Costa Rica and Tempisque Safari Adventures Conservation

Of its 31,927 sq. mi, Costa Rica has 25% of its land protected, either by National Parks or Wildlife Refuges.  In our Tropical Rainforests, Cloud Forests and within its boundaries, our country´s biodiversity attracts nature lovers from all around.

In Costa Rica there are approximately 205 species of mammals, 845 species of birds and 218 species of reptiles, some of which are threatened to extinction.

At Tempisque Safari Adventures we have developed a Breeding area and Wildlife Refuge dedicated to the reproduction of wild animals in danger of extinction. When the animals are ready, they are released into their natural habitat and protected in this project of extensive pasture land, which has been declared Animal Rescue Center and Ecological Wildlife Refuge by the Costa Rican Government.

We are part of the Conservation Area of the Tempisque Lowlands, bordering  the Tempisque River, alongside Palo Verde National Park, in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica.

Tempisque Safari Adventures presently has groups of animals native to Costa Rica as well as other species that have been bred in our refuge, offering visitors the opportunity to observe and also interact with them.

Our mission at Tempisque Safari Adventures is to achieve a conservation oriented culture and contribute by preserving endangered species so that future generations can enjoy and at the same time learn from the effort that we are undertaking.

Animal Feeding

We offer crocodile feeding shows, as well as macaws feeding on each tour.   Here and during the whole time you will be able to interact with many animals, providing for great photo opportunities and the chance to learn a lot more about Costa Rican Native Wildlife, as well as animals from other areas.  We ask our visitors to help us by not feeding any of the animals, other than what is part of our Tour.
