The staff is also very friendly! Best part of our trip was capturing on video one of the animals stealing my daughters cup... More

There is a petting zoo and you can ride around in a guided bus and get really close to the animals. Hold on to all of your belongings or a camel just might reach his mouth into the bus and... More

This is a great place to bring the whole family. Gone Wild Safari is a different experience from a zoo. Your able to get an up close, one on one glimpse of these exotic animals. You can also feed certain animals from the palm of your hand. The staff is informative and helpful.

I took my mother and uncle (both seniors) to this park when we visited Pineville. We had so much fun. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are easy to find and very clean. The store is neat and has birds to keep you occupied. If you have children I would suggest the full or half bucket. For... More

The safari was well worth it. Kids had fun feeding the animals from the bus. We were surprised by the close encounters you get with the animals.

Great place to visit. Love going early in the day when the animals are hungry and the sun is not so hot! Make sure and buy some feed because their is some hungry animals at the petting zoo area.
