Such a wonderful experience. Schedule a tour. So much to see and learn especially if you love animals. And the story of the beginning of this sanctuary is wonderful!

Came here with my parents (I'm a 20 something they are 50 somethings). The park is small but we had a great time. You can see lots of animals. And there are tons of birds. It took us about an hour to see everything and we really enjoyed it

I have to say that the animals you see, are the animals that CAN'T be released to the wild which I found sad. They are protected in this nice facility. Thank goodness many other animals get released back to the wild. We saw a demonstration with reptiles which was very good and part of that demonstration, by Rebecca, explained the... More

Nice way to spend a cloudy and damp Florida vacation day. The volunteers were pleasant and helpful. The park is well maintained and organized. The animals are beautiful and it's an added bonus knowing they are going back to their natural habitats when they heal. This is a donation centered sanctuary, I'd rather donate generously to this than overpay to... More

Great place to spend an hour or so. Very well laid out with boardwalks and nature trails. This is a chance to see animals that have been rescued but are unable to return to the wild because of their injuries. No admission but donations are greatly appreciated

What an enjoyable walk through nature amongst God's creatures. The animals seem to be well cared for and thank goodness rescued from what may well have been a fatal outcome otherwise. Thank you for doing what you do. I hope as people visit this place and enjoy a day in nature, they remember to contribute in the 'donation' boxes along... More

If you want to learn about the wild critters that live in FL, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary does a great job. The place is clean, well run and informative. (Make sure you attend on of the free orientation sessions, the 20-30 minutes go by quickly.) The only not so pleasing part is when you go to the "lakes" on the wilderness... More

This place is a little small. You can tour all the various animals and birds in about 20 minutes. But if you time it right, they have an animal encounter presentation where you can get to know more about the animals and birds and snakes, etc. up close and personal. That is at 3pm each day I think and on... More

I've come here every year (at least once) while visiting for over 10 years. Such a cool place with or without kids. Its like a mini zoo but only local animals and VERY up-close.

Visited with a friend and 2 teenage girls. We loved seeing all the animals there that had been rescued. Some we got to learn about how/why they were there and wish they would post that info for every one. Interaction program was good but a little long, especially for little kids.
