New cub on exhibit
It is a festive time to visit the Safari Park with decorative red bows throughout the park.  A week day during the holiday season is a good time to go there with fewer visitors. 
Marie is standing with Ray and Betsy at the entrance to the Tiger Trail which opened in 2014 for the Sumatran tigers.  There are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers in the wild.


A large lagoon in the Congo fishing village is home to numerous species of waterfowl. A white pelican is see here.

The park houses a large array of wind and endangered animals including species from the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America and Australia.  The Park is in a semi-arid environment with free-range enclosures that house such animals as antelope, giraffe, buffalo, cranes and rhinoceros. 
Giraffes and rhinoceros are in this African exhibit.  The park has the world’s most successful breeding program for southern white rhinos.

The open range East Africa exhibit  has a large lagoon with lesser and greater flamingos and other waterfowl.

The gorilla habitat houses a troop of lowland gorillas
