This place was outstanding we spent the whole day there and still did not get all of it done. You can bring your own lunch plenty of picnic tables. We ate our lunch enjoying the sea loin show. So many birds and monkeys. I never...More

This is not your run-of-the-mill zoo. You can actually see animals moving around in their habitat. A lot of walking involved, but that’s also a good thing as we like to go here to get out of the house and actually move around ourselves.

Some interesting animals here. A very low key comfortable zoo, and of course the weather can't be beat! There are even a couple of rides to excite the kiddoes a bit more. Plan to spend two to three hours enjoying the wide open space.

Found the add in a local free mag - was a $5/person off the entrance. Hands down the best wildlife park we’ve ever been too for wildlife! Tigers, rhinos, monkeys, reptiles, birds (big birds) - just about everything except big mammals. A little pricey ($40/adult)...More

Great Zoo lots of animals. The only bad thing is they do not except credit card once you are in the Zoo for the rides or food.

We were here on a Saturday in December (it was a cold day!). I have to start this review by saying - this attraction clarifies throughout your visit that they are a rescue/restoration facility for animals and they are entirely privately owned and funded. They...More

They do have wheelchairs available, however they do not look like they are in the best shape. All the paths are crushed gravel and that also makes if very difficult to push around a wheelchair for any length of time. If you... More

Yes, they have large cats. The display for the panther (I think it was a panther) is awesome. You can walk under it. Kinda different knowing it’s looking down on you as you walk under. Also that had tiger cubs there. A baby... More
