experiences - Donkey walks and sanctuary tours
At Donkey Dreamland we can offer you, your family and your friends a choice of very special and unique experiences. We offer guided tours followed by interactions with the donkeys, plus if you book the full experience you will get advice about how to handle the donkeys before setting off on a walk with the donkeys in the hills behind La Cala de Mijas. Available most Saturdays and Sundays. Click on the link below for availability.
walk with the donkeys and share their love
There is a Standard Experience and a VIP Experience. In both cases, join Donkey Dreamland rescue centre in their daily activities taking care of the rescued donkeys. Guests will learn about the experiences of some of the donkeys. After a tour of the sanctuary you will take a walk with the donkeys, enjoying the company of these amazing creatures as well as experiencing the beautiful countryside surrounding the sanctuary.
Surrounded by beautiful wildlife and olive trees, you will find it hard to believe that you are just 5 minute drive from the beach, except that for the most part you will have an enticing view of the sea, when you are not gazing into the loving eyes of the donkeys.
For the VIP experience, after the walk you will have a traditional Andalucian brunch of local organic virgin olive oil on fresh bread with tomato and a selection of cheeses and fruits, plus a choice of orange juice or mimosas. You will then have an opportunity to experience the life of the volunteers, looking after the donkeys. This will include feeding, cleaning their stables and paddocks, grooming and applying cures. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear and advise us in advance of any food allergies.
