We did the self guided tour, looking forward to doing the guided tour on our next visit. Call ahead to verify times for the guided tours to be sure you arrive in time. Definitely a highlight of our visit on Route 66.

Beautifully kept land with scattered wild animals housed in their own fenced environments. Trails were easy to follow with shaded areas to relax. Signage with details for each species. Up close and personal experience never to be forgotten.

Hello Wanda, None of our animals are loose. We provide large spacious natural habitats for the animals. Each habitat is completely fenced to ensure the safety of the animals and the public.

I was able to get two adult tickets for $24.00 on Groupon. The tram tour was an additional $10.00 (well worth it). I would suggest checking out their web site for pricing and tour times.
