Go on Safari! In Georgia?

Picture of a Sign: Do not feed anything other than park foodAt the Wild Animal Safari in Pine Mountain, GA they sell slobber towels with good reason. The animals know that there’s food in them thar cars and they come INSIDE to get it!

Here’s the skinny: you wander around (by-foot) a zoo-like experience with reptiles and miscellaneous animals while you wait for your turn to drive through the “safari.” If you go on Labor Day weekend you’ll be waiting a while. So be patient, young jedi.

You have the choice of driving your own car through the route or renting one of theirs. I cannot express firmly enough that you must rent their car. As mentioned above, the animals come not just close to your car, but in it! Why? Because you have treats. Think of yourself like the Ice Cream Man of the safari/zoo and everyone comes running.

You wander curving roads of Georgia’s red clay and observe animals in their semi-natural habitat. It is hot in the South. Same as Africa? I don’t know such things. Some of the animals are amazing, many are funny in their behavior, and the experience will surely be one of delight (I had never had a bull eat from my hand before), goo (see “delight”), and lots of laughter.

Have been on a real safari? (how do you think it compares?) Have you had a wild animal eat from your hands (even if that wild animal had been tamed by thousands of tourists before you)?
