Had an amazing time here with my family over the weekend. Had never heard of this place before and found it on a luck Google search. Wish I could rate this park as a 6 star. It is amazingly large and pretty inexpensive to get in. I think we were charged about $50 for 5 of us. Tons of local animals and also a large selection of stuff we don't have here; Alligators, Camels, Tigers, etc. It is all outside, so dress appropriately. The park itself is well laid out and make sure to being extra money for stuff like feeding animals and also camel rides. Seriously, check this place out, it is wonderful!
A hidden gem. This was the best experience we have had with animals at a smaller facility. Very charming wildlife park. Worth the price!
