This awesome place to me was in the middle of nowhere! Just so happened I was searching things to do while in Alexandria & stumbled upon this! We had a blast! So much fun feeding the animals! The staff is also very friendly! Best part of our trip was capturing on video one of the animals stealing my daughters cup... More

Acres of land with all sorts of exotic grazing animals - zebras, camels, wildebeasts, ostriches, prairie dogs, Kangaroos, and more. There is a petting zoo and you can ride around in a guided bus and get really close to the animals. Hold on to all of your belongings or a camel just might reach his mouth into the bus and... More

This is a great place to bring the whole family. Gone Wild Safari is a different experience from a zoo. Your able to get an up close, one on one glimpse of these exotic animals. You can also feed certain animals from the palm of your hand. The staff is informative and helpful.

Gone wild is such a unique experience! It isnt very large, but it is located in smaller, less populated areas, so that is to be expected. That doesnt make it any less perfect for a fun day with the family. During the summer, i take my little ones (3 and 4) several times. They love it! Grab a cup, or... More

I took my mother and uncle (both seniors) to this park when we visited Pineville. We had so much fun. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are easy to find and very clean. The store is neat and has birds to keep you occupied. If you have children I would suggest the full or half bucket. For... More

The safari was well worth it. Kids had fun feeding the animals from the bus. We were surprised by the close encounters you get with the animals.

Great place to visit. Love going early in the day when the animals are hungry and the sun is not so hot! Make sure and buy some feed because their is some hungry animals at the petting zoo area.

I came across this place looking for things to do around Alexandria. I could not have been happier! We spent a good part of the day here and enjoyed every minute of it. The safari was fantastic! Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable and there was a good variety of animals on the tour. I found the overall value... More

We had a blast feeding and petting the camels, ostriches, emus, cows, deer and other wild animals from the safari bus and the petting zoo area. Tons of adorable baby deer and a couple zebra and zebra-horse! Also, two giraffe you can feed as well. A little pricey and shorter ride than expected but definitely a fun stop.

Came here for a birthday party. It was fun but was a short "safari" trip. A bit pricey, but the kids had fun and the Italian ice served is great
