We went on a recommendation of a friend. I have mixed feelings about this place . In a sense I guess they are doing a good thing but after I viewed the animals in my opinion they look miserable. The cages were small, clean but small. It's hard to see the animals because the weeds were grown up so much.... More

My boyfriend and I were the fist to visit on the in the morning. It was close to feeding time, so many of the animals were active with anticipation. This made seeing the big cats so very entertaining. The bear was a beautiful site to see, even though he was sleepy. The lions roar and the tigers chuff, along with... More

We actually discovered this attraction via TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. This place is in the boonies and is nothing fancy. But it is a wonderful place to get up close to exotic animals while getting a personal guide to give you their history. Each animal has a name and a back-story. They are well-cared for, and... More

This way off the beaten path animal rescue reserve should be a must see for any individual that is ever contemplating owning an exotic animal. It was the first day of the tour season for this incredible place. After driving through muddy dirt roads we arrived at the site. We saw an iron stand with a bell and a sign... More

Personal tour of the animals from the owner of the property. So many animals with unique stories. Fun to experience for all ages. Certainly off the beaten path, but well worth the donation to a non profit making a difference for unwanted animals.

My girlfriend and I explored out that way one day and stopped at the cracker museum and went out "back" to see the wildlife. It was awsome!! Very clean restrooms, animal areas very clean and tidy. Very interesting. We plan on strolling threw again in the fall when it's not so hot & humid. Enjoyed it very much.

Went right after seeing the tigers at a craft show in North Port. Loved looking at the wild life. Had no idea we had this here in Fl.
