  • I recommend the talking parrot when people walk in, the bears, the alligator, and the tigers. I loved seeing all the animals being active with each other, there is always something going on.  more »
  • A great animal sanctuary that you must see. Retired circus animals and other exotic pets find a place to live with care and love. Tigers, cougars, bears, chimps, and more. A great afternoon for the fa...  more »

  • Enjoyed the animals, the park, the trails, everything about the place is amazing. The animals where alert, healthy and happy to see people today. My big issue was with the workers/volunteers there. I understand you have your opinions but that was not the best time to go off and push your view. I have my views that I don't push back on. Have a staff member on video telling people to get back away from the fence because "the animal was disturbed" but you can tell Africa was relaxed and the only thing she was disturbed by was the workers walking behind her cage. I didn't like the worker blaming the paying customer. The fact that there was also a bear out but that "couldn't be talked about"? The animals where on point, the staff fell flat! 5 star on everything else but the staff.
  • Very cool animals here. My favorites are the wolves and bears. The animals look relaxed and happy, plenty of room for them to live. They also have tigers, lions, other big cats, primates, and more. Great gift shop. Great place to spend a few hours with family.
  • Such a nice facility. I've been here on multiple occasions, and it has always been very worthwhile. You learn a lot, and its a nice place to see animals with or without a tour. Not only that, but its so good for the animals who went through so much to be able to live out the rest of their days in such a rehabilitating environment.
  • Amazing! We booked a private tour during winter...definitely do this! We were inches from big cats, bears, primates....and our guide (Ron) was the very best!
  • Animal enclosures are large with enrichments. Animals appeared happy. Paved walking trail.Picnic area and gift shop are a bonus!
