We did it all. Our 30th wedding anniversary celebrations. Great bungalow with lions and tigers roaring during the night. Elephant feeding, washing and watching. Territory protected by an ostrich. Petted some cats. Learned lots and lots about lots of incredible animals. Served breakfast by Butch, the biggest elephant we have ever met. And we got to bath parts of him!

The venue is great. The people are fantastic. The concept is "right on!!" The animals are 'up close and personal' The accomodations are comfortable, clean, well appointed and the bungalows quaint. We had a wonderful experience with the animals and the very nice people but would be hard pressed to give this property a high rating because of "THE DOGS!!!!"... More

If you love animals, or if you want to give a gift to someone who loves animals, here's an opportunity to get up close and personal with some really interesting and exotic ones. It's as close to Africa as one can get without a long plane flight...the bungalows and setting make it a unique and fun experience. It's close to... More

We really enjoyed out stay at Vision Quest. We had the Big Cat House. The bungalow was every bit as nice as a hotel room. Arrived shortly before 1pm and took the tour, our room was ready early so checked in. About 3:30 had our first animal visitor and an hour or so later the second animal visited. The staff... More

LOVED our stay here! My daughter and I stayed in the Pacheyderm Palace - the room is VERY clean, warm and cozy with the wonderful heated mattress! It was fun to watch the elephants in the play yard, especially the connection between the zebra and Butch - it is too cute! It was wonderful hearing the lions and other animal... More

We planned to stay only one night but wish we could have stayed at least one more. My six year old boys loved it and so did we! The bungalows were very nice and very clean. They had everything there for you to make your stay comfortable, including heating blankets! At night it we heard the lions roaring and we... More

My family of 4 loved our stay! The breakfast delivery via elephant was the huge highlight and is a memory we will never forget! Clean and comfortable rooms which exceeded our expectations. My only issue was that our room, the monkey manor, was one of our only options as a family of 4. It was close to the road, so... More

My 13 year old son and I visited the safari and really had a great time. We stayed in one of the bungalows which was very unique. The one we were in was called Monkey Manor and is the number 2 bungalow. I would not recommend staying in either number 1 or 2 though. There is a main street right... More
