Visited once met a group of friends there. Was immediately barked at by very nasty owner for parking in the wrong spot. Mind you there were NO SIGNS to tell you where to park. Upon touring the place, I observed filthy overgrown small cages. The animals were depressed and it was so sad that I left. I hope the animals... More

Having lived in Okeechobee for many years, I decided today would be the day to go to Animal Adventures.... umm, where EXACTLY is it? After traveling down what seemed to be a couple dirt, single lane roads...passing by what seemed should have been some condemned houses along the way... we FINALLY get to... I think... this "so-called" Animal Adventures. Considering... More

I will never again visit this place or donate to its cause. In my opinion, this is not a caring environment for the animals and they are basically not nice people.

The place was a ghost town. We showed up at 11 when the place was support to open and it looked like something out of a horror movie. All gates were locked at there was large no trespassing signs. A member of our group honked their horn trying to get anyone's attention , at that time the lady yelled to... More

I felt that the name "Animal Adventures" to be very misleading. The place looked run down and unattractive, not to mention the customer service or lack thereof. The "NO TRESPASSING" and "PRIVATE PROPERTY" signs were not very welcoming. I will not be returning and hope the animals are doing well.

This place is a hidden treasure in Okeechobee, FL. The animals are some of the most amazing creatures we have seen in such close proximity. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to see exotic animals up close.

We found out about this place through word of mouth. It was a wonderful experience. These animals are loved and it is evident in the level of care they receive. They have a wide variety of exotics and being able to see them up so close was awesome. This is a great place to visit with the whole family!!!

this experience was just amaizing! very hands -on staff that cares and really knows their animals. I am a big animal lover, so places/people that care so much for well-being of their animals get a lot of respect from me. It was amazing to be in such a close proximity to wild cats, bear, lama and other exotic animals. great... More

I love this place. You get way closer here than any Zoo I've ever been. So many animals... so little time. I plan on going back very soon. What an excellent experience.

I based my plan to visit Animal Adventures in Lake Okeechobee on the stellar reviews here on Trip Advisor. We were so excited to visit. When we arrived at the address (given above) there was not a human being in sight. We saw many neighborhood dogs, a llama, some turkeys and a cat. The signage was AWFUL and confusing. The... More
