The guide was very engaging, answered every question we had. it is amazing the work you do with/for the animals. I had 2 17 yr olds with me and they loved every minute from being within 6 feet of a big cat, to watching the siblings bathe each other.
Our guide was great. My daughter and her three friends had a great visit with the big cats. Cannot think of a better way to celebrate her 10th birthday. Ralph was her favorite. Thanks for all you do.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Also very friendly. And the cats are beautiful.
Great tour and information. It was humbling to be this close to these majestic creatures. It was a fun and enjoyable tour and worth the drive.
Love the care you are providing for the big cats. Well-narrated , interesting and informative tour.
The big cats rescue preserve is a wonderful undertaking and the animals all look well cared for and content. It was very warm the day we went and it would be more comfortable if there was a little more shade for the participants and this is only February! I can’t imagine how it would be in the summer time. But all in all a great experience and Kelly was phenomenal!
The guided tour was great. The volunteers were so knowledgeable, very concerned about the animals, and answered any and all questions we had. Cages are large, animals had play things in each cage and everything was very, very clean . This is s super experience for the whole family.
The depth and knowledge of Dr Simba was great during the tour. I liked the small size of the group too. Loved the look of the new facilities and the cats looked well cared for.
Beautiful set up for those Amazing Cats. All involved should be very proud.
Visit was great. It was also great to see how well your animals were cared for.
We really enjoyed seeing the beautiful cats. We were unfortunately at the end of long group, and were constantly admonished for not "keeping up" with the group. We were trying to get our opportunity to get our pictures, but since there was no where for the guests in the beginning of the tour to go ( and still remain on the designated path as we were specifically instructed to do), those of us at the end of the line had to wait our turn for the line to proceed forward and out of our way to snap our pictures. At this time, the Tour Guide would yell out to us to "Keep Up", further frustrating us as we were on the designated path, but weren't allowed to get our turn to take pictures!! A solution could be, after the Tour Guide makes her specific presentation for the cat, ask the group to move forward, to allow room for the people left at the end of the line to get their pictures.
