    friendly kangaroo
    My daughter and I enjoyed this more than the theme parks. A variety of exotic animals which you can touch, a few were bribed with food but several approached us on their own. All were clean and well cared for. Frosty the young kangaroo was the friendliest. A note on transportation- Lyft was about $20, (couldn't get one back, had to take uber whichwas 47, and a taxi driver I asked at hotel said it would be at least 100)- it's about half hour from downtown Orlando. Also if you book private monkey- no jewelry. Group tour will not engage w monkeys.

    Experience worth every cent
    I had a blast at the Exotic Animal Experience. If you wanna see amazing animals with their own little feisty, adorable attitudes and also support a small local business owner then this is it. My guide was amazing, funny and so knowledgeable. The owner of the farm so open to answering any questions. If you live or are visiting Florida and have 2 hours to spare, go here you won’t regret it. I don’t have a lot of photos;yet, since I opted in for photo and video packages that they send via email. But here’s how I was greeted.

    Best time ever!
    This is the very best of any animal experience. Unlike a zoo, you have hands on interaction with all of the wonderful animals. From Baby Girl, the camel, meeting you in the parking lot, irish wolf hound Keeva and her buddy Tanner at the gate, the lemurs, kangaroos. I could go on and on. All the tour guides and the owner are very knowledgeable

    Definitely should be on your bucket list
    I don't think I've ever written a review on here, but I was compelled to express how much fun I had today. Leslie, the owner, has an amazing farm with so many different exotic animals. My personal favorite was the private experience with the monkeys. Highly recommend!

    Wonderful Experience!
    Loved everything about the group tour. Got to touch the animals. We chose to let them take the photos so we could enjoy our time with the animals. They took great pics and video of our family. The animals came to us to be petted, animals are well cared for and happy. Staff is great and make the experience wonderful. Loved all the animals, highly recommend this adventure. A+ plus

This was my favorite part of my trip. To be able to hold and interact with all of the animals was worth every dollar spent! It was an amazing experience and I would recommend this place to anyone. The animals are very well taken care of and the staff are amazing and truly love the animals and their jobs.

What an exceptionally fun, interesting, hands-on, educational, and just plain Adorable animal encounter this was!!
I am always looking for unique animal or outdoorsy experiences when we take a family vacation and this was one of the best things we’ve ever done. Such an amazing group of animals and you can pet everything! Well, you can pet everything if it wants you to, and I think pretty much every animal except one (the camel) was approachable during our visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions. It was an expensive indulgence but it was fantastic and even though it went by way too quickly, it did not seem rushed at all. There was always time for petting the animals and asking questions.
The adults and teens all loved it, awesome memory-making experience for the family.

This place is awesome. Leslie the Owner is incredibly nice and truly loves all of her animals. Jodi our tour guide was phenomenal with great energy and she was super informative. Spencer one of the other tour guides was very nice and friendly. I highly recommend the Ultimate VIP experience, you will definitely not regret it. The amount of animals you get to touch and interact with is incredible. A must see for any animal lover.

Looking for something different to do while in Orlando. Always do the Disney, Universal, Beach etc. Found this! What a gem! This was soooo interesting and soooo much fun. We had a personal experience with so many exotic animals. The owner Leslie and her guides are very informative and patient answering all questions!! We did the Ultimate Personal and it was worth every penny. Also Jodi the photographer took the very best photos and a video that we will have forever. Planning on framing some of the pics. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and we are soooo glad we did it! Thanks Leslie and crew!!!!

This is a hidden gem!!!! Up close hands
On with animals you never would be able to interact with. We visit multiple times a year and it’s always exciting. Well worth making time to visit Educational aspect of the animals is remarkable gives everyone a different outlook and why they are living their best life

Booked this on a last minute trip 2 Orlando bc Disney and Universal were booked up due 2 CoVid. Finally something good happened bc of Covid!! Prob would have not even known about this place orherwise. Beats the heck out of an exhausting day at a congested theme park, I think this is actually the happiest place in earth. The personality of these animals are so diverse and unique, Endearing, charming, shy. mischievous - just amazing.
