“Pet a sloth!”
Safari Edventure is a non-profit organization located in S.W. Miami-Dade County, Florida. Our staff, (made up mostly of volunteers), has been providing quality, hands-on environmental presentations for over 35 years. We care for over 50 species of exotic animals with over 200 animals on display each day on our 5 acre facility. Most of our animals have come to us as either rescues, or re-homes. We also have several animals that have been born at our facility from parents that were brought to us as rescues or re-homes. We offer Curriculum Based School Presentations as well as fun Wildlife Presentations for Parties and Events, and Displays at Public or Corporate Functions, or just visit us for the day. We also offer exciting Day Camps with hands-on wildlife encounters, as well as fun environmental games and activities. When you visit us you can.....Hug a Kangaroo, Hold an Alligator, Play with Wolves, Pet a Sloth, and more! You will get a close up experience with over 50 species of wildlife from 5 continents including Kangaroos, Anteaters, Sloths, Lemurs, Fox, Monkeys, Fruit Bats, Armadillos, Alligators, Porcupines, Emus, Arctic Wolves, and much more. Join us for the Kangaroo & Wolf Encounters, and participate in one of our hands-on wildlife presentations with 15-18 animals. Presentations are offered several times each day. Encounters are available throughout the day. Our five beautiful acres are filled with over 100 mature native and exotic trees that provide lots of shade and interesting, interactive learning experiences. You will have the opportunity to visit the enchanting sunken rainforest garden, as well as our butterfly and hummingbird gardens. You can also explore our organic garden with herbs, spices and other intriguing plants in our candy, drinks, spices, vegetable, medicinal, and pizza sections. All of this is included in our regular admission price. We hope to see you soon. Few experiences touch the heart and mind like a personal encounter with one of nature’s fascinating creatures. The resonance of a positive experience like this can last a lifetime. When you visit us, we do have a few snacks & drinks available, however, you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch. Please take note of the following items that are not allowed. Juice pouches & juice boxes with small straws. Lollipops. Also, please note that our entire facility is smoke free.
If you're looking for a non-profit animal refuge, where you can not only get the chance to interact and learn about 50 different exotic wildlife, but you get to pet a sloth, look no further!
Safari Edventure is home to tons of well cared for, rehabilitated and rescued animals, and is an education facility that teaches both children and adults about the importance of caring for the animal kingdom. They have been functioning for 38 years doing what they do best, teaching us about the importance of animal conservation.
The cost to enter is very low, and every cent goes towards feeding, taking care of, and keeping the animals happy, healthy, and safe. If you're interested they are always looking for volunteers, or donations... plus, you'll get to pet all the sloths you want!
this was quite the experience! highly recommend it. we got the interact with animals i never thought i’d have a chance to meet! and, yes, these animals are rescues.
just a small note if you do go, while this was not the case in the majority of animals, there were a few that were clearly showing signs of distress - overgrooming and, in particular, a raccoon was pacing unlike anything ive ever seen before back and forth in his cage. however, it was very clear that the people running it cared about animals and wanted to do right by them, but was more about a lack of information.
We visited Safari Edventure in August 2015 and had a blast! You can feed the lemurs and go in a cage with Wolves and kangaroos. It was incredibly clean and the animals were well taken care of. Make sure to stay for the show where you can hold/pet snakes and tarantulas (if you're into that sort of thing...) and a hedgehog and a sloth and many more animals! The show is the best part. We really recommend going here! All the money goes towards care and upkeep of the rescued animals.
