Oh Baby! We’re Open!
Exciting adventures and fun await you at The Wilds. All activities are open and require reservations. But hurry, availability will go fast due to social distancing and safe practices.
WE ARE OPEN AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON.
Tucked into the countryside of southeastern Ohio, The Wilds is the unexpected home of rhinos, giraffes, cheetahs, takin and other rare and endangered animals. While serving as a living laboratory for international conservation scientists, The Wilds also offers incredible safari adventures from ziplining to horseback riding, and other opportunities for guests to see some of their favorite animals up close, both in the pasture and behind the scenes.
Overnight accommodations offer a complete weekend getaway experience. Nomad Ridge, open May through October, consists of yurts that are each suitable for two adult guests. The Lodge, open year-round, is a luxury cabin that sleeps 12 guests. The Wilds’ Cabins at Straker Lake consist of seven beautifully furnished cabins. Open year-round, each cabin accommodates six guests — a perfect getaway destination for a family vacation. Overnight stays include complimentary Open-Air Safaris and discounts on tours.
Please note that while all activities and adventures are available at this time, due to limited capacity and to continue our social distancing efforts, advanced reservations are required for all daily tours and overnight accommodations.
Reservations can be made online at TheWilds.org or by calling the Call Center at (740) 638-5030.
