Where are we going today?

The Spirit of the Hills Wildlife Sanctuary is a rescue and rehabilitation facility welcoming visitors to meet and and learn about over 360 animals covering 40 different species who have found a safe home here.

An extensive animal observation experience, there are additional walking tours and educational demonstrations to get the most out of it. Guided tours are up to 2 hours long so best to go early with smalls to keep them out of the worst heat, but bear in mind that strollers are not permitted.

And without this sanctuary they'd face a terrible fate. With more visitors and donations...Read More

Stop by and visit, we're so glad we did.
