We have a 13 year old daughter and she had a great time. The animals come up closely and the driver had a lot of knowledge of he animals. She is a biologist, not just someone memorizing her line.

It was a great experience. I love the fact that we were not overrun with people. Emily our guide was excellent and so informative. I saw animals I've never seen before . We also took advantage of the 10 minute camel ride; my 15-year-old grandson and me his 76-year-old grandmother. I would come back again to see what animals we... More

Took my wife for her 60th birthday. It was just the two of us with Emily our guide and Art the camel handler. over 2 hours of a private expedition riding camels and seeing exotic wildlife. It was the best day ever said my wife! Highly recommend this experience!

Our kids loved it and so did we. Not something you see everyday. I highly recommend this. A lot less chaos than Disney.
