Lion Country Safari, Florida opened in 1967, in rural Western Palm Beach County. At the time it was the first drive-through safari park in the country and introduced a new concept to animal lovers, “The Cageless Zoo.” The opening generated enormous interest on the part of residents, visitors to South Florida, and the media. The park developed into a popular and successful attraction.
Today, Lion Country Safari is home to over 900 animals in the drive-through preserve and in the Safari World exhibit area. Among the more notable species on display at the park are lions, white rhino, chimpanzees, zebra, and giraffe.
Safari World, the walk-through area of the park, has been developed and improved since the park opened. The restaurant and gift shops were among the earlier additions. The giraffe feeding; Ferris wheel; water sprayground; petting zoo; merry-go-round; boat rides; aviaries; bird, reptile, alligator, and squirrel monkey exhibits added over the years, have greatly enhanced the visitors’ experience at the park.
The lions are fed right before the gates open at 9:30 am. The hoof stock, which includes most of the other animals, are fed at various times throughout the day.
Lion Country Safari offers animal feeding exhibits in “Safari World,” for nominal fees. These include Giraffe Feeding Exhibit, Lory Bird Aviary, Koi Fish Pond, and Petting Zoo. These are the only animals which are available for public feeding, and only the foods purchased at the exhibits are permitted for these animals.
