One of the best things i did my whole trip, about a 30min-45min drive out of cusco, nice scenic drive. no entrance fee, runs on donations and a store they have. was greeted by a young tour guide, told us all about every animal in there, how they got there, if they can be released again or not, what they eat, and what eats them. pumas, peru deer, alpacas, lamas, parrots, jungle cat kittens, birds of prey, Condors, and a few others. condors have a nice large avairy that you can walk in and get pretty close to the big birds and get nice pictures. and they show you where they get the colours for the alpaca wool, like certain rocks and plants for different colours. they have a large shop to buy many fine baby alpaca times and other animal items and sculptures. with a donation you get a parting gift of a wooden condor whistle, a really nice unexpected treat. A great small sanctuary worth seeing and a worthy cause to donate to.
there is also a alpaca/lama petting ranch just down the road, only 4 or 5 pens, but a few different kinds and you can hand feed them, ask for grass if there is none out. also on donations, and has a shop that serves alcohol! haha.
