All reviews feed the animals private tour gift shop stick their heads safari ride free roaming animal food all ages school groups learn something lots of fun baton rouge new orleans wagon deer camel blast
This was a very rewarding experience that allowed close contact with animals while feeding them. It is definitely a family friendly environment. The grounds are very well kept. Staff members were very adverse in their individual expertise. There is also a gift shop for purchasing...More
We really enjoyed our afternoon at Global Wildlife Center. You can purchase a cup or larger of animal food to safely feed all the animals you meet along the wagon ride. But not the zebras! They get rather aggressive with the other animals. The ride...More
After a few days in New Orleans we needed something different to do and I found this searching the internet. Only an hour from the quarter, we thought we would take a chance as it reminded us of a similar experience at Busch Gardens in...More
We really enjoyed our time at The Global Wildlife Center. We lucked out and there were very few people at the time we visited (2pm on a Tuesday) - there were only 10 of us total on the bus. Our tour guide clearly enjoyed what...More
I've been to several of these drive-thru/ride-thru "safari" places, and this one is my least favorite yet! The folks are friendly enough, but it feels like a nickel-and-dime dog-and-pony show. I couldn't find much education, and very little conservation. They got a lot of their...More
We live only about 10 miles away but had not visited here. Very interesting and pleasant
experience, well organized. Animals were healthy looking and despite the heat no bad smells. Jasmine was a great tour guide, very energetic and seems to love her job.
We got the private tour and it was worth it! The animals are beautiful! They come up to be fed and it's really just a once a once in a life time experience. If you get the chance to go, you must! It was wonderful!
I have been here probably ten times in twenty years, and I always enjoy the visit and learn something new. The wagons make the heat bearable and the animals love to see them coming. The male fallow deer even burp after you feed them -...More
Hi! Five full days in Nola. So you think I should stay all 5 days in New Orleans or a day trip to Global wildlife Center in Folsom is worth it? Already visited oak alley plantation and did swamp tour in a past visit. Thank you!

Hmm...well, I have been to the Global Wildlife Center. It was wonderful, but we had an amazing guide who kept us laughing the whole time, so my wonderful memory might be in part to the guide we had. But, hard to say if it is worth going that far (about an hour each direction) Sorry I can't be of more help but we have done several of these at various places in the US, and they are always fun. If this was your first time in NO and you hadn't already done the plantations and swamp tour, I would...More
Private Pintz tour at Global Wildlife Center worth it? (0 Replies)
We are flying in for Mardi Gras and have an afternoon to kill before we meet up with friends. We are considering taking our daughter (6) to the Global Wildlife Center, but it's doubtful we'll be able to make the last tour esp. if we have a flight delay (and since we're flying from the North, it is pretty possible). We are curious if the Private Pintz tours are worth the extra money! We realize we would need to pay for four people even though there are only three of us. Anything else to see...More

Global Wildlife Center (3 Replies)
Thinking of renting a car and driving to Slidel for a Swamp Tour with Cajun Encounters. And then driving over to the Global Wildlife Center. And possibly a drive across Lake Ponch heading back to NO. We are only spending 4 nights. Would this be worth the time? Haven't found alot of info about the WIldlife center. Def want to do the swamp tour.

You may want to check on the wagon times for the day of the week and time of the year you are going as the wagons go out only at certain times...just so you can allow for your swamp tour and travel time to Folsom..actually the best times for the wagon is the earliest as the animals are all roaming around to get food...after a number of wagons and later in the day they are not so ravenous.
