Wildlife Safari is a non-profit organization that serves a 600-acre (2.4 km²) safari park of the same name in Winston, Oregon, United States. Hundreds of species wander freely over the 600-acre (2.4 km²) park, which guests drive through.

Frank Hart, a frequent visitor to Africa, was the creator of Wildlife Safari. The park opened in the spring of 1973 and became a non-profit organization in 1980, and is overseen by the Safari Game Search Foundation. Wildlife Safari features 600 animals, including bears, capybaras, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, hippopotamuses, lions, and ostriches. The animals are given free rein on the grasslands, and are accessible for viewing by driving on a designated path. Wildlife Safari is world-renowned for its cheetah breeding program. The safari is also one of only two Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited facilities with hands-on elephant experiences in the country.

The Oregon, Pacific and Eastern Railway Company operates the "Uganda Express" a narrow gauge railroad in the Village area of the park.
