When I was in 6th grade we went to a drive through safari in Canada for girl scouts so to find one close to me was super exciting. We drove there and the drive through was nothing what i expected it to be. It didn't look much like an african safari but the buffalo are funny putting their big ol'... More

We had a great time here! I loved driving through and feeding the animals. The buffalo were a little scary, but were harmless. The alpacas were really funny to feed and watch bombard your car and others. The staff are very good about herding them away from your car when you wanted to move forward. The giraffe was really cool... More

You drive through the park and are able to feed the animals from your car window. They come right up to your open window, stick their nose in and eat the food pellets out of the large cup that is provided. There is also a very nice walk around zoo. My wife and I both felt that it was a... More

Fun feeding the animals. Got some funny pics through the sun roof of the giraffes. Walk thru zoo was interesting. Had never seen a gryphon vulture. Coupon at the Casa las Palmas for one free admission.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience. We had a wonderful feeding the animals during the drive-thru portion. The buffalo sticking its head through the window was by far the best part. I was concerned about some of the animals in the walk-thru section, especially the ocelots and the spider monkeys. They are housed in cages that do not give them... More

This genre of animal interaction entertainment is something we find interesting. There are other places that deliver a bit more. But this is where you interact by feeding. This park requires some patience with both humans (drivers) and animals. You will feed predominantly herbivores. If you like feeding animals then this is your stick. Remember this is not really a...

Loved the entire attraction. Started out with the walk through safari then traveled by car through the rest. The animals come right up to your car which the kids absolutely loved. Was worth the money.

My family and I went through this park and had a great time. We fed giraffes through our sunroof and a buffalo stuck his head into our car to get more food. What a great experience for our family!
