Get up close to our animals with the Monster Bison Bus and you can also see exotic animals like Tall Boy & Patches (our giraffes that will actually eat out of your hand!) and so much more!Our Petting zoo has a variety of different animals. With rabbits, turkeys, pigmy goats, pot belly pigs "Lucy" the miniature cow, "Bucky" the fallow deer, and some miniature horses. With the addition of our very own Turken Frisel, the petting zoo has become even more unusual and exciting. These are only a few of the animals that we have in our petting zooThe Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo is proud to be the home of the White Buffalo "TUKOTA" (Too-ko-ta). A white buffalo is considered by the Sioux Indian tribes to be the most sacred living thing you could encounter.

From the advertising we expected a large herd of buffalo. However, the owner is reducing it for other zoo animals, in this respect there are only aprox 35. So no large herd. We... read more

Great place to visit with kids. Great place to have your kids birthday party. We love the bus ride around the park.

We took a trip out west all the way to Utah and saw many beautiful sights. We never did see one single buffalo. We made a brief stop in Tupelo and discovered that they had some there. What a wonderful place! We were given a close-up tour by Nick. He drove us through the pastures and we were able to... More

Stumbled across this after our holiday plans changed. Had such a great day here, as an animal lover you can see the animals are in good health (although the tigers need a new home which I was informed is happening soon across the road) excellent experiences feeding the giraffe and the buffalo and zebra and the numerous other animals. Would... More

One of our friends recommended stopping by the Buffalo Park & Zoo during our short stay to Tupelo. He knows the owners, Dan and Sheila Franklin, through his work. It's been a long time since we visited a zoo, and we thoroughly enjoyed the variety of animals that live at the Tupelo Buffalo Park & Zoo. Our bus driver was... More

This is the worst place ever. The cages for the animals were filled with feces. A snake was dead in the cage. The rudest staff ever..when you could find them.. please don't take your children there!!!!!!!!

I went to a birthday party here and then a company outing plus work nearby and drive by often. It is nice to see all the animals out in the open for the most part and can appreciate God's creatures. Some like the Buffalo remind you of the history of our country and what once was. It is a good... More

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!
