We visited the park and took the Safari and Kayak tours. The Safari is quiet awesome for us, Costa Rican visitors, as we are not used to see those animals very often (our few zoos don't have them). We bought 4 bags of food for animals (recommended 2 per person) and the animals ate them all. We shared the Safari... More

You won't regret going. Pick a quieter time and buy LOADS OF CARROTS!!! So worth the extra money. We went there as a random act for a couple of hours and I want to go back again.

The trip through the park lasts about two hours and affords lots of opportunity to get close up to the animals. There are rest rooms, a restaurant, and souvenir shop onsite. Other activities on site include... More

We stopped. Y here on our way back to the resort we were staying at. It was an awesome experience to be able to hand feed the animals they have in this park. First time I can say I got to pet a zebra, ostrich, a camel and a giraffe. Highly recommend especially for families with kids and younger kids.... More

The Africa Safari was just a short 40 minute bus ride form our Riu Palace resort in Sardinal Costa Rica and the tour was reasonably priced! Our bus picked us up in the morning and had us back for supper time. The tour included a tour through the jungle, and you get your choice of 2 activities out of: zipline,... More

The safari is something you can't experience anywhere else in CR. The other tours were awesome as well, the staff is one of the best I've met in CR. Remark on the couple of guys leading the rafting tour.
