Lions and tigers and bears, oh my. And zebras and giraffes and wildebeests, oh yes. That’s what you’ll encounter at this sprawling wildlife park between Camp Verde and Cottonwood. The park includes both a “wildlife preserve” of large fenced predator enclosures, home to numerous lions, tigers, wolves, panthers, and hyenas, and an “African Bush Safari” area, where you ride on a rugged safari vehicle through a vast enclosure populated by giraffes, zebras, ostriches, wildebeests, and other African animals. You may even get to feed a giraffe or zebra. The carnivores are fed on Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday at 3pm, and following the feeders is one of the highlights of a visit to the park. One of the park’s most popular attractions, especially with kids, is the Tiger Splash, in which big cats and their caretakers demonstrate predator-prey interactions in a large pool.
