My father, husband, and 2 1/2 yr old ALL had a wonderful time on this tour! Judy was our guide and such a pleasure. She was sure to make it educational and entertaining. As we walked upstairs in the giraffe barn I was amazed to see 5 giraffes looking at us and eating from our hands. SO much better than... More

had a really interesting and fun tour of the B Bryan Preserve - our tour guide Judy was personable, patient and really informative. We had time at each animal enclosure, sometimes with no fence or barrier between us and the animals, and we could get out of the Jeep to get a closer look. The giraffe feeding was the highlight,...

Glad to hear other visitors had such a wonderful time at their tour. We had the husband for our tour guide and he was rude and condescending. After being with him a short time and having him make us feel like we were just tag-alongs while he made his rounds at feeding time I was trying to ask good questions... More

The Preserve was this year's location for our annual sister reunion, and what an excellent choice. We WILL return. The Chapel Cottage is beautifully appointed and was perfect for the 3 of us. The work that our hosts, Judy and Frank, are doing is overwhelmingly incredible and quite informative. What a wonderful contribution they are making on this planet!

We highly recommend spending two nights and really experiencing these amazing African hoof stock animals and the dedication of the owners.

This was my second visit and I will return again....and again! All the animals are amazing from the orphaned baby zebra to the tall giraffe. You are able to get up close and pet the giraffe or feed them a snack. The zebra are beautiful. Such a great cause and fun way to support this wonderful Preserve.

If you want to go to an exciting place, where your money will be well spent and for a great cause, then this is the place. The people who own and run this place take so much pride in their animals. The animals are visibly happy and could not be taken care of any better. There is NO guilt feeling... More

I thought this was a bit pricey but the reviews were so good we gave it a try. It was definitely worth it. I brought a group of teens here and we all loved it. It is so different from a zoo or even many wildlife parks. The animals are close, there is lots of each kind, and guide was... More

Going on an African safari on the Coast! Our sons had the best time feeding the animals especially "Mayzie", one of the five male giraffes at the preserve. The zebra, antelope and giraffes were especially active during feeding time. We also enjoyed Stornetta Public Lands and Bowling Bowl Beach - breathtaking! This is a "must-do"!

We stayed here for two nights recently in the cottage house. Its a cosy little place with two bedrooms and a full kitchen and living room with a garage. Our family loved it. The highlight was the safari tour where our son got to feed a giraffe. I did not realize the sheer number of zebras, Antelops, Giraffes and other... More
