Take a walk on the wild side 

 Tour guides will take you on a 2-hour journey throughout our scenic 13-acre zoo. Guides use this time to educate our guests about our exotic animal ambassadors and conservation issues facing their wild counterparts.

 

The first half of the tour is a walking tour, while the second half allows guests to meet exciting animals up close! 

Guests have the opportunity to meet a variety of small reptiles, mammals, and even feed a two-toed sloth!
