  • I have been going to killman zoo since I can remember. The best up close zoo. I love watching the cats swim in the pond as well  more »

  • This is a great zoo if you want a close up experience. Best time to go is for the 3pm feeding on Sundays to see the big cats being fed. Very interesting and great learning. Not a crowded zoo, great fo...  more »

  • My boyfriend and I went to Killman Zoo on Saturday as we drove by the sign on the highway and thought it would be a fun stop. It was AMAZING! The animals seemed to have plenty of room in their enclosures, and the staff was clearly passionate about what they did! The volunteers were super nice, and would talk to us about how much they loved to volunteer or about the personalities of each animal. Definitely recommend this place, and get peanuts to feed some of the animals as it was a really cool experience!
  • Thus place is amazing, got to sit and hangout with a baby Jaguar and these other baby cats, can't remember what they weren't called
  • I didn't see a man get killed and yet the Zoo was called Killman. False Advertising. Fake News.
  • This is not a Zoo.. It is a sanctuary...a little piece of heaven tucked away in a beautiful, natural setting. The animals look well cared for, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. A wonderful place to wander for a few hours; every turn in the path brings a new surprise! Perfect for children or adults with limited walking ability, as it is not too large. We loved it!
  • I have always felt very conflicted when it comes to going to zoos and seeing these beautiful animals in these enclosed and depressing environments. Killman Zoo does NOT fit that profile. If you come here, to your surprise you will see dozens of wonderful animals that are actively moving/playing and actually look happy. Over the years, I have become a regular at this place and during that period, I have gotten to know the owners. When you hear their story, you will learn that this place started off as an animal rescue to save these animals from some of the horror stories you hear of at some of those bad zoos/unfriendly homes for such creatures. Over the years, it has grown and then grown some more into what is now the Killman Zoo. They have tigers, lions, leopards, monkeys, porcupines, emus, lemurs, wolves, a bear, owls, and soooo much more. All animals have decent sized enclosures and get the attention and space they need to live a happy life. Most importantly, they have loving owners that actually care for these animals like their own family. You can buy peanuts to feed some of the animals you may see at a petting zoo or if you are really adventurous you can witness feedings of the large cats on Sundays at 3pm (I think). I am now a father of 2 toddlers and love bringing the family here. You can generally cover the zoo in 1-2 hours and will certainly get your money's worth in that time. If you have not already done so, please go check it out. Regardless how you may think you feel about zoos, this place may actually change your mind...
