Don't expect sidewalk viewing of lions, tigers or great apes, rather friendly interactions with the feathered and furry. Visitors can purchase animal feed items, such as parakeet sticks, and watch as the colorful birds land at their fingertips; feed cups to hand feed giant watusi and gentle llamas on the safari wagon ride, or bottle feed little lambs and goats. Roer's Zoofari also holds a "Creature Feature" at 10, noon and 2pm where guests enjoy an informal animal meet and greet with a parrot, ferret, alligator, snake or other small animal.

Pros: Easy to get to on weekdays from VA suburbs. Free parking. Petting zoo was a huge hit with my 2 year old. Being able to feed the lambs and goats made her day. Ability to pet the bunnies was fun for her too. Budgies...More

Been there 2 or 3 times and it's going totally downhill fast. Plus there have been news that they are not taking care of the animals. There are much better places to spend your money and day at.

We go to Reston Zoo couple times in the season. The kids love that they can pet and feed the animals. We always enjoy the wagon ride.

I love how we get to interact with the animals ans it's a nice view. The animals appear to be very nice and don't mind. The beautiful landscape completes the fun.

Wonderful experience for a toddler make sure you take the wagon ride and get enough food to share with all the animals.

We were there mid day and it was pretty warm but the animals were all very willing to interact. It was a lot of fun.
