Up close and personal, that's what you'll get when you visit the Out of Africa Wildlife Park. You will hardly believe your eyes when a 600-pound African Lion struts his way past the yellow safari vehicle you're on the edge of your seat in.

What started as a hypothesis turned into a beautiful 104-acre nature preservation that allows humans to interact with exotic animals from around the globe. Be sure to bring your camera because there are over 400 different animals living on the preservation.
