When you arrive at the sanctuary you are given a tour and the guides are very knowledgeable and really enjoy their jobs. The best animals are the Condors, Pumas, Bears and Macaws. Watching the condors fly from one side to the other is the highlight....More

It was great seeing some of the typical animals from Peru that are hard to see in the wild: condors, coatis, vicunas, guanacos, parrots, different kinds of monkeys... It was also very interesting to see how Andean women color the alpaca wool with different natural...More

Part of me wants to believe these animals really are better off having been rescued, but you wouldn't necessarily know it from their surroundings - no space to run, swing, fly, no privacy for them. it was at first amazing to see what animals you...More

They run completely on donation and as Kieth mentioned they do have a sight seeing bus of their own, I have a couple of e-mail addresses and phone numbers but can not post them here, if you would like them just message me.
