We spent Easter weekend here---rented two bungalows---#3 and 4. Both had an excellent view of the animals and a peak at the zoo below. The rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. Loved the heated mattress pad. The refrig had water and OJ and there were lots of choices for hot drinks--coffee, tea and hot chocolate. The elephant visiting... More

First time visit. First of all ...the trainers/guides Kate and Courtney work very hard and do an excellent job in making sure everyone's needs are taken care of. They are also very devoted to the care of the animals. My husband and I stayed in bungalow #6 also called Josef's Jungle using a groupon voucher. The bungalows are well taken... More

We stayed with our two kids( 5 & 7) , what a fabulous place so cool. Elephants were definitely a big hit, we did the combo tour at night as a add on I would recommend it especially putting the elephants to bed. The daily tour was great and so was the breakfast in the am. Nice clean place, gets... More

If you enjoy seeing magnificent big cats, bears and other animals living in small cages, then by all means go. The elephants are an exception in that they have several acres to roam. This kind of place represents the subculture of hobby zoos, created by self serving individuals with a fascination with these animals. They do not have the best... More

We sincerely regret that SalinasTraveler missed the big picture we are trying so hard to present to our visitors, the picture that our other reviews obviously seem to prove that others do see and remember when the come to our facility. We were especially saddened to see such a review from a visitor that obviously lives in our community and... More

This was such a fun trip. We had tents #1 & 2 and were not bothered by the sound from the road, both were comfortable and well appointed. Viewing the animals was terrific, we added on the VIP, Pachyderm, Crunchy Time & Elephant Bed Time tours and. We loved every single minute. These trainers and care takers genuinely care about...

I was worried that I would not be getting my money's worth, but I honestly could have paid so much more money for this sort of experience! We loved every moment of our stay. We were in the honeymoon suite for 2 nights. We also did the VIP tour, Pachyderm Package, Crunch time and Bed time. I am still so... More

We loved our time at Vision Quest Ranch. I thought about writing a review on tripadvisor but a selfish bug made me resist the urge.We loved every minute of our stay. The tent/cabin was just fine. It was cool outside but the heater and bedding kept us warm. The staff know what they are doing and do it well. Walking... More

Our family(2 adults & 1 kid) just spent a wonderful weekend there. We like this place because: 1) This ranch has more big animals like lions, tigers, lynx, bear, elephants...... The elephants have open area to walk around, they are not chained. 2) Bungalow locations are more spread out. You can enjoy the peace & quiet. 3) Price is very... More

This was a stop over on our Spring Break vacation with kids ages 15 and 11. It easily became a highlight of our weeklong trip. Can’t say enough great things about the grounds, the staff, the animals – loved seeing how the trainers interact with the animals – you can see how much they love and respect them. We did... More

This was a dream come true for me. I gifted it to myself for my birthday. The staff is wonderful. The animals are beautiful and enchanting. Especially the elephants. It was so cool to help feed the cats and elephants. Breakfast delivered by elephant was my bet breakfast ever. Our safari tent was comfortable and we had a great view... More
