This place is a hidden treasure in Okeechobee, FL. The animals are some of the most amazing creatures we have seen in such close proximity. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to see exotic animals up close.

We found out about this place through word of mouth. It was a wonderful experience. These animals are loved and it is evident in the level of care they receive. They have a wide variety of exotics and being able to see them up so close was awesome. This is a great place to visit with the whole family!!!

I am a big animal lover, so places/people that care so much for well-being of their animals get a lot of respect from me. It was amazing to be in such a close proximity to wild cats, bear, lama and other exotic animals. great... More

I love this place. You get way closer here than any Zoo I've ever been. So many animals... so little time. I plan on going back very soon. What an excellent experience.

I based my plan to visit Animal Adventures in Lake Okeechobee on the stellar reviews here on Trip Advisor. We were so excited to visit. When we arrived at the address (given above) there was not a human being in sight. We saw many neighborhood dogs, a llama, some turkeys and a cat. The signage was AWFUL and confusing. The... More

This was a whim trip for my husband and I as it was raining and overcast. We drove out to the park not knowing what to expect. A donation box is located at front of park and after seeing the care given to the animals is well worth the price. A very large variety of animals are being cared for... More

This was a great place that no one in okeechobee knows about. We asked everyone where it was and no one new. So we took our chances and we were suprised with the amount of animals they had. It costs a $10 donation per person, but is worth it.
