Took our 3 year old grandson. He was excited about seeing the animals. He had a blast. I would recommend buying more than one bird stick to feed the parakeets, that was his favorite part.

Thank Lora M

Everybody "loves" the Parakeet Jungle Exhibit - if you like birds that is! We are so glad your grandson had such a good time. Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you again soon!

This is one of the neatest experiences you can have if you or your kids love animals. It is inexpensive and you are basically interacting with nearly all of the animals. For $1, you get a large bag of feed (not 5 or 6 little crumbs like other places). My kids loved it, got some great pictures, and I highly recommend this place. We are from Saint Louis and we found it 10 times better than our zoo. Sure, the Saint Louis Zoo is free but you also have to deal with the crowds, parking, and all the walking.

I have never been so close to a deer! Several came up to eat from my hand. Would be a great stop for any age.

We visit Lazy L Safari Park quite often, but this past visit was filled with lots of baby sightings! Two baby zebras, two baby lemurs, a baby white camel named Liberty, and tiny pot bellied pigs were just some of little ones spotted! Always fun at Lazy L---feeding the parakeets are one of our favorite activities!

I was not impressed with this place. This was someones farm in the middle of no where. They want you too pay $7 per person for animals you can see from your car. What my group thought was a real giraffe was actually a statue in the middle of a pen. Do yourself a favor and go to an actual zoo.

Thank you for visiting our zoo, but I'm sorry you were disappointed. Your right, this is our family farm. We are a working ranch and agritourism operation. Agritourism is when you open your farm to visitors - it's the latest tourism activity in the past 10 years and growing in visitor attendance every year.

Our family owned walk-thru zoo has over 50 species of exotic animals from Alligators to Zebras which are not found on a typical farm. We are also not your typical zoo as you can get up close and personal with several of our animals. In keeping with an agritourism venue, we also have a Parakeet Jungle Activity, Gemstone Mining, Gift Shop, and Safari Playland.

The giraffe statue you saw is basically just for decoration and certainly not meant to fool anybody. The reason you can see a lot of the animals from the parking lot is because this is our family farm where our animals live.
