  • Went this past weekend and loved every moment. My husband and I enjoyed a private tour and spent lots of time one on one with a baby cub, a wolf pup, a serval, a lemur, and tons of other critters (owls and snakes and gators and porcupines and hedgehogs oh my!) It was wonderful. The facility is clean and the staff love the animals, and have a great respect for them as well. I highly recommend this experience.
  • This zoo is amazing. Lots of great animals and the staff is the best. The owner Mario is the best he has been doing this for years. The presentation of this zoo is amazing and it’s also very clean. It’s a little pricey but you get what you pay for here. This isn’t the metro zoo
  • The family and I had a great experience at ZWF with Chris Metral as our tour guide. Not only was the tour informative and engaging, but the relationship between the animals and the guide left us with a one of a kind experience. The animals here are all rescues or donations and the staff clearly care about all the species in their care.
  • The park is very welcoming. The animals are well taken care of. It was a beautiful and interesting day. The staff was wonderful. There were some handicap issues that should be addressed, but they did do their best to help. Again a wonderful day.
  • This was an absolutely amazing experience, specifically the chimpanzee experience. Limbani was so friendly and engaging. I think I'll remember his hugs forever! The tour itself was also entertaining and informative. I really enjoyed the interaction with the animals. A MUST DO for animal lovers!
