Lion Country Safari, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in western Palm Beach County, could be sold to an animal conservationist, a spokeswoman confirmed on Monday.
The drive-through safari and amusement park is still weighing the details of the sale — a deal that could be finalized late next month, spokeswoman Jennifer Berthiaume said.
“They are working through details,” Berthiaume said. “It is possible that it will be sold…We hope to know more by the end of July. Nothing is finalized.”
Berthiaume said Lion Country has had the same owners for 50 years, adding that the proposed sale could mark “an exciting time” for the park.
The list features the top 10 places in the world to view African wildlife outside of Africa. Lion Country took the 10th spot on Zoo Nation’s list — a ranking it is using to help draw out-of-town visitors to its drive-through zoo.
