when we first entered the zoo we were the only guests here. I now know why. The animal cages are dirty, no access to clean water for drinking. The trails are full of garbage and cigarette butts. I was really disappointed with our experience. They have a lot of unused property and should in my opinion make more room for... More

I went here last weekend with my family and it was very cheap and perfect weather. It is ALO(T of walking and some of it is worthless. However, it is nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle,. The people that worked there were very nice. I am alittle concerned for some of the animals (tiger, lion)... More

The animals are in very small enclosures and it was very depressing to see them. I will not return because of the depressing nature of the place

This place is so amazing. They have such an extensive amount of animals and they staff is so friendly. Big space :) The price for entry is very cheap and so is the food to feed the animals. Me and my husband are from Florida and came on vacation. They also have snacks and all kinds of souvenirs. If we... More

This is one of the neatest places I have ever been. The people that work here are so friendly, and you can tell they really care about the animals. The peacocks are a sight to see. They have a wide variety of animals, and every thing is very up close and personal. It is very inexpensive too. We can't wait... More

my 3 kids loved this! Even though it was cold out, we were so involved in the animals, we hardly felt the chill. Lots of interaction with feeding the animals, and staff were very nice. Lots of walking, and we got turned around once, but they do provide a map.

Surprised at the size of the zoo and variety of the animals here. Went with a 3&2 year old. They were able to walk the whole zoo and see all of the animals. Think with the number of trees it might also be good all year long. Staff was friendly.

I loved this zoo. It wasn't crowded at all and my boyfriend and I loved the up close experience. It was a memory that I will never forget. I did however feel sorry for the animals there (the conditions of their habitat). Their cages were incredibly small and it didn't seem like they had a lot of room to move... More
