Yes, it is a bit pricey (20/adult), but the memories will be with us every time we talk about out Tennessee road trip! I don't think a super-wide auto or a large truck would do well on the hilly, gravelly, narrow track (had a couple...More

I guarantee you will be laughing before you leave. All the animals were nice. Didn't have any experience with any aggressive animals. Probably the best Safari I have been in, I have been to 3 different ones.

This is a small (took us about 45 minutes to drive through very slowly) drive-thru zoo located about an hour outside of Gatlinburg. There were deer, elk, goats, bison, yaks, zebra, llamas, and water buffalo to feed. It was a lot of fun to feed...More

My kids love to go here. The animals are very friendly if you don't count the ruffle feathered goose that don't take kindly to hand feeding. The incredible bison on location are amazing. We took the trailer through the park.

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
