The St. Augustine Wild Reserve offers tours on an appointment-only basis. We are not open to the public, except for two-hour tours, reserved in advance. Tours are held in the afternoon, usually on Saturdays and Wednesdays at 2pm. Email as far in advance as possible to make reservations. Requested minimum donation is $25 per person; children 10 and under are admitted for a minimum donation of $15. We may be able to schedule a tour on a different day, if we know far enough in advance. Guests will be given a guided tour of the 7-acre animal compound by an experienced wildlife professional. An introduction to each species, basic biology, and how the species arrived at our sanctuary will be discussed in detail. Visitors will be allowed a close up view of the exotic animals. Although we do not allow handling of any of the Reserve’s animals, guests will be able to venture closer to adult African lions than they ever imagined. Also on the tour will be our amazing white tigers, Angel, Krishna, Toruk and Chakra, several orange tigers, cougars, servals, lynxes, leopards, hyenas, coati mundis, and a host of wolves ranging in color from black to white. We also have an enormous bird collection, which includes African turacos, conures, macaws, Amazon parrots, and even parakeets, cockatiels, doves, quail and finches. We feed all of the big cats on the tour, and set up a tiger bubblebath for one pair of tigers. Please come visit us for a wonderful wildlife experience!
