"Great experience!"

August 3, 2020 - 

We loved visiting the Exotic Resort Zoo. Entering the park was easy and convenient. The bags of feed are HUGE and well worth the $6. Right into the entrance of the "safari" you are greeted with animals ready to be up close and personal with you. Great fun for all ages!


"We had the best time!!!"

August 3, 2020 - 

We brought my 2 year old son out for the weekend and had the best time as a family. He loved the zebra’s and we were amazed to see a bison so up close. Thank you for bringing smiles to our faces during this time wear safe activities are very limited. We’ll be returning again and hope to enjoy the full experience with y’all. Thank you for a fun weekend!


"Enjoyed It"

August 3, 2020 - 

Overall, we enjoyed it. A lot of deer and related animals. Roads a little rough in places.


"So much fun!"

August 3, 2020 - 

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours! The animals are so much fun to feed and we hope to be back soon!


"Perfect social distancing activity"

August 3, 2020 - 

This was a perfect outing for the family. It took at least half the day to get there, drive through the zoo and drive back. Definitely a fun adventure especially during these crazy times.


"Loved"

August 2, 2020 - 

Great experience for the kids!


"Awesome experience for everyone "

August 2, 2020 - 

The drive thru safari was awesome, my daughter loved it and so did we! Deff plan on going back in the near future


"Wonderful!"

August 2, 2020 - 

You might consider a separate line for those who have paid on line. We had a great time!


"Kids loved it"

August 2, 2020 - 

Wasn’t very organized with the girls over seeing tickets, a few of us set in the left lane way before at least 10 cars and those were moved in first, they explained the were short handed but still doesn’t explain unfairly letting those other cars go ahead ...


"Awesome Activity - Social Distancing"

August 1, 2020 - 

Great time for the kids when they are all stuck inside. They interacted with the animals and had a ball!


"The Exotic Resort Zoo"

August 1, 2020 - 

Great day ... lots of fun!


"So Much Fun"

August 1, 2020 - 

Never expected all the animals to just be right there ready to be fed. The camel was my fav. He was relentless! Wonderful time! Thank you and now considering renting a cabin. Ready to come back!!


"Amazing!"

August 1, 2020 - 

Was hoping there would be a wider variety of animals but still an amazing experience


"Excellent "

August 1, 2020 - 

We had a very nice time!!!! Highly recommended


"Great! "

July 31, 2020 - 

Grandson absolutely loved it!


"A Fun Time for the Whole Family"

July 31, 2020 - 

What an awesome experience up close and personal with the animals! The zebras, buffalos, and all the other animals were such fun to feed and interact with. Highly recommend as a family outing!


"Fun activity"

July 31, 2020 - 

We had a great time feeding the animal with our grandson!


"Great "

July 30, 2020 - 

Lot’s of fun


"Awesome "

July 30, 2020 - 

Best I have drove through


"Ahhhhhmazing "

July 30, 2020 - 

Literally one of THE FUNNEST things we have ever done. Wasn’t expecting it because the website looks like mostly deer , but it was honestly SO FUN. Very worth the price !!!


"Up Close and Personal"

July 29, 2020 - 

Despite the COVID19 pandemic alteration in activities, this was a great getaway to see and feed multiple animals. Even though there were no guides due to the pandemic, I am looking forward to maybe going next time and a sheet of paper with pictures and names of the types of animals to help with self-guiding/educating ourselves. Worth the trip and grateful that this place exists just outside Austin, Texas.


"Thank you "

July 29, 2020 - 

That was the most fun we’ve had in months. The boys were so excited and can’t wait to come back. We only wish we’d bought more food.


"So Much Fun!"

July 29, 2020 - 

We went for a little social distancing fun and it far exceeded my expectations. I had 3 teens and a 9 year old and everyone loved it. We can’t decide if we like the zebra or camel more. The animals are all lovely! They come right up to your car and even stick their heads in. I bought 3 bags of food for me and 4 kids and it was perfect. Definitely go!!!


"Awesome"

July 29, 2020 - 

Awesome experience


"FANTASTIC!"

July 28, 2020 - 

We loved the Exotic Zoo and it was a treat for us to make the drive from Austin! The only suggestion would be to maybe have a spot along the ride where we can purchase more food to feed the animals :)


"Amazing!!!"

July 27, 2020 - 

It was so much fun!! One bag of food per person is enough - but you’ll all want your own food bag.


"It was great"

July 27, 2020 - 

Staff was very nice and helpful and the kids had a blast. Thank you!


"Fun for the family"

July 27, 2020 - 

The online ticket purchase process was easy. We had a nice drive from San Antonio. Short wait to get in once we arrived. The kids had great fun feeding the animals!


"An enjoyable afternoon"

July 27, 2020 - 

My 4 year old granddaughter was thrilled with all the animals and wanted to make sure each one got some food. The bag of food you buy is very generous. It's a little difficult to use the map on your phone to read descriptions of the various animals when you also want to take photos with your phone. But that's probably the nerd in me that wants to read about all the animals. This was our second trip with various grandchildren. It was a hot day in Central Texas today so it seemed we didn't see as many different animals as many were resting in the shade..


"Good"

July 27, 2020 - 

The only thing we were unhappy with was how the cars all backed up at the same place a lot and people got agitated with ones ahead. Would be helpful if people could pull to the side of the road if they want to sit in a spot longer so others could pass.


"Can not wait for the guided tour to open back up."

July 26, 2020 - 

This is a great place for kids to feed all kinds of animals. Watch out for the Camel he's like that one cousin that shows up unannounced and stays for way to long.


"So much fun and worth the drive!"

July 26, 2020 - 

We had a blast and would definitely recommend it. Especially something safe to do while social distancing. It was a lot of fun!


"Family fun"

July 26, 2020 - 

Animals were very interactive, bring a camera and buy an extra bag of food or two.


"Amazing experience"

July 26, 2020 - 

Perfect experience for the entire family. Perfect for social distancing.


"Fantastic time....Again!!!"

July 25, 2020 - 

We had an amazing time. This is our second time visiting and will definitely be back!


"Lots of squeals and laughs"

July 25, 2020 - 

We took our grandkids and they had a blast!!! They are ready to go again


"Great family fun!"

July 25, 2020 - 

My husband and I took our two young daughters and they loved it!


"Amazing!!!"

July 24, 2020 - 

We had so much fun!!!!


"Great family fun!!"

July 24, 2020 - 

Very easy, no contact adventure!! Animals are super engaged even during the heat. Great daily adventure from san antonio


"Wonderful time "

July 24, 2020 - 

Took our daughter for her 6th birthday and she loved it!!! Save your feed bags for the entire trip; lots of hungry beautiful animals...


"Loved the camels!"

July 24, 2020 - 

It was a fun way to spend a few hours. Recommend going early as lines are short! Can’t wait to return when everything is open.


"fun"

July 23, 2020 - 

liked the interaction with all the animals


"Animals galore"

July 23, 2020 - 

We thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Staff was friendly and helpful. Animals were so much fun.


"Great time! "

July 23, 2020 - 

My family and I had a great time! The animals come right to the car and were fun to interact with. Steady flow of cars, but not busy.


"Lots of fun!"

July 22, 2020 - 

My 2 grandsons, their mother and I laughed so much especially when a camel reached into the car and grabbed my bag of food. It turned out to be a tug-of-war between camel and my daughter for the bag!! You might want to warn visitors to keep bags of food away from window. Overall, the whole adventure was fun. Looking forward to going again.


"Awesome"

July 22, 2020 - 

I love that there are different animals here, I’ve been to the natural bridge caverns one and was kind of worried about if it would be the same, but the amount of feed y’all give is awesome and the difference and quantity in animals/species is so fun


"Very good"

July 22, 2020 - 

We enjoyed ourselves


"Loved it"

July 22, 2020 - 

Our 8 yr old grandson loved it!! We loved it as well.🤗🤗🤗🤗


"So much fun!"

July 21, 2020 - 

My son and I enjoyed petting and feeding the animals. Our favorites were the Highland cows, the buffalo, and the smaller sweet llama that let us snuggle him. We will be back soon.


"We loved all the animals! The sign up online made it easy to arrange tickets too."

July 20, 2020 - 

It was a great event. Loved feeding the deer and seeing the babies, but we laughed more when the buffalo stuck out his tongue for food. Moose also delighted us. Fun for kids and parents. I liked we could stay in the car and still feed the animals. Thank you!


"It was fun"

July 20, 2020 - 

We had a great time. The animals are so great. There are a ton of deer but also some really fun Bison, Camels, Ibex and a huge Reindeer. The line to get in makes you think it will be so crowded but it does thin out a bit. They do wipe down everything like clip boards and pins that you have to use prior to entry so it is Covid safe. I would highly recommend it. Might be less crowded during the week.


"Great fun"

July 20, 2020 - 

This place is awesome!! Animals were fun. Staff was great.


"Amazing and so fun! "

July 19, 2020 - 

Great time and looots of animals to feed to feed and touch!


"Excellent"

July 19, 2020 - 

Had an excellent time. My 11 month old had a blast! Beware the ostrich!


"Grandson loved it."

July 19, 2020 - 

2 1/2 year old fed all the animals out of the car and loved it 👍🏻


"So much fun!!!"

July 19, 2020 - 

We needed something to for my sons 13th birthday during Covid. We had a blast. The animals were very friendly especially the camels.😊


"Excellent!! "

July 19, 2020 - 

There are so many animals and they are all so friendly! But 2 bags of food so you can feed the long tongue cows at the end!!


"Love the drive through zoo!"

July 19, 2020 - 

I can't wait to come back for a guided tour! All the animals are so nice.


"Good"

July 19, 2020 - 

It was pretty good, not enough variety of animals though..and some of the interesting-looking ones were too far away to see well. And there were mostly deer varieties, got tired of looking at them. I know it’s hard because of Coronavirus and we can’t take a tour..


"Nice park"

July 19, 2020 - 

Nice place, lots of animals. Get there early it gets crowded.


"Amazing"

July 19, 2020 -

Highly recommended Johnson City Zoo! We had a wonderful time and got to get up close to some amazing animals! Get there early!


"So much fun!"

July 18, 2020 - 

We really enjoyed this experience with our 2 and 4 year old! The animals were very gentle and both kiddos loved feeding them!


"A lot of fun for kids and adults"

July 18, 2020 - 

Loved our experience, I recommend buying at least two bags of feed. It is very exciting to feed the animals and we ran out about 3/4 of the way in. The camels can't get enough. So fun!


"So Much Fun!!"

July 18, 2020 - 

We took our grandchildren during COVID. So much fun!! We all loved it! Highly recommend.


"Great experience "

July 18, 2020 - 

Both the toddler and the teenagers had fun seeing the animals up close and feeding them. Recommend if you’re looking for social distancing options for the family. Lots of animals and the zoo itself was kept up nicely.


"Awesome!"

July 17, 2020 - 

Once in a lifetime experience to be so up close to all the animals!!!! This was very cool to be able to hand feed the animals!!! The camels especially like to stretch there heads in side your car and say hello and of course get some food!!! Would definitely recommend anyone that loves to see wildlife up close and personal!!!!!


"So worth it! Highly recommend."

July 17, 2020 - 

Loved our trip - wonderful way to get our 4 year old out of the house. :)


"Great time and safe too."

July 16, 2020 - 

Great time. The animals can we're so beautiful and friendly.


"A Great Time"

July 16, 2020 - 

The zoo was fantastic. The animals came right up to the car and waited fairly patiently for food. The funniest animal was the camel who helped himself right to the bag sitting next to my son.


"Awesome "

July 16, 2020 - 

We love it, took my niece’s who are visiting from Illinois and the had so much fun. The buffalo and ostrich were a big hit.


"Special Day!"

July 16, 2020 - 

It is hard to find something exciting, yet safe, to do during these crazy times. We decided to celebrate our anniversary visiting the Exotic Resort Zoo. From the very sweet staff ,going out of their way to insure it was a great day, to all of the beautiful animals- this was a great experience. We had a ton of laughs and have many videos and pictures of feeding the huge amount of animals at the zoo! Thank you, Exotic Resort Zoo!


"Great!"

July 16, 2020 - 

Tons of fun! One year old told all of the animals “Hi!”


"Good"

July 16, 2020 - 

Afraid We would run over a deer. It was fun to see all the babies.


"COVID sucks"

July 16, 2020 - 

Would be a great place to stay and see/spend time around animals. The drive through was fun enough many of the animals are extremely friendly. Not much for variety but for younger kids and those who aren’t familiar with wild life it was a fun side trip.


"We never get tired of going"

July 15, 2020 - 

This was the third time this year that we have gone. We love driving through in our car.


"Amazing"

July 15, 2020 - 

We took our 3 kids for our daughters Bday. The entire family had a blast. It was a new and exciting adventure for us. Lots of giggles were had by all. Beautiful animals and so friendly. Thank you!


"Fun time!"

