Garden Route Wolf Sanctuary reviews
We enjoyed our experience. We didn't expect wolves to be so playful and energetic. We would advise going the morning as they get tired later in the afternoon and may not be as interactive. more »
I loved it there, i really would go back. That staff were friendly and the animals are very well looked after. They give donated teddies to the dogs to "kill" it so if you have any to donate please... more »
I last visited this venue with my husband 8 years ago. Now I returned with my two young children. Day was very hot so the wild dogs and wolves hid in the shade in the thicket. But I have seen huge changes in the last few years. There is a large and wonderful farmyard set up with a huge array of animals now. Kids could feed the animals with food from the reception area. There are also guides who are available to take you on a very informative excursion. There is a simple novelty shop- pretty expensive and a simple outdoors decked restaurant. It serves very basic but cheap meals. Entry to the venue is very affordable. In the end I don't mind paying for the sake of maintaining the animals. A number of the animals have been rescued situations. Kids enjoyed the morning there .
Well worth the R100 entry fee. The wolves are absolutely beautiful. There is a petting zoo at the back. Entrance comes with a complimentary bag of animal feed to give to the various animals there. The place is well kept and staff are very friendly. There is a small kitchen so you can have a bite to eat while you drink a cool drink. Quite an experience.
