Really great trip. The staff clearly have the best interests of the animals at heart. Our guide Yary was fantastic and she had lots of information on all the rescued animals. The little monkey encounter at the end was adorable too. Highly recommended!

Unsere Guide Atziri war super! Man spürt wie sehr sie ihren Job und die Tiere liebt. Sie weiß zu allen Tieren interessante Informationen und kennt von allen die Hintergrundgeschichte. Wir freuen uns so eine tolle Sache unterstützt zu haben! Weiter so!!

Het was fantastisch om te zien hoe ze hun zo inzetten voor de diertjes. Wel vindt ik het spijtig dat iedereen zijn gsm moet afgeven op het moment dat we bij de aapjes binnen gaan, en dan geen mooie foto's mogen/kunnen maken. Je kan daarna wel de foto's kopen tegen hoge prijzen. De inkom is al duur genoeg, het is wel spijtig dat je dan zelf nog geen foto mag maken. Voor de rest mocht je wel overal foto's van nemen. De diertjes zitten er goed! is mooi om te zien
