Lions, tigers and bears –oh my! Get out your binoculars and safari hat, and take a trip to South Africa without the flight. Just south of Roseburg in the town of Winston is one of the west coast’s top attractions: Wildlife Safari.
Sprawling out on 600 beautiful, hillside acres, Wildlife Safari is much more than a zoo. This unique destination gives visitors an up-close-and-personal drive-through experience with more than 500 free-roaming animals from around the world, including many endangered species.
Dive right into your own National Geographic as animals interact in a natural environment - and interact with you.

The Safari drive through allows visitors to drive their own vehicle and the trip takes about 1-1/2 hours to complete.
The fun doesn’t stop there. Wildlife Safari includes a free walk-about zoo, Safari Village. It features additional animals such as reptiles, birds, Australian Wallaroos, big cats and more. Shows at the Safari Dome, a playground, educational activities, camel rides, train rides and food are also available. There are also a variety of encounters and special experiences with a reservation.
While there is certainly education and entertainment, conservation is the heartbeat of Wildlife Safari. The park has the second most successful cheetah breeding program in the world and ranks number one in the Western Hemisphere. Wildlife Safari has ushered in 214 cheetahs since its opening in 1972.
Wildlife Safari is open 363 days per year. For hours, tickets, encounters, and more – visit wildlifesafari.net.
