This was a fun experience for any age. You definately want to include either the trolley or jeep tour. Make sure you buy feed before you go through the walking portion of the zoo. Well worth the time and money.

I'll admit, I was a little skeptical before my group arrived in Tupelo last weekend, but we had a marvelous time, despite the heat. I expected to see a few buffalo and go on our merry way, but that is just a small piece of what the park has to offer. We enjoyed watching the Lemurs, birds, snakes, horses, and... More

This was definitely my favorite place to visit in Tupelo! I'm a huge animal lover and was amazed at the variety of animals they have. Especially the Tigers which were my favorite. We also got to see the Buffalo and Zebras up close and feed them. Such a cool experience!

Were not sure about going here because of other reviews, but we wound up really enjoying the morning spent here. As a family with 2 teens and one elementary age, they all enjoyed the horseback riding, zip line and buffalo tour. The staff was friendly and helpful. The buffalo tour guide was expectional - full of information and very friendly.... More

When we researched what to do in Tupelo and found the buffalo park and zoo, we were a little surprised to see how small the park was when we arrived. But after we got in and did the buffalo tour it was surprisingly fun and entertaining. You get to feed the buffalos on the tour too.

The staff were not really helpful and it seemed really expensive for what it was. The place was full of school groups which kids didn’t seem to have any consideration for anybody else (that’s obviously not the Buffalo farms fault) We were going to have lunch there but there was no café onsite even though it said on the web...

Took our two children there while visiting Tupelo. Is a smaller animal park but a great stop while in Tupelo. They have a variety of things to do from horse and pony rides to feeding the animals. Our children loved the ride out into the pasture to feed the bison and other animals...including the camel! Very nice children's play area... More

The play areas for the kids are nice. Hey had fun on the pony rides. The ride on the bus around the park was very informative. But, seeing the animals, like the lion, in very small caged in areas is disheartening.

This is the worst zoo I've ever experienced. Took the family and basically paid over 50 bucks for my young kids to play on the playground. Not that many animals. Cashiers are rude and annoyed to have guests. Only perk was the lady working the pony rides was very good with my children.
