Safari North Wildlife Park in Brainerd OPENS FOR DRIVE-THRU

Friday, September 4, 2020, 4:00 PM - 1:00 AM


Social Distance with Animals at Safari North Wildlife Park!
Award-Winning Brainerd Park Opens for Drive-Thru Starting Thursday, May 21

WHAT: Safari North Wildlife Park in Brainerd OPENS FOR DRIVE-THRU
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.

While the Vogels maintained a love of their animals, they grew tired of traveling and decided to find a permanent home. Since opening six years ago, Safari Wildlife Park has been named #1 for Best Summer Family Fun in the Brainerd Lakes Area by the Brainerd Dispatch.

Starting on Thursday, May 21, Safari North Wildlife Park will be open for drive-thru visits to see the animals. Admission will be at a reduced rate and though guests will not be able to see all of the animals they will still see a large variety while enjoying a unique offering during a time when many families are looking for safe ways to get out of the house.

“This is not what we wanted but it is what we have to do at this time,” said Kevin and Kelly Vogel in an announcement to their followers on Facebook. “We greatly and most humbly appreciate our guests and hope that you can come out to support us and our family of animals.”

“As a special bonus we are building an additional road which will allow guests to view our NEW African Lions and Jaguar exhibits which were not to be opened until next season,” Kevin adds.
All guests will receive a coupon for 50% off a visit when the park is open entirely. At that time season passes and gift shop items will be an additional 10% off.

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.
