Great fun little zoo with interactive exhibits, my daughter loved being able to feed the giraffes. The train ride is worth the extra money and is really neat. A fun stop on the way to the beaches in Destin.

This zoo was super adorable with many well taken care of animals. I was unable to fins any that looked sickly as other reviews have said. My nieces LOVED it, especially feeding the giraffe and llamas! It was a cute experience and I will definitely be going back here! The one complain is the price! It is expensive! Would not... More

We had a great time here. Lots of exotic animals, but the prices are a bit steep. The train ride is totally worth the money, and we loved feeding the giraffes.

We decided to take a day trip from Destin to visit this zoo! It took about 50 minutes to drive there from Destin! It was very interactive. You can feed the Giraffes for a small extra fee. My mother and son very much enjoyed that! The food in the restaurant was very good too and not expensive!

On arriving, you're immediately surprised by the relatively small parking lot. That tells you right away that it's not a particularly big zoo. But... admission prices are very reasonable, so go on in. You won't be disappointed. Watch out for the hidden extras. You will get fleeced on food for the petting zoo. But... if you look around, you can... More

The wait time for the train is a bit much and it was hard to hear the guide. This is a nice little zoo and it has a good variety of animals.

Fabulous for kids. We weren't going to take the time as we thought that being in a small city it wouldn't be much to talk about. I can happily say we were wrong! This is such a fun, up close to the animals zoo. It's like one big petting zoo! You have to be sure to get the bird sticks... More

Visited this zoo last year with my family. We enjoyed it and the prices were decent. Clean and enjoyable for the whole family. Must see if in the area!

This zoo is on 50 acres but they definitely make the most of it. There is a 30acre preserve towards the back of the park and most of it is only accessible via there train. There is a fee for the train ride but I would recommend it. There is also a boardwalk which will allow you to see some... More

Our family had a great time a the zoo. A lot of animals, many opportunities for hands on experience with them. We loved feeding the budgies, and giraffes. Bring some money for the train ride, it's the only way to see the hippos.
