My Boss and I took the drive thru part of the park. Slowly we came up on all kinds of animals that stuck their face in our window to say hello and smile for our camera. We had a great time and we will come back one day armed with children.

My wife and I had a really good time. 4-mile drive through with numerous different animal species. Also had another large area to walk through and feed/pet many others. Staff very friendly and helpful. We'll be back! Can't wait to bring our younger nieces.

We was very pleased in the amount of animals that can be seen here. The drive thru the park was very nice also. We got to feed the kangaroos inside thier structures so it was one on one with the them. It was cold and sorta rainy so I would pick a warm temp and sunny day in order to... More

We went to this "zoo" that is a mix between a petting zoo and safari for our daughter's first birthday. While there we got to see a good number of animals and got to pet them including giraffes and kangaroos. Unlike other zoos, even though the weather was a bit colder (in the low 50s I think) and some animals... More

If you like animals, and/or have never done a drive thru safari, this is a great stop. In addition to the drive thru portion, on a scenic route, with several animals you rarely get to see, there are several areas you walk through and see/pet different smaller animals. They sell a paper lunch bag size of bread for $1, which... More

Wow! I can not say enough good things about this safari/zoo! Our family of 5 teenagers and a family friend visited today and had the best time! The staff are really friendly and do not mind telling all about the animals in the petting zoo. You are able to actually pet and hand feed red kangaroos! There are pot bellied... More

This is one of the better drive thru safaris. Very well maintained & large walking area as well. The best part is that you are not allowed to feed the animals on the drive thru. This makes it much more natural and the animals not flocking to the cars. Highly recommend if you are near.

This is a great way to spend the afternoon! I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of land dedicated to the animals. The drive thru area was a great way to see the more exotic animals but the highlight for me was the petting area and feeding the giraffes. I was shocked to see so many varieties of animals in...

This is a great place for the whole family. Offers 10 miles of drive through animal sightings. Offers 3 safari's with different species in each one. Then you can get out and walk through four more miles of animals that you actually get to feed. Great place to visit.

Thank Valen I
