Incredible animal sanctuary caring for animals that have been rescued from trafficking, illegal pet ownership, abandonment and some who are suffering from ailments that prevent them from survival in the wild. Tour was short (less than an hour) but thorough with tons of information and our guide was fantastic. Super beautiful shops too with proceeds that go back to funding for the sanctuary. The condor flight was jaw-droppingly cool as well as learning about their rehab & release program. Definitely worth the trip if you are in Cusco!

Our flight was pushed to an earlier time so our original excursion had to be cancelled. I found this sanctuary and booked the tickets immediately. Loved the tour! I run an animal shelter in the US and I was excited to see the great work the sanctuary is doing.

amazing place that truly helps the animals! I volunteered there 3 days while on my vacation and loved it so much! you get so much compassion and want to help prevent the situations these animals were rescued from. from a volunteers perspective though, it could be more organized. for example, a chart of what and how much each animal eats would make things a lot more efficient.

This place takes care of some wild animals like condor and pumas, We thrust on their work but seems that is a very small space for those animals.

there are some very nice llamas and alpacas, the people who works here is very nice.

Wonderful place ideal to go with the family, it is a kind of mini zoo of llamas and alpacas, on visits to the place there is a local guide who explains to you about the upbringing and the destination of its precious wool.

Albert and the sanctuary staff are doing great work providing for rescued animals and where possible releasing them back into the wild. The sanctuary is small and privately funded - they clearly feel a passion for their valuable work and share that passion with their visitors. Animal lovers and those interested in Peruvian animals will greatly enjoy this experience.

I really enjoyed the sanctuary, it was beyond what I expected. The guide Alberto was wonderful in telling me about the sanctuary - the history, the animals and their care and rescue and release plans. This was the perfect last experience before leaving Cusco. My favorite was seeing the condor in flight!

This was such an unexpected surprise. We did it on a whim. We visited the sanctuary with Alberto, who was knowledgeable, courteous and really fun! The rescue work that they are doing there is incredible. From feeding Llamas, Alpacas, monkeys and birds to having Condors land within a foot of our heads, this was an amazing and unforgettable day. Well worth it!

Special, up-close experience with local animals and a private tour guide. Our guide, Albert, did an amazing job explaining everything to us, and he was extremely patient, giving us plenty of time to feed and interact with the animals. The front door pick-up service also made the entire visit that much easier, and our driver, Jhoao, was very friendly and had an immaculately clean car. Would highly recommended this to anyone visiting in the area, especially those with kids or teens.

This small sanctuary is a labor of love and it shows. The animals are well cared for and it was nice to be able to come close to them.
