Lots to see here and some really cool interactions with animals. We couldn't believe how tame the wolves were. The presentations were very well done and the staff were all very friendly and professional. This place is worth checking out and is a nice setting for families. There's not much for food available here, so it's best to come well... More

We visited this spot before our cruise. It is off the beaten path and for a while we thought we was going the wrong way. This place is a gem. For $15 a person you can't pass it up. We got up close encounters with so many animals it was over whelming. The people were so friendly and knowledgeable on... More

Everyone that works there was so friendly, helpful and no matter how many questions we asked they never tired of giving us answers and information. My friend, Pam works at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh and has always wanted to pet a sloth, her favorite animal. We were able to pet the animals and get up close to a wolf,... More

This was a last minute Trip Advisor find that we took a chance on when we found ourselves needing to occupy some time in Miami. We weren't really up for a large zoo day, and this was a perfect fit. I dare say it was more fun than a typical zoo experience. The staff was quick to make sure visitors... More

My daughter even got to give bottles to baby pigs. It does have a feel like your in Dominican Republic but thats what makes this place different and... More

We visit Miami every year and wanted something different to do this year... We love animals so we chose to visit this place.. It is way out in the outskirts of Miami... It looks like a homemade zoo...At first my daughter hated it, the small cages, the dirt path, the bugs flying around, the animals pacing... It was a bit... More

This place I did not like some animals are in very small cages! White fox Elsa, was very nervous and constantly biting her hair, raccoons also had very little space. Show the animals was pleasant and contact them comforted me also staff was very nice to me.

Ventured here form Sunny Isles on a recent trip to Miami. Getting here was BRUTAL! Being tourists we didn't know the roadway systems so our GPS took us via I-95 and about 30 minutes into the trip I-95 ends and becomes a 3 lane road with hundreds of stop lights. The GPS said 1 hour and 7 minutes and it... More

From the name, I was expecting a safari ride of some sort. That wasn't the case. Not just that, the place was very small and not enough to walk around. They did have a presentation where they bring out animals and talk about them and allow you to touch them etc. That was nice. I went with my 3 year... More
