Out of Africa Wildlife Park
If you have ever visited Sedona, Arizona and the Verde Valley you know all about the wonderful wildlife and caretakers at Out of Africa Wildlife Park located in nearby Camp Verde. This park has become a main attraction to people visiting the area. As for the locals, well we go there often throughout the year! We go for the excitement that fills the air when the strength, dexterity and cleverness of the Tigers are on display at Tiger Splash, some people (me included) face their fears and hold a python in the Giant Snake Show, smiles cross the faces of all when Pilgrim or Kibo (Giraffes) visit to say hello and get some treats during the African Bush Safari Tour, be warned if they are in the mood you might get a big giraffe kiss. Make no mistake, this place IS special. It is not a zoo! Out of Africa Wildlife Park is a place like no other, were you can see hundreds of animals from all over the world in their natural habitat along with wonderful and exciting educational attractions that get you up close and learning about the wonderful animals that live there. The caretakers do not train the wildlife, or try to change their behavior in any way. They are well known for their commitment to their wildlife and serve as a safe haven for many of the animals they have rescued over the years. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit Out of Africa Wildlife Park.
