  • Probably the best sanctuary I have ever visited. The educational tours they do are very insightful. The care and concern the staff has for the wonderful cats they look after is very touching. We need more great projects like this who are run by people who love what they do.
  • We visited in June and with our grandaughter spending a few days with us in in the July holidays , decided it would be a great place to take her. This time our guide was Abbey and she ,like Martin last time, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We learnt some more and grandaughter loved the whole experience. Abbey answered the young people's questions openly and honestly. Besides the wonderful work this sanctuary does they offer an experienced that leaves one thinking long after. Thank you all. Moira Walker.
  • Beautiful place with some heartbreaking stories. Our guide Abby knew every animal by name and all their histories too. A lifechanging experience
  • A must go see. Wonderful work that needs all the support it can get.
  • Interesting experience, perhaps a bit heavy on the talking side but the work they do for these big cats is brilliant.
