The tour here is totally superficial and extremely rushed. Don't expect to have more than a glimpse of the birds. plus most of the animals live here forever so they are making money instead of really understanding nature. They explained hurted animals would be prey out there, which is true but natural. They are supposed to get caught and die... More

If you are stucked in Puerto Iguazu for three days (because to see both sides of the waterfalls two days are enough) this is a good alternative to see. Entrance is 85 pesos which maybe sounds a lot for backpackers, but if you think that you help rescued animals, doesn't sound that much anymore.

It was my first visit to Iguazu so I was excited to see local wild life. It is a rescue centre so do not expect zoo like experience. It was organized well with choice of tours in English and Spanish. The park is not big but tour takes around 1,5 hrs as the guides explains a lot about the wild... More

Very interesting. Unfortunately they did not have an English speaking tour guide the time that we were there so we missed alot of what the guide was describing, but it was still wonderful to see all the animals in their almost "natural" surroundings.

Just completed the 1.5 hour guided tour in English. Our guide, Carmen, was fantastic in the way she explained in-depth why each animal or bird was there. Some had been confiscated from illegal hunters, some had been brought up as domesticated pets and could not survive in the wild and some had been injured by humans or vehicles. We saw... More

This is not a zoo, it's a rescue mission. That is clearly stated on the sign at the entrance. Nice people, well informed, tours in Spanish and English. You are paying to support the rescue center. All animals were former pets or injured in the wild and brought in. The only problem we had was the 3 legged Coati that... More

I decided to do the little city tour in Puerto Iguazu and was brought to Guira Oga. I only had a slight idea of what this place actually was until I stepped foot inside. I had the greatest tour guide for the experience (If only I could remember his name) he knew everything and answered every single question and also... More

The place is a kind of sanctuary where all sorts of animals are treated for all sorts of problems. It is cheap and you will see more animals than on the safari that costs 4 times as much for less time. The animals are in cages, however, to protect them but the aim is to put them back in their...

We have visited other places like this but the other was better. Here the animals have little space, someone repeats the same motion and path obsessively. The ticket is not so cheap and our kid 11 years old payd the some price of an adult.

Really interesting. You learn so much about the local wildlife. Do this for sure. A truck ride out to the boardwalk and animal recuperation areas and you do a slow walk back.
