For the past twenty-two years, Hollywild Animal Park in Wellford, South Carolina has opened up its 100-acre safari from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day for their annual Hollywild Lights Safari. This unique holiday experience allows visitors to drive through the open range area of the park accompanied with stops to feed the animals and motor past millions of dazzling holiday light displays. Given it’s vast territory they decided to make a small playground in the middle of a track for you to walk your dog, it’s all set to promote outdoor activities involving animals. Money raised during the event goes to care for their resident animals throughout the year.
