The Park features an African Tram to allow visitors to see animals like elephants, gorillas, giraffes and many others in a free range environment.

Dining choices at the Park include a wide selection of quality food items served at a variety of stands located throughout the Park area. The Park also offers several restaurants offering fares from All American to International.

Guest services provided are wheelchairs, strollers, ATM locations and more.

Parking charges are $7.00 per vehicle for members and $10.00 per vehicle for non-members.

Hours of operation are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the spring and fall and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the summer. The Park is open to the public every day of the year including holidays.
