Wow We did the one hour tour and got to pet/kiss the wolves, hold wolf cubs, hold a sloth, feed emus, feed and pet porcupines, hold the 13 ft python, feed the alligators and learn about the animals and how they ended up in this educational facility. There were so many animals there and the staff talked to us about... More

Went to safari edventure for the "in the scenes" tour with my sister whose favorite animal is the sloth. (So as you can imagine we were there specifically for the sloth. lol) they advised us upon arrival that sometimes the sloth doesn't feel like being held and hands on interaction isn't guaranteed but regardless we would be able to visit...

Well being there twice, once with my lady and once with grand kids my lady and her daughter and son-in -law and enjoying both visits. It is a very rustic cute experience. The help are very knowledgeable and engaging. They teach you about different animals and even let you touch some during a introduction. It is a worth while place... More

This is our third trip to Safari Edventure and let me say it gets better each time! My family members are animal lovers so this is a must do when they visit from New Jersey. The animals are loved by the caretakers and most are rescues that makes it more special. The show was both informative and fun. They are... More

If you happen to finish early at monkey jungle, this is a nice place to stop by too. I knew this was a nonprofit sanctuary, so I was willing to support. I have to say I'm concerned about the size of some of the cages though. For example, I'm not even sure the white peacocks should be in those small... More

This sounds more like an advertisement for Monkey Jungle than a legitimate review. This would violate Trip Advisor rules. What if you want to come here, and don't want to go to Monkey Jungle? This review makes it sound like you should always go there first. Also, other than the example about the white peacocks, there were no specifics given... More

My boyfriend and I took a day trip to Safari Edventure and I cannot praise the experience enough! It is a family run animal sanctuary. The staff were highly informative about each and every animal and enthusiastic to share their knowledge to the general public. Many of the animals are rescues and it is apparent the owner Glen and his... More

For a small non-profit santuary, the place is very well maintained. The place is not big, there are many different types of trees and plants, providing much appreciated shade as well as food for the animals: including loquats, mangos, avocados and more! I am most excited about the wolf encounter, where I can come face to face with a big... More

It was really a very bad experience of us! We like animals and we were very sad,when we saw,that most of the animals have very little cages! They dont have enough place! We felt pity for the animals!

Honestly, the highlight of our entire trip. And no smarmy gift shop. They let you take pictures and genuinely care about these animals. I learned so much from our guide, Chris, and made so many animal friends. I'm glad they have a safe place to stay! Don't miss it!!!!!!!!!

We took an "in the scenes" tour during a recent trip to Miami. It was 100000% worth it. Amazing to get to interact with so many animals and learn about how they came to the Safari Edventure. I cannot think of another place where you can hold a baby sloth and feed an alligator and still learn about wolf dog... More
