  • Honestly one of the greatest things you'll ever do. $80 for admission where you have interactions with little baby monkeys and owls and baby alligator as well as viewing countless animals. And then $120 for a once in a lifetime interaction with a baby tiger cub or lion cub. Unbeatable.
  • My wife and I absolutely LOVED our visit to the Zoological Wildlife Foundation and our hands on encounter with a tiger cub. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and you can tell they truly care about the welfare of the animals. A staff member used our iPhone to take pics and video of us, very much appreciated. Thank you for the one of a kind memories!
  • I came here with my young family. We had a great time. Looked after very well. The baby monkeys are the best thing by far. Crawling around you with there little nappies on and sat on your head and shoulders. Would definitely recommend. Taxi fare is expensive to out here so if you can snag a ride out with uber for cheap, that would be a good idea. Probably about 60% cheaper i found out AFTER. So definitely look into that. Anyways, everyone was happy and the kids loved their experience
  • I heard about this foundation through a friend, so I decided to try it on my birthday. My brother and I did the Special Wildlife Encounter and it was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide, Andrea, was fantastic. I would totally recommend her. We got to touch/hold/feed 15+ different animals. If you are an animal lover, you definitely need to visit.
  • Took my sister for her birthday last weekend and had the most amazing time. The staff was wonderful and knowledgeable and of course the animals were amazing. Oliver the monkey was my favorite!
