The way the animals are taken such good care of. The excellent staff.

The people were extremely helpful and friendly. The park is very well laid out and maintained.

I expected a "Wild Animal Park" like the ones we have frequented before. That is NOT what Animal Ark is. It is a very small, private sanctuary for the maintenance of a few wild animals that cannot be returned to the wild. But it was a delightful experience. The animals are well cared for. The people are great and the small size makes it eminently doable.

The sanctuary is well laid out, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the stories of each animal was touching and informative.

The staff was extremely nice, and loved sharing everything they knew.

The place was not conslusive to photography. I brought all my lenses and was ready for some great photos, but they have the humans angled off so that your only choice of trying to find the animals is through plexiglass. As you can imagine, the animals seek shade from the heat and thus go around the tree. Thier cage does, but you can not. So it was dissapointing. And if they were visible, the reflection off the plexiglass ruined the photo.

the rescued animals are well fed

Its location in the miđle of the desert. The road to the Ark was not asphalted, Driving is bad for the last few miles. Not like the pictures where visitors can apprach the animals. It's just like a mini zoo
