African Lion Safari will reopen in 2021 but Americans still can't get over the border to get to the park until through July 21.  With travel across the border to Canada presently restricted (families with close relatives may cross the border into camera but have to stay for two weeks. 


African Lion Safari®, Canada’s Original Safari Adventure™, maintains a collection of over 1,000 exotic birds and animals comprised of over 100 different species.


Our park is comprised of over 750 acres, 250 of which provide animals with large areas of bush, grasslands or forest in which they can interact naturally with other animals as they would in the wild. 25 to 30 acres has been developed for walk through areas and exhibits and the balance of the property is comprised of farm, bush and other habitat, including 40 areas of provincially significant wetland which we maintain and monitor.

2021 information (updated 3/25)


From African Lion Safari on 3/24/21:  "We will pretty much be operating the same as last year, with timed tickets purchased directly from our website in advance of arrival. While we understand that everyone is looking for deals/discounts, we are unfortunately unable to offer further discounts on our prices. Prices on our website will be reflective of the facilities/services we are able to open under the Ontario's Public Health guidelines. We are hoping for a May opening, but at this time do not know the exact date or features available."

The border to the U.S. from Canada (and vice versa) has been closed on a monthly basis since March 2020 and there are no signs of reopening (and no plans as of mid-March 2021) to do so.  Most experts believe the border will remain closed to all but compassionate or essential travel (i.e., no vacationers) until at least the end of the summer or early fall (US Customs official info.).  When the border does reopen, we'll contact our Canadian venues to see if they will extend discounts.  FYI, pricing for prior years is included below.  As soon as we receive the info. on 2021 pricing, you'll find it here and in our NEWSLETTER if you subscribe.
