Big Joel’s Safari Petting Zoo & Educational Park

See Photo Location

At Big Joel’s Safari, we offer an up close and personal experience with animals of all types from mild to wild. Not all are available for touching/feeding but have you ever been just feet away from an alligator or lemur?

In addition to our more than 500 animal residents from well over 60 species (and growing), these are some of our other fun attractions here at the Safari…like camel and pony rides and lots of babies.

Big Joel’s Safari Petting Zoo and Educational Park is more than just your average petting zoo. Come experience the “Zoo made for you”!
