I've been to many a zoo, and I have to say that I was quite happy with my experience at the Aloha Safari Zoo. They're a family run place, so don't expect manicured gardens, but do expect a good experience that brings you closer to animals without breaking the bank! My fiance and I went for the day and spent only a little over $20! It's a great way to spend a nice day.
It's a wonderful gem hiding in the least expected place. From the road, it looks quite small, but once you get on the ride, you really realize how big it is. The exotic animals they have include a variety of monkeys, a grizzly bear, two Bengal tigers, and wolves! The one thing I will point out is that their website is outdated, and their tigers are no longer cubs, but they're still wonderful to observe.
Overall, we were very impressed with the zoo. Aside from the animals, our favorite part was knowing that this zoo was family run, and they are devoted to the animals. Some employees live on the property, and the majority of the money goes into improving the animal’s enclosures. It’s not the flashiest zoo with cheesy souvenirs, but you get to see the animals up close, and know that they’re in a better place than they were before. This zoo is worth the admission and the trip, no matter how far.
