Good and Fun!!
Nov 2021
Did the tour on Nov 6. Had lots of fun. Lots of animals and fun feeding them. My 2 year old grandson loved it and is a great spot for kids of all ages. You are right up on the animals, so close you can touch them.
I would suggest that you purchase a bucket of food.
Only issue is that we had a sick family member who could not come, and if you purchase tickets on-line, they are non-refundable. Still a 5 star rating.

Outstanding!
Oct 2021
Just 10 miles outside of Tickfaw, LA, this is one hidden gem. Covering 900 acres, this is a wildlife preserve for endangered animals, supported as a 501-3C. There is plenty of time to visit all the animal in wagons pulled by a tractor. A tour guide was excellent and provided color on some of the animals, both common and exotics. All had a great time. While it's a bit off the beaten path, its well worth the stop. VERY family-friendly.

Perfect experience for teen girls
Oct 2021 • Family
We had a great time yesterday. We enjoyed the ride to see all of the different animals. It’s a one hour and 45 minute tour that is definitely worth the price. The two young ladies that were out tour guides are very knowledgeable of all the different animals. Excellent experience.

Private tour is the way to go!
Jul 2021 • Family
This is an absolute must! I 100% recommend the private tour! The experience was amazing! Our kids (2 & 7) had a blast! I can see how people would be disappointed with the wagon ride, as it has to stay on the trails and hope the animals are near. The private tour is so different. They drive you right up to the animals no matter where they are for a guaranteed, wonderful, up-close and personal interaction with all of the animals. I also recommend the entire sack of feed... We were so glad we spent the extra on the private tour and more feed... so worth it!!!! We will be back! If you are going back and forth about the private tour, do it! You won't regret it.

Amazing place!
Jun 2021 • Family
Absolutely amazing place I can not say enough good things about our visit. We were delayed an hour due to a small storm in the area but we were fine with that. As soon as the storm passed our tour left and it was so much more than I ever expected. I highly recommend getting at least the family bucket like we did or spend a little more for the sack (but the bucket is more than enough). I wish we live l”-a lot closer I would come here all the time!

enjoyable day
May 2021
1st visit with my grandkids. A great way to spend a day with family and friends. Our private tour guide "Rebecca" had just returned today and controlled the entire tour professionally. Answered questions and provide unsolicited information making it a delightful day. Highly recommended for anyone, any age that likes or doesn't like animals. Bob Jean

Fun Wagon Ride to Feed Precious Animals!
Oct 2020
Amazing wagon ride to see and feed all the precious animals with my mom! Our wagon left at 2:30pm and we arrived back at 3:45pm. We got the Family Bucket which gave us plenty of food to last the entire ride. I suggest to get that if you can because it lets you feed the animals the entire time. There are over 3,000 animals including 1,200 deer. Clyde the camel, zebras, llamas, cows, giraffes, etc. The tour guide came on speaker phone and gave details about the Center. The wagon is covered so there was shade from the heat. Staff was friendly & helpful. The grounds were nicely kept. There is also a gift shop. My mom and I had a blast!

Best Day of trip
Oct 2020 • Friends
We went and did the private jeep tour with Emily as our guide. We had the best day and the facility is so clean and the animals appeared to be very healthy. I will tell anyone I can to go here.

Took 1/2 day afternoon vacation with my wife for the wagon safari tour 09/09
Sep 2020
I needed to burn up some vacation and we are not too keen on traveling far with current restrictions still in place. This is a great staycation stop in Southeast LA, and only about 30-40 minutes from Mandeville.

Due to limited seating on each wagon (picture of our wagon train is attached), for social distancing spacing, reservations ahead are probably best. We reserved spots on their 2:15 tour earlier today, there were probably 8 other people on our wagon, so plenty of space between us.

Today for us was $19/each. You buy cups or buckets of food separately to feed the animals when the wagon train stops, several times during the about 1.5 hour tour.

They have animals from around the world, my favorite is the giraffes, ( picture feeding some is attached);

I am attaching several pictures of Ostriches, kangaroos, zebras, and other young antelope/deer.

This is a great place for kids, my wife and I had a very good time - I guess we're just big kids.

Had a Blast!
Feb 2020 • Friends
As a group of 8, we decided to do the private tour. Our guide was super friendly which made the 1 hour tour much more enjoyable. We got the huge tub of feed and we had no problem going through it. We all.had a fantastic time even though it rained for part of the tour so dress for the weather and prepare to get snorted on and a little dirty!
