Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary - Review

The initiative was taken around 30 years ago by a nature lover Curator Curt to create something so beautiful and exotic. The mission was to conserve the lovely big cat species rather tigers. As you come here you can expect to see these mighty and gorgeous creatures in a large number. Starting from the large ones to the cute cubs, the black as well as white ones, here you will see tigers from all over the world, especially Africa.

The park was declared a non- profit organization after a few years of its establishment and is still only organized by volunteers. This is no doubt one of the must-visits in the city where you can have the closest encounters with tigers.

  • This place was AWESOME I saw many cats in the place. I love how well their taken care of and how loved they all are. When the volunteer walked to clean some things the black panther started to purr and rubbed up against the cage. It was amazing how close they are to these animals. All the animals are beautiful and well taken care of. They get all the food they need and all of the medical care that they need to live long happy lives. I highly recommend it.

  • The place was great... enjoyed the tour, my little loved all the big cats. It was informative and the staff and volunteers very personable and pleasant. I would suggest anyone to go and have a look. The work they are doing is amazing and honorable. My lack of 5 stars is the only draw back, the muck. It is a wetland area, so after it rains, there's puddles of water and mud galore. However, that said, it shouldn't sway you from going. They have a water hose to rinse off, so no tracking mud to your car.

  • This is one of if not my favorite place in Jacksonville. If you like big cats there is no other place. If you don't care about big cats it's still amazing. You can feel the tigers and lions roar. The staff is great with the animals and if you get a chance go for one of the night feedings. The owner gets in the enclosure with the tigers. It's crazy but they love him and haven't killed him yet.

  • We had a great time. The night feeding are great. There’s enough space so you don’t feel cramped. Perfect for families. The tours aren’t rushed. Very informative. Please dress appropriately especially if it’s raining. You will get dirty. However DONT let that keep u from going. This place is amazing. You have the freedom after the tour to go back and look at your favorites(animal) which is definitely a plus. All said and done, we had an amazing time and I HIGHLY recommend this place!!!!

  • Not many people know about this place, very less advertised but I definitely recommend this Wildlife tour. You will get to see all the big cats and the King of the jungle and few other wildlife there. Also the best time to see the Tigers active is when they are being fed which is during the night. During the day time, you will find them mostly resting or less active. Definitely worth the experience.
