Florida is one of the best places in the entire country for travelling animal lovers. Around every corner awaits another world-class zoo, animal reserve, or theme park. Today we’d like to recommend yet another wildlife-themed destination to visit in your West Palm van rental – Lion Country Safari.
Originally founded in 1967, Lion Country Safari brings the African safari experience right here to West Palm Beach. At Lion Country, you’ll be able to see majestic African animals wandering in wide open spaces – a nice change of pace from only being able to see your favorite animals through cage bars.
Here’s a sample of some of the great activities you can enjoy when you take your West Palm van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals to Lion Country Safari.
Drive-Through Safari: As the world’s first drive-through wildlife preserve, Lion Country has been providing high quality, up-close animal experiences since 1967. Split into seven different sections, a drive-through safari at Lion Country will take you on a tour of animals and ecosystems from around the world.
Each section hosts its own selection of exotic animals going about their daily lives, all without cages. Some highlights from the drive-through tour are the chimpanzees, giraffes, and white rhinoceroses of the ‘Hwange National Park’ section. There are, of course, lions (it is called “Lion Country” after all), but they are kept in their own preserve known as the “Gorongosa Reserve.”
SafariWorld: This walk-through safari is a great option for families that want to get out of their West Palm FL minivan rental and stretch their legs for a bit. SafariWorld is full of attractions, such as animal encounters, where visitors get the chance to feed giraffes and free-flying birds. There’s even a carousel and Ferris wheel for the kids.
Seniors (65+): $25.50
Kids (3-9): $21.00
Open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