July 14, 2020 - 

Nice change of pace. Other than check in is contactless. Fun for kids & adults alike to get out and enjoy the animals. 1 feed bag is definitely a must. Could probably do with 2 feed bags for 4 people


"Y’all this place is awesome "

July 14, 2020 - 

Myself, my 3 year old and my senior mom came here And absolutely LOVED IT!!! Worth every penny


"Fun time for all ages!"

July 14, 2020 - 

Had a great time, animals were all very interactive, well worth the money, took just a little over an hour to drive through. Only down side is your car WILL be scratched up, but had a great time!


"Food"

July 13, 2020 - 

This was our first time. I would have appreciated if we were told to buy 2-3 bags of food instead of only one. Just add a recommendation comment on the web site and that is all.


"Very good"

July 13, 2020 - 

We took our 1 year old granddaughter, she absolutely loved it. The only thing better would have been the petting zoo. Thank you.


"Very enjoyable to see that children's reactions"

July 13, 2020 - 

Need to buy extra fee because by the time you get to the end those poor animals on the Endo get anything


"Great time!"

July 13, 2020 - 

Lots of animals and they all come to the cars.


"Fun with grandson "

July 13, 2020 - 

We loved the zoo. Our 3yr old grandson was scared when the ostrich and camel put their heads in car. The camel got a bite of feed from the console of car.


"So much fun"

July 13, 2020 - 

In days of social distancing, this was a perfect way to spend some time. It is enjoyable for all ages. Highly recommend getting multiple bags of food so you have plenty for all the animals. Definitely will go again.


"Best interactive zoo drive-thru "

July 13, 2020 - 

Great staff and experience. Recommend buying a few bags of feed for the feeding we ran through 4 pretty quickly since plenty of friendly animals are not shy to get to your car window


"Fully of Belly Laughs"

July 13, 2020 - 

My family and I had a blast. My kids highly enjoyed their experience. They keep asking me when are we going back. Our next visit will be an overnight stay in one of the cabins. The animals were so sweet and friendly. We all loved it! Thank you!


"Super fun, 10/10 recommend"

July 13, 2020 - 

It was definitely an experience worth having. The variety of animals was nice, the time from start to finish was a good length and it was just super fun getting to feed and visit the animals up close and personal.


"So much fun!"

July 12, 2020 - 

Such a neat experience!!


"Excellent Day Activity"

July 12, 2020 - 

We took our 20 month old to experience this and it was fantastic. The staff and team are great and they are handling the pandemic excellently. Their set up is safe and clean and the animals coming up to be fed were a blast for all three of us. Highly recommend!


"Great fun!"

July 12, 2020 - 

So much fun for the whole family! The animals were so friendly.


"Great experience "

July 12, 2020 - 

great time and employees were really nice.


"Great experience! "

July 12, 2020 - 

We had such a great experience and lovely time at The Exotic Resort Zoo! We will be back!


"Excellent"

July 11, 2020 - 

Kids loved feeding the animals from the car


"Great time with the family"

July 11, 2020 - 

Enjoyed the friendly animals


"Great!"

July 11, 2020 - 

Better than I expected and much more in terms of the amount of animals you get to feed!


"Fun experience "

July 11, 2020 - 

Brought our three year old granddaughter and it didn’t disappoint. Although she was hesitant to feed the animals, she loved seeing them up close. Enjoyable time!


"Excellent day trip! "

July 11, 2020 - 

Such a good experience and my toddler loved it. Recommend going early.


"So fun. "

July 11, 2020 - 

My 5 yo daughter and I have been twice through the drive through. Never gets old. We laugh the whole time. Such fun.


"Super fun"

July 11, 2020 - 

It was a great experience! Thank you!


"Awesome Experience "

July 11, 2020 - 

My first time to any type this of zoo/safari like this in 35 years. This was a wonderful experience, I have never been so close to animals from outside of those in this country. Another trip is being planned for the 5 of us to go again.


"Thank You"

July 11, 2020 - 

The kids went crazy with giggles! That’s the best and all the rating you ever need.


"We loved the drive through zoo!"

July 11, 2020 - 

We had to best time feeding all the animals!! Thank you for an amazing day!!


"So much fun!"

July 10, 2020 - 

This wasn't what i expected and so much more fun than thought.. My young son (3 y/o) absolutely loved it. We'll be going back for sure!


"Fun Family Trip"

July 9, 2020 - 

Our family had a great visit and enjoyed feeding all of the animals. The staff was warm and welcoming! We will definitely be returning again in the future.


"Awesome!"

July 9, 2020 - 

Had a great time.


"Amazing - Worth every penny"

July 9, 2020 - 

Needed to get our 2 1/2 year old out of the house given we've been couped up for 4 months now. Wife suggested the drive through zoo which we weren't sure what to expect. THIS WAS AWESOME!!! We have amazing photos of my wife and I feeding buffalo, camels, deer, reindeer, and all sorts of gazelle type animals, and all from our seats in the car. Highly highly recommend taking the trip to anyone within a couple hours. We drove just over 60 minutes to get there.


"Great for whole family"

July 9, 2020 - 

loved the animals up close. we went through 2 bags of food which was about right for the 4 of us. The biggest negatives are #1 folks who stop in road for VERY LONG periods and you can't pass. #2 you need to wash hands at end and no place at exit so bring your own wash towels and water, etc.


"Fun family time"

July 9, 2020 - 

Animals came right up to feed. Kids loved it. Great ting to do during the pandemic


"amazing"

July 9, 2020 - 

a much needed quick road trip from austin! couldn't stop laughing!


"Such a fun time!"

July 8, 2020 - 

This place is not just for kids! I visited with my friend and we had the BEST time! Pro-Tips: There are 3-4 sections of animals, so plan your feeding accordingly. Be aware of where you are holding your feed bag in your car. I had mine in my lap and one of the camels reached right into my car with his big ole head and tried to grab my entire bag of feed! It was a mess and a good time. Be sure and bring some kind of disinfectant wipes for after you leave the ranch ; there will be slobber and dirt on you if you're doing it right. Will definitely be back-


"Fun and needed day out"

July 8, 2020 - 

I got to spend some fun time with my teens - not many ways to do that these days. Thanks for taking care of all these animals.


"So much fun!"

July 8, 2020 - 

We had so much fun! Only thing i would say is overestimate the amount of food you want to buy, you’ll run out quick! Also, the camels will eat the bags out of your hands, inside the car.


"Exotic"

July 8, 2020 - 

Loved it!


"Great way to spend a summer morning!"

July 7, 2020 - 

The squeals of shock and delight as the animals stuck their heads in our car and my kids fed them from their hands were worth every penny!


"Great time!!!"

July 7, 2020 - 

Go in the morning! The animals are excited to see you!


"AWESOME!"

July 7, 2020 - 

It’s really awesome to feed many animals on the road.


"Excellent "

July 7, 2020 - 

Wonderful anniversary


"Animals!"

July 7, 2020 - 

The best one in central Texas. Will not disappoint.


"Lots of interaction"

July 7, 2020 - 

Loved it! The Zebra that catches food in his mouth was the icing on the cake!! Got to see my favorite Scottish coo!


"So much fun for kids of ALL ages!"

July 6, 2020 - 

We have been before two years ago with grandkids and stayed in their cabins.....loved doing that. Last minute change of plans for today and decided to make a day trip with our granddaughters as they had been asking to go back again. We all had so much fun and actually liked being able to drive our own car instead of riding on the trailer as in the past. Highly recommend this zoo at any time, but especially now as a safe day trip during the Covid-19 time.


"Great time at Drive through zoo! "

July 6, 2020 - 

Driving through the zoo and feeding the animals was a wonderful way to enjoy God’s creation! Thank you for the opportunity!


"drive thru experience with granddaughters"

July 6, 2020 - 

We enjoyed out experience today! lots of animals came up to the car and windows. bought food to feed the animals, which all animals enjoy. would love to stay in a cabin sometime! Fun for All ages.......


"Awesome!!"

July 5, 2020 - 

Very well run and the animals are well taken care of!


"Loved the Experience! "

July 5, 2020 - 

This was our first time here and will continue to bring our son (18mo) here every year!! It was a blast interacting with the deer and feeding them! We had camels, highland cows and buffalo stick their heads in the car too!! So fun! And it was nice to stay in the comfort of our A/C in this heat!


"Great time"

July 5, 2020 - 

We really enjoyed our time there. The animals were very friendly and interactive. We especially loved the camels and the buffalo. Thanks for a nice time.


"Fun"

July 5, 2020 - 

Worth the drive my 3 and 11 yr old loved the experience, we went through our 3 bags of feed would maybe get 4 next time or just not feed all the deer, the whole drive throughout the zoo was about an hour would def come back.


"Wonderful "

"Our experience "

Good


"Great"

July 1, 2020 - 

The only issue I saw, were the camels at the front gates that were blocking the cars! It was funny, but we could not go anywhere for quite some time because the car in front of us could not go anywhere.


"So much fun!"

July 1, 2020 - 

My family and I had a great time driving through and feeding all the animals. We will be back!


"Perfect COVID activity"

July 1, 2020 - 

The drive-through was a really great and personal experience in COVID times. I wish there was a better way to tell how long the tour is - since we didn't know, we ran our of feed toward the end and felt bad for the animals who came up to our car and didn't receive anything. Bring hand wipes! And plan to vaccuum your car our afterwards. Wonderful family fun!


"Great place for the whole family "

June 30, 2020 - 

Took our 2 kids, but mom and dad had a blast getting really up close and personal with the animals! It is a huge place, all the animals roam free and seem really happy. Highly recommend


"Fun and the staff is very nice"

June 30, 2020 - 

I've gone on the weekend and during the week. Both was great - the staff is friendly and can. They are great with distancing and wearing masks. All the animals are fun and the variety is wonderful. Bring some towels - because there is a good chance you might get a little dirty being that up close and personal with the animals.


"Great Drive Through Safari"

June 30, 2020 - 

Loved being able to drive through this. My 2 year old loved it as well as myself and grandma. Highly recommended!!!


"Love it"

June 30, 2020 - 

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint!! Lots of interaction with the animals!! My kiddos have the best time! We bought 6 bags of feed and felt like we had plenty...we did run out close to the end but we had thrown a little extra thinking we were done at one spot but wasn’t quite the end. We will def be back!!


"Variety of Animals"

June 29, 2020 - 

There were so many animals and the staff was very courteous. Ran out of food even though we thought we had way too much to start with. Lots of big licks from the animals. Great fun.


"Fun"

June 29, 2020 - 

Liked driving through on our own - especially with a 4 1/2 year!


"Great time!"

June 28, 2020 - 

We had a great time. Our group included 2 boys (age 5 and6). This was a perfect way to spend some quality fanmily time.


"Such a fun quarantine activity "

June 28, 2020 - 

Wonderful animals, staff, and location!!


"Fun family experience"

June 28, 2020 - 

Great experience with our family. Tons of animals to see and feed!


"Great drive through safari!"

June 28, 2020 - 

The land and animals appeared well kept. We came from Kyle, TX and the drive there was beautiful too! We would go back for sure!


"Great Time!"

June 28, 2020 - 

Wife and I with 2 little ones had a blast! They had been talking about a zoo for a while and this made their day! Feeding the animals was easy and very hands on! Could get a little dirty hands but loved it.


"Wonderful Experience"

June 28, 2020 - 

Such a great escape from home during this unusual time. My family had the best time. The animals were super friendly and entertaining!


"Great Fun"

June 28, 2020 - 

Definitely putting this on the list for things to do when people come to visit!


"Kids loved it"

June 27, 2020 - 

Nice way to get the kids out while staying safe.


"Very awesome"

June 27, 2020 - 

Very awesome


"Up close and personal "

June 27, 2020 - 

We thoroughly enjoyed the zoo and it’s friendly staff and beautiful inhabitants! To see these gorgeous creatures up close and to feel their skin and antlers while feeding them was a wonderful way to connect with our cohabitants of this amazing planet. I am sure we will be back.


"great break from covid"

June 27, 2020 - 

We've been quarantining since March and needed a change of pace for the day. My son (11 years old) absolutely had a blast. The camel that kept putting his head in my kid's lap was probably his favorite part, while mine was getting to pet a furry cow! Thank you, Exotic Resort Zoo!


"What a great experience!"

June 27, 2020 - 

I was a little worried at how far the Camel's could stick their neck into my suv. He was eating feed off the floor. But it was great fun. Had a blast and would highly recommend. Next time we will be renting a cabin.


"Very good experience."

June 27, 2020 - 

Fun and safe


"Great adventure!"

June 26, 2020 - 

Buy more food than you expect to need! This was our first time and we didn’t get enough for all the animals. We loved it!


"Great activity amidst COVID "

June 26, 2020 - 

Our toddler loved it. It seemed like there are mostly different species of deer but still took us about an hour to go through. Even though it was raining, the animals still came up to the car.


"Excellent"

June 25, 2020 - 

Clean and well run. Animals were fun and no sign of distress.


