  • The place is more than half an hour from the city, the truck that made us extremely dirty. The place itself does not have much appeal, the animals were allegedly rescued in different circumstances and the truth is that it becomes even depressing.

  • I really nice place to stop on the way into the sacred Valley. Got to see some amazing animals which was really cool.
  • Loved this place! One of the few places to see animals up close - condors, pumas, baby black bears... Plus it's free! (donations welcomed).
  • Excellent, well-run, friendly sanctuary for rescued animals just outside Cusco. Top attractions include Puma, Andean Condor, Llama, Alpaca, Guanaco, Vicuña, Toucans, and much more! 60% of all gift store purchases go directly toward the help of the existing and future rescued animals - the store has excellent selection of clothes and gifts by the way. A must visit for any animal lover in Cusco. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience.
  • You should stop to visit this zoo on the way to the Sacred Valley :)
  • doing good job by helping animals
