This was our first visit and it was such a nice place. From the moment you drive up., you know you're going to have a good time. The greeters are very friendly, it isn't at all expensive. We took the safari tour and it was 30 minutes of driving thru the forest and getting to touch and feed the animals, the grandkids loved that part. Everyone in the family had a good time and we got to experience the animals up close. Definitely going back again, because it started raining and we didn't get to visit all the animals. It's very clean, very well kept and just a nice place to spend a day with the family.

This park offered every type of interaction with wildlife. As you enter you immediately see wildlife roaming around, some large birds just walking around free and others in large spacious clean pens or fenced in area. Then you can take a safari trip through the park in open buses where you see 100's of animals wondering freely and comfortably on hundreds of acres of open range. Some come right up to the bus and are very social, meanwhile the bus driver acts as a tour guide identifying animals and the history of the park. Then there is a petting zoo, with goats, sheep, ponys, and many other farm animals. After that , there is the indoor show where you find a show featuring a sloth, alligators, snakes and hundred year old large turtle. A gift shop and a snack bar, whow, what a nice day!!!!

We had such a fun, informative and relaxing day here despite it being a chilly rainy day. The bus tour is phenomenal. Very knowledgeable guides & the animals were awesome to see up so close. We took our time and enjoyed each exhibit. Not super crowded and both the food and the souvenirs were affordable.

Hadn't been here in almost ten years. Several things have changed. They now have a new area where the tours leave from. Down part is that there's no sign or staff member to ask how often buses come so you are just standing there without knowing if you have time to go get something to eat or to the restroom or what. The tour is about 45 min long and if you bought food, you can feed the animals that are there. Signs aren't to clear. We walked over to the monkeys and also to a couple of baby animals by the petting zoo. Turns out you're not supposed to feed them. They should have signs with pictures indicating not to feed them because not everyone will stop to read a paragraph before looking at the animals even less the kids that run ahead of their parents. All in all
It's a nice place to spend a few hours. Kids love the petting zoo.
