Sleep Near Lions and Tigers

Didn't sleep here, but took the walking tour, and highly recommend it! The animal enclosures are clean and the tour guides are very knowledgeable. These rescued animals get to live out their lives in peace. You do pay for the guided, one-hour easy walking tour (approximately $30 for my teen and me) but all the money goes to care for the animals; it is a not for profit organization. Great facility!

Sleep Near Lions and Tigers

Sitting mere feet from tigers, lions, and other big cats is one of the coolest experiences. Go early morning or late afternoon to see feeding times and hear the lions "caroling."
