Canada's Drive-Thru Safari Rivals the African Savanna

Chinac

Most families head to the zoo to look at animals, assuming exotic creatures are a luxury that can only be found on safari. But, don't write it off just yet. A corner of Canada specializes in phenomenal animal experiences rivaling those found in the African Savanna. In Hamilton, Ontario, visitors can view and interact with more than 100 species of animals — all of which can be enjoyed right from the backseat of your car.

Photo Credit: Boris Kasimov via Flickr.com

Visitors to African Lion Safari will tell you nearly every corner of the park is photo worthy and all the animals seem to bask in the limelight, vying for attention. A little over an hour from popular travel destinations like Niagara Falls, Buffalo, and Toronto, not a lot of people know about this hidden gem so you won't have to fight the crowds to get a good shot. It's an easy day trip for families looking to experience more than just a day at the zoo.

Photo Credit: Boris Kasimov via Flickr.com

There are two ways to get through the park: by bus or on your own. While a guide will offer additional information about the animals on the bus tour, drivers are in for a rare treat when they opt to take their own vehicle. All the animals are used to the constant activity and aren’t shy about getting close. Baboons will frolick on top of cars, giraffes will lick your windows clean, and an ostrich will gladly peak in through the sunroof to say hello. By the end of the day, you may leave wondering if the animals are the main attraction — or if you are.

Photo Credit: Dennis Jarver via Flickr.com

But the African Lion Safari is more than just a drive-thru zoo. Some of its most popular exhibits include railroad tours, boat cruises around the primate and bird islands, and hands-on exhibits, like the Birds of Prey. The daily Elephant Swim is a seasonal favorite where guests can watch the entire herd of Asian Elephants splashing around to keep themselves cool. Park leaders try to keep the animals on a schedule so you know exactly when to come.

The Parc Omega – A Drive-Through Safari in Canada

15. September 2021 Categories: Travel reports , North America , Canada

We are always happy when we can visit during our travel the many different zoos in the world. On our 670-kilometer journey from Tadoussac on the St. Lawrence River to Ottawa in the southeastern part of the province of Ontario, we visited a very special zoo: Parc Omega – a safari park where we could even drive through independently with our large camper .

Park Omega Canada Header Image

Things to know about Parc Omega

Omega Park was founded in 1985 and opened its doors to the public in 1991. The park’s original concept was a place to spot North American wildlife on a 2,200-acre site in the region’s natural landscape. Gradually, the park was expanded taking into account nature, so that today more than 20 different animal species can be observed in their natural environment. The aim is to show visitors the beauty and simplicity of nature while providing unforgettable and respectful experiences with the wildlife, culture and history of Québec and Canada.

Park Omega, Canada, Map

The location of Parc Omega in Canada

Parc Omega is open every day of the year, including public holidays. Depending on the season, the opening hours are different, usually the park is open on weekdays from 10 am to 5 pm and on weekends from 9 am to 5 pm, with the last entrance possible at 4 pm. Due to pandemic, it is currently only possible to buy the entrance tickets online . You can therefore not just go there and buy tickets at the ticket booth, unless you have an annual pass or other free tickets.

Our tip: Buy one (or preferably several) bags of carrots in a supermarket beforehand. These may be fed to the deer and moose. Alternatively, you can also buy carrots in the visitor center.

On the following overview map you can see very nicely how the Parc Omega is laid out. Along a route of about 12 km you will pass lakes, meadows, small valleys, forests and rocky hills. You can discover many different species of wild animals such as.B beavers, moose, raccoons, wolves, coyotes, musk oxen, deer, turtles, wild boars, red foxes, ibex, caribou, black bears, moose, wild turkeys and bison.

With our caravan on Drive-Through Safari

The Parc Omega is a drive-through park . So you stay in the car as a visitor and drive on a wide, well-signposted path through the park – this is even possible with a motorhome or with school buses. In addition, there are some designated places where you can leave the car, e.B. at hiking trails, playgrounds or picnic areas.

