We have visited this area of Crete for the last nine years and this was our first visit, how sorry we are. We took the time to visit this year and it frankly made a day of our holiday. We were there for two and a half hours and really enjoyed the time. The animals are clearly loved and cared for by the staff who are very friendly, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the animals. A visit here suits all ages from very young to old. The cost of the visit is worth the money as I suspect most goes to the care and environment of the animals. We will visit again and can only praise and recommend a visit to this little gem.
