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!

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

What a treat! We stayed two nights in the cottage where there is two beds, a kitchen, bathroom, and a TV, for a low price. Be sure to visit Stornetta Public Lands and Bowling Bowl Beach - beautiful! Kissing a giraffe and petting a baby zebra for a good cause is just heartwarming!

As strange as it may seem, yes, there are African mammals living in Point Arena. The caretakers are caring for wild zebras, antelope, and giraffes on a large refuge. The 90-minute tour is not cheap, but was well worth the price to both see and hear about what is being done, and to know that we are helping in the... More

This was a terrific stay for the whole family. The accommodations were superb, and the tour was a real treat. The area also boasts lovely walks around the ocean and a great secluded beach.
