Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary
Lonely Planet review for Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary
Animal-lovers won’t want to miss the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, 20 miles southeast of Ramah off Hwy 53. Home to rescued and captive-born wolves and wolf-dog mixes, the sanctuary offers six interactive walking tours per day, where you walk with the wolves – and get closer than you’ve imagined – that roam the sanctuary’s large natural habitat enclosures. On the quarter-mile walk you’ll learn more about conservation efforts, the sanctuary’s mission and all about wolves – from behavior to what they like to eat. If you want to stay here overnight, primitive camping is available for $10 per night – you’ll need all your own equipment and note that bathrooms are of the scoop and bury variety. Still, it’s cool to camp out and hear the howl of wolves not far away.
