I can't say enough good things about this place. We went for their Fall Festival. We got to feed the tigers and my daughter even played tug of war with one! They do amazing work.

Will not be disappointed. Wear good walking shoes. Don't forget to take water with you. Take lots of pictures. Loved the lemurs.
