Our family just visited there. A nice break from the beach. Nice shaded areas and picnic areas (you CAN bring food in). Kids LOVED feeding the animals (you can buy a bag of food for $3-6). Not a lot of bathrooms though. Cages seemed a bit small too, especially for large cats. All in all a cute thing to do.

I live in Columbia and we have a top rated zoo so I just knew I would probably be disappointed at this zoo. Boy was I mistaken! It was so completely different than most zoos. I've never seen so many peacocks running loose and the show they put on was worth the minimal cost of admission. They had lots of... More

This is more of a sanctuary than an actual zoo. We went and my husband said that he had his reservation but we ended up having a good time. Lots of farm animals and peacocks. Some exotics also. Husband and daughter fell in love with the monkeys. Need better organization and the way it's laid out. Saw several people cleaning... More

We stumbled upon the zoo on our way to another attraction and decided to visit. At first, we weren't expecting to enjoy it but the ability to feed nearly all the animals was a hit with our teen daughters. We enjoyed the scenic walk around the zoo which was well mapped out, and the staff was friendly and informative. One... More

I took my grandchildren & daughter & they really loved it. I was a little disappointed because they had some closures that were empty or cut off from the public & didn't have as many animals as I expected, but my grandchildren loved feeding the goats, deer & ponies. The zoo needs a little fixing up & more animals, but... More

Save your money!! The place was very run down, and dirty. The monkeys were in a box with glass, but the glass was so nasty you could hardley see the animal. The tiger den was a total mess, with standing water. They had old childrens toys hanging for the monkeys to play with, it just made it look like a... More

This was our second visit. Our favorite part is the migratory bird area. There are just hundreds of birds nesting, it is beautiful. You can see lion, Tigers, bears, many different monkeys, all kinds of snakes, lemurs, goats, bison, and the list goes on and on.

Its great zoo with with a wide variety of critters ready to be fed. Easy to get to,about 15 minutes out of Myrtle beach. They have lions,tigers and bears- Ooh My. The entrance fee is real resonable. I recommend it for the whole family.

If you are expecting something like the Atlanta Zoo or the zoo in DC, this isn't it. However, you can feed almost any animal they have, so it's fun for the kids. It's very 'rural' meaning there are dirt paths to walk on to get to the various enclosures and everything is a bit outdated and in need of repair.... More

This isn't a typical zoo with looking down into large enclosures or into glass. Its an older zoo with chainlink fences and wooden containment areas. The animals looked well fed and cared for and I loved that I was able to feed them myself! Its a fun experience and I would highly recommend it.
