This animal sanctuary is free to visit, but donations are encouraged and gratefully accepted. There is a small gift shop at the entrance and then a series of wooden walkways in and around the facility. Ample rest rooms and easy walking make this a very nice place to visit, especially with little ones in tow. There really wasn't anything that... More

Busch Sanctuary is an amazing place. There's no admission and you can spend a leisurely time walking through the well kept paths and enjoying up close and personal views of Florida wildlife. They provide educational programs designed for young visitors but always a treat for grownups too. You can't help but want to make a donation at the end of... More

Both a rescue/recovery and educational facility. Well laid out. A variety of local birds and animals. Highlight for me was a Florida Panther ... beautiful animal. Free admission -- make a donation. The cypress swamp had a primeval feel ... algae coated turtles were fun to watch. Plan to spend, maybe 45 minutes - not that big but worth a... More

Our grandson loves this place, it's a must-see when he comes to visit. Lots of animals, and very educational. Make sure you leave a donation, too, so they continue their good work!

I recently visited and found this sanctuary to be a great place to visit. It is not very well known and so a great hidden gem. They have many of florida wildlife. Great for families or anyone interested in florida wildlife and terrain