Reindeer, Moose, Deer & Roe Deer

Most of the animals in the park – in addition to countless wild geese – are reindeer, moose, deer and roe deer. You can find them almost everywhere in the park. The special thing is that they all walk around completely freely and are totally trusting. As soon as you stop somewhere with the car, it does not take long for the first animals to come to the car and wait longingly for a carrot.

Black Bears & Cinnamon Bears

The highlight of our park visit was waiting for us at the end of the trail: a group of black bears and cinnamon bears. The black bear is the most common bear species in Canada and is perfectly equipped for the cold winter due to its thick, shiny coat. Although black bears are omnivores, they eat 75% plant-based. One color form and subspecies of the American black bear is the so-called cinnamon bear, of which there are two pairs in Omega Park. Cinnamon bears are native primarily to the central, eastern, and western areas of the United States and Canada. The most striking difference between cinnamon bears and all other black bears is their brown or reddish-brown fur, which is a bit reminiscent of cinnamon. We were able to convince ourselves that cinnamon bears are excellent climbers. The sight of this big bear in the tree was really gigantic and we could hardly believe our eyes. A great experience!

In total, we spent just over 2 hours in the park. We had the impression that all animals are housed in sufficiently large enclosures, many even run around wild and are therefore not really locked up.

African Lion Safari: A Seriously Exotic Day Trip to Hamilton

MyHamilton logo

If you have yet to experience “Canada’s Original Safari Adventure”, make this the year for this unforgettable day trip to Hamilton.

African Lion Safari’s expansive drive through reserve lets families get closer than they ever imagined to some of the world’s most exotic species. Located just an hour’s drive from Toronto and around an hour and a half from Buffalo and Niagara Falls, it’s easy to get to one of Ontario’s most popular tourist attractions.

Family-owned and uniquely Canadian, African Lion Safari was founded by Colonel Gorden Debenham Dailley, who in 1968, set off to create a new attraction in Canada: a drive-through wildlife park. It started with just 40 lions. There’s now over 1000 animals, 100 different species and 750 acres of parkland.

Walk, drive, cruise, and journey along the railway through different areas of the park to discover the wide range of attractions here.

Game Reserves

In African Lion Safari’s unique Game Reserves , the tables are turned. Visitors are “caged” in their car while animals get to roam throughout the reserves. Get your cameras ready as you settle in your own vehicle and embark on a nine-km drive through seven distinct, large reserves including Nairobi Sanctuary, Simba Lion Country, Timbavati Lion Country, Wankie Bushland Trail, Rocky Ridge Veldt, Australasia and The Americas. You can view over 1000 exotic birds and animals, many of which are classified as endangered or threatened. (You can hop on a safari tour bus instead for an extra fee.)

Other Attractions

African Queen Boat Cruise

On a sunny day, pack your swimsuit and hit the wet zone at Misumu Bay Wet Play Area (open between May 19 and September 3). This adventure area features sprinklers, slides, jets, and more!

Daily Presentations

At various times throughout the day, visitors can catch one of four presentations to learn about the animals that call African Lion Safari home. In Parrot Paradise , visitors can watch in awe of their intelligence; see hawks, eagles, owls, vultures and falcons in the Birds of Prey Flying Demo ; and learn about various reptiles in Little Ray’s Nature Centre.

African Lion Safari in Ontario

African Lion Safari

Unlike the traditional zoo where visitors freely roam the grounds observing animals in cages, the African Lion Safari near Toronto , Ontario, is set up to allow visitors to drive at their own pace around multi-acre reserves in which the animals roam freely.

Open daily between May and October, the African Lion Safari also stages animal shows and workshops and has a splash pad and playground.

Though the African Lion Safari is more acceptable in terms of animal welfare than zoos and amusement parks like the atrocious Marineland in Niagara Falls , which has been criticized for its animal cruelty, the elephant shows and rides at the African Lion Safari do seem archaic and humiliating to the animals while offering no educational value for viewers.

