#2 of 33 in Parks in Bonaire
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.

  • I went to Bonaire to see the flamingos, but fell in love with the donkeys. Wonderful people taking care of the sweet, and sometimes naughty donkeys.Thank you so much for a great time.
  • What a great cause and what a lovely people. Keep up the good work!
  • A home to relocated wild donkeys on the island. Many can be seen roaming the island wild, left by the Spanish using slaves to harvest the salt from the canals. Visit the the salt pier for sure!
