  • Our guide was so knowledgeable. Birds, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, etc. We were there for 3 hours and totally enjoyed ourselves. The place is very clean and beautiful grounds. It was fun riding in the safari jeeps and walking through the bird sanctuary. Perfect day!
  • Well worth the price of admission! 2 hours by jeep through the 400 acres, 45 minutes walking tour of the caged cats, primates, birds, and the desert fox. Robert answered all our questions and educated us with his vast knowledge. If you haven't yet visited, move this to the top of your bucket list!
