It was a hot day but really enjoyed this place. Take your own water and portable fan. And hand sanitizer.

We went to the zoo for a 1st grade school field trip, so you might want to avoid a weekday if you go with a small/family group! There was at least one another school but they accommodated everyone really well in a relatively small space....More

It's too expensive for what it is. There are many herbivores which are free to roam quite a lot of land. Lots of the deer, zebra, bison etc... Stay together which is what it's like in Africa, so I enjoyed that part. You get taken...More

The kids loved the wildlife zoo and they had a great day riding the tram and feeding the animals. From their perspective it was a perfect place. However, their maintenance could use a little boost to the program. Some areas seemed unkept and not as...More

Our grandchildren enjoyed seeing all the animals and the petting zoo area, so what else matters? Watch out for the deer in the picnic area...it has a taste for human food and is not interested in the food pellets you buy to feed the animals.
