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.
African Lion Safari® is extremely
proud of the international reputation it has earned for excellence
in the care, management and breeding of many endangered species,
both birds and animals. African Lion Safari® strives to ensure that
all guests have an enjoyable and educational day “On Safari! ™” as
well as an opportunity to gain a better appreciation of the animals
in our care. Plan to visit us soon!

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
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.
