Upon arrival, you'll begin your adventure through 137 sprawling wooded acres, where 700+ exotic animals (at last count) from 80 different species will invite you into their home!Plan my day in Johnson City using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
But first, get ready to share this experience to the fullest by purchasing a bucket of feed, so that you can socialize and hand feed everything from American Bison, Scottish Highlanders, Bactrian two-hump Camels and Zebras!
The professional tour guides will look forward to sharing amazing facts about some of our more unique 'personalities', as well as educational information about how The Exotic Resort Zoo extends and preserves their way of life by allowing them to thrive and multiply without the threats they would experience in the wild.
Your adventure doesn't stop there! When you're done with the guided tour, be sure to stop in and have your own close-up encounters with more of the young babies in our multiple petting zoo areas. You can even extend your stay further and bring your own lunch to relax to enjoy a picnic meal under our large tree covered picnic area!
If you want to extend your Safari Tour experience into a more personal and private encounter, we recommend checking availability at any of the (5) safari cabins. They are all finished out with aromatic cedar and all are configured for plenty of space for a family of 4, with one two-story cabin that is configured for a family of 6 (we can work with options for larger families as well, just call us)!
When you stay at the Safari Cabins, your party of paid guests also receives complimentary guided tours! In addition, you'll have private access to several small pool areas, hot tub, recreation area with tons of outdoor cooking options (and pool table to pass the time)...
There is also exclusive access to the kangaroo exhibit, catch & release fishing pond, and a large playscape area for the kids. If you bring a bucket of feed down to the cabin area, many of the animals will come over and you can feed them directly for as long as you like (especially the camels)! Beyond that - just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful views overlooking the majestic hill country!
