Although you are permitted to drive through the park to view and feed the animals, I highly recommend a guided tour for a more educational, hands-on experience. You'll have a safari guide to provide you with answers to all your questions, tell you about each of the animals, and give you some information on the mass amount of research that goes on behind-the-scenes. Fossil Rim is filled with characters, many of which have no boundaries when it comes to motor vehicles coming there way. In fact, it's somewhat of an ice cream truck for them as they look forward to the treats you can hand out. There was Edith, the white rhino who miraculously conceived just last year (almost impossible as it equivocates to a 95 year-old human). She's the oldest known rhino to give birth on record and was even able to give milk to the baby rhino. You'll also encounter one of the largest wildabeast herds in the world, a friendly giraffe who doesn't mind getting up-close and personal, baby zebras playing alongside their mommas, cheetahs chilling in the shade, social deer and antelope, birds and so much more.
Be sure to take the kids to the Children's Animal Center which is always free, drop by the wildlife store, and don't miss the recently-renovated Overlook Cafe next door. Visit their Fossil Rim online for more info on pricing and FAQs. Fossil Rim Wildlife Center participates in a worldwide network of wildlife conservation organizations working to restore the delicate balance between people, animals and the environment.
