March 2017. We were collected at the port by a great couple, and there was just my partner and I on this excursion, so we got to know them well. Driving through town, apparently the road signs are just suggestions for traffic behaviour, and that certainly seemed true!
The zoo was wonderful with many monkeys, birds, butterflies and other animals. One of the monkeys had given birth within the last 1-2 days and was carrying her baby. The highlight for me was the aviary and feeding the parrots and toucans. An animal behaviourist regularly visits the zoo and happened to be there on the day, so we got some insight into behaviours. After the zoo we were taken for lunch by the beach, and then back to the port.
The staff at the zoo clearly love their work. We were made to feel very welcome and we had a very special experience, very different from a normal commercial zoo. Highly recommended.

The Safarick Rescue rehabilitation zoo and beach was fantastic. The time we reserved was amazingly slow and my mother and I were the only 2 people in the facility. We got hands on attention feeding the monkeys, deer, and toucans!!! The butterfly exhibit was great!!! After the zoo, we were taken to a beach that was amazing. Very beautiful and relaxing. Lunch was included and boy was the food good and plentiful. Great weather, great people.... would highly recommend this tour!!!
