Big Cat Rescue Kids Tour

Enjoy the Kids Tour at Big Cat Rescue! If you want to bring children under the age of ten, 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 $19 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.
