Now that I have a toddler, I have realized how hard it is to find things for them to do! This zoo is a great activity for kids - even the littlest ones! It would also be a fun date - if you enjoy animals! I could not believe the variety of animals at this place, and all the animals... More

This hidden treasure was AMAZING!!! The staff, the facility, and of course, the beautiful animals made this a fantastic day. Feeding the smaller animals by hand, throwing bread to the beautiful camel that wanted to race the tractor, and listening to the keeper talks were all fun and educational. Giving carrots to a giraffe ended up being a bucket list... More

We happened on the website of this hidden gem last week and made the trip there today. It was absolutely one of the prettiest and cleanest zoos we've been too. A very friendly, and homey atmosphere. Immediately noticed the animals are very well cared for..love that!! This zoo is certainly not lacking for variety in animals from goats, kangaroos and... More

We went on a Sunday and we had a blast! This Zoo is a true gem that's hidden away, and definitely worth seeing. All of these years that I lived in NC and I had no idea all of these rescued exotic animals were all in one place. It is a lot of fun if you have kids... and even... More

Have visited here multiple times. Great for families. Great for adults. Everyone I've been with always walks away with smiles and good memories. Make sure to take the safari ride!

Admission is reasonable. Animals are well attended and are all rescues which can't return to the wild. There are several domestic and a few wild animals that you can feed and touch! Cows, goats, sheep, horses, ducks and one of the many peacocks. Buy a bag per person at ticket counter... giraffe carrots are by Stretch's (giraffe) house. There is... More

The animals looked a little less than happy to be there. But I'm told that they're all rescues, so I guess that's a plus. Pricing is pretty good and the kids love it. Definitely worth a day trip.

My husband and I visited this zoo (for me is more like a sanctuary) last November 19th, and we had such a great experience, especially learning about how they rescued and helped these animals. My husband needed a wheelchair, and they provided him with a very comfortable and easy to use one, making sure he was doing ok every step... More

I recommend it to anybody. I had an awsome time with my wife. Took hundreds of pictures literally. Although not with my phone. I will be coming back.

I absolutely enjoyed taking my family to the Aloha Safari Zoo. They had all sorts of animals. This zoo is much smaller than your traditional zoo; however, the experience is much different. While many of the animals are in isolated areas, there are animals that you are allowed to pet and touch. A few years back, I was able to... More
