A little piece of Africa right in Louisiana! My children loved this place and feeding the animals. You load onto a safari train and can purchase food to feed the animals. You want to attend on of the earlier rides when the animals are nice and hungry! the giraffes will literally put their heads right into the carts to eat... More

We got lucky with the weather they day we went; it was overcast with a little breeze. I could definitely see how doing this activity in the middle of the blazing summer heat might have a negative impact on the experience. The tours were running behind that day. We arrived at 1:20 pm thinking we'd be on the 2:00 tour,... More

This place was awesome. Remember to bring some cash on the tour to buy extra food. Best experience. Brian and Amber were awesome tour guides.

This place is amazing!! So much better than a zoo :) Since the park wasn't busy we got to go on the private tour. Our 1 year old loved hand feeding the animals as did we. The keepers/tour guides really know there stuff and it was great to hear about all the good work they are doing with the breeding... More

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!

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.
