Website and recorded message implied place was open. We drove all the way from Miami and the place is ***PERMANENTLY CLOSED*** with an eviction notice on the front gate. Shame that the attraction did not mention this on its website or recorded message. There were several other families that also arrived around the same time only to find out they had wasted a trip.

Just wanted to let people know that we showed up on Saturday morning March 20, 2021 and Safari EdVentures was closed. The worker at the gate said it was just recently purchased and signs on the fence said permanently closed. We headed to ZWF which was 18 min away and amazing.

Spend approximately 2hrs there, we opted for the private tour and had an absolute blast.
Our guide - Angie was very friendly, professional, funny and knowledgeable. She made our last adventure in Miami an unforgettable one. Thank you ANGIE!

Fun experience!
Feb 2021 • Couples
The tour was super informative and it was so fun to interact with some of the animals so closely. Many different types of animals to see. Only negative feedback is the cages didn’t seem well kept - seemed very small and some falling apart. Made us wonder about the animals’ quality of life. Would definitely recommend, though, for a fun time for any animal lover!

This place is awesome and well cared for.
Jan 2021 • Family
This place is small yes but makes it special. We spent 4 hours here. We walked it twice. Best - was not crowded. Juan works there and takes you on animal up close encounters. We saw a sloth, wolf, and alligator!
Sure it isn't pristine. They aren't there to take time away from animals and always manicure their the grounds to look all fancy like the well known zoos. This is supposed to mimic the natural overgrown environment the best it can. Price is not bad at all for up close and limited crowd. You pay $10-$15 just to see a sloth at some zoos and it is often sleeping.
There are so many things to see here if you explore and look. Insects, birds, and amazing iguana coming out of the trees and bushes.
I'm glad we came here.

Hidden Gem
Dec 2020
This was truly an AMAZING experience. I will say, it is small, but that's the true beauty of it. It is so personal and intimate.

My husband and I traveled with our 8 yr old and grandfather, We opted for the private tour, mainly to give our daughter some quality time with her favorite animal, the sloth. I'm so glad we did! Carlos was our guide and was so patient with our very timid girl. Feeding and being so close to those animals was such a treat! O'Ryan the wolf was by far the family favorite, followed by Arthur the sloth. The caregivers truly care about the animals, and work hard to make sure they are well cared for. Our tour was about an hour, which was plenty of time. And after we took another round through to revisit everyone. I truly cannot say enough positive things about this hidden gem!

The place a little off the beaten path, but still only an hour from Miami...so it makes for a great half day adventure. I'd go back in a heartbeat just to see the big smile on my girl's face! THANK YOU for an amazing time

GREAT Animal Interaction Experience
Sep 2020 • Friends
Visited with a friend for her birthday and had a great time! The animals are well kept, the guide (I believe his name was Juan) was super knowledgeable about all of the animals there, and the interactions were super fun!

Thanks... Made my daughter cry
Jun 2020 • Family
My daughter LOVES sloths. We drove all the way down there since every site, including theirs, indicated they were open. We arrived and saw the sign that said they were open. But, no, they aren't. Ruined our day, made my daughter cry. You should be ashamed of yourself! Since I can't swear, you all are JERKS!!!!

Absolutely AMAZING
Jun 2020 • Family
We drive to the Fl Keys every year...on the way down this year I googled things to do around Homestead and Safari Edventure came up. I quickly looked at the website and saw the “ITS” tour (which is like a private interactive tour) and I called and the kindest lady was able to book us a reservation for immediate arrival.

Upon arrival the space was clean and organized and the lady who greeted us was super friendly. Our guide Carlos was absolutely the BEST! He was super friendly and knowledgeable. We were not rushed in the least and got plenty of one on one time with each of the animals.

My 7 yr old, 12 yr old and 14 year old as well as all adults in the group had a great time and everyone stayed actively engaged. I would highly recommend this tour for families of all ages. The foxes, wolves and porcupine were group favorites!

This was absolutely the best $55pp I have spent for entertainment. I highly recommend.
