My experience at the Philip’s Animal Garden
Apr 2021 • Friends
I had a wonderful time at Philip’s Animal Garden during my stay in Aruba. The tour included a chance to see and feed the beautiful animals that are housed there. Next was riding on the ATVs or in the UTVs(your preference) and going on a tour through the desert. They also provide you with a face covering that can cover your head completely, and you have the choice to purchase some goggles for $10! Or you can wear your own sun shades! On the tour itself you can stop along the way and take pictures of the beautiful scenery, and even grab a bite to eat if you get hungry. The last stop of the tour you have the choice to jump off the cliff into a very shallow body of water. (About 7ft deep) this was the highlight of my tour! I had amazing tour guides named JoJo and Robert! Both were very knowledgeable about the history of the area, funny and professional! I would go here again!

Cute, but needs work
Apr 2021 • Family
Although the en closures were a bit run down and sad looking, they held the necessities for the animals. They looked rather healthy too, for the most part. They had a wide variety of animals, and food to feed the animals came with the tickets. It’s a cute little place and if you like animals, it’s a definitely a must see. It’s $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under.

please help the animals
Apr 2021 • Family
some of the animals looked to be in good condition but others had no water, were in small cages, and looked starved. their were 4 ostrich’s stuck in a very small pen and 2 mini horses in a small concrete pen with no light. the monkeys were in the worst condition. a few monkeys in the back looked distressed and one looked starved. they had the tiniest cages and were pacing. the other monkeys looked extremely lonely and just sad.

Watch the crook at the front gate!
Apr 2021
Decent experience, but I strongly disliked the crook at the front gate who tried to add an additional $5 to the entrance fee for his own benefit! After he realized that we knew what the prices were supposed to be, he told us he would give us a "discount."

Lots and lots of goats! It was fun to get to feed the animals. I was hoping to get a tour or see someone talk about the animals, but during our visit for two hours or so, there wasn't any staff around.

Professional, clean, must see
Feb 2021 • Couples
This place is a must visit!! You donate a small entrance fee and you receive a bag of food to feed the animal. Devon at the front was amazing, he told us the history of the place and about each animal. He was so professional and made the experience so much better. Devon was so good I thought he was one of the owners!! The monkeys were the best part, they would hold our hand and interact with us. When we tried to leave they would yell for us to come back. The zoo was very clean and you can tell the animals are well cared for. Will be visiting everytime I’m on the island!

Well kept little "Zoo"
Mar 2021
Free entrance although they take donations to help run the facilities. It appeared that almost all areas were well maintained compared to other zoos we have visited. None of the food machines were in working order so we didn't get a chance to feed any of the animals. We only saw 1 worker during our 2 hours stay. May I suggest setting up an option to have volunteers help during their visit to feed/water animals? Quite a variety of animals & lots of shade options to get out of the sun.

Great time
Mar 2021 • Couples
For all the reviews criticizing this rescue, be realistic. It is a RESCUE not a 5 star zoo. These animals are being given an opportunity to survive and you are being given an opportunity to interact and feed them (give them lots of head scratches!) it can be hot so dress accordingly and bring water. Admission gives you a bag of feed. I noticed guinea pigs (bring them lettuce! I am a proud guinea pig mom back home) enjoy your time and get to know the wildlife of Aruba. All entry fees go to running the establishment and taking care of the animals, so is ten dollars really that much? We will be back!

Nice place
Jan 2021
We went here to visit the animals and had a great time. They give you food to feed most animals and tell you not to feed some. It was nicely set up and we enjoyed this adventure very much. A great place to walk around and just take in the sights.

Tons of animals!

Fantastic place with a lot of different animals. Like everything in Aruba, it is not terribly far from the main areas. Great place to take children whilst in Aruba.
