It is a pleasant experience. It really looks like African wilderness there. You see lemurs, zebras, Water Buffalo, lots of antelope, camels, and many gorgeous birds. The woman who gave the tour was really knowledgeable and gave tons of information about every animal. But this is a very, very expensive place. It is $75 per person, plus it costs $7 to park your car, plus they want to sell you Water Buffalo food for $5. Plus feeding the lemurs is another $20 and feeding anything else costs more, too. It feels like they take a big chunk of money from you - $75 -- and then they squeeze every penny out of you with all these extras. Don't go here -- go to Giraffe Ranch, which is much more interesting and exciting. The same people own both. But Giraffe Ranch has SPECTACULAR animals -- the Giraffes -- and then even more spectacular -- Rhinoceroses. Those animals are amazing.

Don't like the name -- we can't remember it and therefore can never find it on the internet. We are horse people and were pretty shocked at the condition of the Haflinger stallion. All the other animals were in great shape -- then this stallion came out covered with body sores, his face rubbed raw from some kind of dermatitis. We thought he was suffering from two or three different conditions, all treatable in a stable, but he was out with the antelopes and really suffering from his ailments. Has he been forgotten?

Feeding the Lemurs, knowledgeable about the animals.

You would probably get more people to visit if you did some advertising and drop the price considerably.

The interaction with the animals. Definitely have to upgrade for the lemur feeding!

Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff

The warm reception and the enthusaism of the the two ladies

Perfect experience for younger children. Very informative, well done and unique. Far better than any other safaris of this sort.
