  • The best months to visit the Lion Safari in Miami are from November to February.
  • Do not bring shiny objects in the car when you visit the contact zoo or hide them well. Ostriches adore sparkles and may very well carry off bright objects. You cannot return items and equipment stolen by animals.
  • Do not open the windows of the machine. If you arrive on time and around you are full of animals - this is a safety requirement. If there is monstrous heat around - even more so.
  • Take bathing clothes and slippers with you. Lion Country safari zoo has a small but very pleasant water park for a great pastime.
  • Stock up on fresh water, but rather take sports bottles with a spray bottle. This is especially important when there are children in the car. It can be very hot on the route.
