Visit Donkey Sanctuary Bonaire and meet its charming residents. Founded in 1939 by a Dutch couple, the sanctuary provides refuge and care for sick or orphaned donkeys in Bonaire. Take a drive through the large park where the donkeys are free to roam--you can pet them and feed them carrots on the drive. Visit the special care meadow, where pregnant, injured, and baby donkeys are kept, learn about the efforts of the sanctuary, and support the donkeys by buying souvenirs from the gift shop. After the tour, you can admire tortoises and iguanas in the garden, or relax with a refreshing drink on the terrace, which overlooks a salt lake.

    You can a round of drive on a dirt road by car through the park. What are smart asses beasts. Go for your car so that you have to stop and walk to your window to a root to "ask". Pay attention here that you don't start giving away all your roots. The are many donkeys and if you have a round ride with the car the last never win a root ... Good that there is a shelter on Bonaire. The "hugging" of donkeys is not listed here. Yet you pretty happy of a visit. Buy a few bags roots and the party is complete. For your and for the donkeys! Too bad there's no coffee is, fortunately there is lemonade to drink on the lovely covered terrace. Sturdy shoes are preferred above slippers when you get out of the car. Donkeys surround you when you enter and leave you free again if everything on. It may happen that a donkey accidentally on your foot.
