Off the beaten track and quite hard to find, We arrived in the car park at 12.15pm in march and had no idea where to go! Walking towards a hut there was a sign on the door saying to phone a number-we did and a man came over and opened up the hut where we paid $5 each and had... More

This is a really fun place to visit. Not big so it doesn't take much time but it is well worth it. Some great birds and animals here to see and great place to take kids. Easy access and good parking. They are supporting a great cause.

This is a small refuge with about 10-12 different creatures. All the animals appeared well fed and cared for. It's located in a picturesque setting away from the hustle and bustle of International Drive and the parks.

Really good place to visit from Orlando it only takes 30 minutes to get to in car. You will only be there for 30 mins but well worth it as they are doing a good cause. Not many wild or exotic animals but thats not what this place is about. Be careful in the long grass as there are snakes.... More

We enjoyed a nice visit to Back to Nature where we got to meet all of their resident rescued animals. This is such a wonderful organization, and BTN's team's love for what they do is evidenced by the clean facilities, great enrichment opportunities for the animals, and staff who are ready to answer all of your questions about the animals...

My husband and I drove out to Lake Nona to do the Nature Walk on a Sunday afternoon. There wasn't much activity so we got to take our time and observe all of the animals, most of which were out and about despite the afternoon heat. We particularly enjoyed the lemurs but there was also a raccoon, arctic fox, tortoise,... More

I had taken some injured animals here and they do really care. This place is great and the people here really are amazing. Also, donating items for them that they can use for their rehabilitation area. I will recommend this place to anyone looking to have a great experience. Anyone who loves animals, will really enjoy this place.

Wonderful place with people who really believe in the welfare of animals. Even though it was 2pm with a real feel of 107° most of the animals were active and full of personality. We watched the artic fox hide bits of food around its enclosure, saw the great horned owl love being sprayed with a hose for her afternoon shower... More
