“Great but not over the top”

Harmony Park Safari
Ranked #4 of 69 things to do in Huntsville
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

Wonderful place good vibe. Average animals. Price is 8 per person and comparing that with a movie this was over within 20-30 minutes so the price is average as far as ratings go.

We had a great time but I just want to be fair and say you won't be over the top impressed, but for what they are offering they do a great job. No one else has something like this around here so it's cool. We liked the drive there that was very pretty.

More variety of animals could be helpful.

I called repeatedly to see if we could take an RV, and no one ever answered or returned calls. We drove an hour out of the way to be turned away.

I love this place! Be prepared to drive out into the country a little, but that's expected as there are animals of all kinds out there! They walk right up to the car and will eat out of the cups of food provided. Bring a little extra money to buy a lot of food for the animals. Feeding them really enhances the experience! Don't take your favorite car as some of these animals have horns and antlers! A great time for any age!

Harmony Park Safari was certainly an unexpected gem in the middle of nowhere. The GPS took my fiance and I through at least 30 miles of Alabama back-country to arrive at a small but delightful "wilderness safari". Overall the price we paid was extremely reasonable and we had the most memorable time. We were able to feed animals from inside the car and got up-close and personal with animals you can only strain to see in zoos. I was able to pet a zebra! We had the best time and haven't laughed so much in ages. We had a run-in with an aggressive emu that we'll likely never forget. The place as a whole is very local, very do-it-yourself but overall is quite obviously cared for by people who truly love what they do. The animals seem very happy cohabitating in a shared environment. This is one experience that is well worth the drive to find!
For families with children make a note that the only bathrooms available is literally a wooden outhouse with a moon painted on the front.

This is a neat little place to check out some day. You drive through the park and can see all the animals, then get out at the end to see the reptiles, turtles and more close up. They want the purchased food and will come (literally) in your window, so be careful. You can take as long as you want to drive through and can go around again if you desire. They desperately need your donations so be generous.
