The mixed group of adults and children on our tour had a wonderful time at the Safari Park. The hands on experience with the birds, goats, camels and more are something not easily found near the St. Louis area so the trek to Cape Girardeau offered that opportunity. This is NOT a Disneyfied experience, but a true working farm experience.... More

Thank you for visiting the Lazy L Safari Park. I'm glad your bus tour guests enjoyed their visit to our zoo. It looked like everyone was really having a good time feeding the animals. Several guests did decide to ride the camel and I think one guest actually marked "riding a camel" off her bucket list! Again, thanks for visiting... More

They seem to really care about their animals. It's small but cheap and fun. Our kids enjoy feeding all the animals.

My husband was down for a bowling tournament at West Park Lanes....only about a 9 minute drive away. Very great value for the price. Great hands on feeding and petting of pretty much all animals on ground!! My children loved it!! :)

Kids had a good time but wish there were more animals. Little procrey for the size and very poor advertisements hardly anyone knows it exists.

We took a Sunday trip into Missouri after hearing about this place. I have never been to a more interactive petting zoo. The kids were enthralled for about two hours as they fed and hugged on various animals and rode the pony. My youngest was in awe of the parakeet enclosure. Wielding two popsicle sticks laden with bird seed, she... More

Love this place & what they're doing - breeding programs, etc. It's small, but staff is super friendly and helpful. More of a "petting zoo" kinda place - we finished in about an hour... took us longer to drive there. Great place, but wouldn't make a special trip

Had an enjoyable time today at this petting zoo. It is a little smaller than I expected, but there are lots of animals and a nice variety. We spent a leisurely couple of hours there. One bag of food was plenty for us, but it was mostly one child doing the feeding. We also bought a bird stick and went... More

This is a cute place for the kids to learn about animals. The peacocks roam free, the deer eat from your hand and the zebras stand tall on the hillside. I thought it was a little expensive at $7 a person (we had 5 people) so my wife just stayed in the car while the kids ran free. You'll have... More
