A sanctuary for orphans and for hurt animals and for animals too used to humans to survive on their own in the nature. The guide presented the inhabitants and the story of each and everyone of them. They do a great job at the sanctuary, and the visit was very interesting.

Thank you for the wonderful review! We work hard to ensure high quality care to the animals, and strive to educate our visitors about the animals here. We want to make sure to express how we can all help prevent more animals from being in our care temporarily or permanently. We appreciate your support through your visit and for taking the time to review us here. We rely on our tours for income to care for and rescue wildlife and we couldn't do it without you.

We had cocktails on the patio before our tour started (highly recommended based on the view) and then were taken through the sanctuary to visit all the animals that live there. Such a cool place with kind people and interesting animal stories.

We want to provide a way to educate about respecting wildlife, and those animals here permanently help us teach. They also allow public to see and enjoy wildlife in a closer setting that is respectful to the animals. Thank you for your support.
