Petting a Lion cub, a tiger and a black bear is an experience the kids will remember for a long time. Same for feeding a kangaroo or petting a raccoon and a fox. The deer, goats and donkeys are friendly but the sheep are too aggressive even for not so young kids (9 years old). Have to have an adult... More

Sometimes it's hard to see animals behind bars but these animals always appear clean, we'll fed and healthy. Stopping at this park is a must and never a disappointment. The baby animals for petting is a thrill and most of the staff is very helpful. Don't miss out on this sweet little house of animals!

Lions, Tigars and Bears... no really I pet them all (cubs of course) and held an opossum, two kinds of racoons I got to pet! Then also a fox and skunks!!! The only thing I wish was that the enclosures were bigger... but it was soo awesome to see the animals up close. What an amazing stop on our trip... More

I went here as a kid and wanted to take my daughter. The selection of animals is fantastic. My daughter got to pet a 3-month old tiger cub and a 1-year old red fox. There are deer, goats, and peacocks running wild around the park and will come up to you if you buy the food in the gift shop... More

If you like animals, this is a fun place to walk around and not only view but also interact with some animals. We got to pet a baby bear, which was a very memorable and unusual experience! When you are lining up to do the interactive animal petting event, stand at the left side of the viewing area to get... More

Don't be fooled by the less than impressive looking building from the outside. Inside awaits a pretty spectacular collection of exotic animals and you get very close to them. There are free roaming goats, donkeys, llamas and deer that are happy to eat feed right from your hand. The highlight is the animal presentations as you will be able to... More

Better than going to a zoo. I was afraid that the animals were being exploited but not really. It was the tourists that were being rude. It's not a rescue park but simply a wild game zoo that you can get up close to some of the creature. We asked lots of questions and all were answered. We learned quite... More

Best time kids had in awhile! Animals were friendly and brought joy to be able to get so close to them!

I went with my daughter, and had hesitation to go in, yet did anyways. The baby bear, lion, and tiger were on a chain to be petted. The cub had a scrape on it's nose, and when asked a number of times the "keeper"just kept saying it got hurt. The keepers were definitely told what to say and what not... More
