This safari started as a way to protect Guatemala’s native endangered species. It has expanded to include a wide variety of species from Africa and other continents. Most of the animals here live in wide-open spaces, free from enclosures. Plants like orchids and butterfly trees make it a beautiful space for the animals to inhabit.
Cerro Alux covers 13,270 acres (5,3270 ha) just outside of Guatemala City. This ecological reserve is known for its unspoiled tract of pine oak forest, and a clean water supply that helps quench the local population. Cerro Alux is also a federally-maintained Important Bird Area (IBA).
