hundreds of animals living together. Feed the  Elk, Bison, Giraffe, Zebra, Deer, Alpaca, and Camel from the cup of food provided by the park.  Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture memories! Each spring we have many new arrivals. So keep your eye out for hiding babies.  We also offer a Walk-Thru area, where there are many animals on exhibit.

African Safari Wildlife Park will be celebrating its 50+ WILD Season in 2022. We are looking forward to celebrating our 2022 Season with new experiences for guests and welcoming our friends and fans back for another incredible year. Extended Weekends (open 9-6) offer Park visitors the opportunity to experience all that African Safari Wildlife Park has to offer (Weather Permitting) including EdZOOcational Animal Programs, the HogWILD Experience, Camel Rides, Aviary Adventure, and the Walk-Thru Safari featuing the exclusive animal feedings offered in the Zoo-It-All Pass: Kangaroo, Porcupine, Rabbit, and Tortoise Feeding.

Several projects are now underway at The Ohio Safari Park, including an addition of 22 acres to the Park’s Drive-Thru Safari, the largest area of African Safari where guests drive their own car through and interact with hundreds of exotic animals. African Safari’s Walk-Thru Safari, the Park’s traditional zoo setting, will also see an addition of several new animal exhibits and animal holding buildings for the 2022 Season.
