This was a great 2 1/2 hour excursion to finish our Cusco/Machu Picchu trip. We booked a private car with Jimmy scheduled with Condoropentours to just the animal rescue center. Our guide, Albert, was excellent! It is small, but you get up close with condors,...More

I enjoyed first hand interaction with the different types of cameloids. The animals are so used to humans that they feed right out of our hands. The sanctuary is very well kept by the care takers. The explanation of the different types of animals was...More

Great stop in Cusco. Awesome to see the animals and guides are very knowledgeable. They rescue animals and take very good care of them.

The website is accurate in what they write, but they leave out a few details--which I think should've been included to make the tour package more attractive! I booked the 12 USD (35 PEN) group tour with Incas Chacana agency located in Portal Comercio 181...More

It's difficult to see animals not in the wild but I believe they are doing a great job in taking care of these abandoned animals and it's worth learning about the native species. To see condors so close was something we probably cannot do anywhere...More

We had a great time at the reserve and enjoyed having a guide walk along with us and answer any questions. To future visitors I would say have an open mind and be flexible with transport. We took an uber from Cuzco for about 20...More

They have two mountain cats ( that look like bigger housecats ) in seperate cages, both all alone and they seemed very unhappy / bored. One was pacing back and forth. This is not good.

Loved the sanctuary!! Super cool to get to take a "llama selfie" and see bears, parrots, condors, and many other Peruvian animals. Tours in English and Spanish!

We stopped here on our private tour with Cusco Transport. It is a sanctuary for injured/abused Peruvian animals. The highlight was the condors. They are huge, and impressive when flying. Not a long or expensive stop (10 soles/pp) but worth it.

The sanctuary is about 30 minutes from the centre by car; the animals vary, of course, but you are probably sure to find llamas/vacunas, bald Peruvian dogs, condors, bears etc. It's not one of those sanctuaries where you get to interact much with the animals...More

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
