All in all they have over 150 animals, which are all kept in a natural environment.
Many of these animals can't be found at our local zoo (which is pretty awesome in it's own right!)
While on your safari tour in your wagon you are welcome to take pictures, feed and even pet any of the animals as the moment arises.
The safari is on 50 acres of land with Oak Trees, lush Palms and more!
They also have a Petting Zoo and a Gift Shop!
When you have a chance, gather up the family and go check it out. They are located at 805 Hooper Road, Pineville, LA.
