Definitely a unique experience and opens your eyes to the importance of Society realizing these animals are wild and not meant to be domesticated or exploited.

Had a great day on the tour and my mom won a raffle to feed two of the tigers (from a stick, several feet away)! Great organization, highly recommend a visit.

Seeing what this organization does for animals is incredible and worth every penny. They give less fortunate animals a second chance and truly do whatever they can to make sure they have the best lives possible.

One of the best places I have taken my kids. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day. The education on animal treatment was very interesting.

We have been repeat visitors for several years and look forward to each visit. A chance to get upfront and personal with the cats and bears. The property is always well maintained and the keepers are very knowledgeable with facts about each animal.

I like the Ayres Lodge 1251 Tavern Rd in Alpine which is about 15 minutes away, I'm sure it would be a fairly inexpensive "Uber" ride and worth the ride. Also, Alpine is about 45 minutes from downtown San Diego, CA... More

Groupon had a discount for feeding and it is so worth it. I felt sorry for those on our tour who did not get to feed as it's not just one piece but many
