  • This place was amazing! It was hotter then Texas that day and I loved every minute of it! The guides are awesome and know so much about the animals and have great relationships with them. They work so hard at keeping the animals in a great atmosphere still wild and natural. I wish I could stay and just hang out with them.
  • What an amazing experience. This is by far one of if not THE best excursions I've taken while cruising. Steve, Mario and Mario's daughter were fantastic. They are information and use humor to keep things lively. They should be nominated for a humanitarian award for all that they do for education and the environment. This is a long review so in the words of Steve. "Hey Mario, they are losing interest so it's time to move along"
  • Just wow! This place is worth every penny and minute of your time. Steve and Rihanna made our tour so special. This is NOT a zoo. This is just a unique and amazing experience. If you love animals and want to get off the beaten path DO THIS. Also if you can get Zimba as your bus driver you will have the most interesting and informative bus ride!
  • Steve and friends care so much for their animals and educate their audience as we walked around. Be prepared to get bitten but dont wear bug spray as you will be supplied with natural repellent before entering
  • I felt this was using animals for entertainment purposes. Do moose let people kiss them in the wild? I found the experience disturbing. I would not have gone on this excursion if I had known. Also, I saw many guests having trouble walking the paths. I would avoid it if you have trouble walking on uneven surfaces or if seeing animals used as circus performers is not your cup of tea.
