I hate to see caged in animals but this was a fun stop. Some of the animals were a little ornary but who wouldn’t be? The camel was very friendly and they had lots of fun goats and interesting birds. Be wary of the ostriches!...More

The animal garden is fun and only takes around 20-30 minutes to see everything. They have camels, monkeys, snakes, peacocks, goats, cows and a few other animals. Contrary to the picture however, you cannot hold any of the snakes or other animals and there is...More

All of the snakes that have been rescued are all housed inside enclosures that can only be accessed by the staff of Philips Animal Garden.

1/2 day driving self-tour; suggestions? (8 Replies)
We are renting an SUV and would like to take a self-driving tour of the island. We would like to see some of the natural beauties of the island without going way off road. A bit off road is fine but we aren't pioneers! Can anyone suggest a route and places to visit. One of our stops must be the Philips Animal Garden. Thanks!

You can drive up to the golf course/light house and continue on the dirt road that is near the water. Drive as far as you are comfortable and then come back. It is really not a very tough road to navigate. You can stop at the lighthouse for a few minutes for a nice picture.
