I took my family and its a very nice family fun outing The length of the tour is an hour an half which is ideal, could be a little bit shorter The ticket is a little bit over-priced but it's a donation and they said it is tax deductible The kids enjoyed feeding the animals a lot, we had 2... More

We had an awesome time at the Global Wildlife Center. We loved feeding the animals especially the giraffes and llamas. Buy at least 2 cups of food for each person or buy a bucket.

The Safari Wagon tour was very enjoyable and quite the hit with the young children who get to feed the animals as they come up to the wagon. The tour lasts around two hours and the cost of the tour is quite reasonable and for a worthy cause. This is one of the only places I have been to where... More

Global Wildlife is a 900 acre facility with thousands of free-ranging animals -- deer, antelope, zebras, giraffes, camels, llamas, etc, but no dangerous animals. Customers are hauled around on a wagon train pulled by a tractor. The driver stops often to let the passengers view, photograph and feed the animals. A guide provides helpful information. It is a very good... More

Visited the center with my family and grandchildren, they had a blast feeding the deers, zebras etc...Having the animals so close up was priceless seeing the sparkles in the eyes of 3 and 2 year olds.

he large sprawling property would make for a perfect animal sanctuary. But the Global Wildlife Center is not an institution of conservation. They have animals that are supposedly living a "natural" lifestyle, but there is nothing natural about animals constantly following wagons to eat biscuit treats (or corn if you splurge on a private tour) from peoples' hands. The staff... More

Just got back from Global Wildlife Center.The tour was well worth the cost it was $17 for adults and $11 for the child. Everyone had a very good time we got the bucket of feed and it lasted just to the end of the tour.

Basically you pay them for the privilege of feeding the animals here. They sell you food before you get on a wagon train that is pulled around a hot dusty field by a tractor and the animals all run over to be fed. Hundreds of deer, a couple of zebras, a few giraffes, something they call "beefalo" and a couple... More
