Joined a tour and walked thru the rescue center. Saw around 30+ felines and lions within 5 feet. Listen to them pur roar and saw them jump around. Simply amazing

We really weren't sure what to expect. As others have mentioned it is really incredible to be able to walk on a path so close to many of the animals. Most seemed curious enough to want to be seen too. We heard them roar, purr, and make other noises that you usually don't hear when visiting a zoo. Their enclosures... More

We went here for a wedding and were impressed with the mission of the center. Animals are rescued and given a safe place to spend their lives. All animals are spayed or neutered. It was a little unnerving to be so close to such big cats! They also have a cabin to spend the night that we may try later...

Had no idea I could hear a lion ROAR so close to home! The Exotic Feline Rescue Center is an action packed way to spend the afternoon. Volunteers give guided tours between pens of big cats; we could tell our guide, Diane, was really passionate about her job. We center is bigger than we anticipated; we saw lots of tigers,... More

We have been to the EFRC four or five times, and it's a great experience. You get so close to the cats you could almost touch them. The tour guides give you a bunch of information on the cats, and their background. If you go bring comfortable walking shoes, it's a long walk on a gravel road. All of the... More

A friend recommended this place and it was well worth it. You're able to really get right next to the big cats but still feel safe. The guide was amazing, with an amazing knowledge of each rescue animal. We went on a Sunday at 1, right at feeding time, so that made for sn even better experience. We were able... More

Found this place by accident. Decided to stay overnight. Overwhelmed by proximity to animals and ability to sit outside and just watch them. Private tour the next morning during feeding time was worth the money. Take your video camera. Hearing lions roar in the middle of the night was like being in Africa and an experience I'll never forget. Do... More

My daughters wanted to visit this rescue center after reading about it. I guess if your not afraid of large cats that are Very, Very close to you then it may be the place for you. It's in a very rural area and your surrounded by large cats at all times. All the lions, tigers and more are caged but... More

I love this place! You get to get very close with the animals, and hear their heart breaking stories. Many of the animals have come from abusive situations. The place is very natural conditions, meaning be prepared for poison ivy and the possibility of being "marked/sprayed" by one of the animals. You gotta be aware and move out of the... More

I think having rescue centers is really important and valuable. I looked forward to our visit to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center but was a bit disappointed. You do get extremely close to the cats (so close you can be sprayed!), which I know is a big draw for a lot of people, but for me, it didn't really add... More
