I would’ve given this a 3 star review if I was just basing it off our tour guide but the entire facility shouldn’t suffer over my lack of enthusiasm for one of their employees! My best friend and I have been guides ourselves in a...More

This is a fun experience where you get up and close vies of the animals. Our guide, Robert, is knowledgeable and nice. He also makes sure that all who want to ride on the top of the Jeep get a chance to do so.

This animal park is worth a trip--the staff is very friendly and enthusiastic. The safari tour is fun because the staff makes it so. The animals are very visible.
