Feeding experience with grass-eating animals
In Nasu Safari Park, you can feed freely to grass-eating animals like elephants, giraffes, and so on. You can see them closely and touch the long nose of an elephant or the long tongue of a giraffe. These are a little bit different experiences from ones in ordinary zoos so not only children but also adults will enjoy it!
This park has a Touching Zone where little children can enjoy. They can touch and feed rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, and ponies. You can interact more closely compared to Safari Zone.
Nocturnal animals hardly move and mostly lay down in daytime. In Nasu Safari Park, you can see such animals moving actively in the Night Safari. This Night Safari is held mainly on weekends from spring to autumn.
