meet our animals

Here are just a few of the many animal species you will encounter on your visit to WWA.

Daniel Boone’s last home in Kentucky was here in Nicholas County where Wendt’s Wildlife is today. Boone and his son built the log cabin in 1795 where they, along with Boone’s wife & family lived until they left for Missouri in 1799.

 

The cabin has undergone much restoration in the last few years due to the efforts of Nicholas County Tourism. It is their desire to preserve the history and legacy of Daniel Boone here in Nicholas County, and for people to visit and learn about Boone for many years to come. The cabin site is FREE to visit. Donations are greatly appreciated.

on the grounds

While visiting the animals is our main attraction, there's lots more to do when you visit WWA!  We have a variety of picnic tables scattered around the grounds that you are welcome to use as you like, as well as a great playground with swings, big slides, and a huge sand box where the kids can expend some energy.  Brushy Creek runs through the property, and since we are all about having fun in nature, you are welcome (at your own risk) to get into the creek and splash around, hunt for crawdads, water snakes and other critters, or just cool off. 

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

gift shop & snacks

There is something for everyone at the Gift Shop here at WWA. Toys, puzzles, and a large selection of stuffed Zoo animals to USA hand-crafted mugs, metal art, jewelry and Wendt’s Wildlife Adventure souvenirs.

 

We offer cold drinks, coffee, tea and snacks such as ice cream, slushies, chips, jerky and candy, and greatly appreciate any purchases you make here since all of the proceeds go towards taking the best care of our animals and the wildlife park. But we do also allow outside food to be brought in.
