Take the whole family to Safari Niagara!
If you are looking for a great Niagara Falls attraction to take the whole family, Safari Niagara has something for the whole family to enjoy! Located just a 10 minute drive from Niagara Falls itself, Stevensville is a town rich in rural beauty. Black Creek runs through the area which is often used by kayaks and canoes with a perfect spot to launch a boat…and within this stretch of countryside sits Safari Niagara at 2821 Stevensville Rd. Safari Niagara, formerly known as Zooz, is a 150-acre nature park with over 750 animal, bird and reptile species. It’s the ultimate Summer fun destination open from June 1 – Labour Day. The park is completely interactive with educational animal presentations, guided tours, animal feedings and a petting farm.
New this year is that admission is all inclusive, which means you gain access not only to the entrance fee, but also unlimited use of the rope course, bungee, safari rides, splash pad, fishing, kite flying, paddle boats and more! There’s also playgrounds for the little ones to enjoy, a restaurant on site and a gift shop. Season memberships are available for purchase at the park admissions booth or by calling 905-382-9669.
New to 2013 is the White Rhinoceros Exhibit, an Interactive Reptile Exhibit and a Free Flight Budgie Experience…and one of the most beautiful exotic animals has just arrived — the White Lions!
There are four white lions, two males and two females. The white lions range from 5 to 7 months old and were captive born from a facility in South Africa, which they will now be a permanent fixture at Safari Niagara.
White lions are extremely rare and have not been seen in the wild in more than 15 years. These are Niagara Falls’ first and ONLY lions. They reign from the Timbavati region of South Africa. Their white disposition is the result of a recessive gene known as a color inhibitor specific to their native region.
“We are committed to the conservation of endangered lions. We strive to educate our guests on the importance of conservation, as it is key to the survival of many species” said General Manager Tim Tykolis.
In addition to the lions, there are many more wide variety of animals from Elks and Flamingos to Tigers and Giraffes! Click here to see an alphabetical list of animals featured.
Safari Niagara is currently holding a naming contest for the four lions on their Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/SafariNiagara and directly at Safari Niagara until June 9th, 2013. The winners will be presented with 2-day passes to the park! Season memberships are available for purchase at the park admissions booth or by calling 905-382-9669.
