Goeie dag! This is the traditional greeting in Afrikaans, the language spoken by over six million people in Africa. Why Afrikaans? To make the announcement that coming spring 2017, Wildwood Wildlife Park will open its long awaited Safari Tram Ride to our guests.
There is nothing like this in the state of Wisconsin!
After making their way through the park to the Giraffe Serengeti Habitat area, our visitors will board a tram and enjoy a guided drive through 168 acres of sprawling woods, open savanna’s, ponds and watering holes of the preserve. The stars of the new exhibit are the exotic and endangered species from various countries including Africa, Asia, Australia, North and South America all of which thrive in an open habitat.
The Safari Tram Ride is but one part of the Wildwood Wildlife Park 10-year master plan, laying out a direction for animal care and visitor experiences. The Safari Tram Ride and the zoo's other renovations and expansions offer our guests the opportunity to get close to animals that are on the endangered and "threatened" lists. Our zoo is a place for our guests to spend time with their families, making memories and watching their children laugh, learn, and play. We are proud that Wildwood Wildlife Park offers a recreational and educational experience for people of all ages.
The photos on this page are just a few of the animals that can be viewed from the comfort of the Safari Tram Ride.
