What You Will Do

- Hourlong standard tour of wildlife facilities
- Hands-on interaction with select wildlife
- Bug spray and hand sanitizer
- Children 2 years of age and under get free admission
Please note that the animals available for interaction vary based on their health and character at the time of the encounter. Our animal friends can sometimes be moody too! Thank you for your understanding.
Children under the age of 2 are free. Please be sure to wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Guests may not wear jewelry for the safety of the animals. Animal interactions vary based on health of the animal, and interactions may vary at any time. Bring water and your camera. Hands-on animal interactions are not recommended for children under 8 years of age. The rest of the tour is fun for all ages.

It was amazing! I will visit again for sure. Carolina was the best tour guide ever! Thank you!
Amazing experience, well worth the price. The General Experience alone was worth the visit. We also did the Sloth Experience, which was also very fun.
We had an amazing experience! Gabby our guide was fantastic. We came from New Jersey for this experience that we will never forget!!
Une fabuleuse aventure. Nous ne pensions pas voir autant d'animaux de si près. Nous avons été conquit par cette fondation. La soigneuse qui nous a fait visité les lieux était très gentil. Les animaux sont bien traités. Certes le prix est assez élevé mais ça en vaut vraiment. Nous recommandons ce lieux.
Max our guid was awesome. The animals all seemed very healthy and happy.
Truely a unique experience! We had such an amazing time hand feeding the animals, and getting the opportunity to get a bit closer than normal to the animals. Love that the groups are kept small so that you get more individualized attention. We also added on the tiger cub encounter. Sara was beautiful! Such a once in lifetime experience. Would highly recommend this experience to all my friends and family!
The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The animals were amazing we had a great time. We will be back
It's an unforgettable experience, I highly recommend it

An incredible experience for visitors of all ages. I'm not sure who was more excited... our 2 and 4 year olds, or their parents?!
Super sweet staff great experience!!
I thought the pricing was hi! I had a personal encounter with a white lion cub McCarthys wildlife sanctuary in West Palm Beach, and it was only $100 for 1/2 hour!
Everything was amazing!
Because it was a very nice experience to be able to give animals food to know about their life their history and above all we had a very special guide called Anabel
Jacob was a great guide through the entire facility. He was kinda and knowledgeable. It was a very fun experience I would definitely do it again.
You can tell the workers love the animals, worth every penny
We had the best time..such knowledgeable tour guides and a sanctuary that is so careful with their animals..a must see
This location is more intimate and private than your average zoo.
Excellent way of seeing and interacting with wildlife.
An experience you can’t get anywhere else! This was an amazing tour
The people are very informative
The guide was fantastic....you could tell she has a real love for the animals and a passion for what she does. She was very patient
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The Anika’s were speactacular and the place was very clean.
Seriously the most amazing experience!!
Always love our visits to ZWF! We will continue to visit when we are in Miami. One suggestion, this is obviously a very family friendly facility but if you were to offer tours that were 16+, even at an additional cost, I would happily pay for it. It's great if you have nice, respectful kids on the tour but when you end up with those that are less than respectful it puts a damper on the whole experience for everyone, especially during the hands on portion of the tour.
