I toured the 777 this weekend and was extremely impressed at the job these guys have done there. The animals are fantastic with so many different species and such large groups it is truly amazing. It was like going back in time to Africa when animals were abundant. With the future of so many endangered species looking very bleak we should all be proud to have facilities like the 777 that will help preserve animal species for humans to enjoy well into the future. Thank you 777 for the wonderful animals that you guys raise insuring species survival for so many that are about to become extinct in their native homelands. Job well done!

Went to the 777 this weekend. Had an incredible time. We had Steven Rann as our guide. He was fantastic! Though the doves were not moving, he made the experience so enjoyable that we could have cared less about no dove. He took us around and showed us all of the incredible species that the 777 offers. The whole staffed catered to anything we need. They took such great care of use. We will definitely be back to chase some big game with Steven!
