GENTRY Ask anyone in the region about Gentry, and the one
thing they're likely to know is that the Safari is here - and for good
reason, because the Wild Wilderness Safari draws hundreds and
thousands of visitors to Gentry each week.
And the reason for the Safari's success becomes quite obvious af
ter each visit. Though privately owned and operated by the Wilmoth
family, the animal park continues to grow and improve each year.
The petting zoo has many baby animals for children to see up
close, touch and even hold. And it's not every day that a child or
adult can pet a lion cub, hold a baby Kinkajou or see and touch
baby monkeys and baboons. How often can a child touch a kan
garoo and see up-close the joey peeking out from inside its moth
One might not expect it, but it's easy to spend hours rather than
minutes driving through the acres of wildlife and seeing animals
right outside the car windows. In fact, being in a hurry probably
won't work because there is simply too much to see.
It's no surprise that the Safari is one thing people almost always
remember about Gentry. It's an impressive place to visit - a place
not quickly forgotten and a place that has something new and in
teresting to see and do on each new visit.
