On 75 acres of former farmland in Jungle Jay Christie is living out his childhood dream. If you didn’t know it, you might think you were looking out over the savannahs of eastern Africa. Safari Lake Geneva was founded in the interest of helping save wildlife around the world. “Jungle Jay” as he likes to be called founded the drive-through wildlife park in 2016. Jay says, his safari is the opposite of a zoo where the animals roam at liberty, much as they do in the wild and the people are in cages (their cars). Unlike a real safari, guests are invited to feed the animals.
Every continent is represented except Antarctica. African animals include ostriches, zebras, and giraffes. There are Nilgai antelope. The largest of the Asian antelope and representing North America the Plains Bison. None of the animals on this game reserve were captured in the wild. All were born from parents already in captivity. In the wild, some of these animals like the Addax are under the threat of extinction. A portion of our proceeds every year helps to support, wild animals and wildlife conservation here in the Americas, as well as in Africa and Asia.
Jungle Jay is at home on the Burr Oak Savannah of Southern Wisconsin living out a fantasy beyond his wildest boyhood dreams in the Village of Bloomfield.
