What travellers are saying
- This is our second time visiting the Sanctuary. Whenever I am in this area I will return again. If your an animal lover of any kind, you will leave in awe of the work and care of these animals as well as the sanctuary itself. Located on 6,000 acres in Angles Canyon. There are free tours to see animals. The cafe on site serves an amazing all you can eat buffet for only $5., and is all made fresh daily. The views are amazing and be assured that no animal if not adopted, lives a luxurious life for the rest of it's life. Although it may be a bit sad within the Sanctuary there is Angles Rest, a pets final resting place filled with many memorials and hundreds of wind chimes that is so serine. This is where anybody can have their pets ashes immortalized for eternity. You can self tour and hike the many trails within the sanctuary. Don't leave this off your itinerary.Written September 12, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We loved our day visiting Coyote Buttes South. More than impressed with Dreamland Tours both in terms of the support on helping us to plan this day and our excellent guide Tiffany. I had been a little nervous about the journey there having read reviews ‘very bumpy roads’. It may be off road but we felt extremely safe with Tiffany as our guide. Careful, steady and always checking we were ok. The experience of being part of a small group in this stunning area is hard to describe. The peace, ability to explore at our own pace and enjoy the vistas that we found at every turn. Tiffany enabled us all to proceed safely and to appreciate this special place. Thanks Dreamland for an unforgettable day.Written August 18, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- It was hot and climbing up the hills is no small task for the kids. Expect some tears. But the sledding was fun and we are glad we made the stop. Everyone there was helpful.Written July 17, 2023
- Both the wire-pass and Buckskin gulch are epic as far as scenery, being photogenic, and great adventures. The road to get here is rough, dusty, long, washed out, bumpy, and generally awful, but once you get to the terminus it's great. I don't know what Lydia is talking about. The pass to hike this section is $6 per person, and managed by the state of Utah. Passes are bought online the day before your hike. It is a 1.7 (fitness tracker/apple watch) mile hike to get to the actual canyon, and 1.7 miles to get back to your car in Utah 100 degree sun, so plan accordingly. You are realistically going to log between 5-6 miles on this hike, but it doesn't seem like it because there is something beautiful around every corner. We saw several Tarantula hawks (bee like insects) flying in the canyon. It is the second most painful sting known to man-- were you to get stung-- leave them alone and don't slap at them and you'll be fine. There are a couple of obstacles requiring a bit of a scramble in wire-pass but the average person should have no problems getting over/under them.Written June 27, 2023
- We had a fabulous tour today with Coral Cliffs Tours. It took about three hours which included a fun off road ride to the base of Peek-A-Boo Slot Canyon. Our guide, JT was informative and even helped us with our photo techniques. He showed us interesting geologic formations and historic evidence in the canyon. He also took great pictures of us when asked.
We had time when we finished so he included a tour of the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. It was a great morning that I would highly recommend!Written September 15, 2023
- A very pretty drive! The dirt road is quite decent, when it's dry. The colorful striped mountains and nice rock formations are very photogenic. It's free and doesn't take long, definitely is worth the experience!Written September 29, 2023
- The history and craftsmanship of the home is amazing, truly a must see while in Kanab. The Guide was passionate about the history so it made the experience even better!Written September 2, 2023
- Not being sure of what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. The interesting geology and the incredible colors was cause for many stops for pictures. Well worth the time to meander down the roadWritten June 10, 2021
- Scenic road and MUCH better shape than Notom Road. High clearance two wheel could manage this if not wet. We started at Cannonville, took the side road to Grosvenor Arch then on to HWY 89 to Kanab. Stopped at Cottonwood Narrows to walk the slot canyon.Written June 14, 2023
- Definitely visit the visitor's center. The two men that volunteer there are very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and what is a must-see when you visit Kanab, UT.Written July 8, 2023
- It takes about 10 mins to see the whole place. Has an interesting back story but there is not much there unless you are into rocks. They charge to enter it’s too much for what you get. Needs to be significantly less.Written July 16, 2023
- We could access this trail directly from our airbnb. We didn't encounter another hiker in our two hours on the trails. Found an old Indian metate and saw wonderful flora and fauna.Written June 8, 2023
- There are lots of handouts on places of interest in the Kanab area but it is difficult getting any additional information from the staff who seem to be a bit disinterested, so help yourself to the printed Information available.Written April 26, 2023
- Stopped here while on a bus trip. They took us in where we were to eat. Next thing I know, they’re picking us for parts in a “movie”. Everyone participated in a 3 minute movie that they showed us at the end of the meal.
Our meal consisted of salad, a roll, beans, potatoes and roast beef. The meal was mediocre. Too much pepper in the potatoes and the beans were spicy. Very small dessert. Meal came with hot tea, coffee or water. Iced tea and soft drinks were extra.
The movie was funny to watch and they sold them for $20. Group photos were $10.
As others have stated, the “set” also known as the museum needs updating. Very worn down.
I guess if you’re an old western movie lover, you might like to see it. Otherwise, I’d skip it.
They have a large gift shop and average gift shop prices.
I’m not sure what our tour company paid for this, but it wasn’t worth it. This was my least favorite thing we’ve done on the trip so far.Written September 5, 2023
