753 reviews
Though charmingly romantic by day, Savannah becomes altogether spookier after sundown. Discover the city’s macabre side when you embark on a nighttime, ghostly walking tour, illuminated by candlelight. Meet your costumed guide in central Savannah after dark, and discover its historical squares, cobblestone streets, moss-draped trees, and even its cemeteries. As you go, learn about the city’s scariest ghost stories, unexplained happenings, and chilling characters.

I made an online reservation. This wildlife center wasn't yet busy with visitors when I arrived shortly after it opened. I walked the trails for exercise and to enjoy the plants, animals and the forest, salt marsh and pond ecosystems. Very pleasant though a little chilly. I made sure I knew where the restroom was before I started my trek.

Nice little place to spend a few hours. Admission is very inexpenisve at 3 dollars a head. Online reservation system is actually great. I wouldnt want to go here when it is crowded ( more on that later) , and the online reservations means less people. Pull up to the entry shack , we were greeted by an extremely nice, helpful lady . She not only provided us with a map and very good directions, but even told us , without us asking, where the bathrooms were located. Always good to know when you are about to go on a long walk and just drank ice tea. She was so informative and welcoming, it really set a great tone for our day. The first thing we noticed was the massive amount of gopher tortise burrows. This was amazing to see, as this is a very illusive and endangered species . The buildings are quite beautifuL The main center is not open due to covid,however the gift shop is, Not alot to see in the gift shop. There are 2 baby alligators and a snapping turtle in tanks on display. The trails are very well maintained. Loads to see and explore. My only 2 disappointments were not abot the facility , but about the people also using it this day. Rude, nasty Karens and wine mommies, not watching their children. Standing infront of enclosres not looking at the animals or reading the many informative signs but having load conversations about what sounded like highschool drama. Kids running rampant. One woman was infront of the bobcat enclosure, making idiotic meow sounds, then announces, they need to get somebody to make that cat come out , go find someone that works here. Her friend stated " this is the worst zoo ive ever seen" My daughter and I eyerolled and said "Its a wildlife rehab and preservation not a zoo. Its cold , the alligators and torts are in burmation and the bobcat probably doesnt want to come out because your shreeching at it" . We continued on the trail. The wolves were stunning, as were adorable flying squirrels. This place has loads of informative signage, with kid friendly print and colors. The bees were quite neat, and the farm animals were , well farm animals.The aninal enclosures were all very well maintained, clean and the animals well taken care of . We spent little over 4 hours here, and will def be back for spring. Really quaint place, with loads to do , and great history. I highly recommend it. Just be ready to encounter some Karen's in the wild. They were plentiful, in yoga pants with designer bags, not paying an iota of attention as their spawn trampled the place . Dont let that turn you off. If you are into wildlife , endanger species , beaufitul trails and amazing staff , make an online reservation and go, you will be pleasantly surprised. If you are lookng for a traditional zoo head to Atlanta or Columbia. .

Visited early Dec. Had place to ourselves. Strolled slowly for 3 hours around the grounds. Nice walking surfaces and boardwalks. Great for all ages. Most was in shade, a bit breezy more on the marsh, but lots of wildlife and then joyed the diverse trees, trails, and information. No food available, one restroom by farm animals. A must do. Time slot Reservations & payment required..lots of slots.

We enjoyed our afternoon at Oatland very much! We walked along the trail enjoying the local plants as well as the animals. There aren't a ton of animals but it's laid out well and the walk is very peaceful. The people who run it are very nice and the gift shop is cute!

Coming from Florida, we knew the animals would be similar but we really enjoyed the rustic walking trails to see all of the animals. Seeing the cougar so up close through the plexi glass was awesome. As everyone says on here, remember your bug spray (the strong kind), we had the family Off spray and it's not quite strong enough.