"Excellent "

June 25, 2020 - 

We had an amazing experience. Loved all the animals!


"So much fun!"

June 25, 2020 - 

With my sister and her family in the car behind us, it was the perfect way to have a family trip while social distancing! My kids and I were in our car, feeding the animals, laughing at the way each animal searched for food (sometimes out of our hand, sometimes thrown from the car), and how amazing the experience was. Will definitely do again but more food next time (order enough for a bag and 1/2 for each person)!


"4"

June 24, 2020 - 

Wanted to see more bigger animals like elephants, giraffes, hippos, camels, etc.


"So much fun"

June 24, 2020 - 

We loved it and the kids are so used to being in the National parks that feeding the animals from the car was so strange but fun.


"Loved it"

June 24, 2020 - 

Took my hubby and son for father's day and they had such a great time together. Loved all the animals, they were so friendly! We will be back!


"Great experience"

June 24, 2020 - 

super easy and quick!!


"Great Activity for Young Kiddos and Families"

June 23, 2020 - 

We had myself and another family in our car that included a 6 year old and a 2 year old. We all had a blast! So many different types of animals came right up to our car and gladly took the feed from our hands. The camels were a little aggressive (must have been super hungry!) but it added to the fun of the experience. Staff was great and all were wearing masks. Animals seemed well cared for as well.


"Great Day"

June 23, 2020 - 

My family all had a great time at the zoo feeding all the animals and laughing at the Buffalo long tongue the camel.

June 21, 2020 - 

Overall really nice facility, staff very well mannered and helpful. Had a great time and would highly recommend to anyone


"Outstanding!"

June 21, 2020 - 

This was the best experience! Being able to drive through and interact with sea animals was so much fun. At other places they do not allow you to interact with the animals like you do here. We loved that the animals were so active as well.


"The Whole Family Enjoyed!"

June 21, 2020 - 

We had a great time at the zoo! The kids loved feeding the animals and seeing them so up close. There was one camel that just kept following and putting his head all the way into the window. The family was super excited and loving it!!!!! Great family outing!


"Very good"

June 21, 2020 - 

Omg we had a blast. We lived it. Thank you so much


"Very nice time."

June 21, 2020 - 

The animals were great to see. I thought they would all be in the shade during a summer afternoon, but they were happy to crowd the vehicle in search of food.


"Great family experience!"

June 21, 2020 - 

Great family time! Perfect to stay safe inside our car and yet get out of the house and awAy from quarantine! Best time we’ve had in months! Thank you Johnson City Exotic Zoo!


"Fun Family Trip!"

"Marvelous Time"

June 21, 2020 - 

We had a great time. It was a major hit with the family. I highly recommend it.


"Fun drive through"

June 20, 2020 - 

We’ve been here many times pre-Covid. We actually enjoyed the car drive through more than the normal tours. Lots and lots of animals! Love that you can buy plenty of good. Very safe. Highly recommend as a safe pandemic family activity.


"Really nice car tour of the zoo"

June 20, 2020 - 

Workers there were very nice and cordial. It fin to feed the animals, take pics and commune with the animals while driving through their domain.


"Kids loved feeding all the animals"

June 20, 2020 - 

My kids and I weren't able to take the regular guided tour because of COVID restrictions, so we took the drive-through route. My kids loved seeing all the different types of deer, plus the zebras, ostriches, camels, and bison. There were a lot of baby animals, too. The animals come right up to your car and stick their heads in through the windows to be fed, which is pretty funny. The staff gave us a coupon to come back when COVID restrictions are over so that we can get the full tour, and my kids are already asking when we can go back.


"amazing"

June 20, 2020 - 

my daughter had a blast and employees are amazing


"Excellent "

June 20, 2020 - 

A fun time and great value.

"What a great experience! "

June 20, 2020 - 

My kids and I just loved this! We did the drive through experience and wow! I highly recommend you get lots of sacks of food!


"The best we have been to"

June 19, 2020 - 

We have visited dozens of zoos and drive through zoos and we love this one best!!!!!


"Absolutely Loved It!"

June 18, 2020 - 

So many animals to be able to interact with, feed and get drooled on! From the deer & Llamas to the elk camels and even cows! They were all so sweet and made our 4 year old daughter husband and I laughed so hard sometimes nothing came out of our mouths! Love love loved it! Can’t wait to visit again!


"Great experience for kids!"

June 18, 2020 - 

Staff are friendly and nice...Animals are cute and that was one great experience for my kid. How often you can feed a deer? Or lama?

"Loads of fun"

Enjoyed our time at the zoo. The animals were a lot of fun and friendly. We suggest getting 3 bags of feed to get you through the whole park comfortably. Will come again .


"AMAZING "

June 16, 2020 - 

This is our first family outing since the quarantine shutdown. We arrived at the zoo, waited in our cars, and were quickly greeted. The staff all had masks on and were very courteous and helpful. The zoo was amazing! The animals were so sweet and welcoming. We ALL LOVED IT and had the BEST time there. We will definitely be coming back again.


"Very entertaining "

June 16, 2020 - 

Really had a blast. Feeding all the animals, and able to pet them. Recommend to all my friends. Look forward to going again. Thank y'all

Great experience! The boys loved it. We bought 3 bags for 4 people and it was perfect


"We loved it. "

June 15, 2020 - 

My grandson loved that the animals stuck their heads in the window to get food.


"So much fun!"

June 15, 2020 - 

Would love to go again!


"It was a beautiful day and a fun time with my family and seeing all the animals."

June 15, 2020 - 

It was a nice activity to do on a beautiful Texas day. Worked this in with a trip to the peach stand, the beef jerky store and a good BBQ place in Driftwood. I thought it was a bit pricey, but it was definitely a good time.


"So much fun and very nice staff"

June 15, 2020 - 

Easy directions had no trouble at all with helping us out immediately and the description they had on their website of every animal was helpful! They give plenty of feed in one bag. Great place!


"Excellent Morning!!"

June 15, 2020 - 

We really enjoyed our trip through the park. Our 3 & 5 year old grandchildren had so much fun !! So did the grandparents.


"Loved it!"

June 14, 2020 - 

Enjoyed seeing the animals come up to window. Made us laugh.


"Great experience!"

"Perfect daytine activity"

June 14, 2020 - 

Very Fun and interactive. The animals were great and weren't shy about getting up and close to the vehicles.


"What a fun day!"

June 14, 2020 - 

So fun to drive along and feed the animals.


"Fun family day"

June 14, 2020 -

Great family time. Lots of animals to see. Overall a great way to spend a couple of hours.


"Incredible"

June 13, 2020 - 

This was the highlight of a family visit with a 16 mo. old boy!!! Nothing else in their 5 day stay matched the excitement of our little one's experience at the Exotic Resort Zoo.


"Great experience"

June 13, 2020 - 

Very fun for kids and adults alike!


"Fantastic"

June 13, 2020 - 

Always a great family fun place to learn about animals.


"Fun for all! "

June 13, 2020 - 

We were staying in Johnson City so this was a perfect morning outing for our family. We couldn’t believe how many animals there were, we were laughing and smiling the whole time! Highly recommend!


"Well run and lots of fun"

June 13, 2020 - 

There was a long line when we arrived at 10:15am. The staff was friendly and helpful. It took about 20 minutes to get going but then it was all really fun. The camels had us laughing with their heads sneaking into our car. Our girls loved it.


"5 "

June 13, 2020 - 

We had a lot of fun driving thru! We will come back when the guided tours are available.


"Great! "

June 12, 2020 - 

Super Fun anytime, but this was a birthday experience for my daughter. She got to invite one friend. Party on wheels!


"Great Time"

June 12, 2020 - 

Although my son is a little older, we all enjoyed the visit and the animals were great!!


"Great experience...great memories"

June 12, 2020 - 

Would highly recommend it


"We had a blast. "

June 12, 2020 - 

It was great . The kids wanted to see more zebra and camels.


"Family fun"

June 12, 2020 - 

Great family activity especially during covid if you’re trying to social distance. Lots and lots of animals came right up to window. The kids (and adults) loved it!


"5"

June 12, 2020 - 

So much fun


"Super fun!"

June 12, 2020 - 

This is our second time here, first drive through on our own. Our granddaughters loved feeding the animals from their windows. Didn’t get to see as many animals as with the guided tour, but plenty enough using our SUV. We went first thing on Friday morning, third car in, and had no problems with other cars slowing us up or rushing us. As we left, across the park there were numerous cars close together and swarmed with animals, that would have taken awhile! Saw newborn deer and emus/other birds, so cute! A great experience until we can resume the guided tour. Thanks!


"Great staff, Great Animals"

June 11, 2020 - 

The animals were fun and lively. The staff was nice and helpful.


"Best zoo ever "

June 11, 2020 - 

What an experience!!! The whole family loved it and We will be back. This is the best way to see and interact with the animals.


"Terrific visit!"

June 10, 2020 - 

I went with my two college kids and husband. Due to the large number of friendly animals we had a great time. It was worth the price and drive. I can see going back after covid to experience it in the hitched trailer. We drove thru the park due to covid but it was still a great experience!


"Great time for the whole family!"

June 10, 2020 - 

We loved being able to keep the family safe and yet have a great time! The animals were amazing!


"Great enjoyment for all the family from 13 to 78 years old"

June 10, 2020 - 

We had visited the zoo last July and enjoyed it so much we decided to go again. We were a bit hesitant when we learnt because of the COVA-19 we would be driving our own vehicles, but the experience and fun was even greater than our last visit. My wife said a smile never left her face the whole time.


"Kids Loved It"

June 10, 2020 - 

We took a 3, 8 and 13 year old to view the animals. They all loved it. The animals are very friendly and hungry, so make sure to get a bag of feed!


"An amazing wild adventure!"

June 10, 2020 - 

My family and I loved the exotic zoo. There were many different kinds of animals and we got to stop throughout the park to see them and take pictures of them.


"Loved it!"

June 9, 2020 - 

My grandson and I both thought it was awesome. Great animals and staff. Will bring our other grandchildren here too.


"An absolute joy!"

June 9, 2020 - 

My kids had a blast feeding the animals through our car windows and the site is beautiful! This time of year, there are a ton of babies - they are all so cute!


"Great Time "

June 9, 2020 - 

We took my daughter for her birthday this morning and had a great time!


"Family Fun"

June 9, 2020 - 

Probably my 10th trip out there and it never disappoints. The animals always come to feed and the staff is amazing. It never grows old.


"Good. not as much fun as usual,but under circumstances we'll be back.Want you around for a long time thanks."

June 9, 2020 - 

Fun


"Amazing Experience"

June 8, 2020 - 

This was one of the best safari experiences we've encountered! The animals are very well cared for, super friendly, and the staff was so nice. Highly recommended!


"Great1"

June 8, 2020 - 

The Exotic Resort Zoo was the best we, as a family, have attended. The animals were so friends and had great personalities. Lots of diversity within the zoo so the kids could see different animals in a short amount of time! Great experience!


"Fantastic Experience"

June 8, 2020 - 

It is great to have something to do with children and still be able to social distance. Our kids had a blast feeding the animals and seeing so many different animals. Just 1 small note, it would be good to have a sign up for each area, so we know when we are getting close to the end. It will help with figuring out how much food to give in each section. :)


"FUN!!!!"

June 8, 2020 - 

Fun trip for our kids! Animals were friendly and the kids had a blast feeding them! Thank you! Our next trip we want a cabin on the pool!!!


"Fun Times"

Had a great time celebrating my son's 10th birthday!


"Awesome "

June 6, 2020 - 

We had such a fun time! We ordered tickets online 4 days before. We arrived shortly after they opened, 9:30. Once we arrived, the check-in went fairly quickly thanks to the kind/efficient staff. Then we were off to the trail. There were many different animals we saw & able to pet. All of which, looked very well treated/taken care of. The highlights of the animals, for us, were the baby deer, camels, and buffaloes. It took us about 1.5 hrs to go through given it was a bit packed. We enjoyed the entire experience & definitely will be back!


"great experience"

June 6, 2020 - 

Kids loved it and I have to admit the adults did too.


"Very enjoyable and entertaining!"

June 6, 2020 - 

Took our granddaughter and she absolutely loved it. The animals were wonderful and the amount of food we received to feed them was perfect. We all enjoyed it!


"Wonderful Fanily Fun"

June 6, 2020 - 

Our family of four loved interacting with and feeding the animals. The animals were friendly and my kids can't wait to go back.


"Great experience feeding the animals!"

June 6, 2020 - 

We packed our teenagers into the van to visit this zoo. I thought they may not enjoy the experience since they are older but just like my husband and I, they loved it!


"amazing activity - especially in a pandemic "

June 6, 2020 - 

This is the perfect activity to do during a pandemic. Everyone stays in their car and the animals come right up to the window (often times stick their head inside your car) to be fed. Either hand feed or throw the feed out the window for no contact -- either or -- its super fun and a safe enjoyable time for all. Highly recommend!!!!!!


