  • Beautiful animal park. It has a good variety of animals of which many are allowed to be fed with small snacks by visitors. If you are here on vacation with small kids this one is defenitely a winner. There's no small shop for beverages or snacks though so make sure you bring your own. After paying at the entrance you're pretty much on your own especially on not so busy days, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It feels a bit awkward in the beginning but soon after you realize the place is all yours! It's no Bush Gardens but my kids always have a good time there!
  • I had fun here. We got to feed a kangaroo and a camel. Supposed to be a rescue sancuatary. Just not sure if that is true. You will have to go to make up your own mind.
  • I literally just had the best time! I spent two hours getting a fully guided tour from the most passionate fifteen year old I have ever met. He knew everything about the animals and you can tell he loves what he does, and will continue to fight and rehabilitate these animals. The animals were happy and doing well. Those who aren’t well are there because they are sick and need help, which they are getting. There were born this morning baby piglets and a baby deer. The peacocks had little babies running around with them as well. The ocelots were playing. The monkeys were rowdy, and one loved getting his belly rubbed. I even hand fed the kangaroo. Thank you for this wonderful experience!
  • A lovely experience! Very clean, well maintained grounds, lots of shade. The animals look clearly well cared for. My kids loved being able to feed the animals. A must do especially if you have young children.
  • Way more animals than I expected, the place is huge. Goats are hilarious to feed. Animal habitats are pretty large. Ten bucks gets entry and a bag of carrots and kibble. Views were great, lots of cacti and a bit of the sea. Easy to find, only about 100m of dirt road to parking lot. Be aware you aren't at the beach anymore and you might see one or two yellowjackets.
