My husband and I went, not really knowing what to expect. It was so much better than we expected. The safari goes on for well over an hour and the animals are amazing. The area it covers is unbelievable. The petting zoo is awesome. I love that you can feed the animals and I especially enjoyed the kangaroos. They are... More

This was the best of a 7 day road trip for my family, kids ages 19, 16, 10. This is a must see! The drive through zoo have animals walking right up to or next to your car. People ignore the do not feed part - which was annoying - then your kids want to ignore the rules too. They... More

It was a great afternoon, well worth the money. There is a lot to do and you can spend as much time as you would like there. So take your family, and your picnic and come here.

I love the drive through zoo! I have loved going there since 1997! Now that I have a child, it is just as fun. The animals come right up to the car. There is an option to buy food for them. There is also food for the family and picnic tables. The petting zoo is great with opportunities to pet... More

Saw the sign for this while going through Siloam Springs. Had a wonderful time. The animals would walk right up to the windows. Takes a while to go through the driving and watch carefully for the smaller animals(we saw baby pigs and baby rheas). Wish you could have fed them during the drive thru part. The petting zoo was nice... More

I took my two daughters and it was incredible. On the drive through the zebras, camels, emus & deer would come right up to your car. We also saw a hippo which was really cool. There were many more animals & the drive through took a full hour. At the petting zoo we got to pet giraffes and hold hands... More

I have to admit we were a little wary about a small drive thru animal park in NW Arkansas. We have been burned more than once with substandard attractions of this type that always seem to be overpriced. But finding things to keep your 2 and 6 year old grandchildren up here can be challenging. Don't hesitate...this will far surpass... More
