Book Visit Now

Embark on a two-hour guided educational visit of the sanctuary and meet lions, tigers, bears, leopards, bobcats, a mountain lion and a serval, along with dozens of ranch animals. Visits are available Wednesday through Saturday, and all ages welcome. You can come as a Member-for-a-Day, or upgrade to the Feed-a-Wild-One experience to feed one of the animals during your visit. Better yet, join us for a Behind-the-Scenes visit and feed ALL of the animals you meet! LTB is a no-contact sanctuary, so you will feed the animals a portion of their regular daily diet with a 3-foot fork from behind a secure fence.

In addition to being home to 19 species, the ranch has a rich history for you to explore. Lions Tigers & Bears is located on what was once a stage coach stop. During your visit you can see the historical adobe structure that still exists today. Click here to learn more about our ranch.

Rules, Regulations and Suggestions
Lions Tigers & Bears has developed these rules, regulations and suggestions to make your visit more enjoyable and to ensure your safety and the safety of our animals.

It is strongly encouraged that payment be made in full at the time of your booking. An additional $10 charge per visitor will be added to payments made at time of check-in.

All guests must check-in with a staff member at the check-in area before beginning their adventure.

All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. No running is allowed at the ranch.

Lions Tigers & Bears is a “No Contact” sanctuary. For your safety and that of the animals, we enforce a strict no-contact policy.  No hands-on animal interactions are offered (after all, a true sanctuary would never do that!). All of our habitats have a secondary perimeter fence which prevents anyone from coming into direct contact with or within three feet of the animals.

Lions Tigers & Bears is located in a high risk fire area, and smoking IS NOT permitted.

We suggest that when you visit Lions Tigers & Bears, you wear layers of clothing for varying temperatures and comfortable shoes for walking on dirt pathways and grass. We also suggest bringing plenty of drinking water for your visit.

You are welcome to bring your cameras. However, all photographs and video taken on LTB premises are for your personal use only and not to be used for commercial or financial gain. All photos taken by on-site staff and volunteers are the property of LTB and may be used on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and television, as well as in eNewsletters and printed marketing materials.

Please do not bring your pets. Pets are not allowed in the sanctuary – not even if you leave them in your car (which is not a good idea anyway!).

Any visitors who choose to not follow our rules will be asked to leave.
