Unsure if you want to visit Darby Acres Farm or Darby Safari;

*Our recommendation is to begin with a farm tour. 

If you would like to schedule a farm tour and a safari tour for the same day, please allow a minimum of 2 hours between your tour times. (example:  10am farm tour & 12 pm safari tour)

*Please note, that doing both tours in one day, especially during the heat of summer, may make for a long visit for many people, particularly the little ones.  Please take this into consideration when scheduling any same day tours to ensure you and your group can have an enjoyable visit!

*NOTE:  Our exotic animals are not located at the farm. 

If you would like to see the exotic animals,

Please keep in mind, when you are choosing your boots/foot attire and dressing yourself, and/or your children, that you are visiting animal grounds. It is recommended that you check current weather conditions to help properly prepare for your visit. Comfortable closed toe shoes (Please NO Flip-Flops), layered clothing, hats, sun block, water cooler, full water bottles, and hand wipes are some of the items that you may want to consider when preparing for your visit.We recommend not wearing any attire that you are worried about getting dirty. If your child will be participating in pony/horse rides, please dress appropriately. (No Skirts) A low pony-tail, and hair free of hair-barrettes, hair-clips, bows and ribbon, is recommended for pony rides for a comfortable fitting helmet.
