We visited today for a Wolf Walk. Not only were the wolves amazing but Daniel and Dee were a mine of information. They are so knowledgeable about everything connected to wolves. An excellent experience and well worth the trip from Scotland.

What a fabulous experience with two magnificent animals. The guides were so knowledgeable and provide top care for them. Naturally cautious animals, it was magical to be accepted into their pack.
