How would you like see a drive through safari park?  Lion Country Safari is a wildlife preserve and walk-through Amusement Park located on over 600 acres in Loxahatchee, Palm Beach County.  The zoo was founded in 1967. Lion Country claims to be the first "cage less zoo" in the United States. 

Bring the entire family and spend the entire day on safari with over 900 animals. Look at the animal displays and encounters or animal feeding experiences.  If you'd like to cool down, venture into the water spray grounds, grab a snack and ice-cold beverage. Then head over to the gift shop and pick up a souvenir of your safari journey. 

Marcella Leone, the founder and director of Leo Zoological Conservation Center in Greenwich, Connecticut, approached the park about a plausible purchase.  The safari preserve expects to complete the sale the third quarter of the year. Terms of the sale have not been released. If the sale goes through, the new owner is looking to expand the park’s conservation and education programs, as well bringing in new species

Lion Country Safari was recently ranked as one of the 10 Best Savanna Exhibits in world by Zoo Nation. The free roaming preserve ranked within the top 10 along with the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, San Diego, California and the Harambe Wildlife Preserve at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.

It would be difficult not to have a memorable experience at Lion Country Safari with giraffes, rhinos, lions, ostrich and gazelles roaming freely along the 5-mile trail to drive through. For more information please visit Lion Country Safari.
