Whatever awards won, the ultimate success of Safari Niagara comes with the impact it has on its visitors. It is assumed that over the past seasons of operation at least one person has entered the park unaware of the importance of nature and preserving the environment. It is safe to say that after spending the day at Safari Niagara, that person left the park with a new perspective on the unique relationship he or she has with our planet and how vital it is to respect it completely.
