If you are from a big city like we are this type of zoo is so rare.
You will see animals you do not see in zoos and some probably you have never seen.
African Safari Wildlife Park Port Clinton
Aside from the drive thru feedings, there is a small zoo including warthogs, birds, monkeys, and kangaroo.
African Safari is certified by Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), so you can expect appropriate standards for safety and treatment of animals.
