  • My daughter has an obsession with otters and Franklin has an area you can hold animals including otters for an extra charge. That's the main reason we went. This is a family owned animal park, friendl...  more »
  • Great safari tour. You are up close to the animals and can feed them. The kids loved feeding the giraffes, monkeys, and all the animals. We paid for the guided tour. It was worth it so the animals did...  more »

  • I enjoyed the driving aspect of the park, but was so saddened by the enclosures. Several enclosures were littered with red Solo cups. Many of them looked too small for the monkeys, otters, flamingos, etc, and even had rusty metal fixtures in them, which I can only imagine hurts the monkeys' hands and feet in the hot summer. It didn't appear that there were any trained professionals caring for the animals, especially since the baby room was being overseen by a 15 year old boy. I know many safari parks in the US that act as rescue, rehabilitation, and preservation centers for wildlife, but this place is just exploiting exotic animals for business. The animals don't appear to be mistreated, but they don't seem happy at all. I wish Texas and the US had stronger laws regarding exotic animals. Also, this place has been issued warnings by the USDA and PETA for it's treatment of it's resident animals, but I think this place needs to taken over by professionals who will truly care for and provide adequate space for the enclosure animals.
  • We had so much fun! The animals will eat right from your hand. The camels will come right into the car for the food. The giraffes are awesome and feeding them was amazing. It was a good time!
  • If you happen to be driving between Waco and Houston, this place is a must see. Search for Franklin Safari's on youtube and you will find several nice videos people have posted from here. I can't do this place justice describing it. Kids love this stuff.
  • I want to give this place 1 star because of Something terrible I had to witness but over all the experience was good. it's a really fun place to go. My husband and I were looking at the monkeys when we notice one of the monkeys laying in the ground dead. We couldn't believe our eyes... We immediately went to the workers and told them. One of the guys came out and grabbed the monkey and told us she was very old. I didn't believe the story. He then carried her away. I wanted to cry. I hope to God they treat these animals right. There's no reason we should have seen a dead monkey. It was awful to witness. I want to go back so desperately but I'm afraid they might not take care of the animals very well. If this didn't happen, I would have given this place 5 stars because over all I had a very fun time.
  • An amazing place to get to interact with animals. Bring hand wipes because your hands will get messy from all the slobber from feeding the animals. You definitely want to buy the food there so that you can feed them. The baby room was amazing because you get to hold baby animals be prepared they bite! A definite must-see and worth the drive.
