Now, I do understand that all money raised goes to feed the animals. My issue was the fact that they advertised $10 for adults on their website under events for their Open House Easter Weekend, but yet said it was $15 for adults when we...More

This place is nearly impossible to find. There is no sign on the highway, and the access road (Ernest St.) is at the back of the Arcadia Stockyard auction complex parking lot. About 500ft. in, you'll hit a "driveway" on the right which is labeled...More

Guided tour was very informative, the animals are rescued, and are being well looked after. There was a good variety of animals there and are being well looked after.

These people are doing their best to provide these animals with a safe habitat to live. Please support them by visiting. They are a 501(c)(3) and need your help. Very knowledgeable about the animals and caring.

They are a rescue for exotic animals and it was very interesting, It is operated on donations, no government assistance. The volunteers are local folks.

Nice, clean wildlife refuge with lions, tigers, bears, howler monkeys, peacocks, and other animals. Way out in the middle of nowhere, but worth it. We will be doing their dinner safari, where you feed the animals, then have a light supper at the owners' place.

The Feeding Tours are by appointment. You need 10-20 people or they can group you with another group depending on availability. No children under 12! Give Lynne a call to book!