"Loved it!!!"

June 6, 2020 - 

We had a blast...I was intimidated at first with how friendly the animals were but once we got comfortable, we had no problem feeding the animals. The cows were our favorite to feed cause you can just drop the food right down their mouths...even the baby calf. We will definitely be coming back...maybe even get a cabin. The 2 hours we spent there flew by.


"Fun for all ages"

June 6, 2020 - 

Great Saturday morning get away. I was afraid my teenagers wouldn’t like it but they had a blast seeing/feeding all the animals and baby animals! Being up close with them was SO fun! Would do it again!


"Really enjoyed the animals!"

June 6, 2020 - 

We did the Drive through experience due to Covid-19. I really enjoyed the animals. It was so much fun feeding them and getting to be up close with them. The staff was friendly. The property were very serene and beautiful!


"The awesome zoo perfect for covid-19"

June 5, 2020 - 

Definitely get there early in the day! Recommend bringing a truck or car that you are okay getting dirty. Watch out for the hungry camels!


"It was well organized and a great experience! "

June 5, 2020 - 

I would come weekly if I could, we had a great time, some animals really let their personality show and the interaction was great fun


"We'll be back!!!!!!!!"

June 5, 2020 - 

A wonderful outing for our friends & family! It was exciting to see so many beautiful animals and to have such an up-close experience with them. Very easy drive from Austin and well worth it!


"Great day"

June 5, 2020 - 

So fun!


"Great"

June 4, 2020 - 

We love this place. We are locals and visit it quite often. The one thing that I would improve on is eliminating crumbs in the feed bags. This could be accomplished with a sifter. Half of our bags were literally nothing but crumbs.


"A wonderful experience "

June 4, 2020 - 

My 5 year old granddaughter had a wonderful experience. We gave a sunroof in the car and she threw food to the animals through it. Her favorite was the camels! A camel stuck it's head in the window and surprised her Mom. We all had a good laugh. Thank you so much.


"Great for All ages (9,12, 45, and 79 year olds)"

June 4, 2020 - 

I took my 2 children and my mother through the park during the Covid19 scare. We drove our car. It was great. We all loved feeding the animals and getting pictures. We felt relaxed and happy to be out of the house. We went about 10am and there were only a few cars, but lots of animals.


"5 Stars"

June 4, 2020 - 

Very enjoyable visit, loved seeing all the animals, especially the babies!


"Great Outing"

June 4, 2020 - 

We had so much fun feeding all the animals.


"Good"

June 3, 2020 - 

It was good but expected to see more of a variety of animals.


"Great Time at the Exotic Zoo"

June 3, 2020 - 

A great collection of animals that will keep you and Your Grandkids entertained with all their antics around your car while feeding them.


"great!"

June 3, 2020 - 

the kids loved feeding the animals and everything was easy to navigate!


"Great overall Experience"

June 3, 2020 - 

It was fun feeding the animals and getting to see them roam around. Only downsides/complaints: 1) No place to wash your hands or clean out your car at the end which is VERY much needed. 2) Some of the animals that you cant feed like the kangaroo are placed too far from the road to actually see. It would be nice if there was a way to at least be able to walk up to their cages, even from a short distance to see them


"Fun fun fun"

June 3, 2020 - 

The animals were delightful, we saw so many babies and enjoyed feeding the animals.


"Gmom"

June 2, 2020 - 

It was a great experience for my you g grandkids. It was interactive and close up and just the right amount of time. I highly recommend it.


"Had a Great Time"

June 2, 2020 - 

My fiance, and step sister and I went to this zoo today. It was very much fun and we will be going back soon!


"Wonderful experience for the whole family "

June 2, 2020 - 

What a wonderful experience, from the staff coming out to the car to sign us in, to driving through the zoo interacting with the animals. At first we were worried about the animals if they would be aggressively pushing their heads into the car, but the animals were very sweet and not grabby at all. The camels poked their heads into the car and looked around, but let everyone pet on them and we didn't want to drive away from them. They are so fun. But we did drive on keeping space between us and the car in front of us and the car behind us did the same. Already loved this zoo and this made it new and exciting.


"Excellent"

June 1, 2020 - 

Such a fun activity for a family. We loved seeing all the animals and got some priceless pictures!


"What a blast!!!"

June 1, 2020 - 

I highly recommend a trip through the zoo! Pure joy!


"We Love Your Safari"

June 1, 2020 - 

This was our second time in past few months. It makes us very happy. However we did experience a very rude group behind us. I called the number and they sent someone right away to ask them to back off and not follow so close. No problems after that. We will be back. Thank You.


"Great experience driving thru"

June 1, 2020 - 

Great experience driving through the zoo. We picked up 1 bag of feed and loved the interactions with all the animals next to our car. Wonderful photos and excitement for all the family.


"Amazing"

June 1, 2020 - 

It was such a great time with my mother and grandkids


"It was very relaxing"

June 1, 2020 - 

We enjoyed interacting with the animals. It was a nice way to spend a an hour or two. The animals are very tame and friendly


"Amazing for Kids!"

June 1, 2020 - 

I took the kids I babysit and they loved it! so worth the drive!


"Fun for all ages"

June 1, 2020 - 

Our family(2 cars full) went to celebrate my husband's birthday as a fun adventure and now we can't wait to visit again. We put both cars on speakerphone so that we can talk about the beautiful animals, funny tongues, or ways they kept coming back for food. Spend the money and purchase several bags of food to spoil all these beautiful animals and experience feeding different species. I hope they keep the drive thru option permanent.


"Great"

June 1, 2020 - 

It is a great experience!! Be ready to have wipes or something to clean your hands at the end of it since there is not a station where you can wash your hands.


"Super fun and easy"

May 31, 2020 - 

Was a great treat to see all the amazing animals. Well kept and worth the trip!


"Great drive thru experience "

May 31, 2020 - 

We had so much fun there today! Such a great place to take the kids. Highly recommend!


"Awesome "

May 31, 2020 - 

Great experience for the entire family. Animals are friendly and love to be fed. Definitely recommend this for everyone. We'll be returning to experience this again!!


"Best zoo!"

May 30, 2020 - 

1.5 hours of solid fun!!! Gentle animals and SO MANY!!!!!! Really impressed at number of different animals. ALSO BABY EMUS, BABY DEER, and BABY GOATS EVERYWHERE!!


"It was ok "

May 30, 2020 - 

I thought it was way overpriced we saw a giraffe on the flyer my little nephew was so excited that is his favorite animal but was told they did have one for many years was disappointed


"Pleasant outing with animals"

May 30, 2020 - 

There were large number of animals that were not shy sticking their heads in the car and eating out of our hands. Definitely recommend getting the sack of animal feed - this allowed our child to take a real close look at the animals. Most importantly the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a flat tyre and they went out of their way to help us and get us back on the road safely.


"Pretty Fun"

May 30, 2020 - 

I wish we could have seen some different animals but it was fun!


"So fun!"

May 30, 2020 - 

This was a great way to spend a socially-distance day. You really get to see the animals up close. It was a fun experience!


"Love this place!! "

May 29, 2020 - 

We always enjoy going there! We enjoyed self drive thru today! Tons of fun! Friendly, helpful staff!! Camels & Buffalo are our favorites...missed the cute Highland cow today though! Highly recommend!!!


"Amazing"

May 29, 2020 - 

My family and I had the best time at there! There was definitely no shortage of beautiful animals. We will be back!


"Loved it!!"

May 29, 2020 - 

We will be back! We had soooo much fun!


"Pricey but fun"

May 29, 2020 - 

We loved driving our own car through the park and feeding the animals. If they continue with the drive your own car then it needs to be priced by the car and not by the person. It's still super fun and kids love it.Recommend it for sure!


"So fun! "

May 29, 2020 - 

We had a blast! I liked that we got to drive around in our own car. We went early in the morning when there was no traffic. We were able to take our time feeding and petting all the animals! I wish we would have bought more bags of feed (at least one for each adult and kid in our car). Can’t wait to go back. I wish there was a season pass option for us since were locals. We’d go once a week if we could.


"Amazing"

May 29, 2020 - 

The three of us loved the experience, and so glad to have something like this available at this time. My son's 10th birthday is today and we chose this instead of the party we couldn't have. He said it was the best birthday ever. The camel, large deer, and zebras were highlights but all the animals were awesome.


"More than expected!"

May 29, 2020 - 

So many interesting and friendly species. Our granddaughters loved it, Be sure to buy plenty of food. Our four bags were not quite enough.


"Great!"

May 29, 2020 - 

It was very cool to do the drive thru with my family. Got some really great pics too! 😉👍🏼


"It was a great time!!"

May 29, 2020 - 

I took my 4 year old twins and we had an awesome time!! The camels were so fun!


"So much fun!"

May 29, 2020 - 

Our 2.5 year old grandson had the best time ( as did his grandparents).....we’ll be back!


"Beautiful experience"

May 29, 2020 - 

Not only did my 7&4 year old girls enjoy this, me and my husband did also..I just wish I would have had more than two bags of food. We will be back soon. Thank you for such a unique animal encounter.


"Fun family day trip"

May 28, 2020 - 

Everyone had a great time driving through the zoo and interacting with the animals. From my teenager to my toddler! That doesn't happen often so I call it a win!


"Great morning at t"

May 28, 2020 - 

Great time for the family! Cute, friendly animals!


"Absolutely fantastic"

May 28, 2020 - 

Took my 5 yo granddaughter it was our first time she was flipping out feeding all the animals


"Really Fun!"

May 28, 2020 - 

What a great time! The animals had us in stitches. Some were shy, some were very assertive. Lots of drool. Really cool experience! 10/10 would recommend to everyone I know!


"First time there and my family and I enjoyed it. "

May 28, 2020 - 

I thought it was awesome for the first time there and first time ever doing a drive thru with a personal vehicle. I would definitely be taking my family back.


"Zoo fun"

May 27, 2020 - 

Soo much fun


"Good fun"

May 27, 2020 - 

It was a nice drive through. There was a bit of wait at the entrance because of so many visitors but once inside the drive was nice and smooth with a good collection of animals to look at. My 2yr old had fun and we enjoyed as well. Will be back soon :)


"Nice place but a bit expensive"

May 26, 2020 - 

Nice place. You get to feed and interact with the animals from very close by I feel the place is expensive for the variety of animals. We have seen much more for similar money at other places.


"Very enjoyable"

May 26, 2020 - 

Loved it


"Great for kids and adults! "

May 26, 2020 - 

Thanks for the quarantine drive thru service. Was nice to get out and have a family day even in the car!


"Perfect day, perfect place "

May 26, 2020 - 

So much fun! It was a bit messy with the animals eating out of your hand but who cares!! Love it. Make sure to bring your less favored car.


"so fun"

May 26, 2020 - 

sweet animals and friendly staff


"Very fun - just be patient"

May 26, 2020 - 

Hour and a half to really get started, then an hour an a half to finish the route. Make sure you are prepared for that - but it was a blast and I will be back!


"Kids loved it! "

May 25, 2020 - 

Beware the Scottish Cows.


"Great experience "

May 25, 2020 - 

Such a great experience!


"5"

May 25, 2020 - 

Was awesome


"Wonderful fun"

May 25, 2020 - 

Loved the park. We got 5 bags of food for 4 people that was good amount. Feeding animals were so much slobbery fun. The park keeps going and going. Just when you think you have seen and feed everything, you find the camels then the bison then the adorable cows. Will do this again.


"AWESOME experience!!"

May 25, 2020 - 

Best place for family entertainment!! We enjoyed interacting with the animals and the staff was friendly. The drive through experience was the best idea during the pandemic. We will definitely return! Looking into cabins for our next trip.


"Enjoyed seeing the widlife in a fairly natural habitat for all of them"

May 25, 2020 - 

The animals appeared to be well cared for and were quite tame and friendly. It was fun feeding them. I enjoyed the okapi, bison, emus, and antelope. My wife liked the elk and ram goats.


"Terrific!"

May 25, 2020 - 

Great experience fro young and old—we came during pandemic so it was all drive though, took about 1.5-2 hours.


"Awesome"

May 25, 2020 - 

We loved it. My grandkids had a awesome time.


"What a fun experience! "

May 25, 2020 - 

My husband, 18 month old son, and me all had an amazing time! Lots of animals who were definitely not afraid to approach and were really friendly. Staff was very professional and nice. Beautiful drive from Austin. Definitely a great place to take the family, especially if you are looking for activities during Covid-19.


"So Fun!!"

May 25, 2020 - 

The kids had an amazing time and loved the variety of animals. The camels and buffalo were their favorite.


"VERY FUN!"

May 25, 2020 - 

We had a great time on the self guided tour and we enjoyed feeding the animals from the back of the car. The animals were friendly and there were enough animals to keep the kids entertained even when the cars went slow.


