9:30am & 4:00pm
(3:30pm in winter)
duration: 1 hour
A visit to B Bryan Preserve is designed to give the visitors and animals plenty of space to roam while allowing for close up viewing. Not a typical zoo as we have only a few species but big herds of them. Located on 110 acres, our animals are allowed to live in their near-natural environment.
Join us at 9:30 am or 4:00 pm for an up close view of each species. We are only open during the those times and do not accept drop-ins. The tour is one hour.
Visits are available by reservation only. A credit card must be provided. The credit card on file will be immediately charged unless prior arrangements have been made. Cancellations may be made up to 3 days prior for a refund, however a $5 cancellation fee will be charged.
The 1 hour tour cost is $35 per adult and $20 for all children 10 and under (including infants). All major credit cards are accepted.
Tours are held rain, sun or wind. Unless it is a major Pacific storm, the tour will go on. We are strict on our cancellation policy as we may have turned people down to accept your reservation and hired extra drivers. Please consider the policy when you book. We do not provide refunds for no-shows or cancellations made less than three days before your tour.
what to expect
A tour of B Bryan Preserve is designed to educate our visitors. We start with a lecture in our circa 1800 barn. We then move into a vintage open air land rover. Don’t worry about your seating position as we get out frequently at various enclosures to get you as close as safely possible for the best pictures and tell you all about the species. The tour ends with the visitor feeding the Giraffe and possibly a kiss from one of our Giraffe boys.
For your comfort, have a jacket on hand. The fog and wind can descend upon Point Arena in minutes and become chilly. Comfortable walking shoes are also recommended. Expect some mud during the winter.
Pets are not allowed on B Bryan Preserve for their safety as well as the safety of our animals. You are welcome to leave them in your car so long as the weather is not too hot.
first saturday of every month
Get creative and up close to our majestic giraffe. Open for guests 6 and older, this is a rare opportunity to hold a canvas while a giraffe “paints” it. You can also feed them treats, and afterwards come home with an 8 x 10 masterpiece. Painting sessions last 45 minutes, are $50 per guest, and are limited to 8 participants each.
Tour starts at 1:30. All proceeds go to the care of the giraffe at B Bryan Preserve.
