I have been wanting to go here for a very long time. Global Wildlife did not disappoint. I am 53 and I enjoyed it just as much as the little ones. We sat toward the back of the wagons, however I think the closer you are to the tractor the better your chance to pet the giraffe. Wonderful trip.

The weather was gorgeous, and this was a fun way to spend 1 1/2 hours looking at the animals. For seniors, it is $15 per person, and then, of course, you buy food. It was fun looking at and feeding the animals. There were several "safari" wagons pulled by a tractor. We went at the 2:00 tour and this was... More

This was the closest we've been to these animals--they come right up to the wagons to be fed, and you can touch most of them, too. The place was clean, the guides were friendly and smart, and the price was a good value. We had a blast!

Kids really enjoyed this! Surprised by the herds of animals. It felt like being in Africa! Loved feeding the animals.

Ok this place is probably more for families with children but my mom and I had a blast. The safari ride is $17/person and you can get a 32oxz of feed for $2. The animals are wild but super friendly and always hungry. Especially the over feed geese.

We were so glad we made a point of going. The staff was great and safari was great fun! The animals even stick their heads in the open air wagon for you to feed them! Deer, Llamas, Alpacas,Giraffes, Donkeys, Zebras and more!

Especially for kids. They get so up close and personal with the animals. The giraffes reach right in the tour vehicle and eat corn out of your buckets. The zebra let you pour corn in their mouths - so funny that they are that used to it. If you can afford the extra, take the private tour rather than the... More

Been visiting several time a yr.for over 17 yrs. Always plenty of interaction with all animals. Then the greedy idea of $35. Per person pvt tours in a jeep means the large animal dont follow the train anymore because the jeep tours takes a few elite guest To THE BIG ANIMALS so they dont have to follow the train. So...

We had an excellent experience at GWC. The deer, giraffes, zebras, and lamas came right up to our tram. The children loved being able to feed and pet the animals.
