The Wildlife Academy at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort was established in 2006, bringing together animals from all corners of the world. Our mission is dedicated to providing interactive entertainment and live animal programs with an emphasis on education and experience. It is also all animal, all the time! Visit the Wildlife Habitats which feature Billy Goat Mountain, red sheep, bison, tigers, lions, wolves and more!

Safari Tour | Hop aboard our safari cart and experience a behind the scenes, interactive look at some of our exotic animals. Get up close and personal as you begin the tour at Billy Goat Mountain where you will feed and pet various breeds of sheep, cows and goats. Marvel at the wolves, tigers, lions, and buffalo as you feed them their favorite treats. This interactive tour lasts approximately 1-1/2 hours.
Pony Rides | Pony rides for little ones are a Nemacolin Wildlife Adventure favorite and are under the close supervision of our trained associates. Rides are available by appointment only.
Wildlife Habitats | Wild animals are literally around every corner of the 2,000 acres that make up Nemacolin. Hop in your car, on a bike or walk the trails and visit with animals such as Anna the Buffalo, Keira the Bengal tiger or Beau, our mountain lion. You'll be surprised, we promise.
