Lion Country Safari

Lion Country Safari is Florida’s only drive-through safari and walk-through amusement park. Visitors can spend the day with over 1000 animals, and explore fun attractions and entertainment. They can ride aboard the Safari Queen or do their own navigation on our paddleboats, and then cool off in Safari Splash; a water attraction with 23 different features. Visitors can challenge themselves and their friends with mini golf and a maze, or enjoy a presentation in the Animal Theater. Other rides include the carousel, toddler train, and Flying Elephant Ride. Interact with our friendly critters in the Lory Feeding Aviary, Giraffe Feeding Area, and in the Petting Zoo! Discounted field trips are available for groups of all ages.
