we loved all the animals and getting to feed almost everyone of them! Great place! I was huge and took us almost 3 hours to tour it all. Yes there are alot of goats BUT my child loved feeding them! It was fun!

An excellent zoo and was very reasonably priced, the staff was very friendly. The general location of the zoo, in relation to the beach tourist venue is great. It was very noticeable as well as notable, that many small children were enjoying themselves, feeding the animals and seeing rare and unusual animal species up close and personal. Waccatees' rural and rustic coastal atmosphere lends itself well to any visitor of the zoo.

Having said the above.... It is not to be expected, that it is staffed or funded similar to the Atlanta or New York zoos. However... it is an outstanding place to take your family, especially children, and spend some time enjoying the animals, nature and time together!

Before we got to the zoo, my son told me that he was tired of going to zoos and would rather do something else. I told him to give it a try and be nice, because his sister LOVES animals. Once we got there, my son realized that he could feed most of the animals. He ended up absolutely loving the zoo!! There are so many animals that the kids can feed, and a huge bag of feed is only $6. It is big enough to feed the animals throughout the whole zoo. We all had a wonderful time!

Soo many different animals on an up close nature walk and ability to feed most of them. Hidden gem and a great place to take kids.

We took our grandson here a couple years ago. The entrance price was very reasonable. Many of the animals can be feed by hand, so get a bag of peanuts when you start the tour. This zoo is not your normal zoo in that it has a lot of different animals. Many species of birds, plus pigs and other animals not always found in a zoo.