Tips for Visiting

Dennis Jarvis / Flickr / CC BY-SA 2.0

  • Driving your own vehicle around the animal reserves is at your own risk. Baboons have been known to jump on and scratch cars, pull at antennas or remove windshield wipers. Take the Safari Bus if you are concerned about your car being damaged.
  • If you decide to drive your own vehicle, you have the option of a monkey-free route; monkeys tend to be the biggest car hazard.
  • The park is less busy and not so hot if you arrive for the 10 am opening.
  • As with most theme parks, food is generally unhealthy and overpriced. Pack a picnic lunch or at the least bring a snack and a water bottle.
  • July and August can be very hot; be prepared with water, sunscreen, hats, and bring bathing suits for the kids to take advantage of the splash pad.
  • Slightly rainy days are good days to visit, with fewer visitors and animals that are more active than on very hot, humid days.
  • If you want to see some of the shows (Birds of Prey, Parrot, Elephants), find out their start times before you do anything else, and plan your activities around these times.

See the Animals

Derek Hatfield / Flickr / CC BY 2.0 

Animals wandering the African Lion Safari reserves include giraffes, zebras, rhinoceroses, ostriches, lions, cheetahs, baboons, and more.

Birds of prey, including eagles, hawks, owls, vultures, and falcons as well as parrots can be seen during demonstration and shows.

Gentle animals, such as baby goats, can be handled and pet at the Pets' Corner.

How Much Time to Spend at the Safari

African Lion Safari 

Visitors should plan on spending at least three hours at the African Lion Safari. The drive through the animal reserves takes between an hour and two hours, but the other amenities will keep you at the park for longer. Many people arrive for the 10 am opening and stay the whole day.

Getting There

Google Maps

Located in a rural part of Cambridge, Ontario, the African Lion Safari is about an hour from Toronto and 1.5 hours from Niagara Falls. Note that depending on your source, the location may be given as - not Cambridge - but Hamilton or Flamborough.

The route is marked clearly with blue Ontario attraction signage.

While You're in the Area

Little Louie's Burger Joint & Soupery

  • Where to eat:  Enjoy delicious Mexican food in a casual atmosphere at Latinoamerica Unida. Slightly more sophisticated than a food truck, Little Louie's Burger Joint & Soupery serves up delish fast food.
  • Where to stay: Several hotels are in the vicinity of the African Lion Safari - mostly mid-range. Homewood Suites by Hilton is particularly convenient for families as each guest room has at least one bedroom plus full kitchen and double sofa sleeper. If you're looking for something a little swankier, Langdon Hall is a Relais & Chateaux property in the area.
  • Other attractions: A lot of green space, farmland, and conservation areas surround the African Lion Safari. Some charming towns within 20-minutes travel include Elora and Fergus - famous for 19th-century architecture and a preserved mill - and St. Jacobs Country - popular with tourists because of the hiking trails, strong Mennonite presence, and artistic offerings.
  • The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada is a less touristy, quieter way to observe animals roaming freely, namely, donkeys who have been rescued from abuse and/or neglect.

A Moose Safari in Algonquin

safari parks in ontario canada

Our canoes drift ever so slowly towards the two moose in the marsh – a minute seems like an eternity but our tactics pay off as the moose accept our presence.

MS Canoeing 8701

And so for the next 20 minutes, the click of shutters is mixed with the sounds of croaking bullfrogs, singing birds and the wind caressing the tree tops. This is the moose photography safari .

For the last five years I have partnered with Voyageur Quest to run a moose photography safari into Algonquin Provincial Park’s backcountry. Every year is a bit different – in 2012, we saw 14 ungulates. Some from a distance; others allowed us into their space for a portrait session. Nature is amazing and seeing wildlife up close re-enforces that experience.

We spend a comfortable evening in Voyageur Quest’s log cabin before heading into the Park. Our paddle in is short – three portages, a small stream and a couple of lakes later, we get to our site. The camp sits up on a sandy ledge with a great westerly view. Perfect for sunset shots! 

MS Tent 8820

The guides handle most of the camp activities leaving us to unload our gear, grab our camera bags, and paddle to the back bays where the moose should be.

After a short paddle, a large cow presents herself. We go still. A few quiet minutes later, a bull swims across the lake. Our excitement builds. 

MP cow-moose 0682

Rounding a corner in our canoes, two young males are in the distance eating. We must now show patience: our canoes drift towards them at what seems like a snails pace. They look at us, and then go back to their plants. This scenerio continues to play out: we inch closer – the moose look at us – we stop paddling – they go back to eating. All the while we are shooting frame after frame just in case they decide they have had enough of our antics. We do not want to stress the animals.

