Jungle Island Zoo is Safari Adventures' mobile zoo. It is an extreme and exciting educational exotic animal encounter! Jungle Island Zoo and Safari Adventures both feature numerous rare and unusual animals from around the world. Visitors can observe, pet, and feed our "critters" at their leisure and unlike scheduled shows, everyone gets a front row seat! Young and old alike are fascinated with the "hands on" exposure to animals that Jungle Island Zoo and Safari Advenures offers. Most people have only seen such animals on television or in distant zoo enclosures. Both facilities are family operated and family friendly. Both offer friendly and knowledgeable attendants and zookeepers who are always available to provide interesting and fun facts or to answer questions one-on-one. You can visit Jungle Island Zoo's website for more information.

Photos with our tigers and lions are available inside the Kalahari at the main entrance. Cub feeding is also part of our inside animal experience. Photos are available to purchase and can be put on a USB card at an additional cost for you to take home and share with everyone. USB cards are great for Facebook, screen savers, cell phone and desktop wallpapers, holiday cards, etc. With a photo USB card you have unlimited photo reproduction. The photos are unedited and uncropped. All we ask is that guests do not take personal photos or videos of the tigers and lions. Photo proceeds are used towards feline concervation.
