Although not a hands-on petting zoo, the Safari Exploration Station allowed guests to view and interact with numerous small and baby animals during their post-Wild Safari Drive Thru visit.  Several animal cages, roomy pens, and bird perches dotted the Station's footprint, often varying by number to correspond with recent births from the Safari's animal residents including infant bear and lion cubs.

On a warm summer's day Moluccan Cockatoos and Coatimundi could spend their days in shaded enclosures with plenty of diversions and attention from the passing crowds.  The enclosures were given thatched roofs to complement the Safari Exploration Station atmosphere, as well as provide shade on hot, sunny days.

Experienced and knowledgeable staff members were always on hand to eagerly present their animal friends to guests and answer questions about these wonderful animals that called the Safari Exploration Station home.
