Wonderful experience.

What a wonderful day. Learnt so many things about big cats, but also the work of the sanctuary and its staff. The two wardens that I had were very friendly and knowledgeable. From the welcome I had, the front of house team, the lunchtime buffet, made all the more enjoyable. I will admit it was tiring for me, it made me appreciate how hard the wardens worked.

I don’t believe you could get the quality of experience with access to such brilliant cats anywhere in the world. The knowledge of the teams was excellent and the cats were breathtaking! A truly memorable experience that can be cherished forever.

Ranger for the day. Great to be up close with the big cats seeing behind the scenes and helping to muck out with giant pooper scoop preparing their feed and getting to hide it. Lunch was good and shout out to amazing rangers Hannah & James for their insightful knowledge. Great experience never to be forgotten. Thank you big cat sanctuary

A day to remember

Such an amazing experience, the keeper I was with was passionate about his work and the animals, was full of information. The animals are happy and treated brilliantly. Hand feeding the tigers was incredible and going into the cheetah enclosure was the best day of my life. Would strongly recommend this to anyone as the centre is completely charity based and the money is vital to ensure it stays open. If you love animals then don't hesitate just do it :)
