Educational / Group Visits - Lions Tigers & Bears

Educational Visits are scheduled Tuesday through Saturday, depending on availability. We recommend scheduling your visit in the morning since this is when our animals are the most active. We can accommodate large groups, but prefer groups of 30 participants at one time.

Call (619) 659-8078 and select option 2 to schedule a visit for your group.


Your visit starts with an introduction to each of our big cats. You will learn each of their rescue stories and general facts about each cat species. Then there is a short break which allows for questions to your guide and feedback from your group. Next your group will move to our domestic animals and we’ll talk about the similarities and differences between how you treat the exotic big cats and how you treat domestic animals.


We can accommodate 15 passenger vans, charter buses, etc. No yellow school buses please.
