Zoofari Parks owns and operates Virginia Safari Park, Gulf Breeze Zoo, and Alabama Safari Park, which collectively bring in more than 600,000 guests annually. Zoofari Parks recently purchased 900 acres in Kaufman, TX, and has begun developing Texas Zoofari Park, which will open to the public in 2023. With a focus on conservation through education and animal welfare, founder Eric Mogensen has dedicated his life to caring for animals worldwide. He has spent over 50 years mastering animal care and nurturing conservation programs to help at-risk species worldwide.
Our story began with the opening of Virginia Safari Park in 2000, soon followed by the acquisition and reimaging of Gulf Breeze Zoo and then the development of Alabama Safari Park. Our story will continue as we expand into Texas, keeping conservation at the core of everything we do.
