We just left this facility and wow! We are blown away. This self-guided driving tour was so worth it. We loved seeing all of the animals and the walk about area. The facility was clean and beautifully landscaped! Great for families and couples!

If I could give it zero stars I would. We paid over $100 to pretty much see deer and ostrich. There were no zebras and the two rhino’s we saw look completely malnutrition. Would not recommend. The drive through safari in Franklin was way better!

There were a variety of animals on the drive through most interactions are with the ones at the beginning that you can feed. My 4 year old granddaughter loved it.
They have an area to walk about you can see giraffes up close, birds, monkeys.

I've been here several times, and it is a fun and cute place. The animals are well treated and well fed. But it simply has gotten too expensive: $25 per person, and the bags of animal food cost $5. They used to include one bag for free, but not anymore.

Having been to similar drive through experiences in other states, this was a poor comparison. We went in the early morning expecting the animals to be more active. We saw mostly deer, and very close to the entrance. There was no sign of the rhinos or many of the larger game. We drove through 3 separate areas without seeing a single animal. We are grown adults and were disappointed--I can only imagine how hard this would be for families of little ones. For an $80 entrance fee, this wasn't worth the trip.

Very well kept Animal sanctuary. Don't miss this little gem. We were without kids this trip but still enjoyed it.

This experience was so much fun! My son was even able to feed a baby ostrich out of the food bag that we bought. We went during spring break so lines were a bit long to go in but once your in the staff makes sure the line is always flowing. It was so amazing to see the animals so close!

So we went a year ago and there were barely any animals around. Ok so went again, price is more & way over priced for this time not getting to hand feed 1 animal. And now theres no petting zoo. $100 waste. So sad used to be fun. Not worth the price to just look at a hill and dirt.

Let’s start with the price and pricing.

You grow up VERY fast here. At 13 you’re an adult and charged as one. While my 13 and 15 year old where glad to be adults I felt it was cheating on price. Cost for my family was almost $200. 😢
The facilities are very nice and clean but they don’t cap how many people they let in. This is first and for-most a for profit business. Think sea world, six flags style lines in your car. You will see animals so full you feel kind of sorry for them lol

Overall it was not worth $200 and 2 hours of our life. I would say call star S Ranch in mason it’s more expensive but 17,000 acres and you really feel like you’re in Africa it’s incredible.
Advice to this place: charge by the car. $30-50
Limit the amount of food you sell your customers, have some attendants around the park helping traffic and making sure people aren’t tossing
Doritos 😂 good concept.
