Zebras, Camels and Emus, Oh My!

Written By: Bre Humphries

Give yourself a little taste of an African safari without ever leaving the state—or even your car—at North Georgia Wildlife Park & Zoo’s Drive-Through Safari. It’s the perfect escape when you’ve been cooped up with your own little “wild animals” for so long! The unique animal encounter offers the chance to view and feed animals such as an ostrich, water buffalo, warthogs and more.

The drive-through safari is $5 per person, with optional add-ons such as the Camel Experience ($10/person), Small Animal Experience ($40/car), and even a Sloth Meet & Greet (pictured: $200/car with two passengers).

The drive-through helps provide much-needed funds for animal care during this challenging season.

Hours of operation are Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 2912 Paradise Valley Road in Cleveland; book online at myfavoritezoo.com.
