Interactive, interresting and the guide was very cool
I visited ZWF in February 2018 and had a great experience. This past weekend, I brought my son and his family. Disappointed as the group was too big. There were like 15 - 20 people in our group. It made our experience less enjoyable. Also, since the group was huge, they would not bring the monkeys to be held because the large group would scare them. My granddaughters were disappointed as I told them they would be holding monkeys and that is why we brought them.
well, I find out to be quiete costly, the tour was great, the girl was very pleasant and knoledgable, however after the 5 mint spend with the white lion cub was quiete disappointing. that girl was somewhat rude.. I asked her if we could take one photo with my grand daughter, she refused. the cub had enough. I understand the part of enough encounter per cub! However she should not take us, the cub should have been remove and switch, I mentioned to her, I am all about the animal been comfortable and not over stress by visitors, I came with my grand daughter, paid the fee ask to spend 5 mint. and take pix. So she need social grace class to know how to handle her duty and dealing with people. take in consideration that we are here to take with us one awesome memory, a photo... So therefore I am not sure I will bring my other grand children. Have a great day. Lauren Chabaud
GREAT time and staff is very knowledgable. So fun!
We had a great time . Our guide was so helpful and informative. We will be booking another visit soon. I think with the cubs. My grandchildren have been talking None stop about it. Thank you
We were very much delighted during our visit. Emily was a great tour guide and always had a smile on her face. My youngest daughter is going to be studying animal science this coming fall at UConn and Emily answered her questions and provided some advice. I would definitely visit the ZWF again.
The staff was very informative and friendly and the animals were amazing! The encounter with the lion cubs as well as the other animals was a dream come true, thank you for the wonderful experience.
The staff was so awesome. I feel like we are friends now. I have to come back and see the cubs when they grow up
The experience to interact with the animals is really great. The location is very nice, even though the animlas are cages there isnplenty of vegetation for them to feel ag home and protect them from the sun. I loved how the tour guide did not rush through the experience giving everyone enough time for pictures and feeding the animals. I do think that admission should be more strict, there was a small child who was out of control yelling and throwing rocks to all the animals - the animlas would grab the rocks thinking it was food - also that same group of people had a stroller which was in the way all the time and hitting people as they walked with it - the guide never told them anything and that to me was not right - it was not fair for the rest of the tour takers and most especially not fair to the animlas. Apart from these annoying guests the experience was amazing.
What a great up close and intimate experience. And the Chimpanzee encounter was the icing on top! We truly made lifetime memories.
Best zoo ever!!!!
Our tour guide made our experience worth the money and time spent here. She was very through and knowledgeable we will be back
Emily was fantastic! Will definitely go back again
Most amazing experience I have ever had in my life. I've always had a strong love for animals and also always wished to interact with them. I'm so happy that my dream came true. Thank you.
The guides were fabulous! Very helpful and answered all questions. I called a few times to ask questions prior to visiting and to assist in directions and everyone was so helpful and friendly! Thank you for making this trip exceptional!!
Really cool guide!
A pesar de la lluvia y de la hora que tuvimos que esperar fue una de las experiencias más hermosas de mi vida. Las chicas que nos atendieron fueron excelentes. El cuidado de los animales es impresionante. Sin lugar a dudas, volveré a conocer a Limbani. ❤
My friends and I loved it, our tour guide was great,
The reason why I choose this rating is for 2 main reasons. First one is due to the staff giving me a private tour for me arriving late! Instead of canceling or rescheduling amazing staff! The second one is due to not only meeting my favorite animal which is a lion but them fulfilling my wish the day of my birthday by me having a personal interaction with a lion cub!
Loved the interaction with the animals and learn their different talents. Richie the monkey claps to ask for food.
We loved ZWF! The best part is getting to touch and hold some animals at the end. We also did the Lion Cub encounter and it was an experience we will remember forever. Five Stars! The only area for improvement would be the bug spray. Per the website and confirmation emails- bug spray was going to be provided. Upon arrival, the bug spray was gone and the guide didn’t have anymore available to offer us. Lesson learned: bring your own.
Far more intimate than any zoo with wonderful and attentive, informative staff. A very personal experience.
Beat guide ever!
My Tour Guide Jacob was very good. I learned a lot of little facts. The animals were well kept and fun to watch and learn about. Thank you for a wonderful day!
We reviewed you on trip advisor with 5 stars. Thanks!!!
Our guide Yudy was awesome!!!!
Great, personalized experience. My son enjoyed learning about the animals and the encounters.
Our guide was amazing. Super personable, knowledgeable and very kind. The best part besides seeing these wild animals is also learning about their behaviors.
A beautiful oasis with a wonderful and friendly staff. It’s nice to see good people taking care of such majestic animals. We look forward to coming to visit again soon in the future! We hope to be able to adopt one someday! Thank you - Michael and Monica from New York
From every staff member from the beginning of our tour all the way until the end was a phenomenal experience. I was able to do 2 private encounters which will always be s great memory. I look forward to coming back and experiencing other encounters.
