Service animals are welcome but must be controlled by appropriate leashes, harnesses, or other devices at all times. Guests with service animals should follow the same procedures on the attractions as those outlined for all guests. Safari Niagara employees are not permitted to take control of service animals. Guests whose service animals demonstrate aggressive behaviour towards other guests, our employees or our resident animals will be directed to remove the animal from the park.
A service animal is an animal accompanied by a person with a disability. Service animals will be allowed if it is readily apparent that the animal is used by the person for reasons relating to his or her disability or if the person provides a letter from a physician or nurse confirming that the person requires the animal for reasons relating to the disability.
