I can not believe this place is allowed to be open let alone have animals. The condition of the cages and enclosures were deplorable. It looks as if they haven't been cleaned in months. I have been to many rehabilitation and sanctuaries for animals and I have never seen anything this bad. The water the alligators are in is completely... More

We visited on Mother's Day. Had the first "ITS tour" at 10am. I was blown away! Chris was our personal guide to the animals, he was full of information and helped us hold, touch pet tons of animals. We started with the wolves, they are so fabulous. I could not believe how sweet they were, and the large black male... More

Tickets are very affordable. Great place to come to get closer interactions with animals than you would at the local zoo. The safari has a very unique variety of animals! Also the staff is very informative of all the animals shown during presentation.

We chose this over a typical zoo because it offered a private tour where we could all hold and feed some of the animals. The kids loved it. We would definitely recommend.

My husband and I stopped during a recent trip to Miami, and we really enjoyed this place. We didn't want to go to the zoo because we didn't want to deal with large crowds. This was wonderful (and even better!) alternative. The animals were well taken care of and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be visiting again.

Very nice place to visit. We got to pet many cute animals including a sloth, kangaroo, and wolf. If you plan to visit, make sure you come during a show to pet animals.

I like that it was not a huge zoo. All of their animals were either rescued or rehomed there. It was nice and very out of the way. The price was good for admission. But they really need more money in donations, as they need to work on the fencing. I know that they are volunteers, but the really need... More

Safari Edventure was very enjoyable. One in our group of 4 were able to hold the sloth, a little disappointing but okay. Touched and fed the prehensile tailed porcupines, fed the alligators (awesome - the way they come up to get fed it almost, almost makes you forget you cannot pet them), Got in the pen with the arctic wolves...
