What a cool experience. 2 adults and kids ages 10,13,15 and we all enjoyed it. After a tour of the animals we loved that we got to participate in the food preparation and laying it out for the animals... more »
Amazing place! This is a must see in my opinion, very informative tour and a great way to see wildlife in a way that is not promoting animal trafficking. The family who runs Asis has since 1994 and is doing amazing work protecting animals. They deserve your support! We did the tour + volunteer and it was worth it. Helping to feed the resident animals is a lot of fun and a great way to interact with them in a safe and positive way. Go support this wonderful organization, you won't regret it!
We had such a wonderful experience volunteering here. They treat the animals very well and rehabilitate them as soon as possible. The entire team is passionate about wildlife and sustainability and the information I learned on this trip is priceless.
