We recently traveled to Williams, AZ to check out Bearizona. Bearizona is an animal reserve that you can drive through to see many animals including bears, wolves, buffalo and deer. You can also walk through some of the animal encounters to see smaller animals like foxes and bobcats. If you are looking for a fun thing to do on a day drive, Bearizona is a great place! Read more on our adventures to Bearizona, below.
Our drive started with getting close to the deer. We loved rolling down our window and watching their curiosity. They came right up to our car and we were able to roll down our windows and take photos and say hello!
The wolves were one of the highlights of our trip. We really haven’t gotten to see these animals up close before and watching them interact with each other was a great experience.
The buffalo were relaxing as we drove through their area.
We did get to see many bears but taking the photos through our car was hard and it was a cloudy day and they were napping. Looking forward to visiting when it’s warmer and we can see the bears out and about!
Walking Through Bearizona
When we walked through this area we saw many animals including porcupines! They were so cute as they nibbled on their food.
The river otters were also cute!
The bobcats were nice and cozy. Bobcats really do look like oversized cats!
We asked the foxes what they say and they just looked at us. I guess I’ll never really know what the fox says.
The baby bears were a highlight of our walk through. They played with each other the whole time we were there.
