Mississippi

Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo

The buffalo is another American classic that still evokes pride and admiration, and at the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo, these majestic animals roam in the largest herd east of the Mississippi River - a herd of more than 100 buffalo spread out over the 200 acres of the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo. Visitors hop the monster Bison Bus or an open-air trolley to move among these mighty creatures as they graze—a special highlight is the sighting of Tukota, one of only three white buffalos in the country. After roaming the range, bus and trolley, pull into the specially created pens where visitors can safely hand-feed the buffalo with corn and grain. (With the largest bull in the Park weighing in at more than 3,000 pounds, these American beauties are handled with care—and so are Park guests!) That kind of interaction is the hallmark of the Buffalo Park and Zoo, which is also home to a growing array of exotic animals, including a zebra, lion, tiger, bear, reptiles and what started as a pair of giraffes but now has become an entire family. Even older kids are charmed by the Park’s petting zoo where pygmy goats, miniature horses, sheep and even a miniature cow nuzzle up to visitors. Families and other large groups also enjoy sleepovers in the Park’s “Indian Village,” where visitors can stay overnight among the sounds of the wild and also enjoy trail rides and cookouts.
