  • Well worth the visit! A small Zoo and different, all participate in a guided tour through the Zoo! And then have the opportunity to interact with animals (OWL, Armadillo, Monkey Ball, jacarezinho and snakes).

  • I just visited ZWF. I loved the experience and really enjoyed seeing all of the animals. We chose the $85 general tour, you walk around and look at all of the animals and learn really cool facts about each species. Candy (not sure if that's how you spell her name) was our tour guide, and she was awesome. Super knowledgeable and let us give monkeys and sloths little snacks like apples and bananas. At the end we also got to pet and hold 4-6 different animals. Really cool experience, I am 20 and boyfriend 21, would be great for any ages. Hope that helps!
  • This was hands down one of the best experiences I have ever had the opportunity to do. We opted for the 3 hour tour and loved every minute of it. Stephanie was a fabulous tour guide and very knowledgeable. My 14 yr old son thanked me over and over again when we left for giving him the time to experience the jaguars, white lion cub, the different primates and the slothes. He asked a million questions and Stephanie could answer all of them. Very clean and top notch facility.
  • Amazing experience! We bought the white lion cub encounter and we met the beautiful Dana 😍 she’s playful, friendly and very sweet. If you do buy the encounter make sure to take as many photos as possible because the 5-10 minutes feel like 5-10 seconds. A few things to note: take your time before getting here because the roads are confusing, long and unpaved. But the zoo itself is beautiful and well maintained! Friendly staff willing to help and educate you. We visited on Christmas Day and accidentally met the star of the zoo, Limbani, after our encounter with Dana. Dave, Gabe and Mariebelle thank you for your attention and for allowing us to receive an even better experience with the tour! We’re extremely grateful and thankful 🙏🏼
  • What a great experience if you are a true animal lover! We paid for the standard tour, I recommend arriving early. This is not a typical zoo, you get to interact with some of the animals. The Staff is very nice and knowledgeable of all the beautiful animals. Our tour guide was very nice and she geninuinely enjoyed her job, she had a monkey "Oliver" on tour with us the entire time which made it more fun and entertaining. I would definitely recommend coming here. The price is definitely well worth it.. FYI: Bring bug spray, sunblock, and water.
