    Phillips Animal Garden

    For anyone who has been to Phillips, how large is this place and how long would you estimate you could spend here? Just trying to plan activities and transportation while in Aruba next month. Thanks so much!!

    we spent approximately an hour to an hour and a half.
    it is relatively small. not loads of walking.
    it was a nice visit and very interesting.
    enjoy.

    Thumbs up Phillips Animal Garden!!

    Long time since posting....here now with the wife and kids for trip #5...we visited the Animal Garden yesterday , and wow!!! Extremely informative and fun for us all. Phillip is a wonderful person and seems to be truely connected with the animals...if you can go , do it!!! Just be wary of the "hairless bunnies"...Our son and daughter(11 & 9)loved feeding the cupuchan monkeys , petting the roos , and talking with Phillip. We spent about an hour to hour 1/2 there and it is refreshing to see someone who has passion and really does something to better this beautiful island. Highly recommend this and will visit every year from now on!!!

    Bon Dia from paradise....Shaun and family.

    How far is it from the high rise area? Do you take a cab, and then have them come back for you later?

    it is about a 10 - 15 min ride from the hi rise area inland.
    maybe a little less .

    you could arrange for taxi to drop you off and come back in an hr and a half.
    if you go first thing in the morning it is not too hot.
