Great day with a great guide in a wonderful setting.

We enjoyed the tour of course! Our guide a man having been there for 10 years was so informative. We liked the experience and would recommend it to others.

The concept was great, but the execution a bit frightening. Let me first say, that our tour guide Robert was a real treat. Very amiable, knowledgeable and passionate about being a conservationist. The biggest area of opportunity, I would say, are the tour jeepsthey could stand to be upgraded with environmentally friendly and safer models. The vehicles not accessible for people with disabilities. And even able-bodied persons could potentially have trouble climbing in and out. There are no seat belts inside of the jeeps, no hand rails, nor guardrails to hold on to it's a safety disaster waiting to happen. Additionally, the exhaust fumes were bothersome. My advice, go for the experience, but bring a bandana to guard against the dust and diesel exhaust fumes. You may also want to have an alcoholic beverage or two from the gift shop to take your mind off the potential of falling out of the jeep and over the mountain into the man-made river.

Excellent tour and facility. Really enjoyed seeing the animals in their natural state. Our driver, who had been there for 10+years was very knowledgeable and informative. A great family activity.

This was such a wonderful treat and experience. The staff was so accommodating. I had an issue where I needed to reschedule my tour time. There was no problem, no hassle and they were able to get me on another tour. Then there was the animals. There are cheetahs and monkeys, birds, rhinos and giraffes and many more. You get up close and personal with our furry friends. John was our guide and we learned a lot. I haven't been this excited in a long time. Definitely bring the family, you will not regret it!

This tour is highly recommened although viator does not make it clear that you need to contact the ranch directly to confirm at least two days before the tour date. However it is well worth the money and a fantastic tour.

My entire family enjoyed the experience...10 and 13 year old grandsons!
