The tour itself was good! We saw the cats and the guides seemed knowledgeable, plus I appreciate that they make sure that the animals are not bothered by visitor. They also had water stations for people to stay hydrated. One complain is that we had a 3 month old daughter with us and we had to go on Kids tour where content is made children appropriate, therefore not much talk about how the animals got there (no talk about mistreatment, cross-breeding etc), and I believe that we would have had better experience if we were allowed to go on regular tour - 3 month old does not understand what is said and if she is fussy, it does not matter which group she is in, she would disturb people anyway.

Great cruelty-free way to have your kids learn about big cats! I know this place will help foster conservation and a love of animals.

My family from out of town chose Big Cat Rescue for their outing. We took the Kids tour as we had a 7 and a 9 tear old with us. Everyone was interested in the cats as we saw them. I feel that the tour guide could have spoken more directly to the children and perhaps asked them questions to keep them involved but all in all they did really well. Thank you for all you do.
