What a great day trip. Many different animals, a petting zoo with goats. Lots of interesting animals and Wes was so nice and helpful giving us fun facts at every animal we saw. The whole staff is extremely nice. 2 shows inside air conditioning, first show of parrots was cool, followed by a big cat show. Great place to take the kids. I highly recommend
Great experience! My wife said it was her best mothers day yet. Much better than Busch gardens or even the zoo. Very reasonable prices on everything. My family has pictures now holding baby goats, an alligator, and feeding tigers. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and kind. They have a great mission and seem to be one of the few organizations genuinely concerned with animal well-being.
