"Excellent day."

Brought this experience for my boyfriend's 21st birthday and he loved it! An unusual yet exciting present. We had a one to one tour with someone who worked there so could easily ask questions and see all the animals we wanted to see. A variety of cats including big and small. Got some amazing pictures and videos, especially of the leopards. My boyfriend chose to feed the tigers, and I got to feed them too! (as the experience is only for one person to feed a big cat). It was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience which left us talking about it for months after! A really great day with great staff and even better animals!
