This place took us all by surprise! Our tour guide was excellent - knowledgeable and engaging. The variety of cats was amazing! Some species we had never even heard of let alone seen before. Although our guide kept everyone a safe distance from the cages we were still very close to these cats. You can really appreciate their size and... More

Love the information about the cats and exciting to get so close to them. Hearing them make the different noises they make. So big and the baby cats were cute

The staff was a bit unorganized and confused with the tours, but our guide was really nice and knew everything about the cats. They all seemed to love the cats which is why I really hope they have plans to improve their living conditions. Is this even legal, to keep wild animals locked up in such small, dirty, hot pens?...

This was an amazing place. You get to learn all about these beautiful animals and preservation efforts. There are cats from small wild cats that appear domestic to jaguars, a majestic lion and Bengal tigers. I cannot believe how close we are able to get to see them. We learned about their educational and breeding programs. The animals were well... More

The guide is well versed in wild cat trivia. The cages are clean. However, the enclosures were way too small. Many of the cats were pacing back and forth, an indication of poor mental health because of living in captivity.

These cats are HUGE!! What a treat to see these well respected big cats up close. They are passionately cared and loved. All are rescue cats, from private zoos and animals with other issues that prevent wild release. They also are engaged in species preservation with zoos by working with breeding programs to prevent extinction. You will be impressed with... More

We weren't sure what to expect from this little roadside attraction and to be fair it doesn't look like much from the parking lot or gift shop, but the tour was AMAZING! They have such a great variety of cats and the keepers are, for the most part, great at coaxing them out with little treats and then telling visitors... More
