Global Wildlife Center

Learn through touch as you wiggle a camel's hump, get eye to eye with a giraffe, or feel the wooly fur of a bison! This wildlife center features a 1.5 hour guided covered wagon safari through a 900-acre and totally free-roaming wildlife preserve. We have more than 4,000 animals from all over the world, including rare and endangered species. 

The up-close and personal animal experience is located in Folsom, LA. Travel 1 hour north of New Orleans or east of Baton Rouge and you'll find yourself on a safari adventure.
