By far this is one of the best zoo's that I have ever been too. The Zoo ain't real big but you get close to the animals. Lots of animals that you can feed. A nice little train ride. A definite thing to do with a family when visiting the area. All my children from the ages of 8-20 had... More

Close to the beach and a great place to spend an afternoon. Not a huge zoo by major city standards but well laid out, clean and interesting.

This is a smaller zoo, our entire visit was about an hour. We did not have any children with us, but I would imagine they would enjoy this zoo a lot more. One thing I wanted to share, if you are a full grown adult (and possibly somewhat overweight) don't bother with the train ride. The seats on the train... More

Hidden gem located on Hwy 98 between Gulf Breeze and Navarre. My husband and I go there sometimes just to walk, see the animals and ride the train! Great attraction for people of all ages!

Great day trip near the beach. Seemed a little expensive to me when we first got there, but ended up being well worth the admission price. The train ride was fun and entertaining. BUT without a doubt.. The best part was feeding the budgies (birds). They would land on you and eat the food. It was awesome....

We stumbled across this zoo purely by accident. We decided to take our 3 grandchildren and they loved it. They had a great time feeding the animals, riding the train and eating in the cafe. It is a little on the expensive side, so I'm not sure I would go frequently, but for a spur of the moment adventure, it... More

We visited this zoo with our daughter and it was the perfect size for small kids, with the perfect amount of exhibits! They had several baby animals (giraffes and monkeys), so that was fun to see. The zoo is well-maintained and the grounds are attractive. The petting zoo and the budgie exhibit were great! The prices seemed a little high... More

We went in the middle of the afternoon and it was too hot. Most animals were just laying around Due to the heat. There is a varied selection to see but not able to get photos without fences in the pictures. We did think the 15 minute train ride was good. We did buy food to feed the animals. You... More

Let me start by saying this is not Animal Kingdom or even a large zoo, so if you're expecting that, you may be disappointed. However, for a small zoo, this one is amazing. We were fortunate to visit while they had two baby giraffes and were able to watch them bottle feed one of the giraffes. You can feed many... More
