Go "On Safari!" and get CLOSER than you ever imagined to over 1,000 exotic birds and animals that roam free in seven large Game Reserves! Your full day of family adventure begins as you set out on a "trek" along 9km of Safari Trail in your own vehicle or aboard a guided, air-conditioned Safari Tour Bus. See a pride of majestic lions, graceful giraffe, a crash of rhino, and many more animals from around the world! After your safari through the Game Reserves, set out on a walking tour of the grounds and enjoy exciting bird and animal presentations featuring Parrot Paradise, Birds of Prey Flying Demonstration and Elephants & Friends. Enjoy the twice daily Elephant Swim, Pets' Corner, "Nature boy" Scenic Railway, "African Queen" Boat Cruise, Discovery Centre and Jungle Playground Areas. Cool off in the newly-expanded Misumu Bay Wet Play interactive water adventure zone where kids can stroll through sprinklers, spouts and stream jets, trek under rain trees and tumble buckets, and interact with gadgets, gizmos and geysers! African Lion Safari is open daily from May 6 to October 9, 2017

My young daughter tried the pony ride - paid $6 for the 1 minute ride. Too short to charge people $6.
