First id like to say the staff was really friendly and welcoming, however the rest of my experience wasn't as pleasing, when my reservations were made for the enrichment tour I didn't quite catch the name of the animal we were going hands on with so I called back within 10-15 mins from the original called and was told it was a Geoffrey's cat which is no bigger than a house cat and "to clarify the hands on" part I was told that I was not going to be able to pick up the cat and I would only be able to make contact if the cat came up to me other than that I could only play with the cat by toys and such. We then decided to cancel our reservations and told we could but would not receive a refund. When we got there we had to sign forms for liability which is understanding, however, the very last statement on said form clarified that we were NOT allowed to take pictures during our tour which was a HUGE disappointment & was also followed by the fact that we had to share our 30 minutes that we payed $100 for with 4 other people. The cat was cute but extremely energetic so the chance to touch him seemed so little not to mention it felt like we were fighting for his attention bc off everyone else in the room that we were not aware we're going to be there. The refuge employees did take pictures that we could purchase after the tour for $20 on a CD which was kinda pricey for the quality of the photos, extremely blurry and repetitive. As for the tour, do not go on a hot day because we only got to see about half the cats due to the heat which you can't blame the cats however thedon't have enough shade

I was on vacation near by and decided to look around for things to do. With limited internet access I didn't get to research it much. As we drove in it appeared small but boy were we wrong. A $20 dollar donation gets you a tour with intimate history of every cat and their personalities. Later, they let you freely walk about the property to spend additional time with your favorite cat. My girlfriend and I loved it. We got many great memories and not to mention photos.

Pretty cool place, hard to know when the cats will be active though. We went late in the afternoon and only 2 or 3 interacted with us. Still awesome if you love big cats!

Amazing place. You will love this place. The cats are well cared for and seemed happy. Max just wanted to play and Bosco was very fun to watch. The bathrooms could use a serious update. The gift shop was great. Can't wait to go back.

My daughter lives in Tyler Texas and took us there mid-October. We loved it. I have had everyone, I can get in touch with, watch Tiger Creek on Youtube. I explain that they are seeing the old cages and the new compounds are now being used. I tell everyone I have found a new Tax Write Off and will be sending funds to ensure this great work continues. PLEASE JOIN ME. Make sure this location is on your bucket list. Easy to find north of I-20 on 69.

We went there with 5 adults and one child 14 months old. We learned that some of the cats react to little kids. The puma was truly interested in the baby. There were several lions make the chuffing sound and roaring talking back to one another. We learned quite a bit and one of our tour guides very nice, intelligent, knew exactly what we wanted to see and even showed us the soon to be opened larger cage. These animals are amazing and gorgeous. I recommend it to every one!
