A safari park is a zoo-like commercial drive-in tourist attraction where visitors can drive their own vehicles or ride in vehicles provided by the facility to observe freely roaming animals. The main attractions are frequently large animals from Sub-Saharan Africa such as giraffes, lions, rhinoceros, elephants, hippopotamus, zebras, ostriches, and antelope.

How to map

Create an area and tag it zoo=safari_park and tourism=zoo.

If you are not sure of its border you can place a single node in the middle and tag it zoo=safari_park and tourism=zoo but the area is preferable.

If given object has its own name then name=* is useful.

Use also drive_through=yes if you can drive through the park with your own car

Useful combinations

You can as well add many more useful tags described on tourism=zoo.