 We finally make our way back to camp. Our guides have prepared a feast for us: pork teriyaki, rainbow trout, fresh vegetables with a banana boat dessert. Laughter and conversation fills the air with tales of the day being told.

5 am came early, but the morning light makes it worthwhile. We climb into the canoes and head into the dawn’s stillness. The lake is a mirror.

MS TheBeach 8790

We see a few moose in the distance; we try to get close, but they want no part of us. A loon opens its wings for a big stretch – the sound of clicking shutters fills the air. We are ready for another meal. Once again the guides pull out all stops: cappuccinos, french toast, maple bacon and fruit. It is now time to head back.

As we enjoy a leisurely paddle back to the launch site, we reflect on the exciting and unforgettable experience that we had just had: photographing 1,000 pound moose in their natural habitat.

This trip is one of the ultimate wildlife photography adventures in Canada. It gets you up close and personal with majestic moose in the wilderness setting of Algonquin's backcounty.

15 of Canada's greatest national parks

safari parks in ontario canada

From Banff to Kluane, here's our guide to Canada's best national parks © Hue Chee Kong / Shutterstock

While Europe protects ancient monuments, Canada safeguards its national parks, vast, lightly populated areas filled with the kind of elemental landscapes that define the nation.

Canada’s first national park, Banff, inspired by the Rocky Mountains’ hot springs and pioneering railway construction, was founded in 1885. Just over 25 years later, with the fledgling park network numbering half-a-dozen, the government formed  Parks Canada (originally known as the “Dominion Parks Branch'') as the world’s first umbrella national park organization. Today there are 47 national parks plus an additional 171 National Historic Sites that form part of a growing and increasingly varied environmental network. Five new parks have been added since 2015 and another three are earmarked for inclusion in the near future. Here's our guide to the best of them.

1. Banff, Alberta

Best mountain park

Best known today for its skiing, hiking and water-based activities,  Banff owes its existence to hot water and trains. This is where tourism in Canada first took root in the 1880s inspired by the exploitation of the natural spring water that flowed out of Sulphur Mountain and the construction of the nation’s first cross-continental railway.

Due to its early foundation, Banff is far and away the most developed and popular Canadian park with an 8000-strong townsite , three ski areas, lake cruises, and an abundance of hotels and restaurants. While some decry what they see as its “over-commercialization”, it’s still refreshingly easy to get lost hiking in the Rocky Mountain backcountry or disappear on skis to one of its remote off-the-grid lodges.

Want to go hiking? Here's our guide to the best trails in Canada

2. Pacific Rim, BC

Best park for surfing

A narrow but dramatic strip of wave-whipped beaches, brooding forests, and weather-beaten sea-stacks on the west coast of Vancouver Island ,  Pacific Rim is split into three units, each with its own specialist activity:

  • The largely roadless West Coast Trail Unit is bisected by one of Canada’s most famous long-distance hikes that incorporates 75km (47 miles) of beachcombing, ladder-climbing, and rock-hopping. Access is controlled and hiking reservations must be made in advance.
  • The Broken Group Islands Unit in Barkley Sound is a wilderness archipelago that’s only reachable by boat or on multiday kayaking excursions.
  • Accessible by road and attracting 95% of the park’s visitors is the northern Long Beach Unit, sandwiched between the two mellow tourist towns of Tofino and Ucluelet and revered for its string of surfing beaches and tangerine sunsets.

3. Auyuittuq, Nunavut

Best park in the Arctic Circle

Nunavut ’s parks are like frontiers on the frontier with only rudimentary visitor facilities and limited access points. However, if you’re bold, brave, and determined to get to grips with Canada’s inhospitable northern fringes, gravitate to Baffin Island where  Auyuittuq National Park offers one of Canada’s finest wilderness hikes. The Akshayuk Pass route is a sketchily marked 100km (62-mile) “trail” that follows a broad open valley, climbing to a height of 500m (1640ft) and crossing the Arctic Circle along its course. Highlights include views of flat-topped Mt Asgard, where James Bond (depicted by American stuntman Rick Sylvester) famously base-jumped off a cliff in his skis in the 1977-film The Spy Who Loved Me .

