You can tell the keepers really care about the animals here. I wish I would have brought more money to tip them. Admission is way cheaper than it should be for this place. Well cared for animals here.

Mostly older exotic cats, emus, turtles, iguanas, lemurs and an obstinate pig in fairly spacious enclosures. Owner’s wife conducted the tour was intimately familiar with everything. Only cautions were the high weeds, and fire anthills. Boots would have been more appropriate footwear.

The whole tour is walking. Takes about an hour or more. The property is flat so you could push a wheelchair. It is mostly grass but should be easy enough.
