“Make sure your carriage driver knows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We told our tour director we wanted an afternoon carriage drive through the city with a driver who respects and cares his horse. We made a big point of this because of ACE.

“Brilliant A must-see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Our calesh driver insisted we visit this place. I was somewhat concerned as I feared we might see some terrible sights and distressing situations. But I am very glad we did go. Apart from the interesting ride to the centre, which showed us a bit of the outlying area of Luxor and the countryside; it is an uplifting experience to see what some compassion can do.
The centre is very clean and supplies good care to many poor horses, donkeys and small animals that would otherwise have very sad lives. Best of all, the angels that run this establishment are trying to educate the children of the area into the importance of caring for our fellow inhabitants. Egypt has long forgotten that their culture evolved because of their symbiotic relationship with cats, who kept the mice from consuming the grain, and working animals, who provided transportation. Historically, the Egyptian Empire flourished because they understood the importance of mutual provision. Now the land is populated by a different race Kim and her team are a small but bright beacon of light in this wilderness Please do visit this and do donate!

“Amazing animal care.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I have never seen such care given to animals,be it horses,donkeys,dogs or cats.
Their expertise in helping sick animals is second to non.
So many folk give their time for free ,and vets also give up their leave to work here.
I would have to say that ACE is at the forefront when dealing with sick animals ,compared with another animal hospital in Luxor.
Please try to visit for you will not be disappointed for their dedication and hard work must be applauded.

“They are learning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We went here with excellent caleche driver Radwan, No 194, from near Winter Palace. We saw how any animals get free treatment at this centre whilst he washed both his working horse and a young foal he was training. Not all working animals are badly treated and those that are can have better lives from the owners being educated by this establishment. Cheap drinks, good toilets and only a voluntary donation to enter.
Well worth a look!
