Loved this place! Loved feeding the giraffe and buddies! Went early but it was hot! People who worked there are friendly and helpful! The kids also loved the train ride as well as getting a safari hat with the kids meal!

We went to this zoo while visiting my daughter in Pensacola. It is a nice little zoo with plenty of shade for the hot days of the Florida summer. You can feed all kinds of animals, including giraffes (yes big, tall giraffes) for a very small fee. Perfect for young kids. All of the young'uns that I saw were having... More

We had a wonderful experience at the zoo. It is not overly crowded and you get to be up close and personal to the animals. My favorite part was hand feeding the giraffes!

What a great zoo! Very clean and the animals have nice exhibits. Neat train ride that the kids loved. Make sure you get the food to feed the birds. Super friendly staff! I had my grands that are 5-14 years old and they all had a great time.

The Zoo is a nice size, make sure you take the train ride, as you will see different animals up-close. I suggest you pay a little extra and get the food to feed the birds and animals. We had a great time and it really is beautiful.

the zoo is laid out well. There is a train you can ride to see additional animals that you can see on the walk through. They have some unusual animals for a zoo. Many of the cages were empty. You can feed the giraffes and llamas.

This is a small zoo, with lots of hands on. There are many animals you can feed and all of the animals appear to be well cared for.

Good place to take the kids. They do lots of seasonal activities throughout the year to keep going back interesting.

I had read some bad things in the news last week about the zoo. I have been coming to Navarre for almost 40 years and own a home here but had never been to the zoo. My grands are visiting so we went today. It was overcast and it sprinkled a tad but it was a fabulous day. Staff was... More
