From the very beginning you can feel that this is not a zoo, the animals are relaxed and still in their natural habitat, albeit in captivity. Visiting the park it's nice enough, but the real jewel is the encounter with the wolves. Expensive, but worth...More

Had a great walking hike through park. Walking area very nice but area where the animals area was tall weeds and hard to see some of the animals. Beautiful river you get to walk across.

The park is set in a really beautiful environment and it's so great to see that the animals have plenty of space (even though that means you might not get to see some of them). However, the wolf experience was a one-in-a-lifetime experience! So amazing,...More
