We took our group homes to Fort Chiswell Animal Park today. We really thought this was something really big with alot of animals. They did give us a great guide tour on the safari bus and we did get to see and meet some of the animals, but I guess we were just lead to believe there were alot more than they really were. The guide was very knowledgeable and caring. Our clients are mentally handicap and they were helpful with the clients. Don't think we would go back. Not worth our money!

With around 2-3 hours to while before heading further on our road trip, we looked at some options for fun activities with kids. The hotel front desk had some flyers that guests could look at. Fort Chiswell Animal Park was the only activity that was kid friendly and could be done quickly. We were in for a quite a surprise. Not only is this place affordable and quick, it makes for a memorable experience. The animals appear well cared for. When you see babies born on premises through natural methods, you know its a place that's as animal friendly as it could get. The petting zoo is just perfect if you're waiting for the safari bus. The tour guide was awesome and was very knowledgeable. We visited on a Monday and we were the only ones on the bus. So our experience was like that of a private tour. It was fun interacting with the animals and learning about them and how they joined the park. Cody the bison and Humphrey the camel are awesome. Caroline the water buffalo is adorable. Head to the instructions from the your guide. They are useful and to the point. Outstanding experience. Would do it again if I were in the area.

Absolute must see if you're in the area! Great for kids and grown ups alike! Staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable, had a great hour tour. When the say the animals are up close they mean it! From friendly camels to bison and ostriches that will eat out of your hand, they have it all. Highly recommend!
