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.

This was our first stop on our family road trip through Arkansas. As we winded to the entrance we became a bit concerned that we fell into a tourist trap. The entrance was very basic and rural, nothing fancy. Once inside we began to navigate the walk through portion of the Safari. We were greeted by little piggies, goats, and... More

We throughly enjoyed our time here. Our friends had not visited for a while and said this attraction was much bigger. The highlight was stroking the cougar cubs. We plan to go back very soon. Well worth a visit, children will love it but we were all adults and we loved it.

We had such a good time at this safari! We went on a Sunday and didn't get there until 230 or so… They close at six, but put up the giraffes around five. We really could have spent a couple more hours here playing with all the animals in the petting zoo… We really enjoyed feeding all of the kangaroos... More

This place was a blast! We loved it. The drive through the park had something to look at for the entire route. The petting zoo at the end had bags of feed for $1. Their prices were great. My daughter did the camel ride after the petting zoo. It was only $5. Great way to spend a couple hours with... More
