Oakland Island Wildlife Center gives you an opportunity to walk through nature without the dangers. Nice pathways and boardwalks take you through a maritime forest with animals indigenous to Savannah's coast. We recommend taking a couple of hours to explore.

This was a great part-day trip. It took about 3 hours to go through. Good deal for what you pay for. Lots of walking but handicap accessible.

This teaching zoo is a great place to spend a couple of hours. The shady trails make it a pleasant stroll. The wolves were not out when we went though.

We really love visiting Oatland! It’s definitely worth the small admission fee!! There’s a guided trail to see animals and wildlife. It’s an easy walk with plenty of shade. We bring lots of water, bug spray, and binoculars when we go. I highly recommend!

Pleasant outdoor surprise. See some local wildlife in a small park like setting with nice trails. If you follow the trail guide completely, you’ll do a two mile walk.

Oatland Wildlife Center is one of the best family experiences in Savannah. It's much more than your average "zoo." There are all sorts of animals, including a petting zoo, but the setting is the best part. A historic building is the centerpiece, and the well-marked...More

Yes. They have trained Wildlife specialist on site would be glad to give demonstrations. I would suggest calling ahead to find out what exactly they have and what times.
