Predator Experience - Walking with Wolves - Amazing experience
May 2021
Thank you for making my special birthday extra special by allowing just a group of 4 people to experience these wonderful animals. It was amazing to get so close to the wolves and be treated like 1 of the pack. I could not believe how quiet and placid the wolves were. It was a real treat to take them for a walk.
Are group was welcomed in a friendly manner & the handlers were very knowledgeable giving plenty of information to us throughout the experience on everything wolverine & how this would compare with a K9.
At the time of going, the company was just about to start an expansion of their business.
We will certainly be back to experience the wolves again if we are in the area.

Ignore the bad reviews, this place is great!!
May 2021
Before I write reviews, I always check out the bad reviews - mainly for my own personal entertainment. However I have to comment on some of the awful reviews the predator experience has received.

Firstly the type of people that write these kind of reviews (we all know the type), obviously have some kind of bee in their bonnet. Many of the instances the management have offered compensation or have told us what really happened in their response. After meeting Dee and Dan, I have to say I'm on their side and trust what they say. Some people just expect the world to be handed to them and complain about literally everything.

Anyway, rant over - on with my review.

I was pleasantly surprised with just how good the directions actually were. Some of these small villages are difficult to navigate but the directions were spot on. I even ran it through google streetview just to make sure I knew what to expect.

Upon arrival, 20 mins early or so. We were greeted by Dee. Another couple had arrived too and we were all chatting until the final couple arrived. Everyone was friendly and "normal" and I knew it would be a great experience!

We then met the two wolves, Maska and Kajika (I couldn't remember their names but found them in another review!). We met them by placing our hands on the rear of the vehicle gate and letting them sniff. They were then let down and wandered around us allowing us to stroke them. They were huge! Around 55kg i believe! I'm happy they were in good moods!

We took it in turns in our pairs walking each wolf. We got plenty of time on the leash and the couple that didn't have a leash could walk next to one of them and stroke their heads and backs.

Dee and Dan were extremely friendly, informative, enjoyed a joke or two and gave us great information. They answered all our questions and I have no doubt they know what they are talking about.

Addressing the value for money. Well its not a cheap experience but its certainly on par with other animal encounter experiences at zoos and wildlife centres. It is a family run business so don't expect grand entrance signs with a restaurant and extensive gift shop for example. But I thought the value for money was excellent. How many times do you get to experience walking with wolves? Yes they're hybrids but they're as close as you're going to get in this country!

I wish Dee, Dan and all the other staff the best of luck in developing their business. Like most family businesses at this time, they rely on the public to have these encounters and keep their business running. They are extremely popular when you look at their availability and the small number of bad reviews do not reflect the experience you'll get. You will also get more out of the experience if you actually participate and don't just stand around quietly. And also be aware that there are several working farms right next door to the experience with sheep/cows everywhere. These wolves are well fed but would love the chance to free roam the countryside and help themselves to the buffet next door. This is why they aren't allowed to run around wild.... (just answering another bad review.... honestly.....)

Keep up the great work guys and we will be back on our next visit!

This experience was incredibly informative, immersive and inspiring. We learned more than we expected and the information was given in a way that made you want to ask questions and just keep learning. There were plenty of laughs and lots of interaction. I’m really looking forward to returning in the future.

Thank you for such an amazing time with your foxes and wolves today!

Bought it as a gift for my Dad and partner and it is clear they have both had an absolutely fantastic, educational and immersive, once in a lifetime, experience.

Dee and Daniel were very impressive, entertaining and knowledgeable hosts and made sure everyone had the best experience possible.

I am sure we will be back for more experiences in the future.

Highly recommended 👏👍👏

Walking with Wolves - fantastic experience!
Apr 2021
Brilliant experience Walking with Wolves, Maska and Kajika were gentle giants and very photogenic! Dee and Daniel provided lots of information relating to wolves, their history and how different they are to domesticated dogs. Nothing was too much trouble and they answered many questions. The sun was even shining - it was great to be part of the Pack!

A must do when in the area
Apr 2021
My wife and I did the walking with wolves and fox experience as part of our honeymoon. The experience with the foxes was ok, but the experience with the wolves was fantastic, unique and almost otherworldly. The wolves were gorgeous, majestic while dee and dan were experienced and gave good explanations. Walking the wolves was such a treat and surreal. Overall the experience with wolves exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend it!

It was part of my wife's Christmas present after a horrendous year. It was superb, meeting the wolves was mind blowing, and the talk by Dee and Daniel was fascinating, their love of the animals shone through. Joyce was overjoyed, their care and consideration in helping her get the most out of the experience despite Joyce's difficulties was outstanding.
