I had some family, with little kids, in town visiting and we were looking for something to do. We visited Wild Wilderness in Gentry and we were all amazed with the quality and quantity of animals they had. I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

This is a fun place to take the kids and see all kinds of animals. The kids love the petting area and getting to feed the animals. A great family run park that takes pride in what they do.

I have been to the zoo so many times I cannot count them. Such a fun experience for such little money. They have a wide array of animals and seem to take very good care of them. I strongly suggest to visit the zoo if you have a chance. You will not be disappointed!

Man, this place is awesome. The drive-through part is very enjoyable, but definitely not the highlight. After you've finished the driving tour, you can go to the petting zoo, and it is AWESOME! We got to pet a llama, an emu, a yak, a wolf pup, and a kangaroo, along with various farm animals. The staff members we met were... More

It is a good place to visit with kids. Nice location , you will see only few animals very closely. Food stores are not available. Don't expect to be more wild and adventurous.

The Drive Through Safari is a wonderful place to bring the family. Upon entering, you park your vehicle and walk through a display area of many animals that can be petted and interacted with. The monkeys are a blast to play with. Park personnel are always present and helping and are always happy to speak with the public about the... More

First, grab a loaf of bread. It will come in handy for critter food. Then head to the monkey and baby lion area. Then head into the car and SLOWLY drive through the park. They state KEEP WINDOWS CLOSED. They say that for insurance purposes. Roll em down and prepare to see the animals close up. I mean CLOSE. A... More

Take your camera! You will drive through a number of pastures that have all kinds of interesting animals! There are big cats (in caged habitats), a hippo, various kinds of deer, camels, foxes, lemurs, and many more. At the front, you can also park, buy food, and walk into a few different petting areas to feed animals. They so many... More

Ive been to the safari many times since I was a lil girl. I now take my children. I've enjoyed it everytime. I will suggest morning is the best time to go before it gets hot. We love to go in the springtime when the new babies are born.
