  • We went there with our 4y old and had hoped that the animals would be in very big enclosures when not roaming around. But unfortunately the hippo, elephants, tigers and cheetahs were in tiny enclosure...  more »
  • Wow what a great place! My friend and I spent all day here enjoying the park and its animals. Yes you can drive through and be done quickly but we took our time and did the drive very slowly. After go...  more »

  • Amazing experience. Worth the long drive. Animals room feeling which gives you a great experience to see them up close. Bummed I couldn't see the tigers but other that it's great. Be vigilant of some people that don't follow the 10mph limit. Drive slow and take it all in. Will be coming back to take the camel ride and giraffe feeding.
  • I went with my dad and it was very good the animals are very well taken care of and treated good and very healthy and muscular And I myself liked the... elephants,monkeys, giraffes,rhinos,hippos,and the ostrich (and if you brought bread or crackers you get to feed it ).Another + is that you get to go wherever you want. You can roam free in your car. It's very worth the money
  • We drove a couple of hours out of our way to go here. No where on their site does it say that pets are not allowed. We had already paid and she saw I had a dog..we couldn't go in. They have kennels available to put your pet in, but my Yorkie doesn't stay in other dogs kennels. You don't know what animals have been in those and if they are sick. And my dog is super attached to me and would freak out if I left him. They did give us a refund but it would be nice if they posted that on their site. The girl was nice but I still don't get why if you are in a car why the pet can't go. Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing it.
  • One can go and enjoy a lot for free in the visitors center, petting zoo, gift shop, theatre, presentation area, special live animal display, restaurant and children's area. They also have guided encounters with animals such as elephants and giraffes for a fee. Finally there is the drive thru. If possible do this as a part of a group. Then you will have a guide which is very educational. If you drive through on your own, you will see all of the animals and will be able to take pictures. I strongly recommend using a zoom.
  • I have to admit that I was very skeptical before coming here. But my wife as she usually does convinced me and I really enjoyed myself. The animals were actually very entertaining and when you do the drive you get really close to the animals and some of them will even come up to your window which calls for a very great time. I would definitely recommend. You can also do an encounter which I would definitely recommend as well it is worth the money and it also goes to a great cause!
