The tour person was very knowledgeable about the animals in the preserve. A wonderful place to take children on the Mendocino Coast to see African animals up close.

This was a wonderful experience, very educational and an animal lovers' dream come true. Beautiful grounds as you drive in towards the barn. AND - I got to 'kiss' a giraffe before the outing was done!

This was my third visit and was a surprise treat for a visiting fellow animal lover. He loved every minute. I’ll definitely be back, more than once.
