With social distancing the kids needed an outing. For my 3 year old it was her first time at a safari park. She was in awe of the large animals coming up to the car. We had fun for a smaller safari park right here in Tennessee near home it was great. We went through twice it was included in price and visited the smaller animals too.

I was a little skeptical of this place as it's located in the boonies but l but I couldn't have been more wrong. It was such a nice adventure! We celebrated mother's day by riding through and had so much fun! The price is definitely worth it and you'd pay more at other places and not get the hands on action. Seeing the animals up close and personal as they stick their head all the way in your car is awesome! We will most definitely be returning!

My family and I have been here twice so far and it is always wonderful. The staff is always very nice and friendly. Reasonable pricing. However, it would make a lot more sense to charge per vehicle instead of per person. Will definitely be back again soon.

We did this with 6 kids of all different ages and adults as well. It’s a neat experience. The kids loved it! I did think it’s a little pricey. I paid $85 for 2 adults and a child, thankfully my other child was under 2 or it would have been $100. They did give us food free for the animals since our party was so large and that was very kind. The ride was beautiful and the animals were fun to feed.

This was the best time our family had in a long time. I HIGHLY recommend this place. We spent $60 for me my sister and my son who was 2, got 6 buckets of food which are large buckets, so totally worth it. We went around twice and had a blast. Love this place and would go 20 more times.

Absolutely wonderful time! Fun experience for both adults and kids! Petting zoo and drive with your own vehicle for other animals. You purchase buckets of food and can hand feed the animals. Your vehicle may get a little messy with feed as the animals are messy eaters but nothing a vacuum can’t take care of., Grandkids are already asking to go back and we definitely would!

Stopped by this safari zoo on our way to Gatlinburg. Staff were very nice. As with most safari zoos, there is a petting/feeding zoo where you can walk up the animals and the driving portion where you feed the animals out of your vehicle. There is not much variety in the type of animals. Mostly deer, elk, and bison but they also had a camel, zebras, ostrich, peacock, and few other animals. Don't miss the turtles around the water. Animals are not very aggressive and most will not enter the car window to get food. Since they do have horns, you can expect to get small scratches and/or dents on your vehicle. Seems to be par for the course with drive thru safaris. This is a fun event and a way to get up close to animals that you normally wouldn't be able to.

Fun for all ages. We highly suggest getting there at opening hours...And buying more than 1 buckets of feed!
I'd personally like to see more snack/drink options in the shop, maybe even some ice cream?

Every time my family and I visit Pigeon Forge, we always have to take a trip to the ranch. We’ve been here countless times and we never get tired of it! I love getting to feed many exotic animals that you can’t feed anywhere else. The animals are very friendly and adorable. Some of our favorites are the bison and zebras! Right now, there is a very cute deer fawn in the park and we couldn’t get enough of it! It was too cute! Highly recommend if you love animals. Will be visiting again!

I haven't laughed that much, and had that much fun in a long time. The ostrich freaked me out! But the animals are all so sweet and friendly. I came across this place by accident a few years ago and I honestly wish I could just live there !!! Highly recommend this experience for anyone and any age! I even purchased the cutest little pot bellied pig from the staff there 😊
