Safari Tour


Enjoy a one and a half hour guided Safari Wagon tour over 900 acres of beautiful Louisiana countryside complete with 12 ponds and a lake. During the tour you'll come face to face with bison, giraffe, zebra, camels, eland, and much more! The animals roam free - It's Africa, in Louisiana!

How Long is a Giraffe's Tongue?

You'll find out during your tour when you have the opportunity to feed one right from your souvenir feed cup! Adults and children alike experience the excitement of feeding the animals during the safari while remaining safe and secure in our custom-built covered wagons with padded seating. The Global Wildlife Center is unique because we foster a personal interaction with the animals and believe that touch is the best teaching tool. Be prepared for an exhilarating and educational adventure!
