Visit an African Wildlife Preserve
Just a five minute drive from the Coast Guard House is B Bryan Preserve. A tour of this 100 acre preserve is a rare opportunity and is highly recommended.
B Bryan Preserve was established in Point Arena by Dr. Frank and Judy Mello to aid in the conservation of rare and endangered African Antelope and Zebra. Not a zoo, but a private Preserve committed to the breeding and preservation of some wonderful, rare African Hoof Stock.
A tour at B Bryan Preserve is designed to give the visitors and animals plenty of space to roam while allowing for close up viewing. The 100 acre estate is particularly inviting at feeding time (5:30 pm in summer and 4:00 pm in Winter) for an up close view of each species. Enjoy the power and dominance performance of the male antelope, the romping of newborns and the individual personalities of zebra.
Tours are available by reservation only. The 1-1/2 hour tour cost $20 per adult and $10 for children 10 and under.
