It is very nice to drive out in the country and yet not that far away and you get to see animals from all over the world and experience being right up close to them, kids love it.

“Fun for everyone -”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

kids will love it....spare the car, take the bus tour! But that's not all -- there are shows, elephant rides and a water park - check out their website and plan to spend the whole day - it's great fun watching the elephants take their daily 'bath' in the lake!

“African Lion Safari”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is a great adventure for young children to see exotic animals in the wild versus zoo. Many times at a zoo they are either in a cage or in an open field hiding over a hill or somewhere where the animal is not visible. African Lion Safari allows you to drive through the area and come right up close to the animals. Warning: The monkeys are crazy and may jump on your vehicle so you have an option take the Safari bus.

“Wonderful animal behaviour ... at "Lion Safari"”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Everyone in your family will enjoy "Lion Safari" - check the website for pricing and activities.
Your family - or - extended family members will love this animal park. It is possibly an hour by car from Hamilton, Ontario. I have taken our kids and grand-kids ( everyone had a great time).
If you have people in wheelchairs or that have difficulty in walking long distances they will be able to see most of the park if they obtain/have assistance getting into the park's buses. There is a restaurant on the property which is sufficient. A lot of visitors prefer to take a picnic basket because you are going to spend at least 3 or 4 hours there .. most families make a day of it.
