A very good way to come close to regional animals. The Lamas/ Alpacas are very friendly and will let you pet them for the time of a picture. Our guide rushed the visit to a point that is almost a lack of respect but we...More

OK, it's a touch on the zoo side, but it's pretty difficult to get a good look at condor in Peru & this just fits the bill. Sure, pet the alpaca and sheep, look at the other guys they've rescued, but sit & wait for...More

Stopped by this animal sanctuary on our recent travels. Very similar to a small zoo but as they say the animals were all rescued from one place or another. Saw some unusual animals such as spectacle bear and condors. You could pet the lamas and...More

First of all.. you do NOT have to pay 35 soles for the organised tour. Take a Collectivo towards Pisac (from Cusco, or vice versa) its 3 soles each way, ask the driver to stop at the sanctuary and he will drop you right outside...More

We went there as part of a tour that left from the plaza. It was very cheap and worth it since there is an entrance fee to the sanctuary. The tour included transportation, the entrance fee, and a couple of other stops... 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.
