Absolutely a must. We tend to travel for our own benefit and luxury and forget to thank, in the many ways possible, the community that welcomes us in open arms. High recommended and for a good cause.
We visited Antigua in February and drove by a sign advertising the Donkey Sanctuary. We just had to find the sanctuary. Roads are not well marked in Antigua after the last hurricane. We saw the sign along the road between St. Johns and Jolly Harbor. Don't get fooled like we did. Thought the sanctuary was near the sign but upon... 更多
If you love donkeys this is well worth a visit. You get a very good and helpful guide (we had Vincent) and the opportunity to brush the lovely gentle donkeys. I would recommend wearing closed shoes as the friendly donkeys can step on your toes! It is free but they welcome donations and, if you want, you can adopt a... 更多
All the donkey's in the corral were docile and loved being petted. If you have children then obviously its wise to keep them supervised but all the animals were human friendly. This sanctuary is well run by the Humane Society. It is well off the beaten track in a rural part of eastern Antigua. Though the entrance is well marked,... 更多
Thank you so much for visiting and your kind review. Hope we'll see you again! 更多
It was lovely to come back and see my adopted donkeys. They were looking good and it was feeding time so didn't rush them this time. Steve the blind one was wondering around and enjoyed getting lots of attention. There carers do a great job looking after so many. Good job there is a place like this that looks after... 更多
Glad you were able to come back and visit us. As you know, the donkeys love to receive visitors, especially... 更多
We did not know we were coming to see the donkeys while on our island tour. I am grateful that they take care of the donkeys on the island as they are not longer needed as the once were. The sanctuary runs on donations with little government support which is I'm sure most excursions bring you by. If you enjoy... 更多
Thanks for your support! 更多
This sanctuary is well-run by the Humane Society. It's well-off the beaten track in a rural part of eastern Antigua.Though the entrance is well marked, the road leading to the gate is rough and difficult for passenger cars. My rented sedan couldn't make it over the gate threshold, so we parked on the dirt road and walked back to the... 更多
A big thank you from Ushi! Our cat, Deputy, has no fear and loves to entertain visitors with his antics.... 更多
We visited the donkey santuary based on reviews. It was a wonderful experience, we had a blast meeting them. I adopted July, she followed me everywhere I went and wrapped her head around my waist like a hug. Well worth the trip, so glad we found it.
We're glad you found us too. And so is July! Many thanks for your support. 更多
My wife and i arrived here not knowing what to expect, so imagine our delight when we where warmly welcomed (even by the dog!) and then given a brush and asked if we would like to go into the main paddock and say 'hello' to the donkeys! Apparently brushing a donkey is like giving them a massage and true to... 更多
Thanks for your kind review. So glad you found us. You are absolutely right, the "official" map has us located... 更多
