Being around animals is very exciting for those who like it. However the animals need their routine and require some knowledge on how to handle them. You are free to approach them and interact with them as much as you wish or just stay away from then and just watch and let the staff taking care of them. If you elect to interact with them it is paramount that you respect basics rules which will be presented to you when you check in. This is for your safety and comfort but also for the animals comfort as well. Animals can become very stressed when their routine is upset or if their environment gets messy. The property has an insurance against accidents that could happen. If the recommendations that are presented to you are thoroughly followed no accident should happen, our animals are very peaceful and used to human contacts.
