We paid USD 30 for 2 adults and 2 kids, which included 3 small bags of sliced carrots and animal feed that the kids could feed the animals. (You're not allowed to feed any of the... More

Part of our UTV tour was to stop at Philips Animal Garden (Rescue) for exotic animals that where rescued along with some unexpected animals as well. The money that it gets from tours like this makes it even more worth while as these men and woman work hard to keep these animals housed and well taken care of. Have not... More

Jayne M, Thank you your kind review for our all animal rescue sanctuary Philips Animal Garden. You are correct in pointing out that approx. 40% of your purchase price for an off road adventure tour with Around Aruba Tours goes to help us fund our ongoing rescue mission and caring for all of our rescued residents.

Philip's Animal Garden is an animal rescue zoo. The cages are clean and the animals appear to be very well looked after. I would recommend visiting the animal garden to anyone. Look out of the howler monkey though - he will steal your sunglasses :)

Jeff L, Thanks' for visiting with us here at Philips Animal Garden and for your nice review for our all animal rescue habitat. Korra, the Howler monkey is a little scamp at times, but he so loves to have his back rubbed that we kind of forgive him when he acquires a new set of sunglasses or a hair clip... More

Philips place was cheap to get into an very rewarding if you love animals. From Howling monkeys, to camel, goats, horse and ostriches and ocelots was really cool. If you don't like the smells of animals or are not an animal lover this is not for you but the facilities are fairly clean and a great place to see lots... More

Jim D, Thank you for visiting Philips Animal Garden and for your nice review. You mentioned my little friend, the Howler Monkey, his name is Korra (Red), and he is a hoot, loves getting his neck and shoulders massaged. His life before being rescued was one spent in a tiny cage, 3' x 3' for close to five years, he... More

Since I've been feeding the Donkeys every day at the Sanctuary it was my wish to go up to the Animal Rescue Garden. The price is $10 US, you are given carrots and kibble to feed the animals, you can also bring your own carrots and apples. They have goats, 2 camels, deer, many species of birds, a few reptiles,...

I was a bit taken back when my daughter said she wanted to come here, but it was quite fun, they had a lot of animals and when they say don't feed the monkeys they really mean it, upon entry, they give each paying customer a bag of food for the animals and when we approach the monkeys, we got...
