  • This was a wonderful place to visit. The animals really seemed to enjoy the human interaction. It was great that they gave you a bag of snacks to feed the animals. It was a great place to visit! Loved the Nigerian pygmy goats.
  • Lovely experience interacting up close with animals one would not expect to see in Aruba- especially camels. $10 entry fee comes with a bag of carrots and pellets to feed some of the animals, who are cared for through sponsorship and donation. Some of the animals seem to be oddly placed, such as a sheep in an enclosure full of goats where it gets bullied by the goats when people are feeding them. The staff at the gate were friendly.
  • I would recommend this place to animal lovers. I was surprised to read that some people saw hurt animals here, as I didn’t see any. I agree the rabbits water bowl was rather dirty, but I saw an employee walking around refilling water while I was there as well. This was my favorite part of going to Aruba because I love animals, and they said 40% of the cost of the excursion goes to support the sanctuary. I was told that the animals have come from other zoos that shut down or were rescued. I loved the ostriches. You get a bag of food to walk around with and feed the animals. I would return every year!
  • The animals appear to be well looked after. I would have preferred more signs, explanations and descriptions. This place has the potential to be a nice place to visit but it's not there yet.
  • Nice range of animals available. The orangutan in the back is very cute. Watch out for small biting insects that bite you around the shins if you're not wearing pants
