Gone Wild Safari in Pineville is a 50-acre preserve where children and families can spend the day interacting with exotic animals. Species graze and roam free in areas that mimic their natural habitats. Visitors ride open-air vehicles through the park, where they can view and feed many of the animals. The park is home to camels, giraffes, kangaroos, ostriches, wildebeests, zebras and many other herbivores, and filled with tall oak trees, lush palms and ponds for waterfowl.
