The Holidays at Big Joel's Safari
Come visit our walk thru experience in the evening hours during the 2024 Holiday Season! It will be much different than your typical Big Joel's visit as the walking paths and areas will be changed for the holidays. The main attraction at Big Joel's Safari any time is the animals and you will see plenty of them. Of course many of our warm weather loving creatures will be off display keeping nice and toasty. We look forward to seeing you this holiday season!
Before you visit us during the holidays we just want to clarify one thing. If you are looking for a giant light display with millions upon millions of lights and then a small petting zoo at the end or just a couple animals on display, then this is probably not for you. If you are looking to see animals along with a generous amount of lights and decorations then this is the spot for you!

Christmas Lights, Decorations, and More throughout the Zoo!
Rudy's Refreshments- Enjoy some hot cocoa, drinks, snacks, S'more kits, cookies, & more
