This is a small, intimate zoo. Easy to walk around and get up close to the animals. The animals are well taken care of and their environments are clean and have shaded areas. Great value and great fun for all ages!

Fun being a kid again and seeing all the animals. Best time is evening during the summer months. Lots of cool animals. Camel rides if you would like. Otters are great fun to watch and the big cats are awesome!
