  • I visited the zoo early in the 2021 season. Lots of work was being carried out to improve enclosures. Yes, some are in need of repair and they are being attended to. The owners really care for...

  • The staff who were there, which is very little from what we could see, were really friendly. Can’t take that away. The animals were fun to see and very cute. But it pained me to see such dirt and smelly cages, and pretty much a run down place. Looked almost abandoned. The lions looked extremely thin and the play structures looked old and dirty. I didn’t want my daughter playing on them. The bathrooms were clean. It needs a lot of work and money. It has potential but all I could think of leaving was that sad flamingo in a dirty kiddie pool that sounded like he was crying. I just wanted to give him or her a hug…
  • I wish I could provide a million more stars for this Zoo. I prefer animals to be in the wild but the way our world is nowadays this isn't always possible, it is our obligation to provide animals the safest place to live and the Papanack Zoo is exceptional at making this happen. It is evident that the animals are so well taken care of, great facility for them and the animals look incredibly content. I took the time to learn about these animals, they are not purchased on the black market, as some people believe. Most of the animals are in fact rescue animals. The owner has taken so much time to educate herself on all the different specifies at her Zoo. I highly recommend this facility and suggest to anyone that is against having animals in a zoo setting to reach out to the owner and allow her the opportunity to explain the story on each animal, they all have one!
