There is a short video about the organisation with subtitles in English. Whilst our guide delivered the tour in Spanish he had good English and was prepared to translate anything. The tour is about 1 hour and a half. Most animals are there having been rescued from trafficking. Its mostly birds but there are some mammals. Its 100 pesos and... More

There are Tours in English, but they didn't give us that info until we were in the middle of a Spanish tour and the guide was extremely rude about telling us this and how "maybe you'll think about asking next time". It sounded like we mostly missed the history of how they got the animals. There were some neat birds,... More

Excellent way to see some local flora and fauna as you see very little wildlife at Iguazu Falls since it is so heavily traversed. Plus you feel that your admission is going to support rehabilitating animals that have been injured. You ride in a large wagon pulled by a tractor for about 1km into the forest. There are only a...

Our visit to Guira Oga was one part of a packaged city tour the day following our visit to Iguazu. We were fortunate to arrive just in time to join a group tour that would be conducted in both English and Spanish. If traveling on your own, visit the website so you can time your visit. English tours are offered... More

The price charged was 85 pesos for a 90 minute experience in a guided tour of the animals they care for. There are set tour times and as the next English tour was about 4 hours away, we took the next one in Spanish. The Spanish guide had a pretty good command of English so once she realized we didn't...

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
