what to expect

This is as "behind-the-scenes" as it gets! You'll begin this off-road journey by traveling through our old barn - where you'll find some interesting animals - leading you to our Park owners' backyard where it all began years ago. There, you'll get the rare opportunity to see meet our off-exhibit African Lions up-close.  

In addition, you'll get to see our Amur Leopard; the most endangered big cat in the world and learn all about her story and species from our knowledgeable staff.

This tour is for all the journey junkies who like to take the road less traveled. That being said, we recommend wearing shoes that are comfortable to walk in. 

Tips to know


I highly recommend this tour, if you're debating whether to do it or not, debate no more. Just do it.

Conservation Corner

You’ll meet the most endangered big cat in the world while on this tour. The Amur leopard is found along the border of Russia and China and there are believed to be less than 50 left in their native range. You can help by supporting facilities who are actively breeding Amur leopards and helping to preserve the population.
