We stopped at the Preserve on our way north from San Francisco. I am so thankful my daughter requested we do so. It was fun, educational and a unique experience. We will remember this part of our trip for years.

The tour person was very knowledgeable about the animals in the preserve. A wonderful place to take children on the Mendocino Coast to see African animals up close.
