The owners love their animals a lot and share their knowledge and love in safari tours with very limited number of guests. 1972 land crusers are fun. Feeding 5 young giraffes is something you'd love to experience. $35 for a ticket is just a small...More

What a surprise to find this 110 acre animal preserve where 3 species of zebra, antelope and endangered species of giraffes are cared for and bred and allowed to roam in the open. Our grandchildren delighted in feeding and petting the giraffes. We did too!

Bring your binoculars. Sometimes the animals are a little far away. Short movie and a jeep tour. It's worth the price of admission.More

Thanks for your review. The video is playing when guests arrive so that they can learn about conservation until the actual tour starts. Something to keep early arrivals occupied. Our animals are in large enclosures and some days they are further away. We have binoculars...More

Cool Place. Where else can you pet a giraffe! Look at zebra's and other African wild animals. The antelope are cool too.

I dont know -- suggest calling and asking the preserve. A concern would be if your dog barks or runs about.
