We took the 1 1/2 photo tour "adventure". Out guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and did her best to make sure that we got up close and personal to the animals, so that we got excellent photos. We saw roughly 50 different kinds of animals on the tour, and then did the walk through. Feeding the giraffes was also a... More

We did this on a Sunday morning when the temperatures were cooler out and didn't permit swimming on our vacation. This was so much better than going to a regular zoo. You get to see the animals how they normally would be in the wild and up close and personal at your own pace. We got tons of good pictures.... More

Had a visitor and decided to visit. The drive through zoo comes with a CD (or stream on your smart phone) to listen to descriptions of animals in each enclosure. Husband hoped the lions could wonder past your car, but they are in a fenced area and you drive past on all sides. The ostriches did come peck the car... More

The safari was excellent, felt like you weren't even in Florida anymore. Lots of animals to see and the fact you're allowed to drive though! One of a kind zoo, never seen something like it. Displays and cd soundtrack was good, friendly staff and lot of animals. Cons: a little bit dated here and there in the walk around area... More

I loved it. Came across it last minute and decided to try it out. It was so surreal seeing these animals that you only see on TV. The only thing is that it's a bit pricey. $92 for two of us. You get charged for parking as well which doesn't make sense. It's called a drive thru.

Had been here about 25 years ago. Loved the idea,and was excited to see what had been added since the first visit. Sad to say the place is a bit run down, and the signage is really showing it's age. They have added a self guided CD tour with the price of admission, so that was a plus, but they... More

The drive through portion of the safari was the highlight by far. We had three boys with us and they enjoyed seeing and photographing the animals. The remainder of the park/zoo appeared to be rather old, the bathrooms were filthy, and after a break for ice cream we high-tailed it out rather quickly.

Go early, avoid the crowd. Wonderful park. The safari was fun, the rest of the park was even better. Very clean and well maintained facility. The park staff was wonderful. There was so much to do. Definitely make a day of it. We had a great time.

First of all, I want to publicize the van rentals (mini van and regular van) that they offer for $10! We were traveling with my inlaws, 6 of us total, and had spent a great deal of time trying to rent a mini van from a regular car rental company so that we could all enjoy this day together in...
