  • You want to see big cats, wolves and others up close and active? Then Jungle Cat World is the place. Affordable and the animals are in the best care. Better than any zoo I've seen.  more »
  • So we arrived at 11:30am for our noon appointment and walked around to see all the beautiful animals, which I must say you get to look at from quite close, and you can tell that they are well taken ca...  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.
  • Amazing family owned zoo that is creating a positive healthy impact on wildlife. Offering amazing programs like Safari Zoo Camp and behind the scenes tours. Well worth the trip! I used to attend zoo camp as a kid and to this day 10+ years I still visit as it has made such a lasting impression!
  • 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 don't even know how that place is still running. The poor animals are all caged in tiny enclosures and had barley any room to move around in their cage. Most animals I saw were repetitively walking in small circles or pacing back and forth in their cage, I am so disappointed and hope this "zoo" gets shut down someday and the animals will get sent somewhere where they will actually be happy.
