There’s nothing quite like having an up-close and personal experience with an exotic animal. That’s what Global Wildlife Center in Folsom offers during an hour-and-a-half guided tour in a Safari Wagon.
All sorts of beautiful beasts — bison, giraffes, zebras, camels, llamas, kangaroos, emu and more, more than 4,000 exotic animals total – roam about in their own animal kingdom on this 900-acre plot of rural Louisiana land with 12 ponds and a lake about an hour north of New Orleans. The one-and-a-half-hour guided Safari Wagon tours are available seven days a week, year-round, as are private tours in smaller covered all-terrain vehicles. Global Wildlife Center tour tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and tour times are updated every Friday. 26389 Highway 40, Folsom, 985-624-9453, globalwildlife.com, @GlobalWildlife
