The staff is great and I love that they post when they are feeding so you can watch. Just wish they had a little more variety.

We had a great time at this Zoo/Sanctuary. They give you a little map and you take a self guided tour. We came on a weekday on a day trip to Prescott, so some of the attractions like the lemur walk were closed. We still...More

We spent about an hour there. As others have noted, it is a very small zoo, and no food is available. And definitely go in the morning during the summer!
