Although it is expensive, Lion Country Safari is a great place to visit. You drive through the grounds in your personal vehicle and the animals are allowed to run wild. These animals include lions, tapirs, African elephants, various antelope, white rhinos, water buffalo, zebras, chimpanzees and giraffes. Driving through Lion Country Safari is like being on a safari in Africa. At the end of the drive-through portion of Lion Country Safari is a walk-through area called Safari World. Safari World includes a restaurant and gift shop (air conditioned and a welcome refuge on hot summer days), a petting zoo, merry-go-round, boat rides, and bird, reptile, alligator and monkey exhibits. Lion Country Safari is an educational facility, a conservation park and a fun place to enjoy the day.
