Enjoy the Kids Tour at Big Cat Rescue!

If you want to bring children under the age of ten, including infants, this is the only tour available for your group, (other than the much more expensive Private Tour). This is a complete guided tour where children of all ages and their parents can get up-close and learn about exotic cats and other animals.

  • Children under the age of 10 cost $27 each
  • Tour Time is noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Geared toward children under 10 years old.
  • Privately guided small tour groups of 20 or less.

Tour is one hour long & children are expected to behave because this is a working sanctuary and the animals come first. Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian and must behave respectfully toward the animals and others in the group. This is not a zoo where children will be allowed to scream and run wild, but a sanctuary where the animal’s needs always come first.

You are welcome to take photos and video on the tour, but leave the tripods at home, or schedule a photo tour. We ask everyone on the tour to stay together, no smoking, no cell phones and respect the tour guides warnings so that you have the best possible experience.

Paths are frequently muddy so closed toed, old, comfortable shoes are recommended. You may bring your own cold drinks or buy ours but either way, be prepared for the heat.

“It’s one thing to go to Busch Gardens, it’s another to stand four feet from a tiger!” says one Kid’s Tour participant. Come with the whole family and visit Big Cat Rescue today to see your favorite felines in action!

What Is Not Included?

No strollers are available and our paths are earthen.

    The Most Important Thing YOU Can Do to Save Big Cats
    This bill called the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act is the most important piece of legislation to ever be introduced to protect lions, tigers, and other exotic wild cats from being kept as pets and in miserable roadside zoos.
