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.

Our tour guide was great!
This is the closest and most intimate interaction I have had with any wild animals. The experience was amazing and our guide Gabby was very informative, knowledgeable and very pleasant. I like that it is by appointment and think that money was well spent for the General Tour. I am highly recommending this to everyone I know and I will be back again with my kids. I know they will love it!
this is my 3rd time here! i recommend everyone coming here! however - it's only actually worth it when there are the specials (bogo 50%, free encounter with purchase, etc) because it is QUITE expensive - i've taken friends and family, love it
Our guide was so knowledgeable, fun, and had patience with our entire group.
Informative, friendly staff, great tour guides and awesome animals
The experience was outstanding. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great Valentine’s Day gift experience for my girlfriend. She totally loved it! I honestly don’t know what else to write, but thank you!
Our tour guide Jason was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better person.
The staff was great and I loved the baby jaguar
It was the right program for a six year old girl we were taking with us, in terms of scope and length. She adored the experience, especially the final encounter part. One suggestion: have a place you can buy beverages at.
I believe Emily was our guide for the tour and for the separate Encounter with a baby Jaguar Amy . Was wonderful and informative Thanks to our Guide Emily
We had such an amazing day touring the facility and then playing with the baby jaguar and lion. Thank you so much to the staff for making this so much fun and something we will remember always!!
We had an excellent time. The staff was friendly and cared for the animals tremendously. Highly recommended!
Everything went great- the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, we got up close and personal with the animals as expected, our only wish was that we could do more! We'll definitely suggest this to others.
Tour guide knowledgeable. Enjoyed small size tour group. Most fun the end with the interactive play !
The staff were very knowledgeable in the animals, they were very friendly and showed the visitors that they were there to make the animals as comfortable as possible and it showed on the animals.
The tour guide was very informative. It was great to see the animals so close. Best was playing with Limbani. An experience I will never forget.
Our tour guide was great! She was very funny and informative and the animals looked well taken care of.
Experiencia linda de conocer a los animales, y a los bebes. Interesante ver que son rescatados en su mayoriia
Great tour and knowledgeable tour guide. Wonderful experience with animals unlike any other - being able to play/hold the animals was amazing. Also, happy to go during a time when there was a slight discount...it's pricey.
I had an awesome time with my kids, 6, 9, and 17 years old. The staff was very informative and willing to take their time to show every animal on the property. The kids were able to interact with almost all the different types of monkey species and other wild life (creatures) such as baby otters, owls and hedgehogs to name a few. I decided to pay additional for the baby leopard encounter and it was well worth it. I will definitely go again.
Everyone was professional. You can tell the animals are loved and cared for. Our experience was amazing thanks to our guide Stephanie who was very knowledgeable and her relationship with the primates enhanced my daughter’s experience to the max. Thank you so much for this beautiful experience.
Great tour, great enthusiasm. Very friendly staff. Worth the money.
Excellent guides and a great time all around!
Everyone was very helpful and well informed. The tour was small, making it easy for everyone to get a good view of the animals and enjoy the facility to the fullest.
One of the best experiences you will ever have!
Loved the smaller tour groups by appointment only and the fact that the animals were mostly rescues and had a great home there. I wish the larger cats/lions had bigger homes/spaces but they all appeared happy and well taken care of! I don't typically go to zoos where animals are in "cages" and look unhappy and this place was definitely not like that, so I recommend going and help supporting their cause! If I lived there I would sign up to volunteer - loved it!
The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. I enjoyed that the group was small and everyone got a chance to look at the animals and not feel rushed. My niece (8 yrs old) and I really enjoyed the animal encounters at the end of the tour. It allows for a more unique experience.
It was an absolutely amazing experience! I will definitely go back!
Our guide was great. The animals were wonderful and very engaged. It is great to be around people who love animals as much as we do. Amazing to hold wild baby animal!
