  • An educational and incredible way to get up close and personal with animals you'd never expect to see up close. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and attentive to your group as you see lions, tigers, various birds and other animals up close and in some cases in your hands. Their mission is very admirable and you will not be disappointed by the trip into the Acreage to see the sanctuary. There's a reason they're one of the number one things to do in the Palm Beaches.
  • I love what they do here. Everyone is passionate about the animals and take good care of them. The only thing I felt was lacking was more time to actually see the animals. We moved so quickly passed each animal, that it was hard to truly appreciate them.
