Sierra Safari Zoo Reviews & Ratings
Awesome little zoo. The volunteers are very loving towards the animals. the community is very empathetic and giving toward the zoo. The volunteers know a lot about the animals behavior and personality. Talk to them! The petting (and feeding) area is a real treat. Can't do that at a big commercial zoo. I've been coming here since 2006, with my kids and for field trips. Great place to learn about biodiversity, habitat, etc. I highly recommend.
Checked out Boo at the Zoo! Staff was very polite and helpful. It was a chilly day, so luckily I wore a ninja turtle onesie. Saw some lions, tigers, and some other cool animals. Overall, a fun place to take a trip with the family.
Really cool place and really close to home. Great for a spur of the moment activity with the kids. They kids loved it. It's small, so it's easy for kids to walk and see all the animals without getting too tired. It was pretty hot when we went, but a lot of the path was shaded. I was going to bring the stroller, but I'm glad I didn't. It would have been too difficult to maneuver on the dirt paths.The petting zoo was cool, but don't let your little children in by themselves with the bucket of food. Those deer aren't shy! And pretty strong. And definitely avoid open toe shoes. Unfortunately, my youngest had an allergic reaction and we had to cut our visit short. Overall though, we all had a good time.
North of Reno. The zoo is very cute. It's small but fun. You can feed the deer. Also the White alpaca let me pet it.
We enjoyed this zoo. The staff is very caring and dedicated to the animals. There is a good variety of animals for a small zoo. Great/worthy place to volunteer or donate.
