Embark on your next outdoor adventure at Wildlife Safari Park, a four mile, drive-through North American wildlife experience in Ashland, Nebraska.
Today: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The 600-square foot viewing deck overlooks the 40 acres of woodland hills and open grasslands that make up the Bison Plains. A full-size bronze sculpture of a mother bison and her young calf greet guests at the entrance of the viewing deck surrounded by playground mulch, which encourages kids to climb. In addition, a nature-based playground offers opportunities to explore, play and learn.
Start your adventure with the sight of prairie dogs popping in and out of their 2,100 square-foot habitat. Located right outside of the Visitor Center, Prairie Dog Town can also make for a fun finish to your four-mile journey through Wildlife Safari Park.
Settle down to these critters sounding off with their many calls or foraging for food as they emerge from their burrows.
Explore this Exhibit
Elk Prairie is the first and last habitat you will encounter on your drive-through adventure. About 70 American elk roam among a scene of prairie grasslands, ponds and shade trees at Elk Prairie, the first and last habitat you will encounter on your drive-through adventure.
While you explore, keep an ear out for the sound of bugling bull elk, a sign of late summer breeding season.
Due to the high volume of visitors, there might be a longer wait than usual to enter Wildlife Safari Park. There might also be a steady flow of visitors along the viewing path inside. Please be patient with us during this time.
