If you're a cat fan, this is a must see attraction. You'll see 29 great cats of 17 different species. What's unusual is that these are the cats you'll find gracing anything from cat calendars to books where photography is involved. 60% of the photography of wildcats in this country is produced by Great Cats. They have one cat, Magic,... More

Most people drive by this place thinking it's a tourist trap. It's NOT! If it was???....you wouldn't drive by! It has the most informative guides and they're great at feeding and treating their cats with their health in mind. They have EVERY kind of cat you've EVER heard of..... and a bunch more you've NEVER heard of!!! First off.... you... More

This is a small zoo, focused on education and photo-taking. The docents are very knowledgeable, and use meat treats to encourage the cats to interact. But they're not overworked. If they don't want to play, no one pushes them. They have days when they are off the clock and people don't go near those enclosures. Every enclosure is natural, lots... More

We took the tour that took about 1.5 hours. It was amazing to see the variety of cats at this location. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and was willing to answer all our questions.

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was Farrah and she was a walking encyclopedia of the cats. We got to see each cat up close and personal and it was obvious they were very cared for and loved. I do not agree with some of the other people that wrote a criticism about their enclosures. They were definitely not... More

Although a bit off the beaten path, the Great Cats Park is worth the time and drive. My husband and I have been here before and likely will return yet again. These wonderful animals are well cared for and healthy and within just a few feet of visitors; and the staff is very knowledgeable about each one. You might even... More

I have driven past the site many times without stopping because I usually had an appointment somewhere. This summer we made a point of going there with friends. Our guide was excellent and well informed, and we learned a lot about the animals and how many of them are there to help the species survive. I was surprised by the... More

I really don't like the idea of zoos, circus', etc, but we went to check this place out after driving by so many times. I always thought these were rescued cats, but it was explained that all the cats here were born in captivity and are used for population growth, movies, photography, etc. The tour guide we had was knowledgeable...

I'm not sure how I feel about wild animals in captivity, but the guy who did our tour loves these cats so much, that you know he treats them well. He was very knowledgable and charismatic.

I'm conflicted because they live in such small cages, but they are breeding rare and almost extinct cats. Very unique experience....our guide was amazing! I think her name was Savanna...
