I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Lion Country Safari with some friends in Loxahatchee, FL, which is about a 40 minute drive from West Palm Beach. This safari offers both a drive-through and a walk-through tour for an extremely reasonable price. This trip was both visually stunning and educational, although I wish it were a bit cooler when I went. (There is also a water/theme park, but I didn’t get a chance to utilize it).
There were many more animals that I didn’t get a chance to see. If you’re in Florida and looking for a lovely daycation at a reasonable price I would highly recommend coming here. On their website there are pricing options / coupons when purchasing tickets.
Just a small bit of advice when purchasing via the internet: My friend and I both purchased tickets (separately) but for whatever reason, after I purchased mine and printed it out, when she tried to get her ticket and open the PDF file of it, it was just a copy of my ticket. I’m not sure why it did that, but, just in case anyone wants to buy tickets offline, buy them all at once, or use a separate computer (to avoid an annoying glitch).
If anyone wants more information about the animals/safari, etc, feel free to leave a comment! :]
