  • A good place to visit if you plan your trip ahead and align the time of you visit to some of the events taking placing in the sanctuary. Otherwise you still might run into one or two staff taking animals out of the enclosure for some fresh air where you can observe them closely.

  • Had a great day today with the kids Nice place to stay and tranquility..
