This summer, African Safari Wildlife Park is going back to the Jurassic. More than 20 moving, roaring, life-sized prehistoric creatures will be on display throughout the Park’s Walk-Thru Safari as part of Dinosaur Takeover.
Familiar favorites like T. rex, Triceratops and Stegosaurus will be on display alongside lesser-known — but equally fascinating — dinosaurs such as the lumbering Lufengosaurus and cunning Australovenator.
Dinosaur Takeover, which is included with general Park admission, will begin in June and run through Monday, Sept. 4. More information is available at www.africansafariwildlifepark.com/dinosaurs
In addition to viewing these animatronic beasts, Park guests will have the opportunity to pose for photographs in oversized dinosaur eggs or the jaws of a T. rex; mine for real dinosaur fossils to take home (for an additional fee); discover how these animals hunted, survived and cared for their young in a prehistoric world; and learn how to protect today’s wildlife from the threat of extinction.
“Dinosaurs have a universal, enduring appeal that inspires wonderment in all of us,” said Kelsey Keller, the Park’s director. “Whether you’re one or 100, Dinosaur Takeover is not to be missed!
African Safari Wildlife Park has been delighting families for over 50 years. The free-range Drive-Thru Safari features giraffe, bison, alpacas and deer. The Walk-Thru Safari, open seasonally, features kangaroos, porcupines, birds and educational animal programs.
