Lake Tobias Wildlife Park has more than 50 years of experience bringing visitors up close and personal to exotic animals and thrilling safari tours. Our self-sustained, family owned and operated business is proud to welcome over 170,000 patrons each season to experience life on the safari and witness an array of beautiful creatures living in the great outdoors.

Open Air Safari
One of our most popular attractions, the open air safari, is a favorite of young and old alike. When you join one of our tours, you jump on our open air safari bus which takes you over 150 acres that are home to buffalo, elk, European deer, Asian deer, and many other animals. Be ready for animals to come right up to you! The 45 minute long tour covers both pasture lands and wooded areas, and you can see more than 500 mammals and flightless birds throughout the tour.

Opened in 2011, our reptile and exotics habitat building gives you the chance to see a variety of beautiful creatures in man-made habitats that reflect their original climates. With educational presentations throughout the day, you will learn what makes these animals tick and even get the opportunity to touch a live alligator!

Petting Zoo
Including African pygmy goats, alpacas, llamas, and much more, our petting zoo offers a variety of friendly animals that kids and adults can get to know, pet, and feed. The petting zoo booth sells cups of carrots, food pellets, or popcorn to feed to the animals.  There are also coin-operated vending dispensers with various animals treats that your new creature friends will love.

Pennsylvania Beef Council

The Pennsylvania Beef Council is a non-profit organization working on behalf of 23,000 beef, dairy and veal producers in the Commonwealth. Pennsylvania’s 53,000 farm families continue to be the stewards of more than 7.7 million acres of farmland. With $7.7 billion in cash receipts annually from production agriculture, Pennsylvania farmers and agribusinesses are the leading economic driver in our state.

The Beef Council administers the Beef Checkoff Program in Pennsylvania, which assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. Checkoff revenues may be used for promotion, education and research programs to improve the market climate for beef.

The Beef Checkoff Program was established as part of the 1985 Farm Bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. States may retain up to 50 cents on the dollar and forward the other 50 cents per head to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, which administers the national checkoff program, subject to USDA approval. Internal links within this document are funded and maintained by the Beef Checkoff.  All other outgoing links are to websites maintained by third parties.  

Be a unified voice for our beef and veal partners by sharing their legacy of commitment with the families enjoying dinner with us.
