OK, so nobody would ever mistake New Jersey for Africa. But the Wild Safari is quite well done. The 1200-or-so animals at the 350-acre safari roam more or less freely. Among the animals are elephants, camels, lions, white tigers, kangaroos, rhinos, and zebras. The Exploration Station allows guests to interact with animals, including an adorable capuchin monkey. There are also educational shows and demonstrations.
