  • So worth the drive. The owners of the place are so friendly and welcoming. My family and I enjoy being able to get up close to the critters--so much better than the Toronto Zoo, but less animals.
  • What a wonderful experience, hearing the story of how this place all started, seeing how interactive they have raised the animals, how they taught them humans are good, we personally did the encounter and I'd highly recommend it. Animal cages were very clean, animals were well taken care of and clearly loved. The animals absolutely loved the attention, the trainers / employees were well educated on the location, they answered all my crazy questions, the merchandise was well priced. Food selection was terrible, and not fancy, the washrooms were slightly messy, and the parking was a little confusing / unorganized but every place has their flaws. My family and I enjoyed to mission to this location and hope to do it again soon. Keep up the great work! We returned again Dec 26th 2018 for the behind the scenes encounter with 6 other family members as a Christmas present to them. I can not find the right words to explain how amazing of a gift it was for them, everyone loved the entire experience even with the freezing cold weather. Thank you again guys! See you soon.
  • It was awesome! The animals were plentiful & the stuff were awesome. Totally recommend, the year pass isn't expensive either
  • What an amazing experience! Not many chances you will get to be up close and personal with animals like this! The owner Wolf showed us around and was so kind and friendly. Our overnight stay was amazing! We could hear the cats roaring in the middle of the night. When the zoo keepers return in the am the wolves all howl in excitement. Highly recommended for animal lovers. Please note animals come with smells so don't expect it to smell like roses.
  • Edit: I'm changing my review to 2 stars after my most recent visit. I traveled here in the spring and the whole place was insanely muddy. The paths were terrible and everything was flooded, we were cold and soaked by the time we left. Even some of the animals were covered in mud and their enclosures were swamps. We were warned after we'd paid to stay away from the Canada geese because they were nesting and vicious. I can't believe they charged us full price for such a terrible experience. The zoo shouldn't have been open in such a state. My original review: Jungle Cat World is a deceptively large park with many beautiful and well cared for animals. I was taken aback at first by the somewhat small enclosures which they are kept in, however between the enrichment for them in the park and the general behaviour of these animals it is clear that they are happy; there are far more important factors to a creature's well-being than simply the size of the enclosure. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and hope to visit again soon.
