We took our two young (5 & 3 yo) grandchildren here. The kids loved it when the caretakers brought one of the Malayan Tigers out for a treat. It was fascinating being within 3-4 feet of a wild cat. This place is really a center...More

The cats are beautiful! I felt conflicted as many of the cats were in small cages. Several cats were pacing and howling. They didn't seem comfortable however we were told it was near feeding time. Very small facility and shouldn't take more than one hour...More

I have never been this close to such large "Cats". Each one has it's own personality and they display it willingly. We were at the Twilight Tour. Loved watching the Cats play and perform by all their antics. I want to go back for a...More

Who knew there were so many different varieties of Big Cats? This small zoo is wonderful for getting a fairly close look at all kinds of cats. The volunteers are well educated and obviously very dedicated. I love all the walkways and shade trees... EFBC...More
