I’d recommend the live animal exhibit as well as the trail. The gentlemen who handled the animals were very gentle with their animals and knowledgeable. They answered all questions. The trail is fun and features interesting wildlife alongside the path.

I'm normally a nature vacationer, so going to Savannah, I needed some kind of wild reprieve. This is a great little hike for an afternoon. Total time we spent on the loop was about two hours, but we took our time. Definitely worth it.

Yes. They have trained Wildlife specialist on site would be glad to give demonstrations. I would suggest calling ahead to find out what exactly they have and what times.
