Lion Country Safari remains a roaring good time even during the Coronavirus, providing entertainment to South Florida families.

Their drive-through safari is open, meaning you can see 1,000 animals roam on over 600 acres of wilderness from your own car.

A special Coronavirus pricing of $17 per person allows you to pack the family in the car while observing social distancing and still have a wild time like I did with my son recently as we made the 90-minute drive north to West Palm.

"We've been excited to welcome quite a few guests through our safari. People are enjoying the activity that they can enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own vehicle with their family and see a wild experience right outside their car window. There was actually a recent study by the Saint Louis Zoo that describes that a visit to the zoo, in a natural environment with animals or around animals, is actually really good for your mental and physical health," said Haley Passeser, public relations specialist at Lion Country Safari.

Haley Passeser of Lion Country Safari says they have two new lion cubs and rhino calves.

"There's so much to see and do at this safari right now. We have quite a few babies. We've had several impala babies just born in addition to some other antelope species. We also do have two rhino calves that are roaming the preserve with the herd right now. We also have two lion cubs that are just over six months old," said Passeser.
