The donkey sanctuary is not the only place to see donkey's! Take a drive around the island and you will find donkeys, and goats running wild. How ever if you want to see them up close, this is the place to do it.

We took a day-tour of the Donkey Sanctuary from our cruise ship (HAL - Noordam) and spent about 80 minutes feeding and interviewing the donkeys. The Sanctuary takes in injured donkeys and maintains about 500 donkeys overall. Most of the donkeys had good manners, but a little pushing started when we reached the bottom of the carrot barrel. Lots of... More

This is a great outdoor activity for all ages. The sanctuary now holds about 500 donkeys of all age and you get the opportunity to do your own little 'safari drive' through the area and feed the donkeys with carrots you buy at the shop. They love it, and you will have fun too! The nursery takes care all the... More

This was so fun. It was such a nice break from the diving and snorkeling. We spent about 2 hours here we laughed and laughed it was great. It is a non-profit and I love that they are caring for these abandoned and orphaned animals. When you go in you will immediately be surrounded by the donkeys who are looking... More

We went to the donkey sanctuary today after we spent the morning at jibe city in lac bay. Absolutely one of the most satisfying experiences I have ever had watching these wonderful friendly creatures come over to me for attention. At first I thought it was for food but I quickly realized, no, they want me to pet them and... More

We came to dive, but during a surface interval decided to take a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary, and it was well worth it! The donkeys are friendly and every-hungry for carrots. The drive through the park is easy and you'll make plenty of 4-legged friends along the way. The nursery area allows you to walk in and interact with... More

On an island known for its original laborers, the donkeys, there is a sanctuary that is home to well over 400 donkeys. Roaming free, they are fed, cared for, and given a life time home, free of danger from motorists who present the biggest threat to them. This past month we visited the sanctuary for the second time. We brought... More

This is a facility to rehab and protect the donkeys. $7 per person to enter there is a gift shop and picnic area. By a bunch of carrots when you enter to feed the donkeys. They are friendly and only mildly rude when looking for food and attention. It;s for a good cause and it;s something to do when not... More
