  • Kind of a crazy place. Its not like any other zoo I had ever been to. Its kind of trashy but after the exsplination you understand that a lot of the animals are rescue animals and this was their last ...  more »
  • Great local zoo! We live close and I'm ashamed that it's taken us so long to visit. We had a great time today and the zoo was so much larger, and more personal than we expected. The staff is very friendly and interactive. We decide to do the "extra" animal experiences and it was well worth the money. We fed the lemurs (gentle and friendly), fed the hippo (highly recommend) and that is one happy hippo. At the very least you want to buy food for the petting zoo. Plan to spend a couple of hours here. We will be back.
  • Before I went I thought it was a small zoo with not many animals, but there were so many that we didn't make it to all of them and we were there for 2 and a half hours! The hippo was the happiest hippo I've seen pictures and in real life. Recommend hippo feeding. But not just the hippo looked happy the camel, lion, white tiger, and rabbits looked happy to! There is a great teenager voluntary staff. This place is great, if someone tried to shut down this zoo they would have mutiny on their hands.
  • Literally the coolest zoo ever. My husband and I stopped here while visiting family in Austin. It really is a hidden gem. It's small but there is a good variety of animals. We were the only ones there on a weekday morning. Unlike large zoos, the animals here didn't just ignore us. They were making all kinds of noises and were very active. The cockatoo said "hello" and even whistled at me. ;) The rural area and rocky trails made it much more of a natural and peaceful setting. The free roaming birds were really interesting to see. Nice staff. You can even purchase a cup of food to feed some of the animals. I chose lemurs. Seems like a one of kind zoo. Definitely recommend. So worth the 45 minute drive. I can't wait to return and see the new habitats they were in the process of adding!
  • Just spent another beautiful morning at the Capital of Texas Zoo. The animals were particularly frisky and it was a joy to watch them being so playful. There certainly is a lot of construction in all directions.... but I see that as a sign that the owner's vision is moving forward. Don't expect a sterile, lab environment. It's more like a beautiful walk in the woods, with hippo and tiger sightings around each corner. Come with an open mind, and you're in for a magical experience. (and the new Hippo feeding experience is a "don't miss!!!!" We didn't feed the lemurs, but hope to do that as an add-on on our next visit)
  • Amazing experience! It's a little zoo that has up close animals. It allows you to either feed the hippos, Lemurs, or the crocodile! We did the hippo and it was great! Tang was resistant, but finally came over! The kids love how close they can get. It's not a large zoo, but I liked that. You get your fill for great price! The staff was very friendly as well!! A must see!!!!
