Overview

This is a non-profit organization. Is listed as a zoo, but it is more educational. They rescue Lions, Tigers, and Leopards. They have night tours, and morning feeding tours. You can buy a meal [a chicken] which they will feed to one of the big cats. When that 4-wheeler comes by, all the big cats are at attention. It really is a great experience. Barb

This was a great little place. It seems they really care about the animals. It’s a nice place for a walk, picnic etc. I would definitely recommend this place for a visit!

This was our second visit to this animal attraction outside of Wisconsin Dells. Full disclosure, I think tigers are as magnificent and beautiful as the animal kingdom has to offer. The Big Cats are about a 20-25 minute drive from the Dells. There is a...More
