I took my boyfriend for his birthday, and we had the best time. Everyone at the B&B were fantastic, so friendly and helpful and knowledgable. We did 2 add ons, crunch time and feeding the big cats, both worth the money. The room was great and despite the cool weather outside, it was warm and cozy.Breakfast was delicious. The robes...

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Bed & Breakfast. The people were wonderful. Our bunk #8 had a great view of the elephants, zebra, Asian water buffalo and the ostrich. The breakfast was great, and delivered by elephant, we even got to feed them. We did the crunch time and bed time which were fun. The tour of their... More

My husband and I visited Vision Quest Safari Bed and Breakfast yesterday and it was absolutely delightful. I love animals and was so pleased to see that the animals were so well cared for. The grounds were well kept and each animal seemed to be truly happy to be there. The tour was excellent and the tour guide was very... More

This place looked great on line but when we went there to stay we were amazed at how they exceeded our expectations by a long shot.You have to make a point to go stay at least one night. My family is asking when we can go back so I will be booking another trip soon. You should do the zoo... More

I'm giving them 3 stars because due to the heavy rain I didn't get to do the tour (which takes about an hour) which is included if you're staying in their bed and breakfast bungalow as well as staff with an elephant delivering continental picnic style breakfast. I know It's not their fault but still I can't rate them excellent... More

We regret that the weather was so poor on the day of this visitors experience but we more regret they chose to discredit our facility and in turn, influence our rating in a negative direction for reasons they clearly admit was beyond our control. Lastly, our pricing reflects the costs involved with caring for our animals. Although few realize how... More

We just stayed here last week (November 18-19, 2014) and it was a blast! Definitely do the extra tours, Crunch Time and Butch's Bedtime. Well worth the extra money! Feeding the elephants and big cats, and having our breakfast delivered by Malika the elephant, was amazing. The staff were friendly, and knowledgeable, and the tent cabins were nice. It was... More

We visited as a surprise birthday trip for our 11-year-old daughter, who will probably become a veterinarian or zoologist and did the whole experience: B&B, Walk with the Animals (private & personal tour), Butch's Bedtime (help feed dinner to the elephants & escort them to their pens for the night), and Crunchtime (help feed dinner to several wild cats...listen to...

My husband and I just loved it here, we were actually sad to leave. It is elephant heaven! We enjoyed our 2 night stay in tent #3.. very quiet, comfortable and clean. Sitting on our porch viewing the elephants was the best. We especially enjoyed the extra tours given by Kristie and Alex, who were extra kind and informative. It... More
