This is a pretty good place to take your family if you like neat and some even rare animals. This zoo has everyhting from the normal lion and monkeys to a zebra/donkey mix, called a "Zonkey," and wallaby/kangaroo mixes, called "Wallaroos". They also have a lot of different birds, but they allow them to run free in the park. They also have a huge cage with a bunch of deer which if you are quiet and not too forward will actually let you pet them. But my favorite was the small white snow fox. They also have a lot of African Savannah animals such and antelope and impalas. There is also a huge bison reserve. This zoo is good but it could use some work on the some of the animals and their cages.

this zoo is a neat place to go! we have gone two times while vacationing before moving to Myrtle Beach. We have not gone back as the last time the conditions did seem a bit worse. But my kids did enjoy it. the best part of this zoo is the nature trail! so calming and beautiful!

PROS: kids love it
CONS: not the cleanest

I'm so emotionally torn with regards to Waccatee. I mean, their animals are in awful conditions and cages that are too small and not climate controlled. The gorilla sits in a cage with a broken recliner and fuzzy black and white television. The other monkeys are sequestered and solitary and quite unhappy looking. They can't even play on the ground, just in wire cages. THey're given crappy three-wheeled Tonka Toys to play with. The Lion has a peeing problem and sprays on anyone who goes near the cage.

These things make my heart heavy.

But you can feed nearly all of the animals straight from your hand and they just follow you around and they have miniature cows with fuzzy tongues and little horses and peacocks that make weird noises and roosters on the loose and a camel that's quite personable.

These things make my heart light.

So it's up to you. If you can put aside the animal cruelty and lack of proper environments, then you can go here and have a great old time. If you're a member of PETA, or the humane society, you may want to stay away, lest your hair fall out from the atrocities you will see. Seriously. It's THAT bad.

This zoo has been in the area for many years. It is very clean and the animals are very well taken care of. The have all the trees around the area, so it stays pretty cool even on a hot day! You can take a pininic lunch in as well, That is a real plus when take kids there. You can get around with kids with a stroller a wagon. They even have a petting area with the goats. There are antique cars too!

You need to go if you want to go to a really neat looking zoo!! The prices are not bad either for zoo. I can handle to take a family of five there!

PROS: Awesome!
CONS: None!
