Description

from Out of Africa Wildlife Park
"Call us wild. Call us crazy. Just don't call us a zoo."

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Mingus Mountains of Camp Verde, Out of Africa Wildlife Park is nestled on over 100 acres of rolling hills and valleys. This setting is home to hundreds of exotic mammals, birds, and reptiles from all over the world. It’s the perfect place to raise the awareness of our exotic neighbors while promoting understanding through in-person contact. It truly is an awe-inspiring adventure blending family bonds with the power and cunning of the wild.

Our park strives to educate and entertain, to provide an exciting and engaging opportunity to love and respect creation and Creator. It is a place where family and friends gather to experience oneness with animals and each other during safaris, tours, walks, observations, and shows of wild-by-nature animals in their own natural splendor. In this way, we hope to achieve a kind of oneness with them, which will cause us to consider them to be so valuable that we cannot allow them to be lost forever. We continually provide natural living spaces for animals in need, so they can become ambassadors of their own kind. We have heeded the call of those without a voice, who now border on extinction.

"Reliable service at a great price."
December 2022
After looking everywhere online for discounted tickets, I found Tripster. I was
little skeptical at first, but I bought the tickets, and was able to save $50 on my purchase. They were accepted at the park without issue, and would recommend them for future purchases.
