  • This place does a wonderful service to animals that need a home. They don't do the bare minimum, they really focus on loving these animals and educating others. The cages are much larger than required by law, you can tell all the animals trust the staff, and 100% of proceeds go to animal care. They don't do this for the money, even though they take in animals who were harmed by others than just wanted to make a profit. Very awesome place.
  • An unforgettable experience I will never ever forget these animals, they are very happy. Very loved. The way they react with the staff you know that they have a bond with the people caring for them. Our tour guide was amazing. It was very hot and they made sure everyone was comfortable and keeping hydrated, I thought that was very nice. Love to Deborah the founder of this beautiful sanctuary! Didn't get to meet her but if I had I probably would have teared up. What amazing people and animals!!!
  • What a special and wonderful place. Beautiful tigers and lions, great tour! So much more exciting than a zoo. The staff are friendly, informative. And, they feed the animals during tbe tour so you're guaranteed to see the animals awake, energetic and entertaining. Just super!
  • Very caring reserve for orphaned by owners lions and Tigers. Must make reservation for a personalized group tour. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing experience! The tour guide was very informative. The animals are well cared for and magnificent creatures. Highly recommend this place!
