  • As i was looking for things to do in Alpine as i'm a Imperial valley resident, i found this place online and for veteran's day weekend, i had to check it out. The staff was so nice and friendly. Thank...  more »
  • I actually helped build the tiger enclosure here back in 08 I think it was. I've been out of country since then. I can't believe how big the Lions got! I remember when they were young and would "chase...  more »

  • Definitely go if you're thinking about it, but make sure you're there early. We arrived at 1:28 (for a 1:30 appointment and they don't allow you to arrive early) and they had already started the videos they make you watch before proceeding on the tour. They had us stand around for 10+ minutes for the videos to start up again and had us just catch up with the others, we missed one exhibit and half of another. I also find it a moral gray area to have these animals dance for their food in order to raise money for the organization. The one tiger gets obviously stressed when they do this. I know they're much better off here, but I hate seeing this unnecessary stress.
  • As 30 something tourists in San Diego, my husband and I were looking for activities not really involving the crowds at the San Diego Zoo/Safari Park, and for ethical reasons did not want to go to Sea World. I found this sanctuary on google, and found a groupon for an opportunity to feed one of their animals. It is about 40 minutes outside of San Diego, we used a rental car to get there. Before the tour started we watched a few informational videos about their cause and the sanctuary. I admire what this place stands for and what they provide for animals in need. During the tour I chose to feed Bakhari, their male lion, and I also won a raffle to feed their newest member - a tiger cub. My husband fed one of their jaguars. We fed the animals using a fork, about the length of a fork you would use to turn meet on a bbq, through a fence. Getting up close to the animals was an experience, and knowing what they went through just tugs at your heart strings. If we lived in San Diego I would have probably signed up as a volunteer.
  • Others try and we all strive for more although we have a super group here
  • Lions, Tigers, and Bears was excellent! Although we were a little late, they did not mind and happily put us into the tour late. The staff was really nice, the animals were very active and stress free; the whole place just had a good vibe to it. I highly suggest Lions, Tigers, and Bears to a tourist, the only set back: a long drive there and back. Other than that, coming from an animal activist my self, I love the work they do and support it to the fullest.
  • Was awesome. Closer then you think. And plain rad. Great people. Great cause. Bragged all day at work after going. Will be back for more. Thank you L.T&B !!
