It's a zoo,which after many years of touring zoos,I have come to think maybe we should treat our animal friends a little better.I liked the natural nesting area on the river much better than any of the caged animals in the zoo itself.However the golden pheasants were quite beautiful to see.The larger animals were bored and pacing and a lot...

Went with my husband and 4 year old niece. It was a great afternoon for all of us! It was super cheap for the three of us. Admission, in addition to renting a wagon and buying a big bag of food to feed the animals came to $30. Defiantly will be coming back and recommend it for all! It's about... More

We go to this zoo every trip toMyrtle Beach. If you are used to big time zoo, then this is not for you. lots of animals and a nice walk around. Everything outside. Walkways are abit uneven but are kept clean. You get very close to animals. Will definitely go back. Family run.

Most of the animals in the zoo seemed to be asleep. We would have liked to have seen them more active.

Big place takes a couple of hours if you don't sprint though it. Some of the enclosures seem a little sad but the more open spaced one's are great. Loved the aviary and the alligator was still on the same embankment as last year. There's an antic car exhibit there too. Love all the peacocks, there were so many.

I was skeptical about visiting this zoo due to reading reviews on tripadvisor. We ended up going because of my love for animals and we truly enjoyed it. I think some of the living condition for some of the animals could be better and improved. The animals seemed ok and we enjoyed seeing them. I think improvement can be made.... More
