Aruba isn’t just a paradise for beach lovers; our Caribbean Island is also a paradise for animal lovers! During your island exploration with Blue Aruba Rentals, you will be met with a wealth of local wildlife, from lizards to mountain goats. Aruba is also home to several animal sanctuaries where you get an up-close look at regional and wildlife from all over the world. From rescued exotic animals at Philips Animal Garden to insects from around the world at the Butterfly Farm, there is an animal experience for everyone!
Philip’s Animal Garden
Philip’s Animal Garden is a non-profit organization committed to rescuing and rehabilitating exotic animals around the region. See over 50 exotic animals, including jaguarundi, kangaroos, donkeys, goats, snakes, and many bird species. Join Around Aruba for a fantastic guided tour of the garden.
Visit the Butterfly Farm and witness hundreds of free-flying exotic butterflies from around the world. Imagine walking through a tropical rainforest setting amidst flowers, trees, ponds, and colorful butterflies flying around you. Your admission includes a guided tour of the farms, where you will learn about the life cycle of butterflies.
Aruba Ostrich Farm
Explore the Aruba Ostrich Farm with a knowledgeable tour guide. Get acquainted with over 80 ostriches and emus as you learn about mating, rearing, feeding habits, defense mechanisms, and more. After your tour, we encourage you to pick out a souvenir from the art shop or a bite to eat at the on-site restaurant.
Donkey Sanctuary Aruba
Donkey Sanctuary Aruba cares for over 130 abandoned or neglected donkeys, providing a safe haven for these unique animals. Get ready to make new friends at the sanctuary with these friendly donkeys that love pets and snacks (bring carrots and apples!)
Donate to the Aruban Donkey Program and help support the sanctuary! Your donation includes a 15-30 minute hug and cuddles with the donkeys; who could say no to that?
