This is by far the cleanest, most well-maintained wildlife refuge in the world. It's beautifully landscaped and the animals are well cared for. Staff is excellent and there's food and a trolley if you don't feel like walking the entire grounds (though it's a great way to get the most scenic walk you'll find). The museum is awesome as well...

It was a typical zoo. No major wow factors. There were no shows going on as we were here in winter. I would walk it again in summer for the exercise and time with my child, but wouldn't drive to Salina just for the zoo by any means.

This is a full blown zoo, and a great place to take children. It's relatively affordable, has a nice facility with easy walkways, and of course the highlight is all of the wildlife.

This was an entertaining little zoo. Had a nice variety of animals to observe from Snow Leopard to flamingos to orangutans. There was a Vehicle you could get into and out of that would drop you off at different points around the park making this more accessible to people of all ages.

This is a fantastic zoo for it's size and location. I've never heard a bad report or negative comment, from anyone that has gone to it. I've been there on family outings, company picnics.The zoo has a large shelter house with tables. They catered a great meal in their conference center, for a company I worked for. We had people...

If you're near Salina & you have a couple of hours to spare, go to the Rolling Hills Zoo! It's not the largest zoo, but it it totally worth the visit. The animals and the grounds are well-cared for. It's a nice mile & a half walk around the park, or take advantage of the handy tram that stops at... More

There is a museum that has so many different animals with bits of info and where they live, if they are endangered, etc. Then there is the zoo part, it is beautiful and the animals are well cared for; as much of a refuge as a zoo.

For being smack-in-the-middle of Kansas, this zoo and museum is amazing. The grounds are lovely and well-kept, the variety of animals is impressive, the staff is very friendly. There is a tram which can be ridden in a hop on- hop off manner. The museum is also quite impressive. VERY well done. This Wildlife Adventure is certainly worth the admission... More

Come expirence a variety of animals up close. Paths and viewing areas get close to the exhibits so you can see everything up close. Well maintained and friendly staff. Zoo admission now covered in regular admission price. Very unique with animals preserved around the world in their replicated homes. Very nice conference rooms on site.
