Worth every $$ to enjoy this adventure with the kids. Eleven of us took the private tour, guide was outstanding and knowledgable of all the animals, and the up front animal encounters were awesome. Would definitely plan this again.

My wife and I took our 2 1/2 year old grandson to go see the animals. We had a great time. The zebras came right up to the train. Unfortunately the giraffes stayed 100 yards away. We could still see them, just not up close....More

We loved Global Wildlife and we will be making another trip very soon. The private tour was well worth it. You get to feed the animals and the adults loved it as much as the children.

We saw a brochure and decided to visit and I'm so glad we did. It was very nice. Out guide Becka was great. We saw and got to feed some many animals. It was up close. We had a great time.

Yes, it is worth it for several reasons. First, you get to go off-trail to see more of the animals up close which the group tour does not do. Second, you run the risk of being with a group tour that could have a... More
