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).

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

Visitors have a couple of options one the bison bus tour which I assume was a bus ride out to the backside of the property to view buffalo. We opted for the $10 walk through which was a small area one walked through viewing monkeys, antelope type animals, one tiger and several kinds of birds as well as a reptile... More

I have been seeing things here & there about this place for a while. On their website, I noticed that there were several exotic animals in addition to the other animals there. So I thought it might be a good attraction for my children & myself. The website specifically mentioned (and still does) the exotic animals included a bear, tiger,... More

We visited the park and do not regret it! All the workers in the park were very nice and very helpful in the explanations. Being able to feed and touch some of the animals was a great experience. A great thanks to the buffalo tour driver who tried so hard to call the buffalo over that decided they weren't going... More

Great place for birthday parties. Tour the entire grounds on a bus. A variety of wild animals, more that just buffalo. Not too expensive.

I had mixed thoughts about visiting this site after reading reviews. What I think we need to keep in mind is this is one of the only opportunities for area residents to see some of the exotic animals. That doesn't mean the habitats/enclosures can be lacking, however. Let me start at the beginning. We arrived and purchased our tickets. received... More

Daughter enjoyed the animal feeding. Train ride was comfortable. Staff was very kind and knowledgeable. Some enclosures were quite small. Would have preferred to seen domestic kind of animals only as opposed to exotic animals.