"Very thrilling getaway"

May 25, 2020 - 

I would definitely recommend this place. The animals are all amazing and very friendly as well as the staff. The only reason I did not give it a five is because they do not control the traffic as well as they need to. We sat in a line of 15 cars for 30 minutes because one car would not continue to drive forward and the park employees had to drive out to keep the line moving.


"Outstanding"

May 24, 2020 - 

We enjoyed getting to be in our own car and having two bags of food for the animals. The children, ages 1 & 3, fed every animal that was allowed and petted as many as they could. The animals were tame and seemed to enjoy the attention. We will plan a new trip soon. We were super impressed.


"Fun Time"

May 24, 2020 - 

A nice diversion for the kids and lots of fun. Nicely run.


"Great fun for the family"

May 24, 2020 - 

Driving through and feeding the critters was worth every penny an the 80 Mike drive


"Great time for all..."

May 24, 2020 - 

Entertaining for all ages!


"Excellent!"

May 24, 2020 - 

Loved the animals and the whole experience!


"Awesome zoo!"

May 24, 2020 - 

I've always enjoyed coming to see the animals, they are so cute and most are sweet and friendly! Unfortunately due to Covid 19, the petting zoo was shut down and we had to drive our own cars. The amount of feed was not enough to go through the whole park, so we ran out of food half way through. Another disappointment was that we didn't get to kiss the camels, they were not interested in greeting the cars. Cant wait for guided tours to resume and for the petting zoo to open, will be back for that!!


"So very much fun!"

May 24, 2020 - 

Fun for the entire family, such a treat! Would absolutely do again.


"Great "

May 24, 2020 - 

Great family fun! Just as advertised


"Awesome Experience!"

May 24, 2020 - 

We took our grandson and we all loved it!


"Super fun"

May 24, 2020 - 

Kids and adults had a blast!


"Amazing"

May 23, 2020 - 

My children had such an amazing time. But was so nice to get out of the house for a few hours and see and hear my children laughing!


"Was very fun!"

May 23, 2020 - 

Loved and enjoyed it! The grand baby’s enjoyed it as well! Unfortunately, due to the virus we were unable to stop into the gift store .


"Exceeded expectations "

May 23, 2020 - 

We had a great visit and loved seeing all of the animals who would come up to the car and eat 😁 we would love to stay in a cabin one day for a vacation


"Very pleasant "

May 23, 2020 - 

Fun and twins had sooo much excitement they fell asleep right after it was over..


"So many animals!!"

May 23, 2020 - 

Loved the exotic zoo, they has lots of deer, elks, camels, and all other kinds animals. The best part was that all the animals were out and interactive. Looking forward to renting a cabin sometime soon.


"Love it"

May 23, 2020 - 

So much fun !! Get there early !


"Awesome"

May 22, 2020 - 

Highly recommend


"Boys loved it! "

May 22, 2020 - 

Thank you!


"Great time "

May 22, 2020 - 

We enjoyed it!


"Fantastic birthday!"

May 21, 2020 - 

Because we couldn't do a traditional birthday party, we took my son and his siblings here for his 12th birthday. It was DELIGHTFUL! Even my 14 year old son, who rolls his eyes at everything, was giggling and smiling! Love driving through in our own car (I've done the truck before). Sooooo many animals who want to feed!


"Cool animals"

May 21, 2020 - 

Lots of interesting animals. Fun experience for the kids. Worthwhile.


"Back again"

May 21, 2020 - 

This was our second trip this week and loved it!


"FUN"

May 21, 2020 - 

We loved it !! The animals were awesome...exciting feeding them...just a fun time!! Worth every dollar!!


"So fun! "

May 21, 2020 - 

I took the kid I babysit and we loved it!!!! Make sure to buy a bag of feed. One is good for two! Don’t forget the animals towards the end.


"SO MUCH FUN"

May 20, 2020 - 

Haven't had that much fun in a long while. Lot's of folks ahead of us so going pretty slow and this camel kept following us and putting head into window for my wife to feed. So funny. I had buffalo slobber on my hands and shorts and no towel to wipe it off. Remember to take one with you. SO many deer and huge variety. Some like 3' tall with 3' antlers. Had an ostrich try to take my watch off. We laughed till our sides hurt at the animals with their heads in our windows begging for food.


"My whole family had fun"

May 20, 2020 - 

It’s my son’s first birthday. Since we can’t hold a bit party for him, we decided to come to the zoo. It’s definitely a wonderful Decision. My son, me and my husband, my parents, everyone had fun. My son had a great Birthday birthday


"Fun"

May 20, 2020 - 

It was fun and interesting. I recommend it, kids love it.


"Best Birthday gift ever!"

May 20, 2020 - 

We obviously are in weird times. My boyfriend got me the drive thru zoo pass for my birthday and it was the best experience and gift I've ever been given! So much so that we went back the next week, posted our experience on social media and several of our friends went. Loved every second! Shanna


"So much fun!!!!! "

May 20, 2020 - 

I have a teen and a pre teen and we all had so much fun!! We can’t wait to go back :)


"Lots of fun! "

May 20, 2020 - 

Staff was very friendly and very informative. The whole experience was a blast. My 3 kids had a great time. We will be back.


"5 stars"

May 19, 2020 - 

My husband and I had a great time!


"A total blast! "

May 19, 2020 - 

We adored our morning here! We arrived at 10am on a Tuesday and it took us about an hour to go through. The animals were so friendly and we got to see them all up (very!) close. We especially loved the camels. This is the most fun we have had in a long time! Highly recommend this to anyone. We live in San Antonio and will be back again!


"Lots of fun!"

May 19, 2020 - 

Was so much fun to see and feed the different animals and see how clever some of them are.. Just wish there were labels with pictures of which deer was which!


"We went early on a Monday there were few cars"

May 19, 2020 - 

The animals were friendly and lots of them


"Pure smiles & laughter"

May 19, 2020 - 

The animals & property are gorgeous. We had so many laughs and smiles in such a short period of time.


"Great!"

May 19, 2020 - 

We were meet by a very friendly and knowledgeable person. Sad we couldn't buy tshirts because of Covid19 to mark this first time experience with our granddaughters. Definitely something we will do in the future. Thanks for helping us to create memories with our granddaughters.


"What fun!"

May 18, 2020 - 

They are doing a great job during a difficult time. Greeting was quick and professional. The animals are lovable beggars. It was really a pleasant and fun outing. Thank you


"Great day outing with all the kids!"

May 18, 2020 - 

The kids thoroughly enjoyed the day at the drive-through zoo. They loved feeding all the animals and we got some great photos. Thanks for the hand washing station after...we need it!


"INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE "

May 18, 2020 - 

I took my mom, my daughter (5), and my son (15 mo). We had THE BEST TIME! We drove in from Austin, and I have never laughed so hard. I wish I would have bought 4 bags of feed, instead of 2. We absolutely loved it and can't wait to come back!


"Great for the whole family"

May 18, 2020 - 

We loved our trip to the Exotic Resort Zoo. This was our first time. My 3 and 5 year olds had a blast feeding the animals. We got one bag of feed and that was plenty. The animals were all very sweet and super gentle with my little guy. This was a great day trip and a pleasant break from our never ending quarantine. Thank you for a wonderful experience!


"Fantastic "

May 18, 2020 - 

We had such a great time!


"Awesome Place!"

May 18, 2020 - 

We had a great afternoon trip to the Exotic Resort Zoo! They have made wonderful adjustments to accommodate the current COVID19 situation. Highly recommend!


"Amazing family outing "

May 18, 2020 - 

My wife and I were worried about going anywhere during all the madness happening right now but were so happy with how they had prepared and adapted for visitors during this time.


"Great!"

May 17, 2020 - 

Loved it! Our kids really enjoyed it as well!


"Great place"

May 17, 2020 - 

This is a amazing zoo. You get to feed the animals and the staff is great. My kids love this place. We have been a hand full of times and will be back again


"Fabulous"

May 17, 2020 - 

This was a great day for my 3 year old grandson and the adults in the car. The zoo is great - the animals were very cooperative and came right up to the car. The food lasted the whole trip and the staff was super friendly. Highly recommend!


"Great time!"

May 17, 2020 - 

Lots of animals to feed and loved the camel and baby emmous


"Absolutely worth it!!"

May 17, 2020 - 

There was nothing we didn’t love...animals were great, drive thru was long...perfect! Kids loved it!!


"Fun and Felt Safe"

May 17, 2020 - 

We really had a great time!


"Amazing "

May 17, 2020 - 

We did the drive through at the zoo and it was great for the entire family!!! Everyone was super friendly and the animals were neat to see. Some even wanted to get in the car🤣


"Awesome!"

May 17, 2020 - 

This place is awesome. I highly recommend! Even if you don’t have kids, my husband and I loved it and geeked out the whole time! We have a 2 year old. He sat in my lap and loved it too. I can’t wait to take family there and take my son back again. Get at least 2 bags of food, I’d say get one bag per window you want animals to come to so if you have older kids in the back seat, get them a bag too. Loved it.


"The best day in 2 months"

May 17, 2020 - 

Such an awesome place to go out safely during quarantine! My kids were so happy! We spent about 2 hours there, and enjoyed every minute tremendously. The animals are super friendly and we got to feed most of species. Thank you so much for providing an opportunity to communicate with animals during these difficult times. We'll definitely return here!


"Awesome time!"

May 17, 2020 - 

Wonderful experience!! The kids had a blast!!


"Great experience, helpful staff, and friendly animals "

May 16, 2020 - 

Such a great socially distanced outting for 3 adults. Everything was clean, the animals friendly, and seemed well cared for. Great time.


"Fantastic "

May 16, 2020 - 

Took my kids through the drive through today and they loved it, feeding all the animals and getting to pet them made their day.


"The whole family loved it!"

May 16, 2020 - 

The beginning is really slow, we wish we had known to expect that, it took about an hour. Once in, the animals were very friendly and loved eating out of our hands. Be sure to purchase lots of food bags.


"Awesome experience "

May 16, 2020 - 

It was great and employees where nice and courteous. Will come back again in the future.


"Such fun!"

May 16, 2020 - 

up close & personal with tons of cute animals!


"Great fun"

May 16, 2020 - 

Staff was awesome and experience was fun for the adults and 2 year old! Can’t wait to go Again!


"Great Experience could be excellent "

May 16, 2020 - 

I feel they are really on to something with the drive-thru tours. I feels it works better than guided tours. However, I wish the line at the beginning moved faster and there were trail information such as: you are half way complete. That way people can ration their food better for the animals along the way. Overall, we had a great experience- most of the animals look very clean and well taken care of.


"We loved it "

May 15, 2020 - 

It was so fun. My kids loved it. It was the highlight of the corona season.


"Great Experience "

May 15, 2020 - 

It was super fun, the staff was super friendly and the kids loved it!!! Totally worth it!!!


"Animals! "

May 15, 2020 - 

We enjoyed seeing all the animals.


"Awesome!"

May 15, 2020 - 

We had such a great experience here for our daughter’s birthday during the quarantine. I was so pleased to see the measures the staff were taking to keep themselves & guests safe. It was so neat to be able to do something like this for our daughter since she couldn’t have a party with friends or family. And we timed it just right at opening on a Thursday morning. No wait at all, almost no one else there yet, and we felt like we could take our time and had the whole zoo to ourselves. The animals were so calm and friendly. We got to experience them all. Super cool.


"Great experience!"

May 15, 2020 - 

Worth every penny!! Helpful staff, friendly animals, lots of laughs, and wonderful memories!!


"So fun!"

May 14, 2020 - 

Our family has really enjoyed visiting the zoo! They have beautiful animals and the staff is wonderful. Thank You!


"Amazing Drive-thru experience!"

May 14, 2020 - 

We took advantage of the drive-thru experience last week and the whole family has a blast! It was a unique and fun family day and we laughed and giggled the whole time. We decided it was the most fun we have had all year, and that kind of fun is so necessary during this unsettling time in history. We will definitely be back!


"Fantastic!!"

May 14, 2020 - 

We arrived early and the drive through was fantastic! We laughed so much when the animals would stick their head in the car! It’s a great place and very reasonably priced. We will be back!


"Such a fun experience!"

May 14, 2020 - 

We come once or twice a year during normal operations to enjoy the animals. Getting to feed the animals directly from our own car was such a fun and unique experience! We laughed, we shrieked, we argued over which babies were the cutest...overall we had a fabulous time and are so glad we went. Then we came come and continued our “homeschool field trip” lesson by reading and learning about each of the animals. Thank you for this enriching experience!


"Great way to pass the time!"

May 14, 2020 - 

My kids loved it...the camel I thought might hop in and come home with us! Everything was set up perfectly, and it was easy to get in and take the tour. Thank you for making this possible for our families during this time!


"Soooo fun!"

May 14, 2020 - 

We LOVED it! Thank you!


"great"

May 13, 2020 - 

the two 9 year old boys loved it. One had been several times and the other it was a new experience. Both want to come back after the crazy is over and hopefully ride in the trailer & pulled by the tractor--maybe even stay in the cabin and swim in the pool.


