I can not believe this place is allowed to be open let alone have animals. The condition of the cages and enclosures were deplorable. It looks as if they haven't been cleaned in months. I have been to many rehabilitation and sanctuaries for animals and...More

Tickets are very affordable. Great place to come to get closer interactions with animals than you would at the local zoo. The safari has a very unique variety of animals! Also the staff is very informative of all the animals shown during presentation.

We chose this over a typical zoo because it offered a private tour where we could all hold and feed some of the animals. The kids loved it. We would definitely recommend.

They might allow service animals. But I dont know if they will allow your everyday run of the mill pet. But you may want to call them ahead of your visit to be sure. 305-238-9453
