The goal was started by a Turkey Creek Hunting Club in 1988, with the purchase of enough acres to create a safari-like experience. A creative idea was brainstormed by Mr. Snider to reach out to hunters, outfitters, and consultants and with their efforts, they conceived the park and decided which animals would best suit their project.
THE LOVE OF ANIMALS
The purpose of Wild Animal Safari was to create a fascination, relatively priced, permitting the suitable care of animals and grounds. At the same time remaining affordable to young families. Mr. Snider aim, and personal interest was reaching 3-to-12-year-olds to help them gain a lasting love of animals and nature. Victory, from the very start, the first year, The Wild Animal attractions continued its rise in enthusiast year after year. In 2005, the Park was purchased by Parks America. Let’s just say after securing their ownership, they upgraded the grounds and acquired new animals and were driven to create the best experience for their guest.
Most family thrive on creating a lifetime of memories for their children and loved ones. Who doesn’t want their children to experience animals up close and personal? It’s one of the ultimate experiences ever. To have a Safari positioned right in the confines of your state, is a dream come true for many. Just imagine your children seeing a giraffe right in their face! You have become the coolest parents alive! We’re not talking about a photo we are talking about up front and in real life.
Drive through with your vehicle. Get comfortable and prepare yourself for 3.5 miles of driving, Ooooh, Look! and Awwwww, experiencing hundreds of animals. Animals are known to walk right up to your vehicle to say hello! You can come face to face with a zebra or feed an American Bison from your hand. With your eyes you will see hundreds of animals running free. 75 species of animals and over 450 of them on 300 acres!
