African Safari Huts

 

We have brought an authentic African Village to Oklahoma . Staying on the cutting edge of leisure getaways, the Tiger Safari Zoological Park developed the Shi-Awela Safari village, Shi-Awela meaning “a peaceful place of rest”.

This secluded African safari village will include two authentic African bush huts circling a small lagoon, authentic African-style landscaping with thorn trees, and natural veldt (long grass). Inside the African Hut, you are surrounded by authentic African decor.

I had my daughter's 3rd Birthday Party in the Kadani room, and it was great. The room was decorated beautifully, the lodge had it's own privates space and restrooms, and was perfect for any type of get together. It turned cold, so the owner was gracious enough to bring in a few extra animals vs. getting the little ones out... More

I had so much fun visiting with my family! The staff was very sweet! I was so excited to take pictures with all the animals! Seeing the baby tiger was probably the highlight of my trip!

Amazing place to interact with animals. Never in my life would I have thought of playing and feeding a baby tiger. The animals are very well taken care of and the staff is so nice and willing to educate you. Can't wait to go back next summer to swim with the otters. - Hector

When I was looking TA for a fun day out with the kids I happened to find this place. I was really worried about what it would be like, would we see sad animals or a poor facility? Turns out we found this beautiful animal oasis. These animals are very active, look to be in great health, and actually come... More

This was our second visit to the Tiger Safari. Both times, we have elected to do he "self guided" tour of the facilities. We like to do it this way because it allows us to take as much time as we want at the various exhibits. The staff at both visits were very informative and friendly. Both times we visited,... More

We had the best time there today. We had children with us ranging in ages from 8 to 19 and everyone including the adults had a great time. The animals were very interactive. We loved feeding the monkeys. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. If you have a free afternoon, this is the perfect way to spend it.
