The family adventure to African Safari Wildlife Park turned into a financial bust. We were motoring through the wildlife exhibit and, of course, the multitudes of deer were cute, but when we saw the buffalo and other "big stuff" we were really excited. WORDS OF ADVICE...don't tarry with the big horns. The kids were feeding from the passenger side and I had the driver's side windows closed up. Apparently one of the South African Longhorns didn't like being shut out. He stared in my window for a moment and then, wham ... bashed his horn into the windshield. Sure, they have the "at your own risk" warning, but when you're playing by the rules you should fully expect to be safe.
I filed a report at the Park, however they would not offer to pay for the damage and no one from the Main Office number they referred me to has returned my call.
Think twice before chosing this attraction.

We were a little unsure on making the drive from Cedar Point to Port Clinton, roughly 25 minutes, because we had no way to know if the park would be worth it. We were pleasantly surprised when we got there and would recomend people to take time to explore this park. The cost to enter was fair and that included one free cup of feed, but they did charge extra for carrotts to feed the animals. The admission price let you drive the safari as many times as you wanted and included admission to their walking zoo. All the animals came to the windows of the car and they seemed to know how to be gentle so they do not scratch the car. The worst that they did was slobber on the windows and my steering wheel, but no scratches to the paint. The ones that could have done damage were kept in seperate pens. There were a variety of animals to feed but the highlight was feeding the giraffe through the sunroof of my car. If you go on this trip you definetly need to bring a camera. Take the time to watch some of the shows that they have, the pig races were hysterical and they had a baby animal show where you could pet some of them.

The place is ok but I felt it was way too expensive. I travelled with my spouse and kid and paid $40 for entry. there are a lot of animals mostly deer, llamas and zebras in the safari. the whole safari takes about an hour max.

Not enough wild animals that can come up to your car alot of the same animals. if you feed them while driving through the park you will need to sweep out your car they have a vac there and the animals slober over your windows and it gets dirty so you will have to wash it too no car wash. The park was small , we were pushed through by other vehicles beeping very rude and gift shop was very small alot of travel time and money spent for the little amount of time going through.

This was our third visit to the safari. When we plan a trip to Cedar Point it HAS to include a trip here. It's about a 20 minute drive and worth the trip.

You get to drive through as many times as you want. You get to feed a variety of animals either pellets or carrots. There are deer and alpacas and moose and zebras and buffalo and long horned steers. And all of them will come up to your car. And get drool all over your windows. If you don't get the food off your lap and out the window fast enough, they will come right in and get it themselves!!

This time we got to see a stampede as the buffalo rushed to a tractor bringing lunch to the herds. They were eating out of the back of the tractor while he was still driving.

There is also a walk through park with camel and pony rides for little kids. There is also a pig race which is pretty funny! They have monkeys, a sloth, porcupine, alpacas, kangaroo, a fox and some ducks that eat food right out of your hands. There was also another show, which could use some work. Being the beginning of the season the girls kinda stumbled over what they were saying but it was still neat to get to pet a snake and a baby alpaca and see their cockatoo.

If you love animals, I think you will really enjoy this place.
