You cannot miss this. Talk about a visit to other continents, well you'll see it here. Does not matter what time of the year, there something for everyone. Just to let you know, you will return time and time again. Very knowledgable attendants, super friendly and everything you would expect. Great location.

We went the weekend after Thanksgiving. The weather was freezing and rainy for much of the day. We did the village/walking part first before the weather got really bad, and enjoyed seeing the petting zoo animals, lemurs, and other critters around the loop. The place is very well laid out and easy to navigate. We opted for the giraffe feeding... More

They do a real nice job presenting wildlife in a semi natural habitat. It seems like the special programs have waned a little bit in recent years, but if you have a family it is a nice outing.

This is one of our 'go to' places when we have out of town visitors. The drive through the park is interesting and there is a nice variety of different types of animals to view from different geographical areas. In the heat of the summer, go in the cool of the morning for best viewing, or at feeding time (for... More

I may have picked the perfect time to visit this place. At the end of a hot dry summer on another sunny day in Souther Oregon. The drive through portion of the trip provided a large number of great photographs of large collection of animals. It is a very wide open area with many animals sharing the environment the varried...
