We did the self guided walking tour and we saw so many of the animals. It was a great place to visit and it was wonderful to see the animals have so much space to live. It was a great day!

Went there to shoot the goats and sheep, and was told it's good for birding. It is. I had loads of fun and spent almost the entire day there.

I live in the Yukon. I've seen most of these animals in the bush. Still, the preserve is gorgeous and a lot of fun. Being able to safely see the animals up close is a blast. The staff as so friendly and informative, and they work hard to make sure the animals are happy and healthy. This is a must... More

The indigenous animals are all happily grazing and on view in their natural habitat. It is safe to drive and walk between the different enclosures. A wonderfully run attraction.

This isn't your regular zoo. You get to see the animals up close and personal here. If you've never seen the animal of the north, then this is the perfect place to see all of them at the same time. I'd recommend tying this with other nearby activities, such as the takihi hot spring and maybe camping or a hike.... More

The animals were well taken care of. They were easy to view. It is always nice to see wild animals in a preserve being taken care of so well. I would visit again.

I decided to go visit the preserve as a nice way to spend the afternoon. I loved visiting the area and seeing the unique animals of the region in quiet and gentle areas. The views were lovely over the hills and the variety of animals available to view was fantastic. A great experience for any animal lover.

Got a good up close look at the animals and good information about them from the guide. The tour was about 2 hours long and the guide was very flexible in the time we spent looking at all the wildlife.

Well worth the extra to pay $65pp for the private tour. Jake was very informative, and it was fabulous to go behind the scenes & check out the Rehab facilities, and see what fab facilities they have there to help injured animals. This is the time of year for injured birds....Bald eagles, Golden Eagle, Snowy Owl, Raven, Peregrine falcon... And... More

It is a great location and it is very impressive to have a see at those wild animals. Our guide was very informative and nice. I like the fact that they help the animals by rescuing them when needed.
