Would definitely recommend this place as somewhere to visit. There's a nice nursery section where you can go and and walk around next to the donkeys and some will follow you. The drive round is ace, make sure you buy at least a couple of bags of carrots as you'll have plenty of heads poking in.

Do not go without purchasing several bags of carrots. and I guarantee that if you do, you will end up laughing so hard that you'll have tears in your eyes.

While saving the donkeys is a serious matter, their adorable antics won our hearts on our trip! The passion of the volunteers is obvious, make sure to stop and meet the babies!!

we took a bag of apples and purchased 2 bags of carrots on entry - they were gone before we made it past the first group of donkeys - we were ambushed! I never realised donkeys were quite so clever - one will stand in front of your car to stop it whilst the overs crown round either side and... More

I am an animal lover and enjoy seeing what island have in regards to attitudes and beliefs surrounding their environment. This sanctuary is like most in regards to the love and dedication that is being shown to the animals. The way the Sanctuary is being funded is like all of these types of things, but they are certainly making due... More

This place is just great. They have a special area for the babies up front, and it is absolutely adorable. There are lots of mommas and babies there and a couple of bottle fed donkeys (mother unable/unwilling to support) that are marked with a red bandana around their necks. In particular there is a little fluff ball named Robin there... More

This was an enjoyable hour and a bit. We learned about the donkeys from the helpful workers in the pen area. Then drove through the sanctuary where we were mobbed by donkeys! What a hoot. We have some great pictures with at least 4 donkeys heads through the truck window at the same time each looking for a hand out.... More

Spent an hour or so visiting this wonderful sanctuary. Make sure you buy or bring a bag of carrots to make some new friends. Your visit is certainly for a good cause and will make you feel good afterwards.

I know - it sounds hokey, but the Donkey Sanctuary is a true gem. The donkeys are friendly and the little ones just want to be loved and petted. Bring some donkey snacks with you! Plenty of apples, or carrots, whatever. Where else can you go and have a donkey stick its head in your car window. We love this... More
