Get up close to our animals with the Monster Bison Bus and you can also see exotic animals like Tall Boy & Patches (our giraffes that will actually eat out of your hand!) and so much more!Our Petting zoo has a variety of different animals. With rabbits, turkeys, pigmy goats, pot belly pigs "Lucy" the miniature cow, "Bucky" the fallow deer, and some miniature horses. With the addition of our very own Turken Frisel, the petting zoo has become even more unusual and exciting. These are only a few of the animals that we have in our petting zooThe Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo is proud to be the home of the White Buffalo "TUKOTA" (Too-ko-ta). A white buffalo is considered by the Sioux Indian tribes to be the most sacred living thing you could encounter.

My 1 year old loved going to see all the animals. He loved getting to feed the buffalo and watch all the other animals too. There is a playground for when we got done with the tour and he could have played a while.

My husband took my daughter, son, and niece here while I was stuck in a conference, so this review is second-hand, but my daughter and niece are STILL talking about this place 2 months later. They loved seeing the buffalo, feeding the goats and other animals, doing the zip line, and shopping in the gift shop. They bought beaded Native... More

We needed something to do for a few hours due to an unexpected stop in town and ended up here after looking at the slim options. The buildings were all very nice. The gift shop had the usual options as well as ice cream and drinks. We paid fourteen each for the bison tour and admission and it was worth... More

The tram ride buffalo tour costs extra and leaves on the hour with the last tour one hour before close. This portion takes 50 minutes and has two stops to allow you to feed buffalo and goats. While driving around you hear some general information about the animals and historical information about the park. This portion was ok. The petting... More

The price of admission is reasonable for the interactive experience that you get. There is a nice little gift shop when you first arrive with drinks available but no food. You can buy food for feeding the animals here and you will also have opportunities along the way in dispensers. They offer a trolly ride around the park for an... More

There are buffalo, zebras, monkeys, giraffes, and much more. I took my son here about 15 years ago. Our guide said that is about the time Elvis (the buffalo) was born and he is still there today.

Disappointed with some of the animal homes. Some are in old zoo styled cement floor cages with bars. Some animals have room to run and move but not all are that lucky

Had guests from Norway visiting and did a tour of the park. All ages (8-68) enjoyed the adventure. Availability to pet the animals and feed giraffe was outstanding
