Big Cat Rescue Description
Prepare to be amazed by the tigers, jungle cats, cougars, snow leopards, and other big cats you'll see on this truly remarkable sanctuary tour. Kids will marvel at the chance to be only a few feet away from the magnificent felines while learning about the native habitats, behaviors in the wild, and care requirements of these rescued cats. Knowledgeable guides tailor each small tour to the interests and ages of participants, sharing insights and information that will captivate kids and parents alike.
Babies: Strollers are allowed on the tour, but only those with rugged wheels are advised. Baby carriers are recommended.
Pre-Teens & Teens: Make your teenager's visit even more memorable by signing kids up for a night or feeding tour ($50 per person) or the Big Cat Keeper Tour ($100 per person).
- Floor-to-ceiling cages. The cats live in fully enclosed cages that are a minimum of 1,200 square feet, allowing visitors to observe the cats' movements while keeping them a comfortable distance away.
- Saturday tours only for young kids. Families with any member younger than 10 that are interested in a group tour must take a 9 a.m. tour on Saturdays (other tours delve into the threats to and health and living conditions of the rescued cats in greater detail). Private tours are available by arrangement.
