This zoo is a little small but I loved it! Grounds are very well maintained and the animals are obviously loved. The food was good and I liked the setup for the tables. Had a blast feeding the giraffes. Can't wait to go back.

First time visit and we did the groupon. We paid roughly 40.00 for 2 people and got 2 bags of goat food, 2 feeding passes, and 2 zoofari rides. We absolutely loved it. Definitely worth the money. The zoofari ride was a lot of fun...More
