It's a great place to visit with kids to have a close encounter with the animals. My 3yr and 5yr old loved it. Feeding the animal the carrots they just did not want to stop. The guide was very friendly and helpful . There is also a waterfall in the park so one must take swimwear and towels . It's... More

Nothing like getting salivated by zebras and giraffes who want your carrots! This is quite a nice property, and the animals look well taken care of. If reproduction rates are a sign of animal welfare, these little creatures must be quite happy

$65 US (deluxe option) for a ride on a '80s Land Rover through a African themed zoo, including a small brown a drink and a bag of carrots to feed the animals, $1 each extra bag-go right inside the fence and pet some animals from your open vehicle. There are other options available: to walk through the park and see... More

I am going to start with what I loved: Touching the giraffe! Since we never ever have a giraffe around this made up the whole trip. I paid the “Safari Tour” and having more access to these beautiful animals was the main advantage. The price was significantly higher than the other 2 choices and they need to create a better...

Went on a lark, and it was great. They have a collection of mainly African animals, no predators, that you can get close to, feed and touch. Knowledgeable tour guides, we had a private tour as we were the only ones there....took the $15/person version and went into one enclosure to feed the giraffes-you put a carrot in your mouth,...

This private park located just outside from Liberia is an option for those travelling with small kids. While it has Animals from other Destinations, honestly everyone loves Giraffes. The Animals have a lot of space and look well kept. Price is a bit high.

Absolutely fantastic tour! In general, animals seemed very happy roaming the vast grounds. Very interested in visiting with the tourists. We happened to go at just the right time so we received our very own private guide and tour bus. Jose was fantastic, answered any questions we had (even if not about the tour) and took us anywhere we wanted... More

We found the animals were well cared for and very interesting to see. You were able to fee them carrots, which was fun. I would suggest you take the walking tour, as the bus tour was expensive and you didn't see anything more then walking.

Before going to the zoo, we read all the reviews and, in our opinion, the best and most helpful was an April 2008 review titled “African Safari in Costa Rica” by CRhockey. Read it, we share the same point of view. On our last afternoon in CR my wife and I took our youngest daughter to Africa Mia. As our... More
