Wander at your own speed. Interact with many free roaming animals, get expert views of what you are seeing. Excellent hands-on experience for young kids as well as adults.

As others have mentioned, this is less-than-a-zoo in the sense of the small enclosures and the property itself being more like that of a private home, but when the animals are as happy as these appear to be, it's hard to find fault with the...More

Adults are $10 each and kids are $8. If any are under 2 they are free. As another posted, you might want to check out Living Social and Groupon for cheaper options.
