“Very fascinatings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We like to go by there when we visit Savannah. They have a variety of animals they rehabilitate. Some stay on in a habitat that is very much like their natural one. We enjoyed watching the panther play with his ball. We got to see the foxes on this last trip.

“Neat little place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We enough a warm afternoon here. There animals seemed content, the scenery is beautiful. The main building was nice and the little gift shop had a very friendly cashier. It is not the grandest place in Savannah but it is a nice clean area and something different for the kids to do. The wolf room was good and the vultures were a big hit with my family :) this is by no means a zoo, so don't expect a lot of exhibits.

“Fun place to go with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We went here on our last day of our trip to Savannah, mostly to have something to do outside. It's out of the way and very peaceful and there are lots of animals to look at. They have nice walking paths as well. It was a little buggy. We had fun feeding the turtles and fish. We weren't able to see the Cougars but the Bob-Cats put on a great show for us pouncing on one another. And the wolves where pretty awesome to see.

“REAL LIVE ANIMALS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This attraction belong to the local school district. They bring children to the center to let them see live animals, plants and farming.

Although some of the exhibits were closed, the experience was still very good. I especially enjoyed the Bobcats and Red Foxes. Some of the enclosures for the birds have such heavy mesh wire that you can't really see or photograph the subject.
