College students, military personnel, senior citizens and hotel employees with valid identification cards may receive discounts on the entrance tickets. Additionally, this attraction proudly offers free admission to members of the Wounded Warrior Project as well as their families or caregivers.
The ranch usually closes due to inclement weather, such as heavy rainfall. The staff members might need a day or two to clean up mud and other debris after a rain event. This attraction also supports various international initiatives that help wild lions. Visitors are encouraged to learn more about conservation efforts in Africa. For example, the ranch is affiliated with the Conservation International in Kenya.
