We enjoyed the seals being fed, and my son loved watching them play. The squirrel monkeys had a baby and we stood for ages watching them, overall was a lovely day and would visit again.

After our visit I would not recommend this place I found to be expensive not well kept and very unclean I am all for animals being looked after but felt that they were not.

We was very disappointed to see so much plastic / straws etc being sold in the cafe. Considering it a rescue centre for wildlife.

No dogs allowed in the sanctuary it's self but I believe they have very good kennel facility by the reception area for visitors dogs. Hope this helps. Best thing would be to give them a call before visiting.
