  • Our ATV tour by Around Aruba started here. They gave each of us a baggie of carrots/feed. We were given 10 minutes to feed the animals and use the restrooms before starting out on our ATVs.  more »
  • Good place to visit while in Aruba if you are traveling with kids. There are several sorts of animals to interact with (feed).  more »
  • We were here as part of our Aruba Adventure tour. It's nice but I would not make a special trip to see it.  more »

  • The place is nice. You can get here by car. Roads are good. Cover is cash only and last time I was there it was $10. It is fun to be able to feed the animals and they seem to be very well taken care of. Please remember to wear sunscreen. It could get really hot. If you are renting a car the Alto Vista Chapel is down the road about 10 minutes away. You can actually see it from here near the monkey cages. You could easily kill one or one-and-a-half hours here.
  • Wonderful hands-on experience. Animals follow you alongside the fence hoping for a treat. Monkeys are adorable! You are allowed to feed all farm animals, including llamas and camels. Please bring some animal squicky toys for the monkeys (environmentally safe, no small parts), monkeys that are in "single" cages are lonely and bored, they would enjoy animal and kid toys too. Monkeys tried to grab my phone, hat and clothes, they have nothing to play with. The nibble on cage. Also bring apples and carrots with you to feed animals, they give you a tiny pack of food at the entrance, ok to feed small animals, but carrot sticks are too tiny to feed camels and big horses. Bring whole apples and carrots for them. May be other food too (ask at the kiosk)
  • I love this place and have busted it on several vacations. A great small animal rescue zoo which is fun for adults and children.
  • Philip's Animal Garden Is An Extremely Fun Place To Go. There Are Many Animals From All Over The Island, Including The Endangered Aruban Rattlesnake, Which Is Only Found On The Island Of Aruba. You Can Also Feed Most Of The Animals, Well, All Of The Animals That Have Four Legs, Which Probably Makes Up One Third Of Philip's Animal Garden. It Also Has A Play Structure For Children To Play On. I Recommend That If You Like Nature Or Wildlife, You Should Definitely Come Here.
  • Just went here today as part of the Safari excursion - Freddy was our guide and did an awesome job! It was great to see the monkey's up close and the roaming peacocks spread their feathers. The safari tour was great - Freddy took our family to the caves and to the place where the tiny fish will nibble on your feet. Highly recommended to first timers to Aruba.
