We had the best time checking out and feeding the animals! We bought a bag of food on the way in. The bag had popcorn on the top and feed in the bottom. The animals seemed to enjoy the popcorn more than the feed. However,...More

Love the fact that it takes unwanted, mistreated, injured animals that cannot be returned to the wild. The animals seem healthy and relaxed. Staff seem to care about the animals. 90 minutes does you to cover the place. Great for young children to interact. Ability...More

This place really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I were looking for a short fun day trip for our 5 year old. The staff are very friendly and so are many of the animals.

We came and enjoyed this a lot. Lots of animals to see here, we went to the presentation which was interesting. Took the train ride thing, fed the giraffe and a few other animals. Played on the small playground, enough for us for one day.

We spent about 2 hours checking out the animals, both walking through the different areas/trails and a safari tractor ride around the property. The informative and helpful staff really took our trip up a notch for me because they sparked an interest in my kids...More
