  • Had an amazing time on a private walking tour with my husband. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. My husband arranged it as a surprise for me, including feeding experiences, and she helped him keep it a secret until the end. I loved hearing the backgrounds of the animals, watching them interact, and seeing how happy they were. I would highly recommend visiting. Just know, you may not see all the animals because they either sleep during the day or are trying to keep cool. It is not the fault of the staff, you’re on the animals’ time and at their home.
  • I booked a private tour for my wife and myself and we got to experience this wonderful place today. Everything about it was amazing. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and able to answer our questions, often times before we even knew what to ask. We saw almost all of the animals (remember you’re on the animals time and at their home so you may not get to see them all) and we also fed the baby lemurs. This was truly a great time and I recommend everyone get out there as soon as you can.
