The trip through the park lasts about two hours and affords lots of opportunity to get close up to the animals. There are rest rooms, a restaurant, and souvenir shop onsite. Other activities on site include... More

We stopped. Y here on our way back to the resort we were staying at. It was an awesome experience to be able to hand feed the animals they have in this park. First time I can say I got to pet a zebra, ostrich, a camel and a giraffe. Highly recommend especially for families with kids and younger kids.... More

The Africa Safari was just a short 40 minute bus ride form our Riu Palace resort in Sardinal Costa Rica and the tour was reasonably priced! Our bus picked us up in the morning and had us back for supper time. The tour included a tour through the jungle, and you get your choice of 2 activities out of: zipline,... More

You would NEVER expect this place to exist and be so wonderful! We had a gas and saw all sorts of animals and got to drive in to the Giraffe area! A must do!

The safari is something you can't experience anywhere else in CR. The other tours were awesome as well, the staff is one of the best I've met in CR. Remark on the couple of guys leading the rafting tour.

You can feed giraffes carrots! Otherwise the selection of wildlife is limited compared to US zoos, and one questions if its worth the price. The customer service was excellent and so was the food.

Loved being able to be so close and touch zebras and giraffes. I had their buffet lunch which was really good. Canopy was good but wished there was more safety at the platforms since at times you aren't hooked to the main line. Kayaking was fine, sadly the river wasn't full enough but still a great experience. The place is... More
