We took a private tour with Nicole (kids ages 8, 10 & 16). She is very knowledgeable and sweet. We purchased the largest feed container and had a blast feeding the animals — especially the giraffes!

We had a wonderful time here!!!! It is a great place. Not very expensive, $19 entrance and $ for food. I kissed a giraffe! What could be better?! Great organization, clean, animals are well cared for.

Yes, it is worth it for several reasons. First, you get to go off-trail to see more of the animals up close which the group tour does not do. Second, you run the risk of being with a group tour that could have a... More
