The Wagon Ride Through Lazy 5 Ranch, An Interactive Safari In North Carolina, Is A Fun Adventure

From an educational lemur center in Raleigh to witnessing the magic of the wild Mustangs in the Outer Banks, to oh-so many more fun encounters available, you’re sure to love them all. One of the best, however, is the drive-through safari located just outside of Charlotte, where you can drive your own vehicle through this North Carolina serengeti, or… take a fun-filled, open-air wagon ride!
