I went to check out this zoo today with my son. But when we got there the gate read "closed". I called and when someone answered they told me that they closed a couple years ago.

Unbelievably green and lovely place. All the animal cages spotless, very clean. Animals very healthy. We enjoyed seeing the monkeys, bears, and the cheetahs in particular. Lots of beautiful animals to see. Animal expert lead us on the tour and talked about each animal and answered all of our questions. Wish we had more time to spend an entire day... More

I have purchased the Family Season Pass, offered by Northwood Ranch, for the past seven years. My family and I have never had a bad experience there and have never thought the animals to be in poor living habitats. It is a great experience and a knowledgeable one at that. The employees are always around to talk and will sometimes... More

We are so angry with the reviews that say this is a bad sanctuary. All animals can not be stimulated at all times. I myself find life to be boring at times. We believe Tony to be doing these animals a good service. Of course these creatures don't live in the Ritz or Caesar Palace , if they did they... More

Our visit was quite enjoyable as we arrived 1 hour before feeding time.The lions , tigers, lynx's and grizzly bears put on show for everyone there. Animals were in excellent shape - well looked after and very animate. The lion cub was just too cute, sadly he was by himself because his mom did not want to look after him.... More

I would recommend to everyone to visit this amazing Zoo. It was a really great experience for our family, even though we are all adults. We really enjoyed a close look to clean, well-fed, and taken a good care animals. The only thing I did not like about this experience - we had some troubles to find it. There are... More

Amazing up close visits with the animals, unlike some previous reviews me and my family found the animals to look very happy, at peace, and calm in their enclosures. The animals also kept themselves well groomed which is a sing that their happy. They had lot's of space and it was noticeable that after hours they were probably let out... More

Great variety of animals. All very fit and well cared for, including a 40! Year old Black Bear whose teeth were removed in time past in another "attraction". Stunning cats, Kodiacs, Grizzlies, and truly exotic cats you've never seen before. Lemurs, apes monkeys baboons, birds snakes... All competently housed in CLEAN and appropriate pens. It is a Zoo, not a... More

This is the first zoo I have been too where you can get very close to the animals and watch the feedings at 3 pm each day. I was lucky and got to bottle feed a baby tiger and lion. The owners are very friendly and offers guests to bottlefeed the animals. They have Night Safari's and you can look... More
