This is a really fun way to see some unusual animals. We bought corn to feed them and began our slow drive through the park. We opened our windows to feed the zebras and they came right up and stuck their heads in! Be warned about the emus! They are downright evil! They tried to get into the car, in a much ruder fashion than the zebras. Then they blocked our van when we rolled the windows up, and chased us when we started driving again.

Along the drive, you'll also see antelope, buffalo, crocodiles, and more. Before or after the drive you can see peacocks, large boas and a variety of lizards wandering their own habitat. And you can walk in with the turtles. No, these are not the little box turtles you kept as kids. They're a little bit bigger than that. Definitely a fun way to spend an hour or two.

We were pleasanlty surprized. I thought the place was going to be lame. When we got there the kids were excited and squealing at the idea of a safari. The place looked like a mired up wet pasture full of livestock and that is what it it is. So if you are expecting Bush Gardens forget it but we loved it, the animals surrounding the car and trying to stick there faces in the windows had our kids going nuts. The place had deer, bison, exotic breeds of cattle, a camel, a zebra, emus, ostrichs and alligators along the drive. We loved the animals outside the drive thru part as much as the drive thru part. They had big tubs with logs and rocks that exhibited dozens of baby turtles in one and older ones in another. Inside a housetrailor they had a very nice reptile collection including huge frogs, lizard and snakes, lots of baby alligators and a Nile Crocidile. This exhibit is much better than the junky area around the trailor projects so make sure you check it out. In a lare outside enclosure they had ring tailed lemurs and a monkey. The monkey was kind of hard to get a good look at but it still facinated the kids. They also had big tortoises walking around in this area. The totroises would chase after you if they thought you had food, kids got a big kick out of that and started pretending to be the Tortoise and the Hare from Aesops fables. They had some more aligators in this area to see as well. I don't think you can go wrong with this place our family really enjoyed it.
