NEW EXPERIENCES COMING TO THE NORTH GEORGIA SAFARI DRIVE THRU

When COVID-19 began to take hold in Georgia, like many businesses, the North Georgia Wildlife Park was forced to become creative. That’s when the Safari Drive Thru was born! This is an experience that allows families to enjoy dozens of animals while practicing social distancing from the safety of their own automobile.

The Drive Thru was an immediate success, and literally thousands of people have experienced it since it began.

Hope Bennett, (co-owner/co-director of the Park), however, is not one to rest on her past success. Hope explains, “It’s time for us to take the Safari Drive Thru to the next level. So, this fall we will be adding new animals, new interactive exhibits, and special drive thru experiences for Halloween and Christmas! Stay tuned because the best is yet to come!”

 

The North Georgia Wildlife Park is located at 2912 Paradise Valley Road in Cleveland, GA. You can learn more about the park and all it offers at its website, www.ngwpark.com.
