Everyone has a story, and that holds true for animals too! At Cat Tales Zoological Park where most of the beautiful creatures here have been rescued. Other were transferred or born within the park, but each creature has a story to tell, and it's a great way for kids to realize that animals are just as important as anything else on this planet, and we have to look after them!
Whether you are about to experience Cat Tales for the first time, or if you have been 100 times, there will be something new to experience on each visit! Here, you can walk within 8 ft of the animals, and learn all about them.
You can take a tour of the park on your own, and just learn from all the informative signs that are located around the park. Many of the families, however, choose to enjoy a guided tour, which means you can really immerse yourself in the experience and ask as many questions as you like!
Have you ever wanted to hand feed a lion? Or a tiger? Or a bear? Oh my! To make your day extra special, just purchase a "Treat Bag: and enjoy your own Big Cat and Bear Adventure that allows kids over 8 years to hand feed these beautiful animals (through the public barrier fence of course!)
You never know, at Cat Tales the kids might be inspired to learn about conservation, and endangered species! It's a beautiful day out with beautiful creatures, so why not make your next day out a WILD one!
The big cats are waiting!
