Love the zoo. It's one of the best I've seen. Don't miss it if you are in the area. Worth the money. It's a long walk through it , but is also disabled compliantThe animals are great! And assessable for everyone.

Love this zoo for small children, many features. Walk the paths, view the animals, butterflies and birds, plants featured. Baby giraffes were a delight. Hands on for some events. Zip line available, kayak available, train ride available. Plenty of critters, not exhausted when done.

The treetop trek was awesome. A little pricey but good for the money. Wish we could find coupons. The people were great and knowledgeable. The trek wad challenging and made for a two thumbs up from all three of the teens.

The natural settings and easy viewing and access make for an easy visit even for an old guy like me (70) They have added animals, treetop zip lines, attractions... More

Stroll on shaded trails. See rhinos from an elevated platform. Paddle your kayak through giraffe habitat, and so much more...
