Very informative tour of unreleasable wolf and wolf dogs with a few other species of dingo and fox. Down a dirt wash board road bit so worth while.

She is definitely not too young. The staff is wonderful and the wolves beautiful. She will be thrilled. The prices are on their website but if you call them they are very friendly and will answer all of your questions.