"We had such a fun time!"

May 13, 2020 - 

I've lived in the Austin area for 9 years and didn't even know this wonderfully fun attraction was here! They were offering the drive-through experience only during the covid business restrictions and it was just my husband and I, and we loved it! Megan greeted us and was very friendly, happy, and informative. We bought food pellets and fed and interacted with lots of lovely animals while driving the path around the zoo. We will definitely be back to do it again. So fun!


"Awesome"

May 13, 2020 - 

We had a blast! Nothing beats feeding a camel from the comfort of my vehicle.


"Lotta fun"

May 13, 2020 - 

Nice variety of friendly animals. Love the ostrich, camel, & assortment of deer, etc. Self-driving was great.


"Hreat experience!"

May 13, 2020 - 

Lots of friendly and hungry animals! Kids and I enjoyed feeding them! Loved the camels! One got a little feisty so be attentive!


"Fun for all ages"

May 12, 2020 - 

So much fun for our whole family. Easy drive. Took us close to an hour to do the tour in our own car. We laughed a lot..the animals are very tame, and it was a blast seeing them so close and feeding them.


"Fun!"

May 12, 2020 - 

It was amazing the kids had fun feeding the animals. It was a one of a kind for me and we hope that we can come again!!!


"What a blast"

May 12, 2020 - 

Followed our kids & grandkids in another car. We could keep distance, but film each other. Came home with hilarious videos. Worth every penny.


"Overall Experience"

May 12, 2020 - 

We went this morning to celebrate our son's 6th birthday and had a wonderful time! I can see how it could become very congested during busy times and highly recommend arriving as soon as they open. We will definitely go back if this excursion continues to be offered the future!


"Excellent!"

May 11, 2020 - 

Great experience. Friendly staff


"Such sweet animals and so much fun!"

May 11, 2020 - 

I think it was my favorite Mother’s Day. The animals were so fun and sweet and we had so many laughs. My whole family enjoyed it and have wonderful memories and photos. Nice to get up close and personal with sweet animals while maintaining social distance from people!


"Always amazing"

May 11, 2020 - 

We visited this zoo regularly before they opened up driving through in your own vehicle and it continues to exceed our expectations!


"Excellent and so much fun"

May 11, 2020 - 

This is a great place to have fun with the family. Great memories made.


"Once in a lifetime experience"

May 11, 2020 - 

We got to feed and pet animals from our car that we have never been up close to ever before. It felt like the movies. There was a slight traffic hold up near the most unique animals but other than that we would recommend to anyone


"Exotic Resort Zoo is awesome! "

May 11, 2020 - 

Staff figured out a way to give us a fun day and we appreciated their effort! We also are excited to use the return pass when the quarantine rules relax.


"Great Drive-Thru Zoo Experience"

May 11, 2020 - 

We had such a great time here! We arrived right at nine and had a peaceful drive, though someone started tailing us at the end & I can see how that could be stressful. Otherwise the zoo is well-run and the animals are cute and look happy.


"Day at the Zoo"

May 11, 2020 - 

We really enjoyed the zoo! Would have given a five if cars had moved off the cattle guards which girl had instructed to begin with. Employees should have moved those cars vocally! But great granddaughter was thrilled anyway. Thanks for great day!!


"awesome"

May 11, 2020 - 

the animals were very tame and my kids had a great time


"So fun"

May 11, 2020 - 

I loved being able to interact with all of the different types of animals. It made for a fun Mother’s Day morning! Thank you!


"Excellent Time"

May 11, 2020 - 

Very well run. Lots of beautiful animals to see. Staff is extremely friendly. My kids had an incredible time.


"Great!"

May 11, 2020 -

"Great!"

May 10, 2020 - 

Went with family for mothers day and enjoyed ourselves!


"It was good but not great due to Covid 19 restrictions "

May 10, 2020 - 

It wasn’t as fun driving throuin your own vehicle versus the trailer tour


"Fantastic!"

May 10, 2020 - 

The entire family loved being up close to the animals! We would definitely visit again. What a unique experience!


"Great family experience for all ages"

May 10, 2020 - 

My parents, my son, my sister and myself had a really great time! I recommend getting a bucket of food to feed the animals!


"Great Family Time"

May 10, 2020 - 

The whole family enjoyed the up close experience. Just make sure you get a car wash after your adventure.


"Lotta deer but very fun"

May 10, 2020 - 

We had a blast on the drive through. some people crowded us and we let them pass. I think the full experience would have made me give it a five. We fed a lot of deer. The camels and zebras stayed away. I think we were ok with that though. A very nice afternoon. We went on a Friday and was busy but not horrible. Use the bathroom before you go (no pubic restroom) and bring wipes.


"Awesome!"

Awesome place!!!!!! So much fun!!!!!!!!

This was our first time at the Exotic Zoo and my boyfriend and I can’t wait to rent a cabin for a weekend getaway. Thank you for such an amazing experience


"Absolutely so much fun! "

May 9, 2020 - 

We had such a great time taking our two toddlers through the zoo!


"Great fun"

May 9, 2020 - 

Loved being able to drive thru and feed the animals.


"Awesome!"

May 9, 2020 - 

Our two kids, 10 and 6, had a wonderful time! We parents did too! We did the drive thru experience and loved all the animals. Worth the drive from Austin!!!


"So much fun!"

May 9, 2020 - 

We loved it! The animals and grounds are beautiful. Such a fun time


"Good family fun"

May 9, 2020 - 

Variety of animals and perfect for little kids. Not too long, not too short, and friendly animals.


"AMAZING!!!!"

May 9, 2020 - 

Sooooo amazing! One of the coolest experiences we’ve ever shared as a family. Go when they first open. Drive-thru zoo FTW!!


"Great family fun!"

May 9, 2020 - 

Our family had a great time there today! Thank you for providing a safe environment with lots of friendly animals to see and feed.


"Pretty good for the price"

May 9, 2020 - 

Even though it was busy and only a drive through zoo, the staff was extremely friendly and efficient. They did their best to get people through check-in and moving along on the drive. We got two small buckets of food and it lasted the whole time. Granted we conserved to make it through, but it was a generous serving. I’m sure the experience would be very different if the tours were running. All in all, we enjoyed feeding the animals and seeing the babies.


"Great escape!"

May 9, 2020 - 

My kids and I had a great time at the zoo! It was a great escape from quarantine to get out and enjoy the wildlife. I enjoyed reading about the animals on their website as we drove through.


"Fun times!"

May 8, 2020 - 

Great, interactive fun for the whole family.


"Fantastic time "

May 8, 2020 - 

We had a great time at at the drive through Safari. Interacting with the animals was great, some of them had amazing friendly personalities.


"So amazing!!"

May 8, 2020 - 

We finally made it out there, and it was just beautiful!! The people were amazing, the animals were out and everywhere. I found some new beautiful friends🥰🥰🥰 Highly recommend!!!


"Quality Family Fun"

May 8, 2020 - 

Even the teens were entertained by the self-drive through the exotic park.


"Fun outing with kids"

May 8, 2020 - 

Animals are very friendly


"Fun "

May 8, 2020 - 

Good 1.5-2 hour experience. Bring plenty of sanitizer !


"Such a perfect day trip from Austin!"

May 8, 2020 - 

This was such a blast! We have a 4 year old and 1.5 year old and they loved it! They sat in our laps the entire drive around and loved feeding the animals. There are SO many animals to see!! We got there about 930am on a Friday and it took us a little over an hour to go through, perfect amount of time. The place was wide open and very pretty. Thanks for a great trip!


"Amazing!"

May 8, 2020 - 

Exotic Resort Zoo was the absolute best! It was so much fun having the animals come right up to the car and getting to feed them. Highly recommend!!!!!


"Really fun!"

May 8, 2020 - 

Animals were really cute! It was fun to feed them.


"We had a great time with the animals. Staff also excellent. "

May 8, 2020 - 

Great place to visit with the animals. Animals also seem to be enjoying the experience. Not like any zoo we’ve visited before.


"Wonderful "

May 7, 2020 - 

My one year old loved it and so did my 8 year old niece!!! Loved every second


"A great visit"

May 7, 2020 - 

So easy to get checked in!


"Such an amazing experience "

May 7, 2020 - 

It was so cool and loved by all. Very gentle, beautiful animals on a sprawling piece of hill country beauty!


"Awesome experience!!"

May 7, 2020 - 

There are so many animals and they obviously love to interact with people. The whole family had a great time! We will definitely be back, we want to stay in one of the cabins!


"Kids loved it!"

May 7, 2020 - 

A great getaway for my grandkids. They enjoyed seeing and feeding the different wildlife. The animals were so tame. We arrived shortly after opening and the animals were hungry and ready to be fed.


"Great Time"

May 6, 2020 - 

It was a fun experience to get to feed the animals from our own vehicle! The kids loved it!


"Very Fun"

May 6, 2020 - 

The whole family was belly laughing, it was so much fun!


"Awesome experience "

May 6, 2020 - 

We had a blast! It was so much fun feeding the animals. In awe of the camels and zebra! A lot of deers tho but so cool driving thru the zoo!


"So Much Fun!!"

May 6, 2020 - 

We loved seeing and feeding all the animals. Being able to see so many different breeds and types of animals was amazing!!


"Great day out!"

May 6, 2020 - 

Well executed instructions. Nice way to get out of the house and have fun!


"Such a fun, safe Covid-19 activity."

May 5, 2020 - 

The camels and zebras and buffalos were highlights.


"Amazing"

May 5, 2020 - 

What an amazing animal experience. I had no idea how up close and personal we'd get with the animals. Our seats are covered in animal slobber and hair, bit so worth it. I so recommend it. Bring wet wipes and hand sanitizer though for when you're done :)


"Friendly animals "

May 5, 2020 - 

The animals were so cute. They’d stick their head in the car salivating at the food bucket.


"Perfect day trip "

May 5, 2020 - 

Our family loved the adventure!


"A great time we will always remember"

May 5, 2020 - 

We had a truly great experience with our three kids at the resort zoo today. The staff was prepared and kind. The whole process start to finish was great and we talked about what a great time we had the whole way back. Will return. : )


"Felt like a kid!"

May 5, 2020 - 

This place was a blast. Being a grown as man I had so much fun and felt like a kid. My wife and kid also had a blast and really enjoyed ourselves. We hope to visit again.


"Fantastic experience!"

May 5, 2020 - 

Our entire family enjoyed this field trip to the Exotic Zoo! The animals were friendly and came right up to the car and the kids really enjoyed feeding and petting them. They were also very tame. LOVED the ability to drive through the zoo!


"Fun Family Entertainment"

May 5, 2020 - 

Loved it, animals were friendly and eager to come to our car to eat. Fun experience for everyone!

May 4, 2020 - 

Good experience


"Amazing! So Fun!"

May 4, 2020 - 

Such a great time for the whole family. We will be back!


"Fun Family Time"

May 4, 2020 - 

We really enjoyed our drive through of the Exocet Resort Zoo. The check in process was simple and easy. We did not have any major hang ups while driving. People do stay a while at the camels. My kids enjoyed the experience!!


"Worth the wait"

May 4, 2020 - 

we have been there multiple times including staying overnight in their cabins. This is the first time for drive through. The only issue we had was the inconsistency when it came to getting in. We watched 8 cars that got there well after us go in while we sat and waited for an unknown reason. We were in the lane farthest from the building and watched the other lane continue to go in with no communication as to why our line was made to wait. Once through the gate into the zoo, awesome, beautiful!


"Great time "

May 4, 2020 - 

The people were great & the animals were wonderful. Definitely will recommend to other people.


"Perfect experience for right now! "

May 4, 2020 - 

This a great activity for showing your kiddos something really amazing while still keeping a distance. The staff is on point w/ taking caution for guests & animals.


"Very Fun Experience!"

May 4, 2020 - 

We thoroughly enjoyed the Exotic Resort Zoo Drive-Thru this past weekend!! Also very COVID-19 friendly for the current circumstances that we're living in!


"We had a blast. "

May 3, 2020 - 

Well run, good Covid 19 procedures in place, variety of animals, friendly staff. Thank you for providing a safe activity for my 13 year old granddaughter’s birthday.


"Amazing land and animals"

May 3, 2020 - 

1000 stars...the ostrich literally stuck it's head in the car and stole the food out of the bucket in my lap The elk was majestic and slobbered all over my leg. The zebra was funky and wanted lots of treats. The llama was just...a llama...and had attitude and still won my heart! Suggest a post visit shower area to hose off. Even a sprinkler to run through would suffice.


"Awesome!"

May 3, 2020 - 

My family and I had a great time


"Great Family Activity "

May 3, 2020 - 

We had a great time at the Zoo. The animals were very engaging, the food amount was generous, and the size of the zoo was perfect. We read reviews about long wait times so got up early and were there right at 9 and were able to straight in. It was awesome.


"Good day! "

May 3, 2020 - 

Good day out during COVID!


