Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. As you have pointed out, we don't have many animals left in the game sanctuary. The sanctuary was originally established as an animal orphanage by my grandfather. We stopped taking in orphaned animals and have continued to care for the animals we have left. We have been very lucky to find good homes for many of the animal including the elephant and chimpanzee. We currently have zebra, ostrich and water buffalo. I am happy to read that you found the rooms big and clean. We hope to see you again. Salaams from us all
