Out of Africa Wildlife Park
Up close and personal, that's what you'll get when you visit the Out of Africa Wildlife Park. You will hardly believe your eyes when a 600-pound African Lion struts his way past the yellow safari vehicle you're on the edge of your seat in. Out of Africa Wildlife Park started as a research project to see what would happen if wild animals were to co-exist among humans in the animals habitat. What started as a hypothesis turned into a beautiful 104-acre nature preservation that allows humans to interact with exotic animals from around the globe. Be sure to bring your camera because there are over 400 different animals living on the preservation.
This place is cool! Make sure to see the Predator feed! The animals make some of the sweetest noises ever waiting to be fed! If you are a big cat lover this place is heaven!
This place is totally worth checking out! We had a blast!
Thanks Out of Africa for a great day of fun! :)
My family loves going here. The relationship between the people and animals is amazing. I've never seen happier animals anywhere. This is not in Scottsdale anymore though. They are near Sedona (Camp Verde). And they have new bathrooms (see older review).
For those people looking for a zoo experience this is not it! If you want to walk around and just look at animals this isn't for you. Not all the animals are out all the time and they don't have the variety that a large zoo has but the staff is knowledgable, attentive and always friendly. You get very close to many animals and have the opportunity to feed giraffes, lions and tigers. Can't do that at a zoo! If you plan on using a stroller be sure it has decent wheels that lock in the front for stability and don't put too much stuff in it so you can fold it quickly to get onto the busses and trolleys. I only wish this park was closer to the valley so we could go more than a few times a year.
You get more information about the species of animal as well as the personal stories of the animals. You will also get more information about what they have learned from the animals.
The times you have listed for when they are open are INCORRECT. They had just started Oct 1, 2009 to be open 7 Days a week and closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day
Spend your money wisely and go to the zoo. The tiger splash was cool but got long after a while. Even small children were asking to go home.This is DEFINATELY Not worth the trip or the time. Sorry owners!
"Up close" is putting it mildly. My grandsons and their friends were blown away by the experience. I saw some of the best looking animals I've ever seen, "Lazarus" the lion, "Taj" the white sibirian tiger and Boom Boom the 37year old white rhino and many other very well kept and well fed animals. We planned this Sunday trip for weeks and met up with family and friends from around AZ . We all agreed that it was money and time well spent. The only thing we did not like : the bathrooms were under construction and we had to use port a potty's. The park assured us that the bathrooms would be done by the next time we visited. Good, we plan on coming back and telling all our friends to come too.
NEVER have I been to a company that's been in business for 30 years and has port-a-potty's permanently in place. These are the plastic buildings you normally see at outdoor concerts, festivals, etc. This company has NO running water for the public - not even to wash your hands after using the jon. Know too, that it was over 100 degrees when we were there, so the smell.. well, I'm sure I don't need to tell you.
Once that was over, our time there was enjoyable. You can bet, we monitored our water consumption so we wouldn't need to visit the potty again!
All the animals came close to us & interacted with the guides. Most animals in zoos stay aloof & some u cant see at all. They were eager to greet us.
Seeing a tiger in a big tub of water with a lioness lying next to it & watching the tiger wash the lions face was priceless.
Worth the price of admission. After all, they do have some BIG eaters to feed. Everyone at the zoo was friendly & very informative. Go, you wont be sorry.

We went to Africa! Well, the closest thing to it. Me and the chica went to this place known as Out of Afica, where you ride in Mogs (safari trucks), and have a mini serengeti safari.
It was nice being able to pet the Giraffes and see the Tigers, Lions and other wildlife up close.
I felt great about the whole experiance.
