We went to Sharkarosa on Sunday 9/15/2013 and got there at 1030 before most people (not that there were allot) and beat the heat. This is a neat little safari place. It had a bunch of Lemurs and a small petting zoo. The black bears had a back story and were entertaining for a few minutes. The safari tram ride was good where as everyone can pet zebras, camels, donkeys and some Clydesdale Horses. They even have a couple of zebra-horse cross breeds. You can see and pet some baby animals as well that they bring out for talks.
I would say the price is a little steep for the 2 hours that we got out of it but they do good work for these animals with some being rescued. The animal feed for $2 at the petting zoo was way too much for the dixie cup size they give you. I know it is for the upkeep but geeze! Put it in the entrance fee than. Just like bag fees, nobody likes that.
All in all nice little visit though. I would say however that we could have done without the guy doing the weird voice while narrating the tram ride. It made things hard to comprehend over the screaming children.
Note that this place is not handicap accessable and the bathroom facilities are port a potties.
They did have good places to sit and eat a sack lunch in the shade. I guess they have a pizza place as well open during public viewing on Saturday and Sunday but we did not try it.
