Guests have the chance to visit The Wilds for 2022 starting in May. They will be able to enjoy a range of adventures at one of North America's largest conservation centers.
Those visiting the park for 2022 will have the opportunity to meet a number of baby animals. A number of the breeding programs at the park have been successful leading to the birth of four takin kids, eight Père David’s deer fawns, a greater one-horned rhino calf, two southern white rhino calves, and a Masai giraffe calf.
Over 30 species of rare and endangered animals are housed at the The Wilds on 10,000 acres of reclaimed surface mining land.

At The Wilds guests travel on guided tours. This season they can experience the Open-Air Safari Tour, presented by G&J Pepsi, provides guests with the opportunity to feel the breeze from an open-air vehicle as a knowledgeable guide drives along paths through vast pastures where species such as rhinos, giraffes roam.
During a Wildside Tour, presented by AEP Ohio, guests can experience up-close wildlife experiences from the back of a specially modified four-wheel drive truck as an Animal Management team member drives them closer to the action off the regular tour roads.
A range of specialist safaris allow guests to see animals from unique vantage points such as a zipline or on horseback.
The Wilds also offer the opportunity for guests to stay onsite in a range of overnight accomodation.