"Amazing experience!"

May 3, 2020 - 

Amazing experience! Drove 1.5 hrs and it was well worth it. Check in was fast, got our bucket feeds, and animals were up close and personal!! Loved it!!


"Good "

May 3, 2020 - 

It was good, the safari in Franklin tx has a few more different animals plus giraffes. This place was good also


"👍👍👍"

May 3, 2020 - 

👍👍👍


"Great time!"

May 3, 2020 - 

My kids and I loved it! Seeing all the different animals was so fun!


"Wonderfully maintained "

May 3, 2020 - 

Great experience, friendly staff and a wonderful family activity.


"Excellent value, wonderful experience"

May 3, 2020 - 

The park was well organized and well maintained. We were amazed how many varieties of animals we saw. We’ll definitely be back.


"Lots of fun!"

May 3, 2020 - 

So fun!! Well organized and easy to do!


"A Wonderful Getaway"

May 2, 2020 - 

My grandsons and I were awed by the zoo from meeting the crew at the entrance to experiencing the up close meeting of the animals and amazed with God's creation.


"So fun! "

May 2, 2020 - 

The kids loved it! Definitely a great break from Austin!


"Such a great time! "

May 2, 2020 - 

So much fun to be able to see the animals up close and feed them. Great way to get out of the house with or without quarantine and driving through made it feel safe and secure.


"Highly Recommend"

May 2, 2020 - 

We really enjoyed our visit to the zoo! Purchasing tickets and food online was very easy! The zoo was efficiently run and the line moved quickly at check in. We purchased 2 small buckets of feed (1 for driver & 1 for passenger) which got us through the entire zoo and was fun for each of us. We wore latex gloves, which I recommend bc some animals have a lot of slobber and will get it all over your hands when feeding them, and hand sanitizer for easy hand cleaning. Enjoy!!


"Fun! "

May 2, 2020 - 

So fun!! The kids loved it!!


"Good fun"

May 2, 2020 - 

Really enjoyed this. The team were very communicative and cautious about space during COVID. The animals were not... haha... and we loved feeding them and seeing them all. So friendly. What a great experience. Highly recommend and we will be back.


"Great"

May 2, 2020 - 

The drive through went relatively well, the drive does need some repairs as it becomes very narrow in some areas. There should be added fencing at the cattle guards, bring it to a V thus not allowing the animals to walk on it. Also, there needs to be shelters, trees for the animals. They need protection from the weather, from the sun. Thank you,


"SO fun!"

May 2, 2020 - 

We had a blast driving through the park. We wish we would have had one more bucket of food because we were having so much fun feeding the animals. Definitely worth a trip to Johnson City!


"Great time! "

May 2, 2020 - 

We had a great time going through the drive through zoo! It was fun feeding all the animals!


"Great experience!!"

May 1, 2020 - 

It was so much fun & the animals were very friendly. Thank you for staying open in times likes these.


"Wonderful relief"

May 1, 2020 - 

So many giggles!


"Best Birthday Experience"

May 1, 2020 - 

My daughter turned 17 today and she wanted to visit your zoo. She had an absolute blast! Her favorite animals are the highland cows and she was so excited to get to feed those. We will be back once you open back up for regular tours!


"Amazing!!!"

May 1, 2020 - 

It was wonderful and our kids loved it!


"Magical Kingdom"

May 1, 2020 - 

We absolutely loved our visit to the zoo. This place is beautiful...between the gorgeous roaming animals and the savannah-esque landscape we felt transported to another time and place. We'll definitely be back!


"Excellent experience start to finish"

May 1, 2020 - 

Our 14 month old LOVED this and the animals were all sweet, gentle, no worries at all about little accidental nibbles. I won't go to traditional zoos at all, because they are so sad for the animals, but the animals here all seem extremely happy as they are very free to roam considerable area.


"Great!!"

May 1, 2020 - 

We had so much fun! We bought 2 buckets of food and that's was perfect, although the animals are pretty greedy!!! Bring some wipes or towels as you get drooled on alot😂!


"So much fun! "

May 1, 2020 - 

We all had a great time at the Exotic Zoo. Although we had to go through in our own cars, it was still exciting for my 3 year old grandson as well as the adults! It is always so fun to feed the animals.


"Great"

May 1, 2020 - 

It was a wonderful and a great experience for the kids. They loved seeing the animals up close and be able to make new memories with each other. They provided a reasonable amount of food and a reasonably long trail. Great service was provided as well along with amazing animals.


"Sensational"

May 1, 2020 - 

Loved every part of having these friendly creatures interact with us!


"Awesome!!!"

May 1, 2020 - 

Loved it!! People were super friendly!


"Loved it!"

May 1, 2020 - 

This is fun for all ages.


"Great time"

May 1, 2020 - 

Very friendly! The small bucket of food was still a lot of food. Plenty of animals. Will definitely go back!!


"Great quarantine fun! "

May 1, 2020 - 

Animals were great and the lids had a blast!


"Good experience "

April 30, 2020 - 

Everyone enjoyed feeding the animals. Very cool.


"Awesome"

April 30, 2020 - 

super cool experience for the family


"A sweet, fun experience"

April 30, 2020 - 

Considering they had not operated as a self-drive-through previously, we thought they did a great job. The animals are sweet and love the bucket treats we bought. We have two kiddos, we got two small buckets. I would recommend at least one small bucket per child, if not one large bucket. We ran out of food before the end, so our kids were disappointed because they didn't have anything for the bison or llamas. There were not as many varied animals as we thought based on photos. And it's not the zoo's fault because people will be people, but the car in front of us (with only adults in it) stopped for up to 8 minutes in some of the animal groups, which is a long time for kids to sit and wait. On the flip side, the car behind us did not adhere to the 2-car length and was right up on us, very impatient when there was nothing we could do due to the car in front of us. We kept hoping a zoo person would drive along in an ATV and give reminders to everyone.


"Amazing!!! "

April 30, 2020 - 

We went to 4-29-2020 for my daughters birthday and she said this is the best day ever. We had so much fun and can’t wait to come back!!


"Loved it!"

April 30, 2020 - 

Our whole family of three generations enjoyed feeding and observing the exotic animals. The staff was super friendly and welcomed us back.


"Had a fine time given the circumstances"

April 30, 2020 - 

The start was very frustrating as so many animals congregate at the fence crossings and too many cars just sit there blocking everything. Much more pleasant once some staff got people to move. Perhaps there would be some way to get some of the more charismatic animals like the zebras to not just stay at the gates.


"So fun"

April 30, 2020 - 

I took grandkids and great grandkids. Was a very enjoyable experience ❤️👍🏻


"Great Experience"

April 30, 2020 - 

This was a fun outing, staff was great and despite the restrictions from the current health situation, my granddaughter had a blast!!


"Exciting, family fun!"

April 30, 2020 - 

They have worked really hard to make the changes needed for a drive thru zoo experience. Great Job! I was only told once “to speed up, there is a long line behind you”!


"Wonderful!"

April 30, 2020 - 

We had so much fun!


"Great Experience "

April 30, 2020 - 

My 2 year old loved his trip to the zoo today. Thank you for allowing us to get out and have an amazing adventure


"Great fast No contact!"

April 29, 2020 - 

It was great! Some people took forever to move along, that’s not the parks fault. I just wish the employees would remind people to be more conscious of others.


"It was awesome! My three kids had a blast. "

April 29, 2020 - 

It was awesome! The whole family had fun. Thanks


"Fun"

April 29, 2020 - 

We had such a wonderful experience


"Great"

April 29, 2020 - 

There were many deer and not enough of other exotic animals. Overall the kids enjoyed it.


"Lots of hands-on with the animals "

April 29, 2020 - 

Super fun for kids especially. Most of the animals were pretty friendly and let us pet and feed them. And the buckets of food are generous! I’d recommended!


"Loved it! Had a great time."

April 29, 2020 - 

I loved the set up of how everything flowed. Sweet animals. Enjoyed feeding them.


"So fun!"

April 29, 2020 - 

The Zoo Crew were so helpful and sweet! Driving through with our buckets of food and being able to see such beautiful, exotic wild life was something my kids won't soon forget. Thank you for such a great experience!


"Excellent "

April 29, 2020 - 

We laughed so hard with our three-year-old grandson it was his birthday today and he loved every second💙


"Fabulous "

Will be back!


"Fantastic!"

"Great for during covid-19"

April 28, 2020 - 

Did a great job with something to do during these tough times


"Great experience! "

April 28, 2020 - 

We enjoyed getting out of the house and staff was very friendly. We and the kids really enjoyed feeding the animals. Thanks! We will be back.


"Awesome experience and well priced!!"

April 28, 2020 - 

Great job with the lines seeming long the cars are moved through very efficiently and plenty of animals to see and hand feed from the car. Don’t use all the food up in the first half, there are bison and wooly cows near the end. Awesome


"Super fun"

April 28, 2020 - 

Staff was fast and friendly, loved the laid back atmosphere, most of all the amount of animals. My young kids all had such a blast.


"Fantastic"

April 28, 2020 - 

Great time for the kids, ran smooth maybe even more fun than the regular rides!


"Awesome!"

April 28, 2020 - 

We loved it! Loved the fact we could drive though in our own vehicle


"Great Time for a 5 year old"

April 27, 2020 - 

My 5 year old loved it!


"Great drive through!"

April 27, 2020 - 

We have been to this zoo a couple times before and while i miss the experience of having the guides tell us about the animals, Having the personal car drive through option was a really great outing with the kids during social distancing restrictions. Bring a towel and hand wipes to clean up all the slobber! :D


"Great way to spend the morning"

April 27, 2020 - 

Sweet and friendly animals! Go in morning before it gets hot. My 14 and 11 year old had a great time.


"Wonderful!"

April 27, 2020 - 

It was a such a joy to drive through the exotic zoo! We went early (9:07 am) and there was a very little wait. The small bucket of food is a kid's beach pail size bucket, which was larger than we imagined it would be.


"Amazing experience, toddler loved it! "

April 27, 2020 - 

We had a great time! Staff were present all throughout the park to keep things moving and make sure cars didn't get backed up. Animals were very friendly and came up the the car. Great safe activity to do with family during the quarantine. Already looking into cabin rentals for when they open again.


"Fun and interactive "

April 27, 2020 - 

Well run, animals are treated well, friendly, kids loved it


"We love this place!"

April 27, 2020 - 

The staff are always so friendly and helpful! We had four generations driving through the safari and we all enjoyed it so much. Love the animals!!!! We will be back!


"BIG FUN"

April 27, 2020 - 

loved all the animals, enjoyed the variety


"Amazing!"

April 26, 2020 - 

Our family had a fantastic time at the zoo! The staff were super friendly, the animals seemed well cared for and mellow. The camels were our favorite; we haven’t squealed and giggled with glee like that as a family...ever. We will definitely return!


"Great fun for a good deal"

April 26, 2020 - 

I know this is not the way they usually operate but we were very happy with our experience and the fact that we get to go back for an actual guided tour when they re-open for normal experiences was great. Thanks for a wonderful, much needed, day of fun.


"5"

April 26, 2020 - 

We all loved it! So glad you can find ways to stay open amid pandemic. Animals looked great!


"Nice experience "

April 26, 2020 - 

A good experience for the family while social distancing.


"Awesome experience!!"

April 26, 2020 - 

The whole family had a blast! Highly recommend this place!!


"Amazing Time"

April 26, 2020 - 

We had the best time here! Our 5 year old LOVED every minute and we did too! Too many laughs and giggles to count. Sweet, BIG animals were so fun and not shy at all. Definitely coming back!


"Awesome"

April 26, 2020 - 

Great time and worth the fun experience during COVID-19


"Great family outing"

April 25, 2020 - 

We had a blast!


"Great experience "

April 25, 2020 - 

Loved the drive thru zoo. Great safe outing during these socially distant times. Really cool animals That will come right up to the car and eat from your hand or bucket. Definitely worth the drive up from San Antonio. Looking forward to a guided tour when they are able to fully reopen!


"Excellent "

April 25, 2020 - 

Loved it!


"Five Stars "

April 25, 2020 - 

It was so fun and the kiddos loved it!


"Fell in love with a Highland Cow"

April 25, 2020 - 

We thought they did a nice job of getting to see animals in a enclosed space. The staff was friendly but not as friendly as the cow.


"This was an awesome time"

April 25, 2020 - 

We have been living through a very stressful time. What a joy it was to here the young boys howling with laughter. The adults loved every minute. We will check into getting a room.


"Beautiful animals!"

April 25, 2020 - 

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the zoo! The animals were beautiful and the drive through tour ran very smoothly!


"Very enjoyable despite the current situation"

April 25, 2020 - 

My family and I had a great time driving through the Exotic Resort Zoo. There was a lot of stop and go traffic but considering this isn't the normal operation we still had a lot of fun. We can't wait to go back for a guided tour and visit the petting zoo.


