At 17 euro per adult, 12 per kid, it is quite expensive for what it offers. The safari park is tiny in comparison to the one in Puglia. In the other park with rides, not all rides are free, half of which you would have to pay an extra entrance fee. We came after 4 pm when there was no line at the rides. So it was ok for the kids. But my 5 year old couldn't go on the pirate ship and tube ride, both of which require min height 1.20 m. If you have to wait or have to drive a long time here, I don't see why you should come here. Go to a bigger amusement park.

I've been there twice in 2013 with my three kids (6,4,2) and they really had fun although once it was very crowdy. Food it's pretty expensive and I prefer the safari tour with my private car rather then the expensive train. There are a lot of animals to watch in a "freedom like" condition and after the tour kids can enjoy other attractions. Definitely worth for a visit.

A great day for kids, but an awful day for adults. Too much traffic on the safari trail. The poor animals who have to breathe in the exhaust fumes. There are a few rides for the children, although some are not included in the price. A few years ago most were. This is quite unfair as you can't tell your children not to go on them. So at 17euros per person with the train and the ride comes to about 30 euros a person really! And that is not value for money. I would pay 20 euros and have everything included.

Food outlets vary in quality, some clean and some quite dirty. Toilets were filthy both in the morning and afternoon.

I wouldn't recommend this place even if children had fun. They could have the same amount of fun in a park. 2 years ago, I would have recommended the safari park. However, in this time the place has gone downhill.

Visited the Safari late in July .. just before the August crowds. I went based on brochures I picked up. As it was raining, not many people were around. That was a godsend. The drive through the safari enclosure was leisurely and the size is adequate. A couple of thunderclaps spooked some animals and it was nice to see their natural instincts kick in. Quite an experience for the price. There are additional exhibits outside the safari proper; a decent aquarium, a really nice insect exhibit and a small aviary. Food services were quite good and on the inexpensive side. Plenty of space to sit and grab a bite. Finally, and not to be underrated if travelling with children, there are the free rides. Ok, they may not be Disneyworld material but they are included in the price and some, such as the water shute can be a good buzz especially with kids.
All in all, well worth a visit if you are touring Lago Maggiore or visiting the Milan area.

We stopped here on our way to Lago Maggiore from Milan. The safari park has lots of animals and its safe because there are a good number of guards. The park where children can play is good too, offering a variety of rides and games. The shows are entertaining and the performers are good, especially the parrot and magician shows.
