Description

from Out of Africa Wildlife Park
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.

Frequently Asked Questions about Out of Africa Wildlife Park

What kind of animals will I see at Out of Africa Wildlife Park?

In addition to the nearly 40 exotic big cats including lions, tigers, leopards, jaguar, and cougars, Out of Africa Wildlife Park is composed of hundreds of mammals, birds, and reptiles representing the incredible biological diversity of forests, jungles, and plains of the world, including Africa and many other continents. The experience includes a bush safari tour showcasing herd-style animals from the plains and savannas of Africa and Asia where you’ll observe free-roaming giraffes, antelopes, zebras, ostriches, water buffalo, gemsboks, elands, and many more. The preserve was designed to give the animals the ability to interact and roam about freely as they do in the wild. Some of the animals that live at the park are classified as threatened or near threatened, meaning they are in danger of being placed in the “threatened” category in the future. You will find a current Species List of all our animals here. Out of Africa offers an experience steeped in entertainment, education, and conservation, dedicated to raising an awareness of God’s creatures and promoting an understanding through in-person contact.


Can I pet any of the animals?

Yes, there will be plenty of opportunities to pet the more docile members of the animal kingdom at the Park. For example, on our safaris you’ll usually be able to feed and pet giraffe! The Pet-N-Feed features gentle, friendly creatures that are fun and safe to interact with. You’ll also have an opportunity to safely pet giant pythons, anacondas, and more at the Giant Snake show. There is even a good chance of touching a participating animal during the Creature Feature show, depending on animal mannerism and availability. For the animals that cannot be touched, you’ll be surprised at just how close you do get.


Are pets or service dogs allowed inside the park?

Free roaming animals and free flight birds of prey may be present at Out of Africa Wildlife Park. Furthermore, keepers are frequently in with big cats that are wild by nature.

For the safety of your animals, our guests, and our staff who work with wild animals directly, we do not allow pets and service animals inside the park.

We discourage guests from bringing pets and leaving them in parked vehicles. Distressed pets will be removed from vehicles if deemed necessary for the safety of the animal.
