  • We spent an interesting two hours walking the trail and looking at the exhibits. Excellent displays of native birds, animals, reptiles and flora. The lady keeper at the first peccary and bird exhibit was very helpful and told us the stories about the animals she cared for. We also also liked the cacti and succulent greenhouse.Nice gift shop. A good outing for $5 per person

  • This is an interesting wildlife park. Well kept trails and nice exhibits considering you are out in the middle of the desert. Staff were very friendly. Prices are fair. Plenty of parking. It's worth the stop if you are passing through.

  • Easy to walk through and reasonable cost. Love that the animals there are ones that needed rescuing and are not able to live in the wild so they have a safe haven. Some neat info inside the visitor's center. Gift shop has some cool things and the manager is really nice and friendly.

  • Fabulous place! Active animals, great displays indoors, gardens are lovely with excellent views! Extremely reasonable entry fee! Definitely stop.

  • It's a really nice trail. I went by the a couple of days back but it was kinda late so I didn't go down the trail. But this time I went during the afternoon the sun was out and it was hot but wanted to experience that. Was there for about an hour or so. It's so quiet and not a lot of people around. Most definitely will be coming back while I'm down here working.
