The sanctuary is a great cause. They help tigers who've been maltreated - giving them a home and care. As of November 2018, there are only 3 tigers. I took one of the regularly scheduled tours (just the basics); there's also a VIP tour and...More

Just a little over an hour from our home in St. Charles, this was an excellent short day trip. We chose the VIP tour and had Kayla, one of the keepers, all to ourselves for two hours. Kayla was extremely knowledgeable about the tigers and...More

We went to see the tigers for the second time. Such a well maintained facility. The knowledge of the keepers is excellent. We took some old freezer meat and old perfumes as seen on their wish list. The perfumes gives them something new to smell...More

I was a little disappointed on our visit but if you love tigers you must go. We spent the night and had to change rooms due to lots of stairs. Maybe that's why our room wasn't fully prepped. The bed was comfortable but the tv...More

Love kitties of any size and these rescues are beautiful creatures being lovingly cared for. Just a short drive off of I55 and well worth a 15 minute detour to stretch your legs and see some gorgeous creatures.

We had a great time seeing all the cats up close, hearing their stories, and learning about their care. I definitely recommend the early bird tour as that is the best chance to see them moving about and being active before they sleep most of...More
