We had such a fun time feeding the animals. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of animals walking right up to us in the petting area. The baby goats were so cute and very entertaining. A beautiful day and lots of fun watching the lions get fed by the staff too.

We made a trip here with our grandson after recommendations from others. Our grandson(age 8) had a blast, and we were amazed at the variety of animals there. There were sheep, goats and deer roaming free and willing to be petted and fed. We had numerous opportunities to pet and/or hold baby animals(like bobcats) and got to see many others... More

Lots of exotic animals and Pygmy Goats running among the visitors! Grandsons (5 & 7 yo) had a great time, good photo ops and very educational for them.

I will not only never return to this place but I will highly recommend this place be shut down! I just turned 25 and have been wanting to come here for the last few years! I love animals more than anything and I wanted to go and finally this year got to go. Worst choice to spend my birthday ever!... More

This is a terrible rip-off at $17.50 for adult admission (and adults begin at 13 years!), but worst still are the conditions in which many of the animals are forced to live. The cramped, unimaginative cages are reminiscent of zoos of years ago. The entire safari experience can be got through in under 15 minutes including the feeble gift shop.

I have mixed emotions about this place. They had a wide variety of animals and you could see them close up- much closer than at the zoo. The goats, sheep, donkeys, peacocks, etc. roamed around freely and you could feed them (50 cents for a cone filled with feed). We had an opportunity to pet a baby lynx and bear.... More

I have been here several times from 1991-2016 and each time has been different. As they grow and evolve they are becoming less hands on people friendly. It's sad to see what made them so awesome to slowly be taken away.

This park was dirty and smelly. We felt sorry for the animals in the cages. You would be better off visiting a well maintained zoo. I would not visit this park again.
