our story

Hello, I would like to start out by saying first of all my wife and I are very excited to be part of the Brainerd area and we are looking forward to meeting everyone this summer!

My name is Kevin and my wife is Kelly, we have two children Cheyanne who is 26 and Zachary is 19. Together my wife and I have over 55 years of combined experience in the exotic animal field. For the last 20 years we have traveled the Midwest with our petting zoos, camel rides, pony rides, pig races, and wild life educational shows, you may have seen us before at a local event!

But after all of the traveling we have decided that it is time to be in a permanent location. We have worked very hard and very long to build the collection here at Safari North Wildlife Park. Our dedication to our animals is second to none and we are very proud of the care they receive. It is our goal to provide our animals and our guest with the best possible experience, we hope that you enjoy your stay with us.
