The pandemic really has us spinning last year. We are a family that loves to travel and our traveling was cut short because of Covid-19.
Even though we did some traveling while remote learning, we still didn’t do our usual zoo visits, play dates and theme parks. We mostly focused on backyard activities and having road trips within Arizona, like Sedona and Flagstaff.
Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Sedona and Flagstaff is the best drive thru Wildlife Park in Arizona, Bearizona. A drive thru is perfect for this pandemic situation. You can see the most beautiful animals of the world right at your fingertips, crossing the streets in front of you.
It is surreal.
Bearizona Wildlife Park
Bearizona Wildlife Park is located in Northern Arizona, amongst the Kaibab National Forest in Williams, Arizona. It is one hour south of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim, 30 minutes west of Flagstaff, and three hours southeast of Las Vegas, NV.
Who Can Drive Through?
Bearizona drive thru wildlife park is approximately 160 acres. The park can accommodate most modes of transportation, including cars and RV’s. We drove through more than three miles of Ponderosa Pine Forest. As you drive slowly through the lush forest, you will see North American animals in natural habitats.

More animals are exhibited in Fort Bearizona, a beautiful 20-acre walk-thru area. We saw live music and there was plenty of space for the kids to run throughout this “zoo” type setting.
There are many animals roaming around Bearizona like the black bear, White Bison, Arctic Wolf, Rocky Mountain Elk, African Crested Porcupine, and one of my favorites, The North American River Otter. There is a portion of the park where I saw beautiful jaguars up close.
Bearizona is a member of the Zoological Association of America as well as the American Association of Zoo Keepers.
