Had a very short stopover but worth the visit. We adopted 2 Donkeys between us for $25 each. We also saw wild Donkeys on route which were just standing in the road so important to help them out.

This is a wonderful haven for donkeys. It is a very basic place, but you are allowed to go in and brush the donkey's (which they love!). They are all very friendly and well cared for. A nice place to spend a little time.
