Visited the preserve with our daughter and her family (6 adults & 2 children under 7). We all enjoyed the 1.5 hour tour. Beautiful zebras, kudu, and giraffes. Lots of great photo ops, so don't forget a camera.

I made out with a gorgeous 20-foot giraffe! So did my husband. We both fell in love. The preserve is filled with integrity, care, wild acreage and beautiful, healthy animals. We loved every moment of being there. How amazing to be so near such powerful and majestic creatures. We are grateful to the owners for creating and maintaining such an... More

Three of us spent time at the afternoon feeding at this charming spot on the Northern California Coast. We enjoyed it all, from the 10 day old baby zebra, to the aggressive Elvis (one of 3 zebra types here) - to infant Sable & Roan antelopes, to 5 very charming male giraffes. A wonderful afternoon spent with a great guide!... More

If you've always wanted to see zebras, antelope, and giraffes up close and couldn't afford a trip to Africa, this is the place! The tour guides know what they're talking about and can answer any questions you have about the three species of zebras, three species of antelope, and, of course, their charming ambassadors, the giraffes. I had expected to... More

My daughter and I recently visited over the Labor Day weekend and it was a great experience we will keep with us for a lifetime. The interaction they offer with the giraffe's is incredible! That's really the highlight- feeding and receiving a giraffe kiss. Aside from that they also let you inside the zebra fencing and it's great to see... More
