The admission is very low, $5 adult and $3 military. There was a wide varity of animals. The bobcat and cougar were my favorite. There are many birds of prey. We missed the wolves as we went towards the afternoon and it was a bit hot. I think they may be lore active in the morning when it's not so hot. The walking paths are cover with a canopy of trees and even though it was hot degree wise, it was shady and pleasant. I woul suggest bug spray as there are some ponds and marsh land that had mosquitoes. I am definitely planning on revisiting!

This is an interesting way to learn about the natural environment of Savannah. This area is sub-tropical which is a very different part of the Southeast. Good exhibits and programs for all ages.

Lots of walking here through the woods to get to a very few exhibits. The animals and birds here were well cared for. I would think it would be better when the weather is cooler.
I would go again.

My kids love this place. It is not huge, but there are still quite a few things to see. The exhibits are nicely done - it is easy to see most of the animals, and they are look as natural as possible. It is a nice place to enjoy the outdoors for a couple of hours - but don't forget the bug spray or the mosquitos and sand gnats will eat you alive.

I went today to the Oatland Island Wildlife Center. This was a very cheap day activity. We were there for 3 hours (it didn't seem that long) and we were able to view all the animals except for the cougar. The kids had a great time and so did I! It is worth the trip, but do bring your bug spray. The mosquitoes are crazy!
