Mother’s day weekend was really busy for us, we had family in town for Joshio’s graduation so we wanted to take them somewhere fun for Mother’s day which was also the last full day they were going to have with us. My sister and brother-in-law had been to the Wild Animal Safari in Pine Mountain, GA before and recommended it. My brother-in-law is just like my mom, they either overestimate or underestimate when it comes to time (lol!). He had originally told us it was only an hour away, after driving for half an hour I decided to check the GPS on my phone and it still said we had an hour left! Oh the lies! lol… we also stopped twice on the way for potty breaks (life with a potty trained toddler) so in reality it took us 2 hours to get there which was around 4pm.

There are two things to do there, you have the actual safari which you can go in a large bus with a bunch of people, rent your own car/mini-van/van or use your own car. We decided to rent a 15 passenger van since no one wanted to get their cars dirty and the 7 passenger van was to small for us. You also have to buy food for the animal which is in addition to the entrance fee. Honestly, I think the place is extremely overpriced but if you go with a group then you can split the food and car fees (which is what we did).

We paid $23 per adult and kids 2 and under are free (yay for us!). If you buy tickets online, 24 hours before then you can get $2 off your ticket. The van cost us $22 and the food was $20 for 5 bags. Since we split the other costs between 4, we really only had to pay $10. So, our total cost for this adventure for a family of 3 was $60 (in addition to gas you use up on the way, snacks you buy at the gas station and lunch/dinner if you plan on eating out). Not cheap but we saw it as a mini staycation. Also, you can always take your own food and have a picnic at the park (there are tables), which will save you some $.

The second thing to do (before or after your safari) is the walk about, which is where you’ll find more animals to see and pet.

You will probably spend a good 2-3 hours at the place so I do think it is worth it. All of us (including Callie) had a great time! We laughed so hard because we would always scream when animals were slobbering everywhere and coming up to get food.

One recommendation I do have is to go earlier in the day. We got there at 4pm and by that time a lot of animals had already eaten since it was a busy day at the park. When we were driving around, most of them were sleeping.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mommas!! 🙂

God Bless, XoXo
