This place is great. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the individual cats and big cats in general, the enclosures are roomy, and the cats seem to be very well taken care of.

As mentioned in previous reviews, it is in the middle of nowhere, better for the natural habitat aspect. The hour long tour is well worth the money and a great experience for all ages!

Phenomenal experience! The closest I have ever been to happy and unstressed lions and tigers. The tour is an hour and the keeper who guided us was a true expert and clearly loved her work. The venue is unpretentious and very authentic, and the fences...More

If you use GPS pay attention as this place is out of the way down narrow gravel roads. Parking in on the road outside the center. $10 per person and well worth it and the tours are excellent and interactive with the cats. Hope a...More

Not a problem-bring your camera/phone. They are all behind fences, but often right next to them. However if weather is bad, you might not see them at all. I took some people there last June on a very hot but sunny day and... More