"Excellent"

April 25, 2020 - 

We loved every minute of this zoo!!! The kids felt safe in the car and we wer able to feed the animals safely!!!! Our kids 2&5 had a blast and we will definitely do this again! I never write reviews and this one was much deserved!


"Fun Day "

April 25, 2020 - 

We reserved online and came early, but there was still a slight wait to enter the park. We had to fill out a waiver that happens to be on their website, so fill out ahead of time and you'll save yourself and others time. We are a family of five (three kiddos) and purchased four small buckets of feed. We fed all the animals and had enough to last to the very end so it was perfect. Since we were early the animals were hungry so despite all the people ahead of us, we had plenty of opportunities to hand feed the animals. Friends of mine who went later in the day said they had fewer animals approach their vehicle because the animals were full. Overall the kids really enjoyed the visit. Some of the larger animals peeked their heads in the truck for food and caused lots of excitement. It took approximately two hours to complete the safari which was likely due to the high number of vehicles. Luckily we brought water and snacks, and of course wipes and hand sanitizer. I would've given a five, but I had hoped to see more of a variety of species. Overall, still a great experience and a much needed time out of the house.


"Fun"

April 25, 2020 - 

We went during the stay home stay safe time. I think they did a great job of adapting and figuring out how to still allow people to interact with the animals all while staying in their own car. One recommendation I would have is labeling the park/drive a little better so we can better ration our food. There is a map to follow, but there seems to be the same animals no matter where you were on the drive (to the unfamiliar eye..).


"Fun Experience!"

April 24, 2020 - 

We bought tickets in advance and on our way the site showed our day was sold out which made me a little nervous. But it was wonderful! Small wait at check in but staff was taking precautions and we did not have to leave our car. The animals were amazing, and many came right up to the car. Will go again after shelter in place is lifted!


"Great place for kids and adults"

April 24, 2020 - 

The animals were super cool and mostly very gentle. The zebras were gorgeous and there were so many adorable babies running around.


"Soooo fun!!! Love the Buffalo"

"Drive-thru Zoo - COVID-19 Style"

April 24, 2020 - 

The Exotic Resort Zoo did a wonderful job during our visit. The employees all took precaution with masks and distancing as best they could while serving the people not getting out of their vehicles. The were all very kind. We truly enjoyed driving thru and feeding/petting the animals. The smiles on my children's faces made it completely worth the 1.5 hour drive! We will definitely be back :)


"it was great!!!"

April 24, 2020 - 

Loved seeing ALL the people there & supporting local business!


"Family fun"

No complaints just pure family fun!

The drive they experience was great. Lots of friendly animals to eat out of your hands. Fun for everyone in the family!


"Love this place!!!"

April 24, 2020 - 

Friendly and efficient staff. The animals were so perky and practically got in our car. So much fun! We can't wait to go back


"Perfect Day Out"

April 24, 2020 - 

The kids had the best time feeding the animals. We had lots of laughs and so much joy, especially after being cooped up for 6 long weeks. We sure hope they keep this option in the future.


"Had a Blast!"

April 24, 2020 - 

Went during the Covid19 shut down to celebrate our son's 3rd birthday. Thank you so much for making it memorable! We enjoyed seeing all the animals and feeding them roght from our hands. The buffalo were the highlight! We will be back for our daughter's birthday in a couple of months!


"Great experience "

April 24, 2020 - 

Fun for ALL ages.


"So fun!"

April 24, 2020 - 

We loved it!!


"Great drive through "

April 23, 2020 - 

We went to the Exotic Zoo this morning. Very organized. Paid in advance, little contact. The animals were happy to see us haha. The kids had a ball. Nice to get out of the house during these times! Thanks!


"Best day!"

April 23, 2020 - 

We had so much fun! Everyone was super nice including the animals. Thank you for having a place like this to visit, we’ll be back soon!!


"Great "

April 23, 2020 - 

Wonderful experience for all!!!


"Such a perfect day"

April 23, 2020 - 

I took my five your old, bought one large and one small bucket of food, and then listened to him laugh hysterically for a solid hour. The animals were VERY friendly and while sometimes we were a little freaked out, that's what made it fun. The camels and ostriches were right up in our business and we loved every second. Can't wait to go back and take the rest of my kids. Great way to spend a day in the hill country.


"Loved it !!"

April 23, 2020 - 

We will be back !!


"The animals are so well cared for and have a lot of space!!"

April 23, 2020 - 

It is such a relief when I can take my children to a zoo without feeling horrible for the animals. They have a ton of space to roam but are very social! We had were able to pet the animals and feed them out of our hands consistently throughout our trip. The staff is very friendly too.


"Loved it! "

April 23, 2020 - 

We all loved it. The only thing I wish we had was a map or an idea of when we were done. We gave out all the food we had and didn’t realize it was over.


"enjoy animals "

April 23, 2020 - 

i love go see animals since my girls first time driving thur zoo is amazing experience for them.


"Outstanding "

April 22, 2020 - 

Outstanding


"Great time for the whole family"

April 22, 2020 - 

We laughed so hard at the animals antics from blocking the roadway to get food to slobbering on us. We had a great time. The length of the tour was perfect. Only downside was the inability to wash hands after the tour due to covid19.


"Fantastic Experience!"

April 22, 2020 - 

Loved the up close encounters with the animals! Great check in process too!


"Amazing time!"

April 22, 2020 - 

There were so many laughs and smiles shared throughout this experience. I recommend this to anyone!


"Beautiful day, fun laughing at the animals.. great place to visit and take your mind off the problems around us"

April 22, 2020 - 

I can’t wait to go back and inner act with the animals!!


"Amazing Experience "

April 22, 2020 - 

We never would have though going to the Exotic Resort Zoo would be this fun!! So many friendly animals that come right up to your car for a snack! My two sons were thrilled with the experience.


"Had a great time with the kids!"

April 22, 2020 - 

I have nothing but the most amazing feeling about the park itself and the staff, it was all lovely! They did such a great job keeping everyone safe and organized. I do wish there was some kind of mindfulness of other cars driving through (while we're driving through on our own at this time) to not spend a ton of time stopped feeding animals when there is a very long line of cars hoping to enjoy the experience, too.


"Awesome Experience!!!"

April 21, 2020 - 

We did the drive-thru this morning! Had the best time...the kids (ages 3, 4, 6, & 7) absolutely loved it!!! Lots of laughs & giggles! I think we liked this even better than the guided tours. Of course, now I need a good car cleaning...animal food everywhere, but sooooo worth it! Thanks for an awesome field trip!!!


"So much fun"

April 21, 2020 - 

We had a blast, the animals were friendly and so were the staff. We saw a pretty big snake there also.


"Fun time"

April 21, 2020 - 

More deer than expected


"Loved it! "

April 21, 2020 - 

We had so much fun! I felt like a kid again! I forgot a out everything going on in the world and enjoyed myself! My daughter was a bit afraid of the animals but she loved it! I’d give 10 stars ⭐️ if I could! Can’t wait to come back!


"fun time"

April 21, 2020 - 

I guess you don't normally do the self drive thru. Very creative on your part to keep the good times rolling. Just my wife and I today. We look forward to coming back with a group, once life returns to 'normal' Be Safe. Terry


"Fun Experience!"

April 21, 2020 - 

We had a great time on our self guided tour! We were surprised at how friendly the animals were, so many came right up to us to eat from our hands. A few of the larger animals stuck their heads right in the car through the window!


"So much fun! "

April 21, 2020 - 

Wonderful experience for all ages! The animals were friendly and fun to feed, can’t wait to go back again!


"Great way to spend a couple hours"

April 20, 2020 - 

FYI Covid timing Drive through. The wait to check in and get food was about 30 minutes and staff was moving as fast as they could. When we left, the line had to have been close to 1.5 hours long and a mile down the highway just to get in!! The animals were so fun and we loved interacting with them from our car. There were plenty of opportunities to feed the animals. The only irritation was that there was no control over how fast the cars were moving through and the car in front of us was spending allot of time feeding each and every animal in the park. There was no way for us to pass him and the cars behind us started honking. That didn’t make for a very pleasant trip for us. If they could figure out how to monitor this better, they would be able to get people in and out and give each person a better opportunity to interact with the animals instead of the car in front of them. Overall, it was a good time.


"Kids loved it"

April 20, 2020 - 

This was worth every penny. We went on Monday around 10am and had 4 buckets, it was perfect. It was exciting to feed the animals interact with them. Kids wanted to stop at the gift shop and were sad to remember that social distancing and Covid-19 are still happening. Thanks for a great escape, even if it was just for a bit.


"Great experience "

April 20, 2020 - 

Great experience


"Kids loved it! Wanted to go back next day!"

April 19, 2020 - 

We all had fun driving thru in own car, kids want to stay in the cabins and go back all the times. Def worth the drive!


"Amazing! "

April 19, 2020 - 

We had so much fun! My 4 year old son thought it was so cool, he was sad when it was over. All of the animals were friendly and the weather was perfect!


"Amazing!!"

April 18, 2020 - 

What an amazing experience for my family. The Zoo did an amazing job making sure everyone was safe and the animals are so well cared for. I am grateful the zoo remained open during this time so our family could go out and safely enjoy something during this lockdown. My only personal criticism is seeing an employee smoking in a company open jeep while out with the animals. Otherwise we had an amazing time and feel so happy knowing we are just 45 minutes away from such a wonderful place. We will be back for sure!


"Perfect local getaway during these times..."

April 17, 2020 - 

We have 5 and 7 year old boys and had the best experience at Exotic Resort Zoo. The animals were up close and personal and gave us all a fun morning, out of the house, but still safe with social distancing. I do recommend bringing handi wipes as your hands get pretty gooped up. It's important to support the local businesses so that once we get through this, we have these amazing places to visit.


"Grrrret!"

April 15, 2020 - 

Even though we couldn’t enjoy the Full extent of the zoo due COVID-19, the Drive through Safari was fun.


"Amazing!!!"

April 15, 2020 - 

We loved everything. Loved being able to go at our own pace.


"An amazing experience "

April 13, 2020 - 

We were amazed at the variety of animals. There are lots of different types of dear, but also camels, zebras, emu, kangaroo.... the list goes in. Spring is fun because of all of the new babies. Feeding the animals was a blast! Get a large bucket, they are hungry!!!


"Great!"

April 13, 2020 - 

What an awesome way to get out and do something with the family! We have been cooped up for weeks with the Coronavirus scare, so this was a great social distancing outing with our kids :)


"Great"

April 13, 2020 - 

Can't wait to come back post-Corona virus and have the full experience!


"A great outdoor experience"

April 13, 2020 - 

I visited while everything was shut down for the quarantine, so I was only able to do the driving tour, but it was an excellent hands-on outdoor experience. Perfect for children and young adults. Animals are engaging and curious and come right up to the car to be fed. Well maintained facility with a wide variety of hooved wildlife.


"Great experience "

April 12, 2020 - 

We loved the zoo. We had a blast. We will go back.


"Great place!"

April 12, 2020 -

We love the zoo and the thousands of beautiful animals. It’s a fantastic organization!


"Great Time!"

April 10, 2020 - 

This was a very cool experience! We did the "Drive Through" experience and it was totally worth it and so interactive. Highly recommend


"Wonderful day!"

April 10, 2020 - 

Thank you for being open and allowing people to drive through to be able to feed the animals. Although it was super crowded, we had one of the best days ever! We are looking forward to coming back soon.


"Amazing! "

April 9, 2020 - 

We had a blast!!!!


"Safe fun during the pandemic! "

April 7, 2020 - 

We went in the cold rain and it was still so fun! The animals are very interactive, it was a beautiful drive and we felt it was safe social distancing!


"AMAZING!"

April 6, 2020 - 

Making the best of social distancing with a drive thru experience. It was more personal than being on a trailer ride with lots of other people. Animals were sticking their heads inside the vehicle and getting very up close and personal. This made for great pictures of the kids some in awe and some panicking. Be ready for a little drool but a lot of fun!


"Awesome "

March 25, 2020 - 

Loved it ! Animals were amazing

March 10, 2020 -

"Absolutely incredible experience!"

January 19, 2020 - 

So many new animals, and exciting up close and personal experiences (us in a caged trailer) with some of the most beautiful animals. All of the animals were friendly and looking for some food and love. Go in the AM when they open. Private felt tour with an incredible guide. Family owned property that should be protected for generations of people (and animals to enjoy). Thank you so much for the beautiful experience. Please support this amazing cause.


"More fun than a barrel of monkeys!"

December 21, 2019 - 

We came on a cold, overcast and misty day, yet it was a thrill a minute as we toured the park with our granddaughters. Don't miss having your camera ready for the kissing camel and its intended target!


"SUCH FUN!"

October 14, 2019 - 

This was one of the best days ever! I had my daughter and 4 grandkids with me and we all 6 absolutely loved the entire day. Feeding camels and zebras - petting baby goats - what could be better! And Hailey was a great tour guide. This is one thing you just should not miss!
