Out of Africa Wildlife Park
Unlike a zoo this place only has lions and tigers and bears... Make sure you look at the feeding schedule as that is worth the trip. Sometime you can bet tiger cubs!
All animals at this park are rescues. It's quite an amazing place. A bit expensive for entrance fee, but worth the money if you can spare it.
Honestly I have been here more times than I can count & you will never be so close to Lions, Tigers, Bears, Panthers, etc! This is a privately owned zoo & the animals are less than 5ft from you! I would suggest going around feeding time at 11 am each day & don’t miss Tiger splash, it’s worth the…
“Very nice park with easy access from the interstate. The paved trail at the base of the ruins has plenty of information about the ruins and the people who lived here. Be sure to drive to the associated well for a neat experience walking the rim of the well.”
“Western-themed shopping, cowboy shows, dinner theater & chuckwagon chow geared toward families. Live the Arizona Wild West life at a dude & guest ranch on your next trip to the Cottonwood area.”
“Yet another favorite in Old Town...so successful they expanded years ago and built a boutique hotel with private casitas on the street behind them. Great, hearty american fare with LOTS of drink options. Did I mention they have onion rings?”
Point of Interest
“From the moment you step foot on one of their meticulously refurbished train cars, you and your family will be transported to a simpler, more leisurely time away from the distractions and annoyances of our modern world. Breathe deep, order a drink and relax as you glide along on a 4-hour, 20-mile journey through 110 years of history while still enjoying modern creature comforts like climate control, comfortable seating, thoughtful décor and awe-inspired scenery. We highly recommend making reservations well in advance as they are often booked more than a month in advance.”
“This is a great place for dinner or lunch (lunch served on the weekends) Great Food and atmosphere. Wood fired pizza! Definitely try the FUNGHI Pizza (blend of mushrooms and goat cheese) Yum!”
