  • I always grade with value in mind also, not just on the appeal of the attraction. And I exaggerate not a bit when I tell you this is a SUPERB value. My teen boys loved it and the exhibits were educational and not exploitative in nature. In fact the facility is run by the Chatham Co. Public Schools system. There were bison, wolves even a couple of bald eagles. For $5 a head this was an exceptional value. My 16 y.o. even got in for $3. Yes, you read that right.
  • The employees were wonderful. The exhibits were pretty cool. The downside for me was that it was not very handicapped accessible. I use a knee scooter and could not use it on many of the dirt trails between exhibits. I would not have made it if I was not able to walk a little bit.
  • Great family fun. Savannah's zoo!! Ready for it to reopen-my wife and I miss our weekend walks.
  • Beautiful nature trails. Great for a adventure with the children or just some time with yourself to enjoy nature. Loved all the animals too
  • A wonderful place to take a relaxing walk on nice trails, while learning about the animals that can be found throughout the trails. A great place for kids and adults.
