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

My husband and I took our 2 1/2 year old son on a Saturday morning and it was absolutely wonderful! All three of us had a great time! We purchased our tickets and debated on how much feed we needed and we settled on 3 cups. I wish there was a size right below the family bucket. We were fine... More

We detoured through Folsom on our way to New Orleans from Memphis. The center is off the beaten path but worth it. I suggest going earlier than your desired tour time. We were there on a Monday and it was busy. Also buy the bucket of feed. Our family of 5 needed more than a cup of feed for each... More

Went here on a field trip with my son. The tour lasted approx. an hour and a half. The children were given two large buckets of food per cart to feed the animals. They were able to feed the Zebra, deer, ostrich, giraffes and bulls along the route. The children seemed to enjoy it at first but the lack of... More

This was our 5th grade field trip. It is so much fun! Knowledgable staff and you WILL see the animals! They also have a great gift shop.

DRIVE SLOW when you are entering and leaving. Plan ahead. Expect to buy a bucket of food. If you go sparingly you can make it last the whole way around. We found the best technique was to hold the cup high and pour into the open mouths. Ibeks will steal the cup if you hold it low for them. Most... More

I visited with my 2 year old, sister and mother. It was an enjoyable time. I would have enjoyed it more if there were more types of animals. There were many deer, some zebras, a few lamas and some cattle. There were several kangaroos near the entrance gate. I was only able to see them from the car. Also the... More

We started our tour and THEN we were informed that we would not be able to get to the giraffes due to the recent rain. I understand the facility cannot help the weather, but I would have like to have be informed before hand. There were SOOOO MANY deer. They were everywhere. We saw deer, cattle, donkeys and a few...

Nothing to do for labor day so took kids here. Place is awesome well priced for what you get and is what expected to pay when you go to any attractions. There's a concession stand that's technically a snack bar because there like 5 things in the menu but nothing over $5 water cokes and juices are available for $2.50.... More
