Because I had a fun time and everyone was very nice
Awesome tour guide, awesome location. The animals all seemed well taken care of and loved :). I got to hold the baby monkey which is all I ever wanted to do:). Had an amazing experience definitely will recommend to all my friends when they visit Miami !
this experience was more than I expected. it was a great time with a group of friends.
Very very nice experience, all ages will enjoy this place, real animal contact priceless , I really hope many people can try this magical experience, I definitely will go again to have another wonderful encounter with another animal,
This was our second visit and it is an experience of a lifetime. The tour is incredible, very hands on and informative. Is a little expensive, however, the funds go to care for the wonderful animals you see throughout the tour. The staff is great and always deliver a memorable tour. I would highly recommend spending the extra money for one of the animal encounters. You won't regret it. We have done the bengal tiger cub a couple of years ago and the white lion cub this time. Money well spent for the experience of a lifetime.
This was by far the beat experience that I’ve had. I love how you are in a small group so you are able to see and hear everything. Also, it’s great that you get to learn so much. Being able to interact with the animals is a huge plus and was a great time! Thank you!
We love ZWF ! The grounds and enclosures are very well kept, the animals are clearly happy and interactive, and the tour guide was top notch !! We visited two years ago and really enjoyed getting to carry Oliver around (on a turtle pillow ) during the tour. This year we fell in love with Oliver yet again. My husband has had some health issues so smiles have been hard to come by lately. He has been giddy since our experience at your facility. Thank you !!!
Beautiful location and great cause. A must do!
Great experience! Tour guide was awesome. 1 hour tour ended up being two hours with much more animal interaction than anticipated. Will be back! Thanks again!
An amazing facility and super staff. Interactions with animals were really something special and a unique experience. Would definitely visit again.
The guide was so nice and patient. She also had so much knowledge to share. We all had a really wonderful time.
It was an awesome experience and the stuff as very nice too.
It would have been nicer to spend more time with the cub. I also did not appreciate whilst waiting for Uber this guy asked one of the ladies why we were still there in front of us which I found offensive since we travelled from UK to come here for the experience and the icing of the cake was when the boy in the cabbie to told us whether we wanted a ride to the gate before our cab got there in the heat. It actually ruined the whole morning for us. Apart from that the lady who showed us around was lovely.
The tour was very informative and well worth the money! I’d do it again!
Went for my niece's bday and it was amazing!!!! Once in a lifetime experience
This was an amazing experience - lots of information and some hands on contact with some of the animals.
Loved how they brought out a few different monkeys at the end to play with. Was my favorite part!
Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. We had a nice overall experience. We loved our sloth encounter as well.
Very knowledgeable guide, gorgeous animals, loved the fact we got to hold a monkey and also love what how the foundation looks after it’s animals
Friendly staff, awesome animals
Amazing experience. Very cool. A little pricey but overall amazing.
Such a unique experience. Truly recommend it for any animal lovers its a must experience! Such fun for all ages.
Lovely experience for ALL ages 17, 45, 75. I (75) thought it was going to be lame - BOY, was I wrong. Great interaction with staff and critters!!! Thank you, will come again and bring friends. A little bit far from Boca Raton but well worth the trip.
I had a great time overall! It was a lovely tour. I was kind of disappointed that most of the lions, tigers, panthers, etc were mostly in their individual cages because they had just had lunch. Didn't get to see them more up close like other animals.
Great tour, great feedn the animals. Didnt expect to be given the chance to interact with monkeys & hold the other animals. Was a great experience. Thank you
Nos gustó mucho todo. Gracias
The site was beyond beautiful, all of the animals looked very well cared for, very clean, & our tour guide was awesome, knew what she was talking about and was very polite and patient!
