This place is amazing!!! Unlike any zoo experience I have had. The owners are so invested in the lives of their animals and it kind of reminds me of the movie"We Bought A Zoo". There are unique opport... more »

Nice, but the extras, like food for the animals, was overpriced. The animals appear to be healthy, and they show a fondness for the keeper. $10.99 entry for an adult , $10.00 for kids over 2 (a couple... more »

Place was absolutely amazing! How anyone can give this place a lower rating is just mind boggling. This place is amazing, the guy who runs it walks Around greeting people. The staff Are friendly and generous...the prices are dirt cheap! 1.25 for soda and waters, three dollars for ice cream!!! You won't find those prices anywhere this cheap! Lastly the animals are beautiful and active. I have been to Local zoos and never can see some of the animals....these animals are amazing and active.

Great place to spend the day with your kids. The Exhibits were awesome and very clean and safe! All the animals were full of personality and friendly. We had the opportunity to hear the apes vocalizations that could be heard throughout the park which caught alot of attention.The giraffes were a big hit with my 2yr. old daughter as well as the baby Joey red kangaroo. Also the canary house was a hit, its an experience like you've never seen. Will definitely be back again before summer ends.

Very cool private zoo. It is very clean and well maintained with lots of interesting animals. They have several species of big cats, including lions, tigers, a leopard, snow leopards, and soon cheetahs. They have black and grizzly bears, alligators, and a slew of other animals. They also have petting zoo aspects, where you can feed goats, giraffes, zebras and other animals and get up close to them. My kids liked the parakeet enclosure best. You can buy a feed stick, them go in and feed the birds, which will fly over to you and land on you. We did that three times. A little expensive in comparison to the Rosamond Gifford zoo, but well worth it.

My hubby and I took our 3-year-old today and she loved it! She had a blast feeding the animals and didn't want to leave the bounce houses! Concessions were reasonably priced and the park is well maintained. The animals were a lot more alert than other zoos we've been too. Will definitely be back!

This place is more than just a zoo! most amazing experience i have ever had at a zoo. Well maintained, clean, great staff and reasonably priced. you can take time to visit every animal; and its small enough that you can loop around to see them again incase they were napping. Also has a bounce house and picnic area!
