18Africa Mia Natural Private Reserve

Expect to see antelope, zebra, giraffe, and elands roaming the grassy plains of Guanacaste. Africa Mia (My Africa) offers safari-style open-jeep tours through its 100-hectare (247-acre) private reserve. The reserve is populated with a wide range of non-native (predominantly African) species. All of the animals are herbivores, so don’t expect to see any lions, hyenas, or cheetahs. Still, this grassland zoo makes it east to imagine being on the Serengeti Plains of Africa. The animals are well cared for and have plenty of room to roam. Get ready to hand feed a giraffe!!!
