  • It's an impressive sized park, and as the name indicates full of tigers and big cats. The staff is very friendly.  more »

  • We went around noon so most of the cats were not very active, but we could still see them and learn their stories. They are obviously well cared for and loved. Wish we could have taken the extended tour and seen the training session. Our 8 & 13 year old grandkids really enjoyed seeing the large cats and learning about them. Would recommend going earlier in morning when cooler.
  • Great place for day trip for all ages. First class facilities for an animal reserve. Beautiful cats are obviously well cared for. Will visit again soon.
  • This is a really cool way to see big cats up close and help give them a better life. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is great, and the cats deserve it.
  • This was not at all what I expected for a "refuge" or "sanctuary". It's a big cat zoo. The cages are far too small for such large cats. I understand the need for enclosures for the predators, but I was hoping for something that would give them room to at least feel like they were free. I got my hopes up when the guide mentioned they were acquiring a large bit of acreage adjoining the refuge only to have those hopes dashed when she said they're turning that part into an RV park and other things for humans. The people were friendly and the cages were clean, but they were cages no better than we have in our local zoo (which are also depressing).
  • We took the grandkids there and they loved it! You can get really close to lions, tigers, Jaguars, and some other animals that I can't remember. I would prefer to see the animals and the larger spaces.
