Rules, Regulations & Suggestions

All guests to The Shambala Preserve must be at least 18 years old. No exceptions. We offer "Partners in Education Program" for schools and youth groups.

Also keep in mind that Shambala is in a high-risk fire area. The Wild Ones ask that you do not smoke.

We suggest that you wear comfortable, flat shoes. Shambala is located on unimproved land so you will be walking on dirt pathways and not paved roads. For this reason comfortable shoes are a must.

Also we ask that you do not wear shorts. This will protect you not only from the sun but also from low brush and shrubs.

Also remember to dress for the climate, dress in cool layers and remember a hat in the summer. In the winter a coat is a must.

We suggest that you bring a camera for your personal use only. You may take pictures of the Wild Ones as well as our lovely grounds. Don't forget extra film and batteries as we do not have these items available for purchase.

PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR PETS. They will not be allowed into the preserve and it is not healthy for them to be left in the car.

Remember, our animals are wild, not pets. We do not allow any touching.

Please remember to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy after your visit. We have tables and chairs in our lake area where you can enjoy your meal after your tour.

We also suggest you bring plenty of water, especially during the summer months as it does get very warm. Although we do sell water in the Trading Post, sometimes we run out so it helps to plan ahead.
