Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Founded in 2001 by Mario and Maria Tabraue, this private zoo, preservation and conversation facility for rescued and endangered animals is home to about 150 different primates, exotic species, predatory birds and mammals. Large organizations and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service send animals in need of extra care to the ZWF, where they’re rehabilitated and domesticated to thrive in controlled environments. To date, the facility has rescued 15 South African lions and helped a number of animals escape harmful conditions—such as Lola the vulture, whose talons were amputated due to frostbite before arriving at the facility. For more one-on-one interaction, guests can book interactive animal encounters for an additional cost and spend time holding, cuddling and learning about these remarkable creatures.
