Where are we going today?

There are so many beautiful animals in the world, and unfortunately some aren't treated the way they should be. Luckily, there are animal sanctuaries such as Noah's Lost Ark that takes in unwanted an abused exotic animals, and gives them a safe forever home - and you can visit!

Noah's Lost Ark is a non-profit organization, that relies solely on admissions to keep the sanctuary going, so a visit on your next family day out will be directly helping the animals you will be meeting - so they need you!

There are some gorgeous animals at Noah's Lost Ark, and what's great for kids is that they can really connect with the animals, and they all have a story of their own. You might want to read about Hawk the grand lion, or LuLu and Lexus, the playful cubs.

Bubba the Tiger was rescused from an abusive owner, and now can't wait to say hi to his new friends that come and visit! Have you ever heard of a liger? Well, they are a combination of tigers and lions, and from Sophie to Kira, and even Keenya, they are so beautiful to look at!

The sanctuary is where kids can come face to face with gorgeous cougars, leopards, and even wolves and foxes!

Have you ever seen a bear up close? They might not look so bad when you know you're looking Heather and Bart in the eye, and kids can really see how much personality they have.

They are so much more than animals, and Noah's Lost Ark can give kids an invaluable lesson on not just the animals themselves, but why it's so important to look after the wildlife we have on the planet. 

So let's go and have that WILD family day out with some beautiful animals that are just waiting for your visit!

    Love the whole adorable thing this place has going on! You can get super close with some amazing critters. I personally just couldn't handle all the LITTLE kids squealing but that can't be helped in a place like this!

    This place really beat our expectations. We took our one year old and she loved petting the animals and seeing "kitty's" (tigers) so close up. I don't believe I have ever seen a tiger that big or that up close before and I've been to many big town zoos. The price is a little high but when you try to imagine the cost of upkeep (esp. when they don't receive gov. funding which I love) then it's hard to understand why they don't charge more. Did I mention there are no crowds...a huge plus for me. A great experience for anybody. A hidden gem to be sure....Read More

    I was very, very impressed. I've never been so close to such majestic animals. It was surreal. You really understand how just magnificent they are. The sanctuary does wonderful things.

    I was very moved and hope to be back again soon. There is a true peace in walking among earth's most majestic creatures.

    I can't wait to bring my nephew!

    This place was really awesome. I've never seen the big cats so close before! They were only about 10 feet away. The petting zoo was very cute too. Well worth the $8 to get in and well worth the cause. We should respect all life.
