  • This place was really cool. The tour is donation based and when we went it was a suggested $20 each. They have a cute gift shop that sells water, stuffed animals, and photos. The tour is 2 hours long and you get to see tons of big cats and bears. We rrally enjoyed seeing the animals relatively closely (6 ft away), and learning about their feeding habits. A tip for parents: This place is good for well behaved kids, but not really young kids (you often have to walk single file past an animal or remain a certain number of feet from an enclosure). It's super educational, and the kids on our tour really enjoyed themselves.
  • Not exactly what you would expect for an animal sanctuary. I went expecting a pleasant walk through acres of wildlife rescue habitats, but instead we rarely saw any animals because they were hiding and did not want to be seen. The tour guide was quite unpleasant and cut the tour short because she was hot. I will not be going back and I wouldn't recommend it unless you just want to see trees and animal enclosures.
  • Today we went on a guided Tour, and it was amazing. They have a beatiful place! And our guide was super; sweet and very informative. We loved to hear The stories of how every single animal ended up there. Thank you for taking Care of these beautiful animals 👍👍🤗
  • It was awesome. I had fun and the animals were really adorable. 10/10 skating lion.
  • Take the time to visit and support this 501(c)(3) in Rhome, Texas. They are doing amazing work in humanely housing lions, tigers, AND bears... Oh my. They usually do 1 to 2 tours per day and the suggested donation is $20. It a walking tour on some varying terrain, so keep that in mind.