4. Fundy, New Brunswick

Best park for beachcombing

New Brunswick’s first  national park was inaugurated in 1948 thanks to its ginormous tides (the world’s highest) when water levels oscillate between 12 and 16m (39 to 52ft) in the Bay of Fundy. When the sea water recedes, the region’s broad beaches reveal a patchwork of shimmering mudflats, teeming rock pools, colonies of crustaceans, and other little seen marine secrets.

Behind the uneven shoreline, characterized by its irregularly eroded sandstone cliffs, the heavily wooded park is dotted with pretty waterfalls and laced with trails suited to hiking and biking. You can also wield a nine-iron on a golf course, stay at a retro 1950s motel, and swim in a heated outdoor saltwater pool for a milder alternative to the chilly ocean.

5. Glacier, BC

Best park for backcountry skiing

Often confused with its more famous namesake across the border in the US,  Glacier was an early addition to Canada’s national park network, designated in 1886 less than a year after Banff.

Protecting over 120 glaciers and legendary for its backcountry ski-touring and mountaineering, the park registers abnormally heavy annual snowfall (as much as 23m/75ft) which, in turn, converts the vertiginous slopes of the Selkirk and Purcell Mountains into one of the world's most active avalanche areas.

For this reason, most backcountry activities, including skiing, caving, and climbing, are regulated and you must register with park wardens before venturing out. Known as the birthplace of North American mountaineering, it remains a heavenly escape for modern snow-sport extremists.

Access to the region is via the Trans-Canada Hwy which bisects the park east-west summiting 1130m (3707ft) Rogers Pass, a national historic site and one of Canada’s most beautiful mountain passes.

6. Bruce Peninsula, Ontario

Best park for water activities

Around three hours' drive northwest of Toronto, the  Bruce Peninsula is made up of a limestone outcrop at the northern end of the Niagara Escarpment that juts like a bent finger into North America’s Great Lakes separating the cool waters of Georgian Bay from warmer Lake Huron.

While the national park itself is not large, it squeezes a lot of attractions into its 154 sq km (59 sq miles), many of which are water based. There’s an ethereal "grotto" (water-filled cave) to explore, plentiful kayaking opportunities and ample chances to swim in either warm Lake Huron, or cold but clear Georgian Bay. The peninsula’s green woodlands are intersected by a short shore-hugging section of the 800km (497-mile) Bruce Trail.

7. Prince Edward Island, PEI

Best park for literary landmarks

Eastern Canada’s most popular  national park , with around 750,000 annual visitors, is a diminutive affair that manages to squeeze an intense mix of croissant-shaped sand dunes and trailblazing literary sights into its 27 sq km (10 sq miles).

The beaches and dunes are protected as an important nesting ground for the endangered piping plover, a sparrow-sized shorebird with a soft whistling call, while a few blocks inland you can satisfy your more erudite tendencies with a visit to the farm and house that were the inspiration for the 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Canada’s most enduring literary icon.

8. Gros Morne, Newfoundland

Best park for geological exploration

Students of plate tectonics and continental drift can enrich their geological knowledge amid the unique topography of  Gros Morne ’s barren "tablelands", an eerie flat-topped massif featuring exposed rock from deep within the earth’s crust.

For non-scientists, advanced geological qualifications are not required to appreciate the beauty of the park’s deep-cut fjords, blustery headlands, vertiginous cliffs, and powerful waterfalls. Whales breach in the surrounding seas and shipwrecks and beaches dot the coast.

9. Jasper, Alberta

Best park for wildlife-viewing

Another Rocky Mountains park with a townsite and a ski resort,  Jasper is a larger, steelier, more northerly continuation of Banff. It too has shops and restaurants, a gondola to the top of a nearby mountain (the Whistlers) and a spirit-reviving hot springs. But, receiving less than half of Banff’s annual visitor count, Jasper is a much more suitable place to see big fauna in its natural habitat. Elks graze on railway tracks, bears hunt for berries in subalpine forest, and wolves and cougars occasionally prowl the park’s central valleys in the winter.

