Our grandson had a blast feeding the animals. And we were able to view a variety of wildlife from around the world. We would recommend this to everyone, it was a lot of fun.

Loved it. Worth the stop. Wrote a long review, but phone cycled and lost it. Bus tour had a very informative driver. Walking tour had several animals. Feeding the giraffe and smaller animals was fun.

I’ve been here several times over the past 30-ish years. It’s had its ups and downs. The animals were in good health and they have added two giraffes.

This was pretty expensive but what a cool experience!! Feeding and petting exotic animals was such a big hit with my kids. Where else are you going to pet a zebra? It’s a bit outside of Springfield, but it’s definitely worth the drive. You can...More
