The best time to see the animals is when it is raining. The animals generally love the cooler, wet weather and tend to be more active during this time. If you are not interested in visiting the park during the rain, then we advise you to arrive early any day. Early morning is the second best time to visit as it tends to be a bit cooler and the animals are usually more active then.

Our facility is handicap accessible. In the drive-through section, you will be in your own vehicle, or in one of our rental vans (if you choose to rent). The walk-through area is either concrete walkways or boardwalks. There are no stairs. Access to our picnic area may involve going over a short grassy area. The petting zoo is served by ramps which are accessible by wheelchair; however, there is a double gate system to keep the animals in, which would require some assistance to the wheelchair person. Also the floor (surface) of the petting zoo is compacted dirt. If we have had rain, the surface softens up and it may be difficult for a wheelchair to maneuver. The animals in the petting zoo sometimes get excited and raise their front legs up onto people.
Adjacent to Lion Country Safari is an award-winning KOA campground where you can awake to the sounds of roaring lions. For information call (561) 793-9797 or reservations at (800) 562-9115. If you’re not looking for this adventurous of a stay, click here for a list of local hotels.

Service animals specifically trained to aid a person with a disability are welcome. Please stop into the main office upon arrival so we may alert our wildlife team and walk through staff of a service animal entering the park. While Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA.
Service animals may not enter interactive exhibits including Lories, budgies or petting zoo. These species view dogs as a predator and may become extremely distressed in the presence of a dog.
No, we do not allow pets into the park. We have free kennels (with a refundable $5.00 deposit) available for your use. Please stop in at the office before you go through the ticket booth. We do not know how your pet may react to our animals and how our animals may react to your pet.
