My adult son and girlfriend came down for a visit, and we wanted to be doing a nature focused activity. We found this place through TA, and very glad we did. Anna was our tour guide for 1 1/2 hours, she loved showing off the animals and giving us a good running dialogue of how each creature came to be... More

It was an awesome experience. Not only because you get to see the animals uo close and get to hold some of them. It is because of the stories about them being resuced . They do amazing work and I recommend everyone to and also donate.

We were very happy we decided to reserve our place for this Non Profit Sanctuary. The Big Cats were our favorite, and it was nice to see them so happy and healthy. Anna, our tour guide, was very informative and obviously loves what she does. The best part is that it is a Non Profit Sanctuary. The amount you pay... More

Itook my big cat loving wife to this place for our anniversary yesterday and it was amazing. I've been to a few of these types of sanctuary and this one is by far the cleanest and best maintained of the bunch. If you love animals and are in the area it's a must visit. I was amazed they spent 90... More

A visit to the wildlife sanctuary should be a must if you are in the palm beach area. You get up close and personal with a wide range of animals and our guide Ana was extremely friendly and knowledge not only about the species but the background of each of the individual animal. One of the highlights of the holiday.

We had an amazing experience! Ana was our guide and she was very knowledgable and personal. If you love animal encounters this place is a must. There were several tigers and a lion which were all so beautiful, healthy, and lively. Some of them even played and interacted with us. I highly recommend this sanctuary. Better than any zoo trip...

There is a surprise when you enter this place. The animals are unique well cared for and the guides passionate about what they do. We had gone to Africa and saw many animals but saw some here I didn't know existed. Good for the whole family.

Hello, Friends invited me and I was pleasantly surprised over and over as the tour went on. The animals and the staff are obvious through their interaction, and it was quite amazing to see the love they had for each other. All of the animals looked healthy happy and were energetic and playful. The grounds and animal areas were very... More
