Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park:
Litchfield Park, AZ

by | Aug 6, 2023 | 0 comments

Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park is huge! It is practically three parks in one location.  The biggest mistake I did was visit under time constraints. Otherwise, I could’ve stayed an entire day, and even then I don’t know if I would have been able to see everything. With over 600 species of animals, the park has Arizona’s largest collection of exotic and endangered animals.

Our time visiting was mostly spent at the general zoo area. There were so many interesting animals including kangaroos, lions, tigers, zebras, llamas and so many others. There is also a children’s petting zoo and playground. 

There is a daily educational sea lion show with an option of feeding them. The giraffe feeding is a lot of fun with their long tongues surrounding the food. The Lory Parrot feeding is also extremely enjoyable. The Penguins and Stingrays are also fed in public. The Wildlife Encounter Show is both fascinating and educational.

The zoo has many rides incorporated within the exhibits (rides are an additional charge).  The Skyride chairlift travels over many of the exhibits which can then be viewed from above. There is a fun log flume water ride that has a display of parrots and monkeys, and the Aquarium’s south pacific reef tunnel tank can be viewed while on the ride. There is also a Carousel, flying scooter ride, rollercoaster and The Soaring Eagle Zip Line. 

The African Safari Train Ride is a narrated ride through the plains of Africa where the antelope gazellas, ostriches and more animals live. The narrated tram ride takes visitors on about  a 20 minute ride through the African Safari viewing Beisa Oryx, Sable Antelope, Watusi Cattle, Kudu, Springbok, Wildebeest, Addra gazelle, Sitatunga Antelope, Warthogs, Red River Hogs, Ostrich, and Rhinos in their natural environment.  

The Aquarium section near the entrance of the park includes a shark tank, alligators, stingrays, penguins, sea horses, a touch tank, a reef tank and so much more.

One thing is for sure, if I ever visit the area again I would definitely want to visit the Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park again. But this time, I’d reserve an entire day for the experience.
