Enjoy the twice daily Elephant Swim, Pets' Corner, "Nature boy" Scenic Railway, "African Queen" Boat Cruise, Discovery Centre and Jungle Playground Areas.

“Gorgeous animals”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We enjoyed our visit. It was a very hot day so the kids liked the water park the best! The bus was WAY to cold..I was freezing and my daughter was actually crying by the time she got off from the cold.

“Family fun”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Drive through safari, elephant show and birds of pray show. We also liked the amenities shop and the restaurants on sight plus the water park. Our kids liked the outdoor experience of the whole trip. Great family fun recommended to everyone with kids

“Fun place but expensive”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Lots of things to do and look at but we found that it was expensive. Handicap parking was not convenient - where we had to park was a considerable distance from the display area.

Reviewed January 24, 2013

My family, teens and younger kids LOVED our visit to this place. What a great deal for a days worth of visiting.. spent a grand amount of time in the water park too!! Loved it. Love the funnel cakes and the boat ride! Great deal for the money--- don't go anywhere else if you have to decide between this place and another!

“Unique in this area!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Col. Daley's triumph of vision! Nobody thought it possible to have exotics in our climate, but he's proven it can be done and the animals don't suffer. No other place quite like this place anyplace. Go!
