5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

This was one of the best adventure we have had on our vacation. The animals are in their natural habitat and the train set- up in the front of the park was awesome. We had a new experience feeding giraffes.

Very interesting, enjoyable walk through. It's much larger than expected, and a lot of various animals throughout the entire desert.

We loved seeing all the animals in their desert habitat! The display of cacti was incredible. Our grandchildren really enjoyed this experience - so glad they had a petting zoo to allow them some in-touch time.
