I really love the train ride here , you get to have the animals come up to you to be fed . Then you get to feed the giraffes and camels . You do not get to experience this just anywhere . My son was so amazed with this experience. You also get to interact and see many animals !... More

We were given free tickets with our Kalahari hotel room. I enjoyed the closeness to the animals. The Wild Life Show is worth staying for. Visitors can learn about the different animals and touch the sloth, non-stinky skunk, tortoise, ant eater, snake and other animals. The pig races were sarcastic and silly. Patrons can walk through the park and feed... More

We had free tickets to visit from the Kalahari and we were pleasantly surprised! Our 3 and 6 year olds loved looking at all the animals and feeding them carrots. Lots of big and small animals in a clean well maintained park. Some more signage (info about all the animals) would be good but I'm sure it's a work in... More

We received free admission tickets with our resort stay. I would not have been happy paying a full price admission here. It was still fun as we did buy food to feed the giraffes and other animals. It is really small in comparison to Milwaukee Zoo and more expensive.

Gene from the office took our call and was very helpful. A real nice zoo with lots of animals. We spent the day there. Wrist bands allow you to come and go all day. Stroller friendly. Kid's loved the parakeet encounter and my little boy just flipped over the ring-tailed lemers. Well worth the time. Some things are over priced... More

The updated park will nickel and dime you. First, the animals' food that you must buy to have the full experience, then getting on the train has gone up considerably. If you can walk it, do it. I could not with a disabled person.

Truthfully, I wouldn't have gone to this if our hotel hadn't given us free tickets. I am so glad they did! Went with my 15 and 16 year olds and this has been one of their favorite stops by far! Such an interactive zoo! The staff is friendly and informative. The animals are nice and close up and you can... More

We went here because we got free tickets from staying at the Kalahari Resort. I'm happy we didn't have to pay the entrance fee because it would have totaled around $70 for the five of us and even though the animals were fun to look at, the park seemed a little on the thin side. Not much content for the... More

It was very got and humid when we visited on Sunday but the kids (19 and two 12 year olds) love animals so we went. First of all it was about $95 for 5 of us because like most places now, 11 and up are considered adult for some reason. Thinking ok it's expensive to care for camels and giraffes... More

We got to feed Giraffes...that was so awesome. We got tickets from the Kalahari resort when we checked in. We stayed a couple hours and saw all the animals. We did take the train ride, but think that was a waste of money.
