Ready to meet the animal residents of the great white north? Parc Omega is one hour east of Ottawa and it’s a Canadian wildlife safari like no other!
At this 2,200-acre preserve, you’ll embark on a 12-kilometer self-drive safari where wild animals big and small roam freely.
As you hit the open road within the park, you’ll soon find yourself in the midst of some of Canada’s most iconic animals.
Majestic deer, regal elk, sturdy bison, beautiful bears, and graceful caribou all call Parc Omega home — you can see a complete list of the residents here.
And the best part? You can get up close and personal with these curious creatures by purchasing a bag of carrots at the entrance.
Roll down your windows and let the magic unfold as these friendly residents come right up to your car.
Don’t forget to bring binoculars for a closer look at some of the park’s more elusive animals!
And be sure to tune in to FM 90.1 during your drive to learn fascinating facts about the park’s inhabitants.

Before or after your thrilling safari, take a stroll along the one-kilometer hiking and snowshoeing trail.
This path leads you past Indigenous totems carved by the talented Algonquin artist Dennis Charette.
If you visit this fall, you don’t want to miss Omega by Night, an illuminated forest trail that lets you experience the park in an entirely new way.
And the adventure doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down.
Parc Omega offers overnight accommodations in tipis, tents, and cabins through the fall.
You can even spend the night in one of the special wolf cabins, where panoramic windows provide an intimate view directly into the wolf den.
Parc Omega’s peak hours are between 11 AM and 2 PM, so plan your visit accordingly for the best sightings.
For the safety of the animals (and yours), please leave your pets at home.
So, if you’ve always dreamed of running with wolves or roaming with bears, this is your chance to do so from the safety of your car.
