Laughs for everyone, animals everywhere. The camels become your best friend and come right into your space, what a great experience. Any age will enjoy this gem. If you are in the area make sure to take this one in!

Our grandson had a blast feeding the animals. And we were able to view a variety of wildlife from around the world. We would recommend this to everyone, it was a lot of fun.
