Founded in 2014, Safari North Wildlife Park is the creation of Kevin Vogel and his wife Kelly. Together the two have more than 50 years of combined experience in the field of exotic animals. Prior to opening the park, the couple spent 20 years traveling the Midwest with their petting zoos, camel rides, pony rides, pig races, and wildlife educational shows. Safari Wildlife Park has been named #1 for Best Summer Family Fun in the Brainerd Lakes Area by the Brainerd Dispatch.

The mission of Safari North Wildlife Park is to promote life-long learning, conservation and preservation through safe, affordable, and memorable experiences with animals of all types. The park specializes in up close and personal experiences with the animals as well as important information about every animal including its history, care and the conservation needed to keep it thriving.

“Our dedication to our animals is second to none and we are very proud of the care they receive,” says Kevin Vogel, Owner. “We see families come back year after year because of the experience we provide them and the animals. We love spreading our vast knowledge of these animals so we can all appreciate their place and importance in our ecosystem.”

Safari North features Animals from North America, Asia, Africa, South America, Europe and Australia. Guests can also feed the giraffes, ride camels and mine for gemstones! Here is just a sampling of other species at the park: Black and Grizzly Bears, Sloth Bears, Tigers, Kangaroos, Leopards, Cougars, Bobcats, Alligators (more than 30), Lynx, Lemurs, Monkeys (Spider, Howler, Olive baboon, Java, Vervet, Ringtail Lemurs, Ruff Lemur Capuchins, Mandrills, Patas), Otters, Zebras, Porcupines, Wart Hogs, Hyenas and Barnyard Petting Zoo animals.

NEW this summer: come see our snow leopard!

It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List because the global population is estimated to number less than 10,000 mature individuals and is expected to decline about 10% by 2040.
