For what I paid to take my family of 5, I expected more.... I don't know what, just more te guide was great, and made it as interesting as possible. But if we hadn't been sitting right next to her, I could have just as well gone to sleep. The same group of animals followed te wagon for the too-short... More

A bit of a drive but well worth it. At first it appears to be just another drive through farm, but I would highly recommend it especially with younger children. I advise all kids to use the restroom before you leave the center for the tour. Also, make sure you buy plenty of food for the animals as it is... More

We took our four year old and he had a blast! It was so much fun! The staff was very courteous and informative and feeding the animals was a blast! They have a very nice spacious and affordable gift shop. Also plenty of picnic area as there can be a long wait at time due to the fact the safari... More

Wow, wow, wow. I don't know how I never knew this existed. We should be talking about it. Animals are roaming the land freely just like nature intended. Everything from cows to giraffes!! 1 took my parents and 3 kids, and all of us from age 8, to 41, to 67 loved this place.

It was a fun excursion for granny, two 40 somethings and the15 & 6 year-olds. It was 90 minutes from Petal, MS where my children live or one hour from New Orleans. Their web site doesn't do it justice. They should have a video/photo contest to get a better representation of the experience! Be sure to wear layers in winter/spring... More

This reserve of 900 acres of savanna-like acres certainly provides both entertainment and education for visitors. It does seem odd to see giraffes, bison, llamas and various antelope bounding about in Louisanna. We were toured about in Pinzgauer vehicles and given a big bucket of dried corn kernels. While we had fed some animals, others like zebras we made sure... More

I went here with my 2 year old son and some other children. This is a great morning/afternoon activity with young kids. Everyone, including the adults loved it. The kids get to feed hundreds of different animals and get really close to the animals, including being able to hand feed a giraffe and llamas. This is a cool place for... More

This is a great place to take visiting guests. We went a few days ago with 2 twenty somethings (we are active fifty somethings). We all had a good time. For 4 adults plus a bucket of feed it was ~ninety bucks, but getting the large quantity of food was well worth it. The animals were all over the place... More

Took my 3 year old and she loved feeding the giraffes! The tour guides were very good and made sure everyone had the opportunity to feed the animals.
