Fairly small, but nice zoo. Staff friendly, enter through a decorated rustic house that opens to fields of scattered enclosures with free roaming deer and peacocks. Lion feeding 1:30pm would easily be the highlight and also the meerkat enclosure was a good size and layout....More

Staying at Pinnacle Valley, we decided to visit the Zoo,and we weren't disappointed. The surprise was that you got a bucket of food (optional from $2.50 to $15.00) to feed the animals. It's amazing how much feeding does to the visit. The White Lions are...More
