Go "On Safari!" and get CLOSER than you ever imagined to over...

Go "On Safari!" and get CLOSER than you ever imagined to over 1,000 exotic birds and animals that roam free in seven large Game Reserves! Your full day of family adventure begins as you set out on a "trek" along 9km of Safari Trail in your own vehicle or aboard a guided, air-conditioned Safari Tour Bus. See a pride of majestic lions, graceful giraffe, a crash of rhino, and many more animals from around the world! After your "safari" through the Game Reserves, set out on a walking tour of the grounds and enjoy exciting bird and animal presentations featuring Parrot Paradise, Birds of Prey Flying Demonstration and Elephant Round-Up. Enjoy the daily Elephant Swim, Pets' Corner, "Nature boy" scenic railway, "African Queen" boat cruise, Discovery Centre and Jungle Playground Areas. Cool off in the newly-expanded Misumu Bay Wet Play interactive water adventure zone where kids can stroll through sprinklers, spouts and stream jets, trek under rain trees and tumble buckets, and interact with gadgets, gizmos and geysers! Open daily from May 7 to October 10, 2016

Monkeys on the car

African lion safari is great to visit at the right time, when we visited the big animals were mostly asleep, and monkeys attacked the car lol.

I was there in a hot summer day. I feel very bad for the animals. There are few trees. Government should stop that.

I visited with my 5 and 7 year olds. The kids had a blast. They love seeing the animals, especially the elephant swim. They also love the massive splash pad that was installed a few years ago. Perfect for those super hot days!

Took my son's family of 5. Gorgeous day. The water park was a big hit. They loved the misters to walk through. Even rode on an elephant.

I recommend going to the tour bus. It's a great place and fun. I think it's about an hour or so. You get to see lions, monkeys, giraffes, and even ostriches! It's a fun trip to go with family and especially when you love animals. Overall, I think you should come to this safari and experience all the great things... More

Lots to see and do, take the tour bus not your own car as animals can damage it. If you do take your vehicle keep the windows closed.
