Good Afternoon, My son, daughter and I were just to Safari North for the first time. It was a celebration day for us--his adoption day! WOW! I don't think I stopped smiling!. With my son's disabilities we find most places to be extremely overwhelming for him. HE WAS IN HEAVEN!!!. And I was able to relax!. We arrived just as you opened. My son is an extreme animal lover and finds the interactions with animals so calming. He loved riding Nick the Camel. Feeding Puzzles Carrots even getting a kiss or two from Puzzles. The parakeet enclosure saw him very calm. The variety of sensory experiences are absolutely incredible.

My daughter is a softball player and loved seeing all the different animals that had softballs to play with. Hearing the donkey braying and Even being chased by 3 tom turkeys had us all laughing. The staff was awesome as so welcoming as well. I am so glad you are here. All the animals looked healthy and happy. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR A GREAT DAY!!!
