Visit Omaha: Wildlife Safari Park

The Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park & Wildlife Safari was ranked the best in the nation by USA Today 10Best readers, so we knew we had to make a visit while in Nebraska.

As we drove through the Wildlife Safari Park, we came across elk, deer, cranes, pelicans, and bison.

It was really neat to see all of the elk antlers poking out from the grass (we didn't realize they were elk until they all started moving), and to watch the bison wallow about in the plains.

You must adhere to the speed limit to prevent from hitting any animals, as most do roam around freely.  You must also be sure to stay in the car at all times (for obvious reasons), unless you are in specific areas where you are allowed to walk around.  

Not only can you drive through the park, but you can also hike.  We did a short hike and saw lots of exhibits which housed owls, bald eagles, and even a bear.

We were hoping to see a wolf, but we didn't get to see one. 

We all had fun seeking out the wildlife at the Wildlife Safari Park!
