Fossil Rim is Fantastic! You drive through this huge animal preserve at your own pace. The different species have no qualms about coming up to your car and sticking their heads in through the window! Its amazing how close you can get to the Zebras, Giraffes, Llhamas....!

The scenic overlook is really a nice 1/2 way point. I always bring my own lunch and eat on the cliff where there is always a cool breeze blowing! There is also a Gift shop here with many unusual Gifts made by Local Artisans.

You can not turn around and "revisit" the drive....so take your time and really enjoy the drive. There is no time limit, so really use the 1/2 way point to stretch your legs, use the restroom and eat/drink something.

PROS: Unique Up Close Interaction with Wildlife
CONS: A bit Pricey but well worth it!

Driving through the Fossil Rim Park is fun for the whole family. Many animals walk right up to your car. A petting zoo provides a lot of fun for the little kids. My only complaint is that other similar parks have a greater variety of animals. But visiting Fossil Rim is a lot of fun. Great place.

If youre looking for an inspiring family getaway thats laced with adventure, grab the kids and head to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Take the driving tour through the 1,800 acre nature preserve, and feed all kinds of animals right from your car window. Your kids will love this up-close with nature experience, giving you a myriad of opportunities for discovery and learning. Be sure to check out the gift shop and education building, and visit the research area where fifteen endangered species are being protected and bred. The center offers special events including group outings, birthday parties, night hikes, and sleepovers.

Fossil Rim is a wildlife park that you drive through and enjoy the animals as many will come up to your car. They have many different species, including ostriches, zebras, giraffes, deer, cheetahs, antelope, and many more. One of the best parts is the giraffe area where the giraffes will actually bend down to your car and eat the food out of your hand. Halfway through the drive is a scenic overlook where you can get out, enjoy food in their restaurant, shope the gift shop, and pet the animals in a petting zoo. Fossil Rim also offers guided tours and overnight stays.

Whether you drive your own vehicle through this wildlife center or take a guided tour, you will experience wildlife up close and personal. My favorite is hand feeding the giraffes! I highly recommend the Family Tour, it is worth the time and cost about $30 per person.
