I had no idea such a place existed so close to Indy. We found it by accident on Google. Very low key - no frills tour. Over 200 big cats - all rescued. No cubs. They don't breed the cats - only take care of the ones they rescue. Educational and a good way to spend an hour outdoors.

This is such an interesting place to visit. They have lots of rescued animals in this rural location. They do such a great job of taking care of the cats amp d providing large and roomy enclosures for their animals. Definitely worth the visit.

This is a great attraction there is not another place you can get this close to these magnificent cats! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the cats that are housed here. I have visited a couple times and will again what they are doing here to help these cats is phenomenal work.

If you get within 100 miles YOU MUST GO HERE. Never seen anything like it. Had no idea a place like this existed outside India or Africa. Huge beautiful cats that are superbly taken care of. These monsters purr, play, growl and scent. A leisurely guided tour gets you close up and personal. Worth it at twice the price. God... More

I visit several times a year. It never gets old. The experience is always amazing!!! Wish I could upload the videos I have, when the lion's start "talking" (roaring) to one another it is awe inspiring, you feel it vibrate through your chest and radiate throughout your body. You are surrounded on all sides and in that moment realize the... More

This was a great experience! Getting to see these animals up close and watching them live in as close to possible natural surroundings. The tour leader did a great job of explaining and educating the group on each animal we saw. Well worth it!

This was truly a great experience. We've been wanting to go for over a year but the timing was never quite right until yesterday. It's cheap and you get way more out of it than any old zoo!! We actually gave them twice the admission as a donation. Go learn about the cats and see then in more natural habitats... More

We were told there are about 200 animals that live on the property and we would see about 50 of them on our guided tour. It did not disappoint. The animals seem well cared for and they have ample space. They live out the rest of their lives in this protected environment as many of them were abused, abandoned or... More

This is not a zoo! Animals are rescue animals, and are not put on "show" for visitors. They live in as close to their natural habitats as possible. The tour gets you very close to the animals, and would not be good for small children. Guides are very knowledgable and friendly. They offer a wonderful day camp for 8-11 year... More

This is a remarkable endeavor on the part of many people, paid and volunteer. It tugs at your heartstrings to hear the horrible stories of the abuse of these beautiful animals. Kudos to these hard-working people.
