About Safari Niagara
"Safari Niagara's vision is to provide people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to meet animals and birds up close. It is hoped that such interaction with nature will inspire future conservationists and naturalists. In a world where children experience fewer exchanges with nature, Safari Niagara provides an unprecedented opportunity for kids to view, experience and learn about many animal and bird species that share our planet while engaging in a fun and rewarding adventure."
Safari Niagara, a 150-acre, privately-owned and operated nature park, is home to more than 750 animals of native and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds.
Visitors of all ages and abilities can experience the park's inhabitants on their own or through:
- free, educational guided walking tours
- an educational, narrated tram ride/tour
- interactive, educational demonstrations including birds of prey and threatened species presentations
- petting farm yard
- catch-and-release fishing
In addition, visitors can enjoy spending quality time with their families and friends at Safari Niagara by taking part in many activities including ropes course*, bungee*, Safari Rides*, paddle boating, kite-flying and playing at the large playgrounds, sandbox and animal-themed splash pad.
