  • I want to start off here by stating. Take the bus tour then see the animals by the office THEN drive through the park yourself. It will be a 1000 times better if you do. We went off season aka late Feb. Less people to deal with. However, we went when it was 70 out and we're the only ones on the bus We learned so much more about animals this way. Like the names, how they got there. How to get them to come get treats, etc. By the time we came back in our own van we already knew where to look for them and had almost all of them coming to see us at the van. It did not cost extra to do both. As for the zoo area it was very small. The animals do seem happy but would like to see animals like lions, and giraffes have bigger spaces. The rest were mostly goats, camels, sheep, fox, etc. My favorite was the giraffes and especially the fish pond. If you talk to the staff you can find out a lot of the struggle to modernize the park. As such I think 70 for a family of 4 is fair so they can continue to improve. I definitely enjoyed my time there as did my family. Only wish we had something similar in Colorado. I hope to come back in a few years to see what improvement has been made.
  • This was an absolutely amazing experience, and we didn't realize how big the park actually is until you start driving down it. So many different animals, and it was so fun feeding them. It was also the first time I have ever pet a zebra ! The only thing that was a big scary was that a steer with Big horns shook its head near our car and hit some of the windows. Was a bit worried they were going to break or something, but it all worked out. Overall we had an amazing time !! Definitely will be coming back in the future. Especially once they get the otter area in 🦦.
