First time at the zoo and it was great. Well maintained, lots of animals to see. Friendly staff. The kids enjoyed feeding the peacocks that roam freeing around the zoo.

It is absolutely true that the cages for the Big Cats and bear are appallingly small and sad. But, I was very impressed and pleased with their large rodent collection. Now before you balk at that, look up cavies. I've never heard of this species before and they are just too adorable. They also have agouti that I find to... More

We loved seeing the animals and it was reasonably priced for us to go. Our special needs son who is 3 loved seeing the animals as compared to a large metropolitan zoo. They had wagons to rent which we loved. The zoo is in need of repair and we felt sad for the animals in the cages. The bears cage... More

I read the reviews about this zoo before I went to Myrtle Beach and was very hesitant about going there with my three grandchildren. We decided to go and see for ourselves. The children loved feeding the goats, sheep, chickens, peacock, and ostriches. Those animals were in clean cages with food and water and appeared to be cared for. They... More

Conditions for animals were horrible especially the tiny habitats for bears. It was cruel how the large cats couldn't take more than 2 leaps across their cage. In one deer pen there were multiple females with open wounds. Poor conditions and poor care

My family loves zoos. This zoo however had some of my children in tears because of the state of the animals and how mistreated they looked. The lady at the front desk at noon only had one bag of food left. The animals appeared hungry and disheveled. I would not recommend! It is a sad sad place!

Very large variety of animals! They had a long nature trail as well that you walked over water and could see boats on the river very close. Our sons favorite was the many peacocks that were roaming around the premises freely. All in all it was a great experience and very affordable

Price was good, but they may need to increase the price a bit and provide a better environment for the animals. We visited a couple years ago and decided to go back again this year. Probably will not return again. The trails are shaded and nice. Trail by the river and the bird estuary were very nice. They have old... More

This can hardly be considered a zoo. The animals are in extremely small living quarters. Most of the animals were pacing back and forth, with chunks of hair missing, and had empty water and food bowls. This is in no way humane, and I feel awful that I gave money and contributed to these animals being treated so poorly. This... More

The zoo was not huge, but you could see all of the animals in one day which was a plus. Our girls loved this zoo. We purchased a large bag of peanuts at the beginning of the day and were able to feed the animals, which the kids loved. The oldest who is 13 said this was the best zoo... More
