Awesome place! My friend and I were down south IL to pick up a baby goat for the children’s zoo we work at and she wanted to show me this facility! She used to intern here before Covid hit and it was really cool to see the place she talks about all the time! I love how they are growing and expanding constantly. The drive through was amazing and creative, and I liked all of the enclosures a lot. Great little place! 😊

We love it! I took 3 of my grandkids ages 6,5and 3. Riding in the open atv and feed the animals was the best part. We will be back in the summer.

We loved this place. It was extremely inexpensive. The diversity of animals was amazing. None of us had ever seen hyenas before. However feeding all the different animals at the petting zoo had to be our favorite. The drive through park was awesome too. Can't say enough good things about this place. We cant wait to go back in warmer months to take the behind the scenes tour.

Our family of four (daughters ages 8 and 10) had an amazing experience taking the Behind the Scenes Adventure. We enjoyed learning more about the story of how this place came to be and of course the animals that live there. My daughters love animals, as do I, yet I am often conflicted about animals living in zoo environments. However, visiting Aikman did not fill me with conflicted feelings. Although this family-run business doesn't label themselves as an animal sanctuary because that word means different things to different people, they take animals that need a new home - because they were previously privately owned pets and/or in need of better living conditions. Their animals are those who could not survive in the wild. All animals are "fixed" before coming to live at Aikman meaning that they don't breed animals. They only take on animals if they can provide them with a better life. We loved getting up close and personal with lots of different species of animals and of course the open air ride on a 4x4 through the drive through. The price may seem high but it's a sum that's easy to give knowing that it's going to the betterment of the lives of so many animals. As Thanksgiving approaches, I'm absolutely thankful for people like the owners of Aikman who dedicate their lives to provide a safe place for animals who can no longer live in the wild.

We went for the full backstage experience and it was worth every single penny. Our guide was very engaging and knowledgeable and she really did get us up close and personal with the animals. My 16-20 year old kids give it an enthusiastic 5 stars!
