Wildlife Safari in Oregon is the closest adventure you will find to an African Safari! From the safety of your vehicle you will begin an unforgettable 4.5 mile expedition through this unique 600 acre drive thru animal park. With hundreds of animals from Africa, Asia, and the Americas, visitors get the rare opportunity to see animals interacting with each other the way they would in the wild. Our collection features over 100 species including tigers, giraffes, zebras, lions, elephants, bison, cheetah, elk and bears as well as many other endangered species.
Wildlife Safari began as the vision and dream of Frank Hart. His goal was to create a wildlife park in the Pacific Northwest that would help save rare and endangered species from around the world. Wildlife Safari is now run as a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization and currently hosts over 170,000 visitors per year. Wildlife Safari is located five minutes off of the I-5 Corridor in Winston, Oregon and is open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Endangered species breeding programs are a priority at Wildlife Safari and are ever expanding. Right from the beginning Wildlife Safari’s cheetah breeding program has been enormously successful and is internationally recognized. Since the park opened in 1973, over 180 cubs have been born, making the park one of the leading cheetah breeding facilities in the Western Hemisphere. Visit the free Safari Village, a zoological garden of discoveries with over 200 animals including; cougars, primates, reptiles, insects, and a large variety of birds. Also featured are animal keeper talks and a children’s petting zoo and playground.
Wildlife Safari is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Along with the Oregon Zoo & the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Wildlife Safari is one of only three organizations in Oregon to hold AZA accreditation.
