Adventure Awaits At This Drive-Thru Safari Park In Arizona
We all know about the ostrich ranch in Picacho, but it isn’t Arizona’s only opportunity to see exotic animals. Out of Africa Wildlife Park is another such place, and it’s full of majestic creatures you’ve likely never seen in person. This incredible attraction promises to be a fun-filled day for the entire family – see for yourself:
Summertime means spending every second possible outside, going on trips and soaking up the sunshine. At Out of Africa Wildlife Park, you can travel across the world without ever leaving Arizona.
Included with each general admission ticket is a 30-minute, narrated safari tour of Arizona's very own African Savannah. Some of the world's most exotic creatures roam freely, as if in their natural habitat.
All the animals are very accustomed to being around people, so you have nothing to fear. Treats are provided by the park to each visitor, and there's a good chance several hungry mouths will come searching for them.
You can expect to receive a few sloppy kisses along the journey — especially on the VIP tour, a behind-the-scenes excursion leading to areas of the park not typically open to the public. Three hours long, the adventure takes place on a special all-terrain vehicle, allowing participants to interact more intimately with the majestic beasts.
Each afternoon at 1:15, the tigers are released from their cages to splash around in a large pool. Trained handlers will throw colorful toys to the gentle giants in an effort to bring out their playful feline nature. Afterwards, you'll even get an opportunity to feed them (through the fence, of course, but still an amazing experience)!
Other attractions include interactive animal encounters and a zip line soaring over their enclosures. Consider a bundle package with multiple activities to keep the fun going all day long.
Address: 3505 West State Route 260, Camp Verde, AZ, 86322. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
