Really nice experience, well done for the small admission price. Very hot the day we went and even so we saw animals in every exhibit and most were at least somewhat active. Friendly staff too. Take bug spray!

My kids loved this place. Lots to see and do. Bring bug spray, the no-see-ums were bad. This is educational AND fun. This is our favorite place in Savannah.

After living in Savannah for many years we decided to try the wildlife center. Even on a hot summer afternoon was a very pleasant walk on the shady paths. The animals are all in natural habitat set ups, except the birds in the aviary. They...More

I rate it five stars for the road leading to the visitors center. Breathtaking and beautiful. Was able to drive the road which is the only reason we visited the place.

The whole family enjoyed our visit to the center. It was extremely hot and humid, and the animals are few and far between. But, when you finally get to them, they are very close.

This is a small park that is designed for small children. It is affordable, $5.00 per person. The trails are a bit long, and most animals hide on a hot day, but you can see the animals quite well.

I was surprised at the amount of animals they had, and the feeding spot for the turtles (although you have to be a good throw to keep it away from the catfish) was a great hit with the children and adults.
