Aquatics

We have pools galore here at Safari Island. Our recreation pool is a zero depth entry, 57,000 gallon pool with a giant water slide and an elephant water slide for the little ones. Adjacent to our rec pool is a therapeutic spa for those in need of a little relaxation. Our 8 lane pool is for you to enjoy lap swim or free swim with diving boards at various times of the day.
