My husband and I had an amazing time! It's like a little piece of Africa right here! The trainers worked so hard to make sure we were comfortable as well as the animals. It's super clean...... Totally would do it again!

This was a great place to stay! We LOVED Crunch time where we fed the cats, and Butch's Bedtime were we fed the elephants carrots. Those big animals are so amazingly beautiful! Such a great experience when we got to feed the elephant her breakfast! So sweet! Wish I could walk with her all day long! Was a little bit... More

My husband, myself and daughter went. We stayed in giraffe manor. We had a ball! We did crunch time, tucked the elephants in and did the pachyderm package. My daughter really enjoyed giving the elephant a bath! We will never forget our experience. Christy was very knowledgable And made the zoo too fun and educational! Hope we get to go... More

My daughter and I had an absolutely amazing time at Vision Quest. A truly unique experience. We brought in our dinner and enjoyed our meal while watching the sunset, couldn't be better. We participated with the Crunch Time and Bed Time experiences. Both were great, but putting the elephants to bed was by far the highlight of our trip. The... More

My husband and I went there to have some quiet time together. We enjoy the atmosphere of the quiet country setting. If you are looking for a complete quiet time you will get it if you don't mind the sounds of animals. For the most of it the animals were quiet through the night. Dogs did start barking around 8...

There is so much potential for this to be a wonderful experience. They advertise peace and quiet and encourage you to be quiet as well, however they board dogs and I fell asleep and woke up to the sound of 40 traumatized canines barking constantly. Nearly every staff member I encountered made me feel as though I was a burden... More

Stayed with the family over the 4th of July weekend in the Monkey Manor room (2 kids, 7 & 11). We did the tour the day of arrival, which helped acclimate us to the overall layout of the property (as well as introduce us to the animals). We sat out on the viewing platforms in the afternoon (bring warm clothes... More

My kids enjoyed it, but notice that the staff were not as pleasant or happy to be working. The roaring of the Lions were great to hear at night (all night). Watching the elephants and zebra interact with each other was also a plus.
