What do you do on a guided tour?

Typically, we take you on a 45 minute safari ride with a tour guide. You’ll learn about and interact with over 600 animals from all over the world! Before and after the ride, you can enjoy our petting zoo and caged animal enclosure. If you bring along a sack lunch, you can enjoy a unique picnic under our huge oak trees by the petting zoo!

When are we open for guided tours?

We are only offering guided tours during the weekdays! On Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, we are still only offering the drive-through experience to better keep ourselves and you all safe.

What if it rains?

We are open rain or shine! The animals are still very active if it is a bit drizzly! The only time they get a bit lazy is if it is extremely hot outside… So use your best judgement!

What does it cost?

Visit our Daily Tours & Pricing page for tour prices and other details!

Do you really need to buy a bag of feed?

Our animals are free-fed all day, every day. The feed in your bag is only a snack for your enjoyment. But through our experience, buying feed definitely enhances your experience because the animals will spend more time with the guest willing to give them more snacks!

When is the best time for a tour?

Any time is a good time! Our animals interact all day, every day because they love attention and snacks. You need to plan on coming simply when you are comfortable – we operate the tours rain or shine, so we’ll see you whenever is convenient for you! Just dress accordingly to the weather.

Can you bring a big group?

We do not accept large groups at this moment. Our trams are currently only seating 16-20 guests per COVID-19 restrictions. Because of this, we are also not offering any group rates. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Can you schedule a field trip excursion?

Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, our Field Trips are currently unavailable.

Do we have birthday party packages?

Our Birthday Party option is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Are we handicap accessible?

Our guided tour and petting zoo is easily accessible for those in a wheelchair or those with mobility issues. We have a heavy-duty ramp that is removable and easy to place for ease of loading and unloading onto the guided tour. Our petting zoo is, of course, bumpy terrain but it is designed for everyone to enjoy.

Are we dog-friendly?

You may bring along your pup for a guided tour amongst the critters. However, we don’t highly recommend bringing your dog. Our animals see dogs as their natural predator, and may not give you the same, awesome experience you’d have elsewise. So, if it is possible for you to leave your pet at home, that is preferred!

There are a few restrictions: (1) Dogs must weigh under 20 pounds. (2) Must be leashed at ALL times. If your pet is found off the leash even once, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the property. There are no exceptions! (3) Keep barking to a minimum.

You will be asked to fill out a waiver for your pet upon arrival.

Additionally, it is expected that you pick up after your pet’s waste in the cabin area. There may be additional charges if this is not done! Be responsible!
