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.

The Exotic Feline Rescue is an easy hour drive from the west side of Indy. This rescue is amazing. Don't expect to see a zoo - like setting, but do expect to see beautiful lions, tigers, and bobcats who had horrible lives before coming to this wonderful place. Our tour guide led us through the rescue carefully explain each animal's... More

While camping at nearby Lieber SRA, we decided to venture out to a nearby town, took a wrong turn, and happened upon this pearl of a place! The previous reviewers are spot-on; it is completely amazing and you would never expect to find such a place in rural Indiana! If you have any interest at all in these beautiful felines... More

We went around 12noon and it was feeding time for many of the big cats. It was really interesting. You actually get to walk along a path that is right next to the cages that house the animals. Very up close to the animals... Once in a lifetime opportunity.

Well worth it. Fantastic up close experience of big cats. Tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. Looks a little shabby at first, but I'm leaving here very impressed.
