The dry plains of Africa and the woodlands and forests of Australia have never felt closer thanks to the incredible safari tour at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. Like our other amazing attractions, the safari allows you and your family to see first-hand the various animals native to those lands and learn about their natural habitats. Discover more about our animal safari in Central Pennsylvania and all you can expect to see on your journey.
Guests who wish to enjoy our safari tour from the comfort of their vehicles can do so with our self-drive-thru option. Those interested in this experience should first read the Drive-Thru Rules to ensure their safety and the wellbeing of our animals. We also advise guests to print out and sign our Drive-Thru Waiver for quicker access through the gate.
The Drive-Thru Safari pre-season/post-season option is available on select weekends only in April and November, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The cost of admission is $8 per person for all ages three and older.
Please note: Only the Safari Tour Fields are open for the Drive-Thru option. Zoo exhibits are open from May 1st through October during the regular season.
One of the best parts about our safari zoo in Pennsylvania is all the different animals you may see. More than 400 animals roam the safari fields freely at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. You may meet curious critters that are just interested in you as you are in them — it is common for animals to approach the tour bus and get close enough for guests to reach out and touch them. Interacting with these animals is sure to be an unforgettable and highly beneficial experience for your party.
Dedicated to providing our guests with the best possible experience, we are happy to introduce our safari station. Built and launched in 2015, the safari station includes the following:
To help guests get the most out of their animal safari in Pennsylvania, we encourage all to be mindful of when the tours begin. Rides go out right when the park opens, and guests are welcome to come early to avoid crowds or waiting in long lines. Our tours last around 45 minutes, providing plenty of time to take in the entire tour without tiring out the youngest in your group. The last tour departs Safari Station one hour before closing.
Please be advised that we do not accept reservations for our tours as they are offered on a first come, first serve basis. However, even if you miss your preferred time, another is coming up shortly!
