I cannot say enough incredible things about this gem! I was visiting the area from out of town and wanted to book an owl experience for myself. I saw that there was no availability for the only day I could make it out, so I called to inquire if they could accommodate me. Without any hesitation, they allowed me to come and have the most incredible experience. This was a bucket list experience for sure! All the women were knowledgeable and personable during my time there. The love they have for every animal is evident. All the animals are well cared for and lovely. I’m an educator, and they gave me the option to have a virtual experience for my class in the future, if available and allowed by my school. I appreciated that very much. Beatrix was my favorite to meet by far. This is a one of a kind place that every animal enthusiast needs to visit. I will highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique adventure 💚🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉

Great experience! Really enjoyed this outing. We did the Macaw Free Flight and Falcon Experience. The view from the top of the hill where the birds fly, looking out over the valley is really nice. Seeing the birds fly free is just beautiful. A few (wild) hawks showed up too! Really enjoyed the tour. The guides are knowledgeable and really seem to want their guests to have a good time and enjoy learning about their birds. The whole experience comes with a friendly, low key vibe - very enjoyable. After seeing the birds in flight, we each got to hold a macaw and a falcon, and then walked back down the hill and had the opportunity to meet and interact with a few of the other birds on the premises. They have burros, goats and an alligator too! All the birds and other animals look great and seem very happy. Lunch at the Lake Wohlford Cafe on the way home is worth a stop too.

Magnificent experience! I would recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in birds. Katie and Hillary are such knowledgeable teachers and know how to handle these awesome animals. I learned so much seeing these birds in action. Also being a perch these birds was something of a bucket list item for me. I’m grateful beyond words! I did the birds of prey experience, but it seems like any experience would be worth it! If you’re considering visiting this place, just do it!
