Big Cat Rescue Day Tour
Meet 100+ exotic cats representing 15 species of wild cat. This is a walking tour. All Cat-a-tats (enclosures) are 1200 square feet to 3 acres of lush tropical landscaping for each of the cats. The tour path winds through 45 acres of these enclosures so that you can stand 3 feet from leopards, lions, tigers and more.
Your guide will tell you about each species in the wild and the threats and challenges they face for survival. Most of the cats rescued were formerly pets because of the poor laws and lack of information available that would prevent people from making such a big mistake. Find out why it never works out for the person or the cat when you see for yourself that they all spray. Your guide will tell you when you are in a spray zone and when to run!
Enjoy a tour specifically geared towards the "under 10's". Get an up-close look at the workings of Big Cat Rescue, and learn about the exotic cats and the other animals that reside here. This tour lasts for approximately one hour.Your guide will know all the fun facts that you will want to share with your friends. Strollers are allowed, but the terrain is dirt. There are barricades around all of the enclosures to keep little ones out of harm’s way, but parents must keep their children under control.

My friend and I were visiting Tampa to go to Busch Gardens so decided to go to the BCS as we both love these majestic creatures. The place is very easy to get to and all the cats are very well looked after. Our guide was very informative and we both enjoyed the walk around and hearing the different cats stories. The gift shop is lovely and the items very well priced and as all the money they make is ploughed back into looking after the cats we both spent quite a bit in there! Well worth the visit.
