Overview
More
Don't expect sidewalk viewing of lions, tigers or great apes, rather friendly interactions with the feathered and furry. Visitors can purchase animal feed items, such as parakeet sticks, and watch as the colorful birds land at their fingertips; feed cups to hand feed giant watusi and gentle llamas on the safari wagon ride, or bottle feed little lambs and goats. Roer's Zoofari also holds a "Creature Feature" at 10, noon and 2pm where guests enjoy an informal animal meet and greet with a parrot, ferret, alligator, snake or other small animal.

We went with our 17 month and it was a fun visit. There are quite a few animals and it was fun. I felt it is overpriced and the feeds sold are definitely overpriced.

Small zoo that focuses on farm animals, but also has a small "safari" with other animals. A little overpriced for what it has, but kids enjoyed it. Hours in the late winter/early spring are shorter.

We were there mid day and it was pretty warm but the animals were all very willing to interact. It was a lot of fun.
