Part of me wants to believe these animals really are better off having been rescued, but you wouldn't necessarily know it from their surroundings - no space to run, swing, fly, no privacy for them. it was at first amazing to see what animals you...More

This is a interesting place to see the local animals - llamas, condors, and their little bears. It was nice to see and support and organization that is providing some animal rehabilitation in this country. The tour itself was rather short - about 30-40 minutes....More

Great place to see the local animals. The animals are huge and we were able to feed them. Some of the animals were so funny, it seemed like they liked posing for pictures. The animals also seemed happy. Good short stop.

Really great work and a unique opportunity to visit up close as the animals are being rehabilitated. Very close to cusco. A photographers dream, great with families with kids

We stopped there on our way back from Pisac, and we are glad we did! It is a nice sanctuary where they take good care of their animals. The little information center is also interesting. We had quite a lot of fun feeding the alpacas...More

This proved to be a highlight for my kids in the Sacred Valley. We had an opportunity to see and understand several unique animals - spectacle bears, guanaco, puma, and condors. In the case of the condors, we all very much enjoyed being able to...More

We were terrified this would be a sad roadside zoo but it's a legitimate rescue operation with dedicated staff. It is small but they are helping out Andean wildcats, condors and assorted other animals. Their craft store is terrific.

They run completely on donation and as Kieth mentioned they do have a sight seeing bus of their own, I have a couple of e-mail addresses and phone numbers but can not post them here, if you would like them just message me.

I don't know the hours for the animal sanctuary, but it might help you to know there is another good site to visit that's extremely close (a little farther up the road from Cuzco). I don't know its name, but it's like a... More

Yes, it's close to both Cusco and Pisac, an hour. The llama preserve is across the street. The Cch. Sanctuary has vicunas, alpacas and llamas but the condors highlight the visit, especially if you arrange a flying... More
