You can feed the animals

You can enter a cage and have little budgies fly on you. Kids will love that. You can feed some goats, pigs, giraffes, llamas. Lots of small monkeys. I loved the African Savanna... read more

The gulf Breeze Zoo is so much fun and relaxing to visit. The Zoo is well kept and the animals are treated so well.

This is a fairly small, privately owned (I believe) zoo. It seems to be well kept up and the animals well cared for. It is a really great zoo for smaller children because of the closeness you can get to the animals. Feeding giraffes is a lot of fun and the bird house is really great. Major league zoo fans... More

We took our youngest to the GB Zoo to see the animals. Nothing special and not sure we would ever return. The entry fee's were shockingly high, the snack bar under staffed and NO straws for your soft drink. (Staff informed us the they couldn't give out straws because of the animals maybe digesting one). Save your money and stay... More

I use to come here as a kid ALL of the time. But for some reason it looks like it's going down hill. The price is outrageous and honestly there isn't much to look at.

I loved the African Savanna - animals lived in large fields instead of small cages. You can only see the hippos if you take the train. She had a baby but we... More

It was a little hot walking around looking at the animals (about 80), but the shaded areas weren't bad. I think kids would enjoy this place. I loved the otters - they were my favorite. Adorable and very friendly. There were some piglets there as well - so cute! I liked seeing the lions and the tigers, too. It was... More

We just visited the Gulf Breeze Zoo on October 20th, 2015. My husband and I were highly disappointed at how many empty cage there were at the zoo and the lack of animals over all. Hopefully in time, this will improve. We went to see the new baby hippo and the only way to get to see any of the... More

This was my family's second trip to Gulf Breeze Zoo. It's always a nice attraction on those days you don't feel like beaching it. It's very family friendly with lots of animal interactions and chances to feed the animals. The train ride is also informative and fun as well.

This was our 1st time in Pensacola and we decided to take the kids to The zoo. We would definitely come back to visit. The kids loved being able to feed the animals. This was a really great experienced.

We normally visit the zoo in Gulf Shores. Our plans brought us to Pensacola for a day during this trip so we decided to give Gulf Breeze Zoo a try. This one may be farther but it is a million times better. Nice wide, concrete walkways. Shaded landscaping. So many varieties of animals, many I had never heard of. The... More
