  • This place is great with a personal tour guide. They are able to tell you all about the animals and also personal stories of the animals. The tour was fun, informative and interactive. 
  • This is an up close and personal view of these animals and a fabulous tour given by Jake who is incredibly knowledgeable about everything and an adventure not to be missed if in this area! 
  • This was my first visit to the Conservator Center in Burlington, NC. I enjoyed the Treats and Toys tour I took. The guides were very knowledgeable and shared stories about the animals, they both made ...  more »

  • Absolutely fantastic place. The staff and volunteers are clearly devoted to the safety and care of these majestic rescued exotic animals. Special events are a blast to attend. It's a wonderful place to get a close (but still be very safe) peek at animals you might never get to be this close to.
  • The areas best kept secret for sure! You are so close to all the animals and the tour guides are the BEST! They give you information on the facility and tons of information on the animals. They even make call nioses to get the animals "talking" to one another. There's also an option for those who can't walk it. You can pay $5 more for a ride in the golf cart. This is a great idea so I can take my mom next time. I can't wait to go back for another tour. I'm even looking into volunteering there.
  • 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.
  • Very enthusiastic tour guide and the chance to see big cats up close and more intimately than a standard zoo.
