FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are you doing to mitigate the spread of COVID-19? In order to fully comply with social-distancing protocols, we are currently only offering our Drive-through Adventure option. Additionally, admission sales must be made online with a credit card. Cash payments are not accepted. The feed cups available for purchase are sanitized after each use. Our gift shop and walk-through area are also closed until further notice.
According to the US Centers for Disease for Disease Control and Prevention, “At this time, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.”
What kinds of animals will I see? Refer to the Animals and Conservation page for the most up-to-date list of the animals you might spot on your safari!
How long should I plan to spend on safari? The Drive-through Safari Adventure allows you to drive your own vehicle through our game reserves as many times as you like — so how long you visit with the animals is up to you! Your reservation guarantees entry to the park, and is valid for the entire day. You can even head to downtown Lake Geneva or Pell Lake and support one of our local restaurants for lunch and come back if you’d like!
How do I book an adventure? Visitation is currently by reservation only. You can book online on the Plan Your Adventure page. The online reservation calendar indicates in real-time the number of spaces remaining on any given Drive-through Adventure.
When should I arrive for my Safari Adventure? Your booking for the Drive-through Safari Adventure guarantees you entry to Safari Lake Geneva for your reserved date. In order to reduce traffic congestion, you can arrive up to one hour before or one hour after your reserved time-slot, and stay until the safari park closes.
Do you have an admission price per vehicle? All of our admission rates are per person, not per vehicle.
What if there aren’t enough available spaces for my group? We realize that when looking to book a Drive-through Safari Adventure you may have more people in your vehicle than there are spaces available for any given time-slot. We recommend booking as many spaces as you can, and then emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to add more people to your reservation. We are able to manually add additional guests to an existing reservation, even if that takes us slightly over the number of available online spaces.
Do you have any vehicle restrictions for the Drive-through Safari Adventure? Since you are sharing the same space with our animals, on gravel roads, in the Drive-through Safari Adventure, we do not allow vehicles with an undercarriage lower than a standard sedan, open-top convertibles, vehicles without doors/roofs, or minivans with open doors. Only windows may be opened when in the game reserves. We do allow soft-top Jeeps and convertibles, but the tops must be closed. Motorcycles are not allowed in the Drive-through Safari Adventure.
What is your policy with respect to inclement weather? We are open rain or shine, and the animals don’t seem to mind the rain — but we do leave it up to the guests if they would like to reschedule due to weather. If you have an existing reservation and would like to re-book to an alternate date, just let us know and we can easily move it for you. If you don’t know an alternate date that works for you, just let us know when you do. Your booking remains in our system until someone checks in for your safari. Re-bookings are accomplished by email only, at email@example.com .
Do you have restrooms available? Yes! Our on-site restrooms are open, and are sanitized frequently.
Where is Safari Lake Geneva located? Our property is located roughly 5 miles southeast of downtown Lake Geneva in the village of Bloomfield. The physical address is W1612 Litchfield Rd., and the city is often listed as Lake Geneva or Genoa City if you’re using a GPS.
What if I need to cancel or change my booking? We will gladly refund any booking if you notify us by email, at firstname.lastname@example.org, at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled arrival. Otherwise, tickets are non-refundable but transferable to an alternate date. If you have an existing reservation and would like to re-book to an alternate date, just let us know and we can easily move it for you. If you don’t know an alternate date that works for you, just let us know when you do. Your booking remains in our system until someone checks in for your safari. Re-bookings are accomplished by email only, at email@example.com.
Do you have a restaurant on site? We do not have a restaurant, but our staff would be happy to recommend some local restaurants for you!
