I enjoyed the tour and the stories about the animals. It brings awareness to the growing problem of exotics in captivity.

I have always wanted to go here. I am a leopard enthusiast. I think they are incredibly beautiful creatures and to be able to see them up close was wonderful. They have background stories on a lot of the cats and some had me tearing up. Had to keep myself from crying in front of the group of strangers! It makes it more personal. The guides are there to ask questions and give you a ton of information. It was great and i would recommend for anyone any age to go!

The mid-day tour was great, and the guide (Denny) was excellent! Fascinating stories about how the animals came to be there. The fact that it was mid-day meant most of the cats were resting in the shade though. The feeding tour would be better to see them in action. Keep in mind it's not a circus- it is a rescue. The volunteers and staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Great place with good and educational staff. Learned alot about the cats and about how they are treated. The laws of american are insane on this area about keeping large cats. The day was very hot, but the small tour had water refills available along the tour.

wonderful sanctuary

The Big Cat Rescue is a great place to be able to see these beautiful creatures in a relaxing environment for them. Even though they are not roaming "free" they are safe and protected from those who abuse, neglect and use them for their own purposes. The Big Cat Rescue does a great job caring for these animals in their remaining days. I love this place and Have taken my family there and will continue to bring friends and family there to see these beautiful animals for years to come. Thank you Big Cat Rescue for all that you do.

Wonderful tour! My only advice is wear tennis shoes and don't go after it rains. Most of the tour path is dirt and it gets muddy. They provided ponchos for us for free because it was drizzling. Highly recommend!

Big Cat Rescue is a great organization but the wait for a group was long and boring plus no where to sit. The volunteers and tour guide are courteous and patient.

Holy CAT!

We were processed quickly and the tour went like clockwork. My mother was returning after 15 years and they had a golf cart available which made it very accessible to her. The staff was knowledgeable. The audio tour fantastic. THough it was August it was surprisingly pleasant under the trees. The place is clean and the cats are obviously happy. They came to greet us, some slept, though close enough to get a good look at them and some, being cats, were seeing us but hiding from our view. LOVED it. Doing great work there. Also Zerve really worked with us when one of our family could not make the event and they refunede their ticket within minutes on line! Great day.

Did not like prerecorded presentations.
Mon, Aug 11  3:00 PM alfredroni Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
A great cause and we're glad our (very pricey) cost of admission is going to a good cause, but the tour did not meet expectations. The prerecorded presentations were poorly done. The presentations centered too much on sappy sob stories of how the each animal got to the zoo. Need to talk about the animals themselves. The recordings may work for a website, but don't work when the live animal is present. "Cat XYZ loves is lively and loves to play with her ball" does not work when the XYZ is fast asleep right in front of you. The guide was not enthusiastic. Describing the enclosures as 'spacious' is very close to a lie.

My son ( 12) asked a ton of questions and we learned a lot. Had such an awesome experience Getting to see the big cats up close and playing with the enrichment toys we got to help make. Highly recommend this tour, worth every penny and felt good to be helping the big cats. Really enjoyed The gift shop too. Very reasonable prices.
