Fun Around Town: Hollywild Animal Park (Wellford, SC)


 Our family visiting Hollywild Animal Park

Recently our family made a trip across town to visit Hollywild Animal Park in Wellford, South Carolina.  We already had a couple events earlier that day on that side of town so we just drove a little further and spent the afternoon having fun at Hollywild Animal Park.  It was a beautiful day and it was great seeing as well as interacting with the animals.

Even though our girls are twins they have very different interests, however, they both share a interest in anything pertaining to animals.  They love animals so this trip was a lot of fun for them.  All the animals seemed very active which was fascinating to watch that day too.  You could tell they were enjoying the Spring sunshine.  The newborn baby animals were very adorable!

The only problem we had is between my husband and I we took a lot of pictures so it was hard to narrow down some of our favorites.  We consolidated, but will probably highlight Hollywild in a couple posts in order to give you a full view our trip to this fun place.

If you live in the Greenville area you should check out this Hollywild Animal Park if you haven’t already especially if you have kids who enjoy being around animals.  There a good variety of animals and you have opportunities for more interaction with the animals as well.  It’s a great family event to do together.  Not to mention it is educational for the kids.

After spending an afternoon at Hollywild the girls first comments were – “Wow, that was a lot of fun!”  and  “I wished we lived closer so we could go more often!”  The kids give it a big thumbs up!

Here are some of the pictures from the animals we met while at Hollywild Animal Park:


 The Canadian Geese were very friendly.  This one decided to pose for me.


 Brina talking with the bird.  She loves all creatures!


 Karlie found a rock to perch upon.


 On the run….Karlie doesn’t want to get left behind!


Jake and his girls by the pond.  Right behind them in the water you could see all kinds of turtles (including Red Eared Sliders like we have at home) and fish swimming around.


 Beautiful cluster of ducks, the girls tried to get them to say AFLAC (guess that’s one commercial they remember, ha).


Karlie had to stop and pet the pony!


Having fun with my girls!


This little donkey was hoping we had some yummy treats still to share.


Brina soaking it all in.  She wanted to make sure we didn’t miss any of the animals!


This Baboon was talking up a storm.


 He really wanted something on the outside of the cage.  We watched as he grabbed a stick to try and bring the item closer to him so he could grab it with his hand.  He was very determined to get it!


 Brina petting the pigs.


 Beautiful iris flowers that caught my attention when I turned to walk to the next animal exhibit.  Makes me think of my Grandma and Jake’s Grandpa.


Someone’s got a tasty treat and digging in!  It was fascinating to watch him eat.


Looks like a sharp set of teeth in its mouth!


Intently watching the other one eat.


 Pretty bear!


 This one is getting a little closer!


 Brina loved petting this super soft dog named Andorra!


Andorra was enjoying a good petting and laid down so Brina could continue!


Up on his rock jungle gym.  The girls think we need to build a climbing rock structure for our goats too.  I have a feeling the goats wouldn’t be the only ones climbing around on it though.


A little one….so cute watching him run after his Mom on long wobbly legs.


The camel watching us approach!

The camels were featured in the following:

  • Christmas Play – Evangel Cathedral
  • Myrle Beach Christmas Production – Dixie Stampede
  • Living Christmas Tree – Jerry Fallwell Ministries


More content watching the kids.


This picture makes me smile…


Beautiful  Leopard Appaloosa was featured in the following:

  • Movie – The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking
  • Many live appearances and promotional events


So pretty! I think it is hoping for a treat!


We had a great time at Hollywild Animal Park!
