Jukani’s environmental message is clear and terribly important. We found it a heart-wrenching experience in many ways. It is such a privilege to see these endangered animals at all. In ten or so years it may not be possible as some of them are almost...More

We were blown away multiple times during our trip by the service from the staff. From the friendly staff at reception to the really passionate guide. Worth every cent of entry and really enjoyed the Tigers, lions and honey badger.

Was wary about seeing such animals in a limited area but it proved to be very good. All animals had been previously caged or ill treated. Very knowledgeable guide and the animals looked in excellent health in a comfortable environment. Get the joint ticket discount.

The tour group we went in was small and since we had small children with us the guide slowed the pace, with the result that our tour was longer than the scheduled time. The rest of our tour welcomed this since they had extra... More
