A wildlife park is the first place most people would go to see a leopard, whereas the second place would be the chainlink enclosure in Donald Sutherland’s backyard. Steer clear of Donald Sutherland with this Groupon.

After cozying into a safari truck outfitted with a canvas top and stadium seating, up to 40 riders are taken on a tour of the 260-acre game reserve. Here, large herds of African animals, such as springboks, water buffalos, and elands roam the sprawling grounds. Experienced tour guides narrate the journey, pointing out a variety of endangered species as well as giving guests the go-ahead to feed the not-so-shy animals that wander up to the truck. Back at the safari lodge, riders can head off to the petting zoo and aviary or recline under a shaded canopy while enjoying the ranch’s views, which echo that of an African landscape. Tours run daily at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.

Safari Wilderness Ranch

Safari Wilderness Ranch's exotic wetland animals freely roam 260 acres of grassy plains, girded by an 850-square-mile watershed. Accredited by the Zoological Association of America and licensed by the USDA, the ranch is an agritourism project dedicated to teaching about endangered species through hands-on safaris. Wandering zebra and watusi cattle herds coexist harmoniously with waterbuck and red lechwe as explorers ride by on as explorers ride by on trucks. There is also a lemur habitat that allows guests to feed the ring-tailed lemurs grapes. Safari Wilderness Ranch was ranked by Fodor's as one of the top 10 safaris in the USA.

Customer Reviews

Very interesting and fun.
John P. · October 13, 2013
It is certainly still a growing wilderness adventure but we were pleasantly surprised at how many animals they have on site. The safari vehicle got up close to many of the animals and we could even feed them from the vehicle. It truly was one of a kind experience. The kids were in absolute heaven and even the adults loved seeing all the animals so close! The ostriches, water buffalo, antelopes, Llamas and deer came right up to the vehicle!

A fantastic birthday outing for me - definitely worth the extras to feed the lemurs and Nelly the nilgai- lots of up close encounters- who knew water buffaloes were so friendly! The little boy on the tour thoroughly enjoyed himself too. Our guides Emily and Jesse are so knowledgeable and the sunset from the treehouse perch topped it all off. Highly recommend for the kid in everyone.
