After reading the reviews I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this place but I did like it. They have an animal showing every two hours. Try to catch one if you can. They show you several different animals, teach you about them, and let you pet them if it's safe. Then they have a several "houses" that you can... More

We had free tickets from our stay at the Kalahari. I wasn't expecting much, and I thought we'd just check it out quickly and move on. We were here for about 3 hours and loved it all. I read some of the other reviews that were critical about the small cages, and yes, there are some animals in small cages,... More

Where to start? The horribly small cages, the fans taped to the cages in a hot building, the ticks I photographed on the mountain lion, the dead dried out Koi in the Koi pond or the sign advertising photographs with baby animals? Cant help but wonder what they do with the animals when they get to big to be in... More

This was my first experience at this park. Our whole family loves animals so this was a perfect place to go. It is especially great due to all the hands on experiences for kids feeding or petting animals. Food is a bit pricey and typical hot dogs/hamburgers. If you time it right you can eat outside the park much more... More

A very nice zoo, after reading some of the negative reviews I was leary. But I thought animals were all well fed and cared for. Cages were all clean and not small like some reports. I do think the " big cats" could use a more stimulating enviroment. But I have seen them in smaller cages in other city views.... More

Very enjoyable day spent here! Many animals to see and many to interact with. The staff here are excellent..particularly enjoyed the announcer at the pig race! Feeding the giraffes and camels a highlight for us, but it was sad to see the animals enclosed in small and possibly inappropriate enclosures..ie, cement floors with very little bedding in the petting zoo...

Cages for the big cats are very small and not too close to a natural environment. Beyond that they and the park seem well taken care of. Some of the large birds seem stressed out??? Not busy at all but it was Monday. I hope they can succeed so they can continue to care for the animals. Very friendly staff... More

Don't let the outside fool you. This park goes way back. There were so many animals you could pet and interact with. this was a highlight of our trip.

I'm an avid animal lover and enjoyed seeing different animals than I have in the past. However the cages need some serious help. Most of them were about the size of a bathroom with pretty much nothing for enrichment. These should really be improved to mimic their natural environment. If you bring children, be sure to watch them!! I noticed... More

Excellent time feeding the giraffe, baby kangaroo, camels, birds and pigs. PLEASE be aware of what animals can eat which foods. The animals appear healthy and active. Some of the enclosures are small but they are clean and all had food and water. This place was clean with the exception of the bathrooms. We purchased our tickets on Groupon which... More
