Yuma's Camel Farm It's one of world's least likely places to look for exotic animals. But there it is. Yuma, Arizona, has a camel farm. More than 250 animals are housed in this eccentric farm with over 30 species happily co-existing. The unusual setting is...More

I would not under any circumstances recommend this attraction to anyone. Those poor animals are merely living their days out til slaughter or a cruel death. There is no stimulation for them,,the pens are tiny, the food was poor quality,some didn't have any water and...More

This review is one person's opinion. This person did not have the courtesy to speak to anyone here regarding his/her concerns. Most of the statements reflect a lack of basic knowledge. For example, we have 2 large Sulcata tortoises. These animals do not drink water;...More

We took our granddaughter here for her 8th. birthday. She loved it. The animals are great to see and fun to feed. She made "friends" with one of the animals. I highly recommend a trip here.

This is a good place to take children. Most of the animals can be touched and fed and there are quite a few very unusual ones. My grandchildren had fun seeing and feeding the different animals and hearing their sounds.

What an incredible place! I expected half a dozen camels, and boy was I wrong. This place is a hands-on zoo. It's gotta be Yuma's best kept secret, and I'm super excited about taking my fiancee and her twin boys out there the next time...More

Dress accordingly and take water. Yuma can get over 115 degrees in the summer months. It's a bit like a petting zoo. You can tell they love their animals, but some seem a bit lonely for they are by themselves. The people/owners are very friendly.
