Where are we going today?

ROAR! Can you hear that kids? That could be the sound of the lion you are about to meet! It might also be the cougar...or the tiger....or the jaguar.....!

Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park is filled with nearly 180 animals from all over the world! With 60 species for the kids to see up close, it's a great learning experience for so many creatures - not just the big cats themselves!

At only 45 minutes from Toronto, it's an easy and fun day out from the city. Here, you can walk at your own pace around the park, and see all the animals who are waiting to say hello! As you walk, there are interpretive signs posted throughout the zoo, so you can really learn about the creatures, their habits and habitats as you go

Don't miss the daily feeds at Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park, because every day at 1:30pm you can see and learn all about these amazing creatures feeding habits!

There are modern viewing platforms and observation stations too, which give unique view points of the entire zoo.

Additional Behind The Scenes encounter options allow such experiences as feeding lemurs, walking with tigers or stroking wolves! There are over night programs, as well as safari camps and feeding tours, so you can immerse yourself in the animal world as much or as little as you like!

Great animal fun in Ontario - and the only thing missing is you!

    We had a great time at this small private zoo yesterday. For $45 for a family of four (cheaper if you buy online) we spent 2 1/2 hours seeing some rare animals and watched the feeding time. For twice that price, the zoo has a "behind the scenes" tour that puts you in contact with species including a Serval cat, the hyenas (believe it!), and the lemurs. We'll do it next time.

    I agree with the earlier comments about the small enclosures, especially for the wolves. But as one reviewer put it the animals are in good shape and seem happy. And where...Read More

    Jungle Cat World is a deceptively large park with many beautiful and well cared for animals. I was taken aback at first by the somewhat small enclosures which they are kept in, however between the enrichment for them in the park, the affection the animals show towards their keepers, and the general behaviour of these animals it is clear that they are happy; there are far more important factors to a creature's well-being than simply the size of the enclosure. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and hope to visit again soon.

    I had so much fun at Jungle Cat World! We got to feed the animals and take pictures with them and it is sooo much better than the Toronto Zoo! I LOVE JUNGLE CAT WORLD!

I agree with the earlier comments about the small enclosures, especially for the wolves. But as one reviewer put it the animals are in good shape and seem happy. And where else are you going to see both snow leopards and Amur leopards - there are only about 120 of the latter in the entire world! Small enclosures are a problem with zoos everywhere; the Toronto zoo effectively killed off half their elephants before shipping the rest away. I've seen worse crowding of big animals in zoos in Shanghai and Tokyo.

It's only been a day, but my six year old son's already asked to go back.
