It’s a long way from Central Pennsylvania to the dry plains of Africa or the woodlands and forests of Australia, but the incredible safari tour at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park makes those exotic locales feel a lot closer. Now you can introduce your whole family to all kinds of feathered, furry, and funny friends at our wildlife safari zoo. Enjoy up-close-and-personal encounters, learn about the animals’ natural habitats, and soak up fresh air galore.

There are more than 400 animals in the safari fields here at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park, all roaming freely. This changing landscape makes each visit unique. You may find yourself driving by a herd of elk or encountering graceful eland, the largest type of antelope in the world. From flightless birds to the gravity-defying giraffes, our residents are an absolute joy to watch.
Even better, some curious critters will come up for a closer look. Don’t be surprised if an animal approaches the tour bus — if you’re lucky, you might even get to touch one! It’s a phenomenal opportunity for animal lovers of all ages to see animals thriving out in nature, and you’re sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.
