Where are we going today?

There are over 260 animals waiting to make friends with you at The Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo, so what are you waiting for!

The world of animals comes to Mississippi, so you don't have to even leave the state to be meeting yaks from Central Asia, or Kangaroos from Down Under!

There are so many amazing animals at The Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo, it's a great learning experience for the kids to not only learn about the animals themselves, but about nature, and of course - conservation.

Kids - have you ever seen a bison up close? If you look at them in herds, you might just be transported back to the Wild West across those great plains! There are HUGE water buffalo, and those unusual yaks waiting to say hi!

The zoo has those scaly creatures we KNOW you love, including pythons and lizards, and even the more unusual - but just as playful - capuchin!

If you love monkeys, you are in luck because you can meet a host of different species including the tamarin, marmoset, and howler. If you love those impressive majestic animals, those tigers and giraffes are right there too.

You might even come across some animals you've never heard of before - coati anyone?

For those little ones who love some hands-on fun, there is a petting zoo that has a host of different domestic animals that you can feed and pet, from the donkey, to pot bellied pigs and sheep.  

Did you know that you can jump on the Monster Bison Bus and be driven right to those incredible animals, from the camel, zebras, and of course the bison? There is also an Open-Air Trolley with a great tour guide to teach you some more fun facts, and pony rides or guided trail rides for those kids under 60lbs.

Phew! We told you there was animal fun to be had, but did you think there would be THAT much at The Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo?

We better get going then!

    I came to the park after viewing their website thinking wow I am in for a treat. I drove 120 miles round trip to get there. Wow what a disappointment. I came over the 4th of July holidays,expecting a lot of people but there were about 5 cars in the parking lot, that should have told me something. I went on a open "trolley" ride, mind you this was a ride with a "TOUR" guide. He was a young kid with as much personality as a wet paper bag. As he was trying to give us facts about the animals and park he spoke so soft and with a " I dont want to be here"...Read More

As he was trying to give us facts about the animals and park he spoke so soft and with a " I dont want to be here" attitude that I couldnt understand most of the things he was saying. Other than the lady checking us in, this was the only other staff member I was in contact with and to think I paid $3 for the ride. There were a total of three staff member I saw and upon leaving I didnt even get a "thank you" or "have a nice day", nothing.All in all the animals were the highlight of the park and it was only $10 a person. I guess you get what you pay for.(ha) Next time I want animal interaction I will pay the extra $5 and go to a real zoo when I know I will get my monies worth.
