What a fun place to visit! I'd seen their website, but a Groupon deal, was a big incentive. We stayed in Cabin #7, the Bear's Den. The two beds were advertised as extra long twin beds, but I thought they looked more like double size. Very comfortable with heated mattress pads. There was also a portable heater, that kept the...

this was a truly AMAZING trip!!!! the cabins really are canvas so bring warm clothes and slippers! but that adds to the wonderful feeling of the trip. the cabins are luxurious and comfortable, just chilly at night. The animals are beautiful and I could have sat there all day and watched them from our deck. the morning elephant delivery of... More

We stayed 2 nights which I highly recommend. Our "tent" was #5 with the zebra theme. We had a good view of the "playground" and watched the elephants, zebra, ostrich, and water buffalo. The room had a coffee maker and small refrigerator. Space heater was provided, but although quite cool at night, we only used the electric mattress heating pad.... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We stayed in bungalow #6 which is Josef's Jungle. It is more isolated than the others which we loved. We looked forward each morning to getting a visit from Butch the elephant that came along with the continental breakfast that was given to us both mornings. We went on the Crunch... More

Our friends gave a us an overnight stay here and we had Cabins #3 and #4. We did our homework before we got here so we selected these two cablins as they were closest to the elephant yard. The entire experience was just like the majority of tripadvisor guest who had a favorable time here have described. We looked into... More

This place is really fantastic. The only mistake we made was staying over New Year's Eve. We just happened to stay in the middle of the coldest, cold spell of the winter. It was in the low 30's! That's our fault. The do have a good space heater and heated mattress pads. But, it pretty much means you want to... More

Great to see and be close to animals that you would normally have no contact with. A great oppurtunity and to share with someone special. Make sure to ask for the VIP tour. Up close and personal with these amazing animals.

We stayed in the big cat house.. In our opinion it had the best location, great room, king bed.. Wonderful deck overlooking the Elephants, Water Buffalo, Zebra, and a very Entertaining Ostrich play yard.... Where else can you sit on the deck of your bungalow and hear Lions roar? I loved the feeling we were in another country yet just... More

We stayed in Joseph's jungle it's set off from the others, it's more secluded and private but yet you can still hear the cats roar! We were celebrating my husbands 83rd birthday and liked the more romantic seclusion it was perfect. Very nicely decorated and comfy. The best part was the breakfast delivery by an Elephant that you can feed... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Big Cat Bungalow and right from the start it was amazing. The bungalow had so much character and the bed was SO comfortable. We purchased the Crunch Time and Butch's Bedtime combo package and we did not regret it at all. It was great to learn about all the animals and their behaviors... More
