We were in Springfield for an event and needed something to do during the day. After doing some research, I found the National Tiger Sanctuary. We decided that since we had some much time to spare, we would go ahead and do the behind the...More
My husband and I went on the tour the other day, and we loved it. We decided to splurge a little to go on the feeding tour, and it was worth it! You are about 3 feet away from the big cats, and the tour...More
