This Hidden Destination In Kansas Is A Secret Only Locals Know About
If you are a native Kansan, you may think you know all there is to know about the state and its many attractions… however, I am willing to bet that many of you have never heard of this memorable and hidden destination, which is located in a southern Kansas town of less than 2,000 people.
Welcome to Safari Zoological Park; a small and private zoo (located in the town of Caney) that has been rescuing endangered species since 1989.
What started as a private collection and sanctuary for exotic animals quickly turned into a local phenomenon, as directors Tom and Allie Harvey continuously received phone calls asking for tours of their property.
Today the park is home to more than 100 different species of animals, including big...
...and small cats...
...and other primates.
Those who visit the park are given an extensive 2-hour tour of the grounds, which includes an up close look at all the animals.
Guests even have the opportunity to touch and feed select animals when purchasing a VIP ticket!
The park is licensed by both the United States Department of Agriculture and Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, and was even named Travelocity's Top Insider Spot for Kansas!
