Bearizona Drive-Thru Wildlife Park is an animal sanctuary in the amazing Ponderosa pine forests of northern Arizona, just 60 miles (96 km) from Grand Canyon National Park. Bearizona is the only park of its kind in the southwest United States and is the perfect location for your next family adventure!
In the comfort of your own vehicle, drive through Bearizona to see North American animals in a wilderness environment. Catch views of Rocky Mountain Goats, American burros (a type of donkey), majestic Brown Bison weighing up to 2,000 pounds (900 kg), Big Horn Sheep, Dall sheep (native to Alaska and Canada), stealthy Alaskan Tundra and Arctic Wolves, majestic white bison and, of course, the gorgeous black bears. The drive-thru portion of the park is approximately 3 miles (4 km) long, takes approximately 45 minutes and includes the use of a GPS device that will guide you through the route.
After your drive, get out of your car and visit Fort Bearizona, a walk-through area where you can stroll along the winding paths and watch the antics of the park’s baby animals and smaller species. Fort Bearizona is also home to the amazing High Country Raptors free-flight show, where you’ll learn about birds of prey and see them fly directly over you!

Bearizona is a great place, you get to see the animals roam freely as you drive your car through then you get to walk and see all the smaller animals in the park area.
Nice wildlife park, enjoyed the bisons walking next to our car and the important amount of black bears...
Being able to get so close to all the wildlife in a wide open area was phenomenal!!! Then to be able to walk around and see other wildlife was so much fun. There was a white peacock that hung out near snack bar, until toddlers went chasing after it.
The animals were out today and it was a beautiful day. If you go, be sure to take the Wild Bus Ride. The driver/tour guide gives a lot of insight that you can't get by doing the drive around. Our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed the day at Bearizona!
Visited yesterday, fantastic experience for animal lovers. Wonderful to see bears enjoying life, roaming free and playful. Lots of other animals also. Staffordshire were very happy and friendly. Good to drive through and recommend taking their bus also. Marvellous. Pleased they are rescuing bears from being in bad places of captivity. Highly recommend
Very fun we drove through the park and really enjoyed seeing the animals. Then we rode the bus and got to see them up closer and told some history of them and their names. Watched the show about owls. and walked around the area where you can walkt the kids especially liked the petting zoo part.
We really enjoyed this park, they were doing some upgrades so the gift store and some animals were not available but it was still great. It looks like all the animals are well taken care of and everything was so clean. The drive through was great even in winter, the bears came right by our car. And the buffalo, goats etc was close enough to see with no problem. The walk through was great too, they had 2 baby cubs that were right by the fence playing. You can really tell that the people working there really loved their jobs. It was so great that I can't wait to go back next time we are near there.
We saw Bears and wolves up very close! They were very well cared for and calm. It was absolutely incredible!
