This has to be one of, if not the best, zoo type parks in this part of the country. We took advantage of the wagon which will take you through out the park..without the animals slobbering all over your car. You can literally reach out...More

Many interesting animals! If you take the bus (which is a covered platform with bench type seats pulled by a tractor) i would sprinkle food on the floor under the seat. The animals can get up close and eat from there. You can pet them...More

Have visited 4 times thru the years. Couldn't wait to take my 4 yr old grandchildren. They loved as did all of us. A wonderful experience. Staff is so friendly. Better buy 3 buckets of feed.

I went with my daughters, one mid-twenties and the other 19. We enjoyed it very much although sometimes the animals were a little unnerving. I think Elementary School age children and up would enjoy it but I would imagine younger children could be scared by...More

This is a great park to see lots of safari animals and more. I would recommend the trailer rides as the feed the animals eat tends to fall out in your car. The walking trail is good as well with lots of animals and birds...More

I would say just over one hour. This includes driving the posted speed limit, stopping to feed & photographing all animals. Enjoy all the animals. Just be careful of the Llamas at the beginning & end.

You can leave the park and go back in with your receipt. You could have a picnic in the parking lot.
