Get up close and personal with wild animals at Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park and take a behind-the-scenes tour to pet and feed baby lions, tigers, lemurs, and more. The family-friendly park offers daily educational feeding tours, as well as a night safari, where you can learn more about the attraction's nocturnal animals. Bring suitable footwear if the weather is wet, as the site can get muddy. Stay for a night in the park's sarafi lodge to listen to lions roaring, wolves howling, and peacocks chirping as you drift off to sleep.

I visited for the first time and I was heartbroken to see how small the enclosures were for large animals like the Lions and tigers. Very sad for me to see such beautiful animals caged up with not a l... more »

Fun for the family or couples. Excellent variety of jungle cats and other animals. The park includes many birds. The staff is young and very enthusiastic. We were lucky enough to arrive at feeding/tour time and we were given interesting information about each cat. It is outside so I suggest proper footwear on days soon after a rainstorm.
Great 0lace for small kifs. Easy to watch and supervise active children. Has a playground and variety of cats to look at. They have yearly membership options. Very friendly staff. Not a place to go to every weekend due to location but fun a few times a year. Completely different experience from Toronto zoo. Feeding time is also fun. Staff gives back story and info on all their cat guests.
I have been to Jungle Cat World several times, and have loved it each time I have been there. This past time, we spent the night in the Bed and Breakfast. It was lovely! So spacious and a really great space. It was really interesting being able to wander the park later in the evening to see the animals when they are more active. All the sounds we could hear from the room were incredible. We enjoyed our morning coffee to the sounds of the wolves and lions! Such an incredible experience.
I have lived in Durham for 8 years and never knew this place existed. What a treat to find this place. Variety of animals was amazing and they all appeared to be well cared for. My two kids, ages 5 and 2 had a blast, as did the adults!
Staff was unbelievable. Animals were calm and affectionate with the keepers. You could tell they were happy. Highly recommend the behind the scenes tour, Luna the Fennec Fox was amazingly soft and Murphy the cervil cat was like a giant house cat. The lemurs were carrying their babies and it was so cute. Highly highly highly recommend.
