We took our grandson here and we had a great time. We were able to see animals that we have never seen in real life. Our grandson really enjoys zoos and this was even more impressive to him. We also got to see babies and pet them in their barn. The train ride through the park gave us a totally... More

Where you enter the zoo is the worst part. There are not many animals by the entrance and it looks very run down and not appealing. As you continues on it seems to change completely. It is much nicer and more updated. There is a lot to do in the middle and the back of the zoo. Don't let first... More

You can get up close and personal to dozens of species from across the world, and feed many of the animals including giraffes, camels, goats, and more! It is WAY better than going to the average zoo. They even have an indoor area to view lions and tigers up close(from behind thick glass)!

Luckily our hotel gave us free tickets otherwise I would have been very upset at the $20 cost per person for this hour or less park. There was 6 of us so $120 is crazy for this small park. We thought it was strange when even the hotel employee seemed embarrassed to give us the tickets. But once inside you... More

We truly enjoyed our afternoon visiting the wildlife park! The show was great and had very unusual animals. We've visited many zoos around the country and some of these animals we'd never seen! We especially loved the two white tiger cubs! The bird experience was also very neat! We received complimentary tickets through Kalahari resort, so it was a great... More

This is one of the best zoos we have visited. My family consists of every age and stage from baby up through teenagers, and each one of us found something at this zoo we enjoyed. My husband and I saw animals we have never seen before. We were impressed with how all the continents were represented by the variety of... More

This zoo has a lot of animals that allows visitors to feed and pet. They are located toward the back of the zoo, so don't waste too much food in the front area when u see the first few animals that you can feed. The zoo does have a few species that we didn't see before in Chicago zoos. The... More

Went at a time when there were no crowds so we were able to spend as much time as we wished with each animal. Be sure to buy the "lunch box" feeding package, it was enough for us to feed most of the animals. Was able to be up close and pet/feed zebras, camels, giraffes, etc. The only complaint was... More

What an up close and personal experience with the animals. OMG. it was great. Even though it was October and the place was going to shut down in a couple of weeks, and they were starting to winterize everything, we got to see all kinds of animals and it was probably the cleanest wildlife/zoo I have ever experienced. The animals... More

We are a family of 4 with a 6 year old boy and 2 year old girl. We had so much fun. I have never been so close to lions and tigers ever. I live in the Chicago suburbs and we have some nice zoos but this was so interactive. We were so close to the lions we actually were... More
