Our Dream Came True
Visit Our Beloved Paradise
Every Dream Has a Beginning
Our beloved shelter was created more than 15 years ago by a Swiss Family who chose Samaipata as their home. Their passion and huge responsibility for animals took them to build a beloved shelter for wild animals. This dream became a reality. Year after year, it’s growing slowly thanks to volunteers come from all around the world and their constant efforts. Together, we are a big family.
Our home is open to all nationalities and religions. We all live together in peace. It’s a place in the world where humans and animals live in complete harmony. Our major objective now is being able to reach sustainability. We understand this is not easy, but we will reach this point very soon with your help.

Activities and Handcraft
Teamwork at its best
Being able to sustain a Wild Animal Shelter is not easy at all, especially because of high costs. Our Animals require food, medicine and infrastructure. Nevertheless, being a Non-Profit Organization we work with a wonderful team of volunteers, so we can offer low prices for our visitors.
For example, our entrance fee is just 20 bolivianos. That’s less than half a dollar! And for children, half the price! The little ones will be able to enjoy an exclusive playground surrounded by a spectacular landscape.
Once you visit us, you will be able to enjoy delicious and natural fruit juices in our snack-bar. Also, we have a fine selection of sandwiches among others.
We have an exclusive Handcraft Shop, where each product it is unique. You may bring a beautiful memory back home supporting us at the same time.
Accomodation and Services
Support Us while Enjoying Paradise
Recently, after months of effort, we opened a comfortable private room which can host two to four people. It’s equipped with hot shower, TV with DVD and a spectacular balcony with panoramic views, where you can enjoy the mountains and our park. Also, if you have a tent, we can offer you a big camping area with a very convenient price. It has showers, bathroom, laundry and kitchen. We are planning to open soon two new private rooms for long-stays.
An Unforgettable Experience
There’s a wonderful way to visit all the natural beauties our valley has to offer, while enjoying an unforgettable horse riding experience in the mountains.
We offer guided tours from one to three hours where you can enjoy incredible views. Also, there’s an option for the more adventurous, where you can spend a whole day horseback trip around nearby Amboró National Park.
It’s also important to mention our very calm horses where beginners can fully enjoy this experience. For the little ones we also have a lovely pony that will take them for a walk inside our park.
Education brings confindence, hope and peace.
Our objective is to share our passion and responsibility about nature with the future generations. Education is crucial to make it happen. It’s very important for us to share an ecological awareness with every single person who visits our shelter. That’s why we cooperate with local schools and universities.
