The experience right from the start was great. Ashlee responded to my emails quickly. All staff were knowledgeable and extremely friendly. This made the experience feel very personable. We had a girls day out and did the "Behind The Scenes" tour. Our guide (sorry I can't remember his name) was really good at explaining things and always making us feel... More

I love going to zoos, I do, honestly. But this this zoo sucked. I felt so bad for the animals, they barely had any space to roam. I felt that the cages were just too small for the cats who could be seen continuously pacing up & down. I do not recommend going to this zoo, EVER. I do not... More

My husband and I stayed in the Jaguar room in Mid October, perfect Fall weather for enjoying these amazing animals. The room decor had such charm and we felt so cosy. What an incredible and eye opening adventure it was for us to watch these large cats relaxing in their enclosures, while other smaller animals roamed freely to feed out... More

Had a fantastic experience at Jungle Cat Zoo. It was really neat having access to the park at night and early morning when the animals are really active. It felt surreal walking around experiencing the noises at night! meeting the animals up close and personal was excellent. They are so well cared for and content. Staff are great and take... More

Whilst I'm not a big fan of zoo's I do fully understand the importance of having them & how they have prevented some animals from extinction etc etc. I bought a annual Groupon family pass (as the single entry family passes had sold out). So decided to take the kids here for the afternoon. There was ample stuff to do... More

My boyfriend and I did the behind the scenes tour, and got to see the wolf pups, lion cubs and the hyena. We had an amazing time, the animals were awesome to play with and pet and the zoo keeper is very knowledgable. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested. We look forward to going back again next year!

Went to Jungle Cat Worldlife park and they have some beautiful animals. The guide is knowledgeable but the stories about extinction and such are depressing.... yes I am aware and ultra sad that I can only see in a zoo in cages... and humans have killed off these beautiful creatures. The park is well maintained but small. The animals are... More

Went in late September 2016. Most cages were WAY too small for the animals, and many of the animals were pacing, which is a classic anxiety response, and shows that the animals are not well emotionally. Also there were few toys in the cages (if any), and no foraging opportunities were seen. Animals were BORED. (Unlike the Toronto Zoo, an... More

My husband treated me to a behind the scenes tour for my 40th birthday. We had such an amazing time in this humble little park. The animals are well cared for and clearly loved by the care takers. We had a closer interaction with them then we found at the Toronto Zoo. Our behind the scenes include interactions with Delilah... More

Despite not liking animals in cages, the animals at Jungle Cat Wildlife Park are well taken care of. We learned that many are being rehabilitated and also there is hope that some will breed. The park is small which makes it a great experience for the smaller children. There is a feeding tour where a guide explains the animal's situation... More
