While most of the encounters below are offered daily, booking ahead due to encounters filling up is always recommended. Feel free to call ahead to book or verify your space at 541.679.6761.

Booking more than one encounter? Because some encounters require you to select a date, all of the “Book Yours” buttons below will open that encounter into a new tab. Make your selections or add your numbers to your cart, and then you can exit out of that tab and return to this one to move onto your next encounter. Please arrive at least 15-30 minutes before your encounter. 

Because Wildlife Safari Enrichment Encounters include bused or open-air adventures through the park’s drive-through, regular drive through admission is required when registering for any Enrichment Encounter activity. Get your Drive Through Admissions by clicking here.

Wildlife Safari is making enrichment encounter registration a breeze by providing virtual tickets! While you should receive a receipt and order confirmation, no physical tickets will be sent. Simply check in at Guest Services using the name you purchased tickets under or the order confirmation number in your email! Questions or concerns? Contact Guest Services at 541.679.6761.
