  • What a thrilling experience. Our guide was, professional and extremely knowledgeable about each Cat. She shared stories of how the cats had ended up at the sanctuary. My husband and I will return again. Great place!!!
  • highly recommended. the people there take such good care of these beautiful big cats. if you're in branson, ABSOLUTELY go check out the sanctuary. they have all sorts of big cats there, like tigers of course, a lion, a black jaguar (panther) and mountain lions. it was VERY educational.
  • Very educational. Gorgeous tigers. Well cared for. They give you a tour and tell you about each tiger. Just do the regular tour cause its really not worth the money for the feeding tour.
  • Did the You Feed tour... really enjoyed it! They take such good care of thess cats. Highly recommend visiting and contributing to their cause!
  • This place is a true sanctuary. My family and i got an amazing experience and a new found respect for the term wild animal
