We had a great time here. The bed and breakfast is very cool. Canvas walls and wood floors with all the amenities. Comfy beds with an electric blanket. It gets cold at night. There is a nice space heater, but the blanket were enough for us. Clean bathroom with a fridge and coffee maker. You can hear the lion and... More

This was my third trip to Vision Quest, but the first time I've gotten around to actually writing a review. My husband & I LOVE this place! We typically arrive early afternoon in time to take the 1pm tour of the facility (included with your stay). Yes the animals are housed in cages, but most of them get out on... More

My friend, 4 year old daughter, & I arrived at 12:30pm our 1st day here. We took the 1pm-2pm free tour that comes with your over-night stay. The tour was enjoyable & informative. You are literally about 3 feet away from the animal exhibits which truly makes for an unique experience. Note: Make sure you eat before the tour &... More

We stayed for one night. We were greeted by a very friendly staff. The zoo tour that comes with a nights stay was fun and informative. We did crunch time which was an awesome experience where you get to help feed the big cats. Definitely a must do! The accommodations were clean and cozy. One negative I would give is... More

I wasn't expecting too much from the bungalows, but when my boyfriend and I arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. We booked bungalow 6 (Josef's Jungle) which is considered their "honeymoon suite". We slept like angels on their comfortable bed, enjoyed bathing in their outdoor private tub, and were pleased with the his and hers sinks and the double shower heads.... More

It's taken me a while to get around to writing this review as we stayed here in May 2014 for one night. I would highly recommend staying here. You get to spend a night in a room which is like a hybrid of a tent and a hotel room. The walls are canvas but the bathroom attached to it was... More

The bed and breakfast is just that, a bed and breakfast. Don't make any assumptions that this is anything like a real African safari. Heck, this is hardly a substitute for a trip to the zoo. The Los Angeles Zoo and the San Diego Zoo are far more animal oriented than this place. Better yet, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium... More

I took my eleven yr. old Granddaughter here for a 2 night stay, we both loved it!! The bungalows have wood floors and are decorated nicely! An elephant brought our breakfast and we both got to feed the elephant, it was an awesome experience!! Our favorite animals were the Elephants, and the Bengal Tigers, they were beautiful! We stayed in... More

I like to stay in unusual places. I found Vision Quest on a Google search and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful experience. From check in to check out the service was great. I really like the idea that proceeds benefit their ongoing quest to assist their animals. There was so much to do there. Our favorite... More

From beginning to end our stay was amazing. My friend and I booked the Leopards Liar and Zebra Zone bungalows for 3 nights. Both have views of the elephant play area. Leopards Liar offers slightly better viewing of the elephants and is served breakfast first. There is a very small area for parking next to the bungalow stairs. For the... More
