A great experience
Apr 2021 • Family
We visited McCarthy’s today for the first time and had an amazing experience. Alexis was our guide and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer or more knowledgeable person to take us around and show us all of the animals. The experience was both very educational and very fun. We will definitely be back.

Excellent animal knowledge
Apr 2021 • Family
Amazing animal experience! Alexis is very knowledgeable. Make sure you bring $1 for cold water, money to tip your tour guide and money for gift shop items if desired. A must if in the area

Unexpectedly amazing trip to a sanctuary!
Apr 2021 • Couples
The 5 stars is to low in my opinion. There should be a plus sign next to this for the unexpected experience. If your fortunate to get Lisa as your guide it an added bonus. She took her time explained the backgrounds of each animal on how they came to be acquired, weight, what they liked to eat, if they can be mated and general knowledge. I have been to many zoos and this is so much more intimate. You get to interact with some of the animals but what’s best is you really get super close to them and see them up close, especially the cats!!! By the way don’t be cheap and tip you guide since half goes to the sanctuary. The animals are in fantastic shape which is rare.

Wonderful experience
Apr 2021
Our tour guide Madison was wonderful and showed us so many exotic animals along with stories of how they were rescued and their personalities. It was such a fun 2-hour tour! Make sure you make reservations, they do not take walk ins (or at least didn't when I went in April 2021, possibly due to COVID). Great for kids or adults!

So much better than a zoo!
Apr 2021 • Family
Wow!! My family had a wonderful time getting up close and learning all about the animals. Lisa was a fabulous guide, and took time to answer questions. Everyone I met was passionate about these animals and their mission. We never felt rushed and we got to meet every animal in the park. I loved hearing the stories about how they were rescued, and how they got their names. Seeing the way the animals respond to the guides leads me to believe they are well cared for. The place was very clean, and the animals looked very healthy. So much better than visiting a zoo!! We will definitely go back on future trips!

We visited this place on April 9 and I am in love with it. Alexis was our guide and she was so knowledgeable of all the animals and give us great information about their background. This place is clean and you can see that the animals are really taken care. I love the job they are doing and I definitely will visit again. I highly recommend this place to anyone that loves animals and want to support it.

Awesome
Apr 2021 • Family
McCarthy’s Wildlife was outstanding! Our family ranged in age from 10-70. Everyone agreed it was one of the highlights of the vacation.
Our tour guide, Alexis, was phenomenal. She told us the background of the animals and we thoroughly enjoyed her interaction with them.
I would definitely recommend a visit to McCarthy’s.

3 generations of our family all had a great time. The guide was knowledgeable and fun and the animals were not only very impressive but also numerous and well looked after. Highly recommended.
