“Quaint little zoo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

a decent day outing for those that love animals no matter where they are located--- it is not a big city zoo --- so support the local activity

“Small but very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was a very pleasant experience for myself and my family. The zoo had a lot of shade and a petting portion in the zoo.

“GREAT local zoo.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is an amazing small local zoo. I did not expect to see so many animals and such wonderful habitats at a local zoo. But the Zoo of Acadiana blows many mid-sized zoos away. The animals truly seem pleased with their environments. Children can learn a lot. It's a relaxing place to visit.

“This is a small, privately owned zoo that is worth the admission”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

We've been here a couple of times and as zoo's go I would recommend it. It's small and quaint, but has a new live show that changes from day to day, as well as a short train ride available. They offer birthday party packages and a reasonably priced gift shop. It's worth the price of admission and is a very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

“MUST GO TO SEE BEGAL TIGER CUBS FILE' AND GUMBO!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

You will be amazed, delighted and astounded by the zoo's recent acquisition of the brother and sister begal tiger cubs File' (girl) and Gumbo (boy). To tell which is which, Gumbo is darker and slightly bigger and File' is lighter in color and looks feminine! She is the more frisky of the two as well. This zoo is just amazing and is over 50 acres in size. For the Christmas season they do a small train ride around the exhibit beginning at dusk so you may enjoy the Christmas decorations and lights. This is such a wonderful experience for young, old, single or family. You really should see the tiger cubs before they get too big. They actually purr when they see people! I couldn't believe it! Wonderful experience! Also, their phone number area code is 337 not 318 as mentioned on the ad. See you there! :)
