You can even climb aboard a camel, one of the park's other four-legged residents, and take part in a guided ride.

  • Not wanting to sit in traffic and wait in lines at Disney we discovered this fantastic ranch. Caring, funny, and informative guides made the experience fantastic. More than any zoo this ranch gives you the chance to see well kept and happy animals to interact with. Great experience and fantastic animals!
  • Excellent place to go as a group and see wide variety of animals up close. The safari tour was fun and informative. Feeding the giraffes was a highlight of the tour. Must make reservations, well worth it.
  • Another wonderful sanctuary. I would consider these people researchers. I learned SOOO much about animals and I thought I already knew it all. :) My favorite part was meeting the friendly camel, the otters, the monkeys, and all the knowledge that was presented. Can't wait to wear my new t-shirt support of their program!
  • Great place! A bit pricey but it's worth it for everything you get to see. All the animals get up close and are out in natural habitats. They all seemed happy and healthy. I loved that they went into depth talking about each animal. Overall great place. Make sure to bring a camera because there's lots of chances for some really good pictures.
  • We wish there was a rating lower than one star. Rude employees. We called ahead and were told they were open. When we arrived we were treated like trespassers and told to leave. Even allowing for a misunderstanding in the phone conversation, there was no excuse for the rudeness we encountered upon arrival. We recommend going to Tampa’s Lowery Park Zoo.
