This a great zoo, that easily exceeds most guests expectations. While it is smaller than many zoos that are far more well-known, it is the perfect zoo for this community. In fact, the incredible support from the local community is a critical component to its success. Guests get a chance to experience the animals close-up in a very natural setting. This is a fantastic place to take children.

Only had 2 hours to see the Zoo. I suggest at least 3 or more so you can go through it a couple times. The animals change there positions and have different feeding times and presentations. I saw the Gators & Crocks get fed, unfortunately they feed them pellets thrown in the water as opposed to the usual raw chicken dangled to jumping Gators. The petting Zoo closed at 4 so I didn't get to pet the alpacas or other animals. (:-( they were very cute! I only got to see the 6 Giraffes go into their Barn from a very long distance away, and the two babies are what I really came to see. It was almost 20 miles from the beach hotel where I was staying. It's located next to I-95 so you might want to schedule your visit on the way in or out of town. Nice selection of reasonably priced food and sweets. New Mercat enclosure opening soon. $16.00's was reasonable and you can get $1.00 off person if bring in the coupons located on brochures and flyers at Hotels.

Went here on a chilly day and still had a great time. For the price $16, I couldn't believe all it had to offer. We stayed in Kissimmee so he was a short day trip for us. They say it is four hour visit to see all but you could stay longer for sure. The sections for kids were great too. This is a great clean place to visit off the "Disney" track that won't cost a fortune.

Love the Zoo. We go all the time. Very well kept grounds and best of all the animals are well cared for and loved. The canoeing, tree trek and animals are just so much fun. The Zoo is great for being in a smaller town like Melbourne, FL. Just off of I-95 so very convenient.
