Ok what do you do when you are falled out and want something different to spend a few hours. This is an animal rescue focused on returning animals to the wild. We took the 5km local bus from downtown, very cheap, entrance 150 ars per person and 1.5 hours guided walk through animals and birds. Armadillos, parrots, toucans, Eagles, monkeys... More

Nice little animal and bird park, doing good animal rescue work. Unfortunately when we visited today only Spanish speaking staff were on hand, and little of the signage is multilingual. The Portugese and English speaking visitors (like us) missed out on a lot of the experience. Worth a visit but would pay to check if any multilingual staff are around.

Good place to see many of the local animals. They are animals that have been rescued from road maim, hunters, or other misfortunes. Climb aboard a big truck with seats to enter into the reserve. Animals kept within enclosed areas. Monkeys & birds are in large caged areas They are well kept, the folks that care for them really do... More

I normally don't like visiting zoos because of the animals living conditions. But here the animals are rescued from trade or wounds and are reinsert when possible. Nothing exceptionnel about the animals to see except maybe the wild cats and some birds but it's a nice project worth to see if u still have one day spent there and don't... More

Great activity for a few hours in Iguazu not spent at the falls. The reservation is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rerelease of all different kinds of animals and so we got to see a wide range of wildlife. Carmen, our guide, spoke English and Spanish and (as non-Spanish speakers) made sure that we got all of the information... More

A wildlife refuge staffed by caring and knowledgeable staff. Not a zoo but you can see local wildlife up close.

After 2 days visiting the falls we were not certain how to spend our extra time in Iguazu. Before returning to Buenos Aires' urban environment, we were interested in visiting other nature sites. We took a bus ride from central Iguazu. The bus driver was very nice to assist us and dropped us off just next to the reserve. This... More

We first wanted to go there because on the way back from Iguazu falls we had some time left. It was in the end a great choice. It's not easy to locate and it doesn't target big audience. You won't find many people there but it's the best animal refuge ever seen. Hidden 3km in the jungle abandoned, poisoned and... More

This place works not only as a tourist atracttion but as a centre for rescue, healing and shelter for species that have been injured by hunters or car accidents. It´s extraordinary the job people do there, they show true love for animals. One can feel it in every little story they tell along the visit.

I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived at Guiraoga. We waited about 20 minutes and boarded an open air truck for a 10 minute drive into the jungle. We walked through a few museum like rooms with displays related to local wildlife. Then we were guided through a number of live animal exhibits on a path leading through... More
