Your donations help us grow! Making substantial improvements to our infrastructure requires significant support from our community and visitors. We are so proud of the changes we were able to make over the years thanks to donors, corporate sponsors, visitors and foundation grants. Take a look at some of the most recent capital projects that Wildlife Safari was able to accomplish and the exciting projects we have planned for the future!

Rhino Boma Expansion

With amazing community support, we are working to provide a larger space for mother rhinos and their precious calves. This expansion allows us to bring in a new female rhino and ensures that the bond between mother and baby remains unbreakable until the little one is ready to explore the world beyond and join the thrilling rhino drive thru experience.

The Barnyard

One of the more popular exhibit areas in the walk through Village is the Children’s Zoo (petting zoo). It currently houses rabbits, goats, sheep, a mini horse, a donkey and a pig. The goal is to extend this area to include a contact yard where guests can meet some of our goats and learn about animals you would find on the farm. A farmhouse style kitchen will be included to showcase how our staff prepares diets for the animals. This upgraded kitchen will increase freezer and cooler space allowing us to add more animals to our collection! Educational signage and additional activities will be added for children to connect with animals and this area will remain FREE to the public!

Completed Projects

2023 – Gibbon House

Our new white cheeked gibbon house includes a larger indoor holding space with updated safety features for both keepers and gibbons. It also provides more natural, sturdy climbing structures that will encourage daily exercise.

2022 – Long Neck Lodge

The Long Neck Lodge will expand the ways people can interact with our giraffes and the number of giraffes we can house at the park. Guests are able to feed the giraffes from a viewing deck built on the outside of the barn and from a wheelchair accessible lower patio area designed to give the same feeding options from the ground level.

2020 – Lion Lookout

This addition to the lion area, accessible in the drive through, boasts more space for our pride to grow, as well as additional opportunities for viewing these majestic cats as they bask in the sun atop their new rock feature.

2019 – Holding Barn

This off-exhibit facility is a transitional barn for injured animals, new moms needing extra time with their young, and larger sick animals requiring medical attention from our vet staff.

2018 – Cheryl Ford Center

A beautiful space for indoor camps and educational classes, party rentals, and corporate retreats, this facility connects Wildlife Safari with the community in a variety of ways.
