We did the ITS tour in the busiest week - Christmas time. The staff was great and informative and quite patient. We truly had "hands on" experiences and got to touch and learn about several animals.

My experience at Safari Edventure greatly surpassed any expectations I had of the visit. I highly recommend purchasing the VIP pass. Holding and feeding the baby sloth Myrlyn is an experience I will never ever forget! With this pass, we were also able to pet wolves, feed alligators, foxes, piglets and various farm animals. The staff were beyond kind and... More

Best place ever! I got to pet a Kangaroo, an Artic and Timber Wolf, Python, and a Sloth. There were many other animals but too many to list. The price is unbeatable. I've also been to the Miami zoo and Jungle Island. Come here instead! Every other place will charge you $$$ for additional encounters. I find this a bit... More

Amazing few hours with my family of 6 (my parents, my kids - 10 & 12, and my hubby). I booked the "behind the scenes" tour and would do it again in a heartbeat. Our guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Getting to experience the animals up close and personal with just the 6 of us is something my children will... More

I've lived in South Florida for over 40 years and never knew about this little treasure. My in laws took us just recently and let me tell you. I felt like a little kid again. It's not a huge place, but it's a great place for up close interaction with wild animals. I had so much fun I forgot to... More

This place was very nice to visit and it's wonderful what they do for the animals- they're all rescued. Wide variety of animals and you can get up close to them and go in the wolf cage and pet them, they are very friendly. You can pay $5 more to hold a baby sloth- it's so cute! The animal show...

Where else can you hold an alligator and a sloth and touch so many different animals? Hanging out with the wolves was also amazing. Our kids loved it too!

We really had a great time here. The show was really educational and fun. Pedro let you hold a spider, snake, alligator, and let you touch and pet many other wonderful animals. For an extra 5 bucks you can hold a baby sloth which is completely worth it. The wolves are incredible, the other animals on property are incredible, everything... More
