This place is amazing. I do not support zoos, or aquariums, or anything that inhumanely holds animals as prisoners to be gawked at. So this was a great alternative to take my kid to admire some beautiful animals in a humane environment that supports a good cause. The animals looked happy, well taken care of, natural, and the staff were very knowledgeable and seemed to care for the animals a lot. Feeding the giraffe was absolutely amazing. Such a beautiful creature to be next to and admire. I am still in awe. My only complaint about my experience was the animal heads mounted on the wall in the barn/gift shop. I can't see why these would be mounted up on the wall like trophies when the idea of this program seems to be more on the humane side. It seems contradicting, where they're trying to keep animals from going extinct, yet they are mounted on the wall as if they were hunted trophies. It's actually pretty offensive as an animal lover, and something I really was surprised to see at this establishment. It seems confusing, and I really didn't want my kid to see that. With that said, I would definitely come back. From what I can see and observe, this seems very humane and for a good cause. It is really great to have a place to take my kid to see animals that supports something good, and isn't just my kid gawking at animals kept as prisoners in cages. These animals have vast amounts of land to roam and are in a natural environment, and behaving naturally as they would in the wild for the most part. It was definitely worth it, we will be back.

This was such a wonderful experience for our grandchildren and for us as well. We felt very safe with the covid protocols they have in place. Would highly recommend this tour. The guides were exceptional.

My partner and I stayed over Christmas and had an unforgettable time. We stayed at the Bridge Cottage and had everything we needed to cook, clean, cozy up at the fire, and relax in the hot tub out back. Point Arena is also conveniently close to Mendocino, where we took advantage of Russian Gulch Park + Fern Grove Trail. We went on a group tour on our last day and had a great (and safe!) time visiting the animals. Owners were hands-off throughout which made for a private + lovely experience. Already recommended my colleagues come out here, too.

What a great little adventure right here in NorCal! We took the guided tour, where you climb in the back of a vintage Land Rover, they drive to each animal enclosure, you hop out and get to look at the animals right up close while the guides tell you all about them and answer any questions you can think of. As you can kind of see in the picture, the seating area in the Land Rover is not very big. Any adults will definitely have to hunch over because there's not sufficient headroom, and the limited leg/knee room meant you had to turn to the side. I was worried it would soon become unbearable, but it turned out fine, as you're only sitting for about 3 minutes at a time. Due to Covid, they put up a plastic barrier down the middle, between us and the other couple in our vehicle, and made sure we all wore masks the whole time and stayed distanced from other family groups (there were 3 groups total). It was an awesome tour, well worth the price, I only wish they had more types of animals to see! Being able to feed a GIRAFFE at the end was a once in a lifetime experience! I highly recommend B. Bryan Preserve and commend the work they do.

This is a wonderful place to go with your little ones for a family adventure. The place was exceptionally clean and equipped with all the things you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The animal safari is highly recommended along with soaking in the hot tub.
