We are two adults...drove through twice. Camels tried eating my wiper blades. Emus definitely wanted inside. No...we have no food for you! Zebras were adorable. Two babies were jumping and playing with their mothers then took time out to nurse, then sleep. We got great photos! For the person who was "not impressed" and said "BIG whoop" regarding the zebras... More

My wife and I brought 3 children (14, 12, and a baby) to check out the safari. We are regulars of our local Zoos (Tulsa, OKC) but, in comparison, I really enjoyed Wild Wilderness. I felt the price of admission was fair and everyone had a good time. I think the older kids were doubtful at first but, as they... More

My son is 2 years old and loves animals. We drove through the property and he had a blast. We were told last time we came to bring a loaf of bread and throw it to the animals. That was his favorite part. The zebra stuck his head in the window and my son was able to pet him. All... More

My child loves animals! He asked to go to Madagascar! This was as close as I could get him. You drive through most of this park where grazing wildlife roams free such as deer, bison, yaks, camels, and zebras. Along the way there are fenced areas with baboons, tigers, lions, bears, wolves, alligators, hippos, ostriches, foxes, and a Liger. There... More

We have been to the Gentry safari at least 5 times a year for the last 10 years or so. We came yearly for years before that. It never gets old. There are always new babies and the staff is always wonderful! That rarely happens in a business but this is a family owned and operated sanctuary. They now have... More

Really enjoyed this safari that you drive through. Saw animals that you don't see in a zoo. We saw a zdonkey. They have a petting zoo and we got to touch one of my favorite animals, a kangaroo.

My teen daughter and I stopped here on our way to Eureka Springs for a Mother/Daughter get-away. It was out in the middle of no where but I'm so glad we stopped. It was fun driving through the park but our favorite part was feeding all the animals at the end! My daughter held a snake and rode a camel!... More

I love this park! I've been a few times now and there are always new animals to interact with. My favorite part this time was petting the kangaroos and baby fox! The drive through part is very entertaining as well! Great place for smaller children and adults!

I could write for days on this place. It was the highlight of our mini vacation. Drive through (4 miles). They have all kinds of animals. White buffalo, different species of deer, as well as monkeys, lions, tigers, bears, etc. After the drive through, we went through the petting zoo. Rode a camel, petted kangaroos. I highly recommend if you... More
