For the whole park, consider three to three-and-a-half hours. If you have small children perhaps four hours because the tour in the bus can take up to an hour or a little more. The buses are open-air, no top so you can interact with the animals. They sell popcorn that you can feed the animals with. It's a very cool visit!

I agree with the other reviewers - plan on spending at least 3-4 hours there in order to see/do everything. The tours are in what looks like a "sawed off" old school bus, so you're out in the sun. If you choose to wear a hat, make sure it's tight on your head - you don't want it to fall off during your tour. Enjoy!

You are riding in the sun. I would at least plan for 3-4 hours if you were never there. Maybe even a little longer.

You are in the sun. No canopies. We usually recommend 3 hours to do everything. I am one of the owners daughters. ☺

The tour bus is uncovered, and the ride takes about an hour or maybe a little more. To see the whole park probably takes around 4 hours.

Yes, I agree with the others. You can spend quite a few hours there. The safari tour is not covered that way you get a nice close look at the area and of course the animals! The waiting area for the tour is covered. We arrived when the park opened and went on the safari tour first, so we didn't have to wait. There are some shaded areas and some picnic tables. You can picnic in the parking area. I hope this helped. Enjoy your visit!

the tour busses are not covered, so wear a hat and I'd suggest doing that 1st thing in the morning. I would say to see the whole park including the safari ride... about two or three hours, but you can be more leisurely and eat lunch there too. (bring your own or buy it there) the reptile show is quite entertaining and educational as well.

I would allow at least 3 hours. The open air bus is in the sun and without a roof so you can feed the animals. That portion takes at least an hour. There are other buildings that are enclosed that you tour on your own; but also other places where you can feed the animals that are outside.
