“Wow, What an Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

I took my daughter here overnight for her 16th birthday (surprise). We stayed in the Lions Den and loved it, the fridge is stocked with everything you need to make yourselves a yummy breakfast! It rained quite a bit but we still had an amazing time, the staff are incredible, very helpful, knowledgeable and caring towards the animals. We were lucky enough to be a part of a night safari with an interactive wildlife presentation followed by a night feeding tour, Amazing! My daughter and I then climbed the wolf tower and spent a good fifteen-twenty minutes howling back and forth with the wolves, very cool! We were woken early in the morning by their howling, what a beautiful sound to wake up too! The second day we did the behind the scenes and picked the Lemurs, Hyenas and Fennec Fox, again this exceeded our expectations and was an amazing experience. Loved every minute of our time spent at Jungle Cat World. The staff; Ashley, Carl, Beth and the long dark haired girl in the office (sorry I can't remember your name) were so helpful and courteous as well as all the people working there. The owners are very nice and hospitable. We will definitly return for another overnight stay! Thank-you :)

“Jungle Cat World is Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

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.

“Great Behind the Scene experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

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.

“Wonderful Birthday Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

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!!!
