PLEASE ABIDE BY CDC RECOMMENDATIONS OF SOCIAL DISTANCING & WEARING MASKS

WE'RE EXCITED TO SAFARI... SAFELY!

Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit. The CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from Coronavirus. Guests should evaluate their own risk in determining whether to attend. People who show no symptoms can spread Coronavirus if they are infected, any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to Coronavirus. By coming to the park, you acknowledge and agree that you assume these inherent risks associated with attendance.

We ask for all visitors to abide by CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19; including but not limited to wearing masks. We also ask all visitors to keep a safe distance (six feet) between them and other groups while visiting the Safari Camp Grill, the Safari Trading Post, and Safari Sweet Spot; including restroom facilities. The Walk-A-Bout portion of the Ranch is an open-air environment. However, we ask visitors to practice social distancing in the Walk-A-Bout as well. We are monitoring the amount of people in the Safari Camp Grill, the Safari Trading Post, and Safari Sweet Spot buildings at all times, and we are taking extra sanitization measures.

It is always our priority to care for our animals to the best of our ability. For the time being, we are relying solely on our animal care staff to feed our animals. This is for our animals' safety as we know animals can contract COVID-19 from humans. Instead of a bag of animal feed, each car will be given one complimentary Adventure Guidebook. (Additional Guidebooks are available for $3.50 purchase.) Again, visitors are not permitted to feed the animals at this time. Please do not bring outside food for the animals as their diets are specially formulated specific species nutrition.

It is always our priority to care for our animals to the best of our ability. For the time being, the Petting Barnyard will remain closed. This is for our animals' safety as we know animals can contract COVID-19 from humans. The Petting Barnyard presents a close contact environment. Therefore, we believe the responsible action is to keep it closed. The Walk-A-Bout portion of the Ranch is still open; only the Petting Barnyard is closed. We hope you will still take advantage of free parking to visit our Giraffes, primates and other species in the open-air environment of the Walk-A-Bout area if you feel comfortable doing so.

Per our usual operations: 

  • Admission sold at entrance, online options not available. 

  • Reservations NOT required for entrance.

Further Explanation of Animal Care During Precautions during  COVID-19

 

We love animals, but for the safety of your animal and ours, OUTSIDE ANIMALS INCLUDING PETS AND SERVICE ANIMALS ARE NOT ALLOWED. "At a zoo, service animals can be restricted from areas where the animals on display are the natural prey or natural predators of dogs, where the presence of a dog would be disruptive, causing the displayed animals to behave aggressively or become agitated."
