This was my first time at the Gentry Zoo since I was a little kid. The drive thru part was fun, but we went in the afternoon around 2 o'clock and most of the animals were sleeping so the next time we go we will try in the morning and see if that makes a difference. It actually took longer... More

I've grown up near the safari and still visit several times a year. A fantastic place to visit and enjoy a relaxing day. Sometimes there are interactive moments where you can touch the animals with supervision. Take a picnic lunch and make a day of it. Where else can you sit with a herd of kangaroos?

Was a lot of fun for the whole family. We will visit again. We drove from central Arkansas to visit for the day and the kids loved it.

This was such a fun place, animals come right up to your car and after the drive through you can park and see more animals up close and personal.

We visited on a Tuesday morning and we were lucky to be the only visitors for couple hours. Arriving early allowed us to take our time driving around the property, stopping to take lots of photos and really enjoy the place and the animals. Had a great time with the emus but our favorites were the little donkeys (which you... More

We've been here several times and we always have fun. The cost seems rather pricy though...especially this time since it was too cold to do the walking part. I really wish they would offer a drive thru only admission price. My sister is in a wheel chair and she can't do any of the walking part yet they charge full... More

Went to this drive-through safari for the first time today. There was a nice variety of animals to be seen. We all had a great time with the animals that came up to the car windows..(the emu's, deer, zebra, etc..) The petting zoo was also a nice spot to visit. Our family had a great time today and we will... More
