We were looking for something to do on a nice spring day and went to the "zoo". At one time this was probably an OK place, but not now....unless you've never seen a goat skip it. The animals are kept in small run down pens, forget about natural habitats. The best part about this zoo was the swamp in the... More

Anyone that reviews this zoo as a good place to go has no concept of good animal care. The enclosures are absolutely pathetic and outdated. Animals need room to roam and clean water. This establishment should be shut down and the animals transferred to proper rescue groups. The only reason to go here is if you like goats. They must... More

So this place is definitely very old and a little run down, but believe me zoos are regulated and these animals are doing fine. WE go every year, buy a bad of the peanuts as you can throw them to moneys who will catch them in the air and shell them to eat, it is hilarious. I would give it... More

This place is a nice hidden gem in the hustle of MB. I had a great time and enjoyed seeing and feeding all the animals! Can't wait to visit again!

The mini horses hadn't drank water in it seemed like days. So I filled the trough with water and they drank it up so fast. I almost started crying it was such a horrible sight. The animals looked sick and sad and the cages were too small. I'll have nightmares about this place.

My husband and 4 children and I go to myrtle beach every year for my husbands family reunion. So before we went this time I checked some other attractions that would not cost a lot of money. When we arrived at this little zoo we first thought it was petting zoo until we got thru the doors and looked up,... More

This was our best zoo trip yet. You are actually close enough to the animals to see and hear them. We will gladly be back.

This zoo is a pretty decent size place and it seems like it gets a good amount of visitors. My family enjoyed the zoo for the most part but some "exhibits" had us bothered and looking at each other. I realllly think this zoo would be better off if it stuck with farm, petting zoo type animals. The monkey and... More

Nice place to visit. Lots of different animals to see. We bought some feed and enjoyed hand feeding lots of the animals. This is a zoo in a natural outdoor setting not the Riverbank Zoo. It is neat ,however, to get a more close up view of the animals that you would not get at some zoos. I would recommend... More
