Choose Between Two Options
- $250 for a private elephant-waterhole tour with wine for four ($400 value)
Visitors trek through an underground tunnel until they reach the elephant-waterhole cave. There they can view the elephants splashing in waterhole through a thundering waterfall and possibly pet the animals. Tour-goers also enjoy a glass of wine and snacks on the observation deck (water is available for the underaged and non-drinkers), and they take home a commemorative pin and wineglass.
- $150 for entry for two to the Elebubbles elephant-bath encounter ($300 value)
During the Elebubbles elephant bathtime experience, visitors are grouped with elephants. They can hose down and scrub the elephants while observing their behavior up close. At the end of the bath, visitors take photos with the elephants and feed them healthy snacks.
The 600-acre park plays host to visitors who drive through the more than four miles of winding grounds to catch up-close glimpses of its inhabitants—over 550 wild animals from Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Bison, zebras, and giraffes roam the wide-open surroundings, living in harmony with tigers, lions, and bears. Founded by Frank Hart in 1972, the park has helped to protect endangered species while educating the public about them and their important roles in the fragile ecosystem. Visitors can make arrangements for private and personalized animal encounters as well as visit the safari village zoo, botanical gardens, and gift shop.
