Private jeep tour

Had a great private jeep tour with our daughter and grandkids. Had up close encounters with all the animals and especially with the giraffes. Would definitely recommend this tour!

We went on a Friday 10 am tour...When we drove through the gates to the car park we were already overwhelmed by all the animals roaming around freely. We were with our three children (4 years and 11 months old twins) and the lady advised, that we could either take the double stroller or the carseats onto the wagon tour,... More

This is an amazing experience for all ages. You can buy tickets for the wagon train or a private jeep tour and you will also need to buy feed(buy a bucket- you're gonna need lots and it's totally worth it). The train ride is about 1.5 to 2 hours (it's Louisiana and it's HOT so bring water)and the animals come... More

This was a great mini safari. We rode in the excursion wagon feeding and touching the animals The tour guide was very informative. Even though it was hotter than hot we enjoyed the up close adventure with the Giraffes, Zebras and a multitude of other animals. They have the best gift shop and dog sat for me while I was... More

We came across GWC on our way home from vacation. I am so glad we did. This place is amazing, the animals are awesome. The staff members were all friendly. It is well worth the price, be sure you buy plenty of food to feed the animals. We bought a family bucket and it was sufficient for the two of... More

We had a wonderful time!! We did a private Pinz tour and it was amazing and although a little pricey, well worth it:) there are almost 5,000 animals now after 25 years of Global Wildlife opening with under 1000 head at that time. The animals are very healthy and they are on a massive 900 acres of land. I would... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to get us up close and personal with much of the wildlife. Spring for the private... More

We have been here many times and love it more each time we go. You can walk around the gift shop and snack shop while waiting for your tour. The safari wagons are open on the sides and the animals stick their heads right in and eat right out of your cups! You do have to buy the feed and... More