10. Grasslands, Saskatchewan

Best prairie park

Comprising a sea of grass and prairie where treeless hills clash with big blue skies,  Grasslands is one of two national parks in Saskatchewan . Anchored by a visitor center located in the tiny settlement of Val Marie, 350km southwest of Regina, the park’s harsh, semi-arid landscapes are the habitat for two important animal species: black-tailed prairie dogs and plains bison. The latter were successfully reintroduced into the park in 2005.

The easiest way to see both is on the self-guided Grassland Ecotur Scenic Drive that incorporates seven points of interest along its 80km (50 mile) course including old homesteader cabins, flat-topped buttes, and a couple of short interpretive walks. 

11. Cape Breton Highlands, Nova Scotia

Best park for a road trip

While many Canadian national parks have no roads at all,  Cape Breton Highlands in the Maritimes makes road-tripping easy courtesy of the Cabot Trail Scenic Travelway, a 298km-long (185-mile) "ring road" that circumnavigates the island’s northern reaches dipping into tiny Acadian fishing villages en route. Around one-third of the road traces the edge of the national park where you can absorb primordial land-meets-ocean scenery embellished by dramatic highlands, steep cliffs and a broad tundra-esque plateau. The big show-stopping hike is the 8.2km (5-mile) round-trip Skyline Trail from where walkers can look down on ocean, headlands and the asphalt Cabot Trail rendered in miniature.

12. Forillon, Québec

Best park for coastal hikes

Protruding into the Gulf of St Lawrence on the eastern extremity of Québec’s Gaspé Peninsula,  Forillon 's crested mountains plunge dramatically into the Atlantic with rugged bluffs overlooking waters replete with spouting whales. Cliff-top trails well-ventilated by blustery winds characterize the peninsula’s precipitous north coast, while the south coast is more sheltered and secluded, harboring beaches and salt marshes where rare ringlet butterflies thrive. Just as birds and sea mammals dominate the coastal wildlife; porcupine, deer, moose, foxes, and bears inhabit the forested slopes of the park's interior.

13. Nahanni, Northwest Territories

Best park for wilderness kayaking

You’ll need to jump on a floatplane to see the unsullied glories of  Nahanni in the Northwest territories, a vast roadless national park, acclaimed for its wilderness rivers that curl around the MacKenzie Mountains through deep canyons and extensive karst landscapes riddled with interconnecting caves. With zero population and no services, visits here are pricey but rewarding once-in-a-lifetime trips best organized out of bases in Fort Simpson or Whitehorse . The multiday guided paddling excursions on the South Nahanni River are spectacular.

14. Kluane, Yukon

Best wilderness park

Combined with the adjacent Wrangell-St Elias national park in Alaska,  Kluane  in the Yukon  makes up the largest protected wilderness area on Earth, a veritable "empire of mountain and ice" that includes Canada’s highest peak, Mt Logan (5959m/19,550ft) and an extreme backcountry of giant icefields, remote unclimbed mountains, and grizzly bears who have never met a human.

To get a glimpse of a small portion of Kluane’s supersized wonders, track the Alaska and Haines Highways north of the BC-Yukon border where two dozen trailheads mark the gateway to a vast array of intimidating landscapes offering everything from one-hour rambles to highly advanced multiday adventures.

15. Gwaii Haanas, BC

Best park for Indigenous culture

This extensive  national park , and UNESCO World Heritage site, encompasses elongated Moresby Island and 137 smaller islands that cluster around its southern tail. It combines a time-capsule look at abandoned villages of the Haida First Nation with hot springs, windswept natural beauty, and some of Canada’s best sea-kayaking. Archaeological finds have revealed more than 500 ancient Haida sites, including villages and burial caves throughout the islands. The most famous village is SGang Gwaay (Ninstints) on Anthony Island, where lines of storm-aged totem poles stare mysteriously out to sea.

Planning tip:  Advance planning is required as the number of visitors entering the park each day is limited. The easiest way is to take a guided trip with a licensed operator; access to the park is by boat or floatplane only.
