We stayed overnight at the Lions Den in mid April with 2 ten year olds. We had a great time in our beautifully decorated room. We brought our supper as there is a full kitchen. We had our self serve breakfast with provided eggs, bacon, bread, jam, yogurt, cheese,fruit, juice, coffee, tea etc. Great hearing the animals when waking up in the morning.

We checked in at 1 and our room was ready.


We enjoyed the daytime feeding. We attended a wildlife presentation in the evening and then a nightime feeding of some animals. All very informative. We went through the park several times.

My daughter and I went on the Behind the Scenes tour of Lemurs, Kangagroo and fox. The lemurs were all over us;it is so interactive. We loved it. Mitchell did a great of sharing information with us. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

We highly recommend a night time stay, or at least a trip to experience the feeding and see the animals.

We went last summer for a birthday party and had a very memorable time. The staff was very knowledgeable and being able to pet different animals was great for the kids. We had a really great time.

I traveled here last summer during my camping trip. The behind the scenes tour was great. I was able to pet a baby cougar, lemurs, and hyenas. Defiantly worth the cost. Have many great pictures from the experience.

We planned a whole weekend surprise for my husband's birthday, and he was absolutely delighted. From the welcoming tour of the Safari Lodge, to the behind the scenes tours, everyone at Jungle Cat world was eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. There are no words to describe what it's like to hear the tigers roar while you are eating supper, or to go to sleep to the howls of the wolves. If you are looking for a one of a kind adventure, equally enjoyable for every member of the family, pretend you are the family in "We Bought a Zoo" for a night. So worth it!!!

My partner and I spent the day at Jungle Cat World and had a great time!
Our trainer, Carl, was exceptional during the 'behind the scenes' part of our day - it was a truly unique experience for us so far being in such close contact with those animals. As someone who grew up in a very rural area, cougars were talked about often but rarely seen - being able to actually pet one live was great! The other animals were also very interesting and fun.

The only constructive comment I would make is that it would be nice to know the animals, especially the larger ones, had a larger range.

We appreciate that animal conservation and education were a focus of the feeding tour, as well as the 'behind the scenes' part. You can tell that the staff genuinely care about the animals. We will be back again.
