Get Ready For A Wild Time
On our last road trip through Ohio we stopped at the African Safari Wildlife Park the “Midwest’s largest and best drive-thru safari”. This was a mom pick and I wasn’t disappointed.
You’ll see Bison, Llama, Alpaca, Giraffe, Zebra and a variety of Deer during the Drive-Thru Safari. You can hand-feed these animals and most of them will come right up to your car. You’ll have to watch the Zebra’s from a distance, however, as they’re rather shy and didn’t come up to any of the vehicles. Leave the windows rolled up if you aren’t going to feed them or don’t want them sticking their head inside your vehicle. I highly suggest you purchase carrots and save some for the end because the Giraffe’s are near the exit. They will bring their long neck right down to your level and take them from your hand.
The Walk-Thru Safari has a variety of animals as well including a Red River Hog, White-Handed Gibbons and the rare White Alligator. Did you know there’s over 2 million Alligator’s in the United States and of those only approximately 40 are White Alligators?
You pay admission per person and that admission includes the Drive-Thru & Walk-Thru, Camel rides, Pig races and Educational Animal Shows. Carrots and animal feed are extra.
Check out the video below to see our up-close and personal encounter with a buffalo. He slobbered all over our hands and car. A word to the wise: you might want to hit up the car wash on the way out!
The African Safari Wildlife Park is located in Port Clinton Ohio which is only 15 minutes from Cedar Point!
