It was really fun.... My kids loved it. The only thing I would advise is to take the private tour if your kids are looking forward to petting the giraffw. They did not come to us, but the private tour will drive to them. I would also advise making sure it's a nice day because if it thunders or lightning... More

Had a blast with the family! The giraffes were just amazing! Kids and adults had a fun time. Guide was very knowledgeable of the animals. We took the private "pinz" jeep tour and I'd say it was well worth the upgrade. We drove right into the groups of animals, no waiting for them to come to you. We bought a... More

Your adventure starts when you pull in the driveway! The grounds are teeming with animals that you can not wait to see up close. It is very obvious the staff love their jobs, as they show you with their enthusiasm, knowledge, and just plain love of this place. You get to feed animals, learn a bit about each of them,... More

This was a truly unique experience for me, my wife, and our kids (aged 5, 9, 11, 13, and 17). Sure, it is a little pricey, it was a two hour drive for us to the site, it is hot in July, and my kids have been safely isolated pretty much all summer in air-conditioned, indoor comfort -- plus, they're...

My 6 year old, my 60+\- year old aunt and mother ALL enjoyed our little safari adventure. My mom was able to ride her powered wheelchair right onto the covered wagon without issues. We opted for the bucket of feed which was plenty for us to feed the animals throughout the ride. We will definitely go back to visit!

Our family had the best time at the Global Wildlife Center. Feeding the animals from covered wagons pulled by a tractor was wonderful. We purchased the sack of food and my kids and I had a blast. Make sure you bring a camera becasue the zebras make great photo-bombing pictures. The zebras are the only animals that you cannot feed... More

Took wife, adult daughter and 2 year old grandson on a spur of the moment on July 9th.Thunder and rain delayed our 1 o'clock tour to 2:15. The good thing was it was cooler after the storm past. The animals came right up to the covered wagon train to eat corn out of our cups. Tour lasted about 90 minutes.... More

My daughter (6), niece and nephew (7), my brother, his wife and I visited here a few days ago. We bought a sack of food for all of us to share, and we had plenty of food. The center provides cups for you to use, and you want to have more than your group. My daughter had her cup stolen... More

Who knew that such a place existed? This place rocks! You can feed all kinds of animals such as deer, antelope, alpacas, llamas, giraffes, and zebras. Most of them you can feed straight from your hand!
