Your dream vacation may look like a tropical beach filled with swimsuits, sandals, and sand — and we feel that. But, if it looks more like a farm filled with fuzzy, furry, and feathery friends, then we’ve got major travel-tea to spill: taking a trip to an animal-filled oasis isn’t only possible, it’s rentable too. Llama-lovers, this one’s for you.
We did major recon on beautiful Airbnbs that also double as sanctuaries for llamas, horses, goats, potbelly pigs, and more, with rental proceeds going towards rescue-animal care and rehabilitation programs. Whether it’s a cozy alpaca ranch in California, an eco-monkey reserve in Belize, or a solar-powered goat farm in South Africa, the ten rentals ahead are made for four-legged friends and their biggest fans — and all come passionately recommended from the animal-lovers who stayed there, first-hand.
