We have been here numerous times. Beautiful grounds and clean. They are not however very visitor friendly compared to many other places we have been. We will continue to go here from time to time but prefer Promiseland Zoo in Branson way more!More

This isn't your average zoo. They specialize in being a world leader in breeding rare and endangered animals. The have developed interactive exhibits so people connect to the animals. We don't get to visit very often but love it when we do.

This is a wonderful, interactive, attraction. I don't really want to call it a 'zoo' because it is not just for viewing animals. You can feed giraffe's, tortoises, Lorikeets, goats, hippos, Lemurs, and other wildlife in a very safe, professional environment. TWP is a breeding...More

We took three kids here for the day and loved it. They have animals here that you can't interact with at other zoos.
