  • How often do you get to stand within 3-5 feet from a full grown male lion? You can at the Conservators Center. We took a twilight tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. They care for so many amazi...  read more »

  • We had such a good time here, took the kids on a hot Sunday morning. A lot of the animals were lounging in the shade due to the heat but the animal keepers were very good at their job! They treated us to a group "roar" session and got to enjoy hearing all the lions, the tigers AND the wolves howl and roar as a family! So interesting that they live there but the staff cares so much for these animals, the animals are calm and relaxed around people, they seemed to love their life. It was such a fascinating trip with great education for kids and opportunity to get up close to these beautiful animals.
  • You know what zoos lack? A tour guide! What's looking at animals of you can't ask questions? This place is great. It's kind of small, but they have good variety and well informed guides. Good for families, groups, kids, anyone. You need to stay calm, so maybe don't bring kids (or spouses 😉) with behavioural problems who you think couldn't last an hour without scaring the animals. Get a reservation first, or you won't get past the gift shop. There are restrooms, but not during the tour. There are bottled drinks, but no food. Not the best variety of gifts. The place is pretty out of the way, so try to schedule yourself time to find it. They have every variety of cat, from tiny jungle cats to a white tiger. They also have a couple lemurs, bearcats, wild dog species and a couple wolves. In the small animal section, the smell can get overwhelming, so take precautions if you have sensitive lungs. Bring a camera, you can get very close to the animals at times, so you don't need to bring a zoom lens. Bring a good audio recording video camera, if you have one, since you could get to hear your tour guide set off the lion roars or wolves howling.
  • Wonderful tour guide, beautiful exotic animals, and educational. Had a great time with my son.
  • This place was absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough about the tour you get ( I went to the Adult Winter in the Wild tour). The tour guides are very knowledgeable, and do a great job interacting with you and the animals. The animals themselves are obviously well taken care of...I highly recommend this place!
  • We got to learn more about the animals & we got to hear the Lions roar....thanks to our amazing tour guide!!
