When my son said he wanted to go to the National Tiger Sanctuary in Branson I rolled my eyes not expecting to enjoy it at all. We've been to zoos. Wait! I was totally and wonderfully surprised! I enjoyed it even more than anything else we did. The guide was engaging, friendly, and very knowledgeable. She knew the history of each animal, where they came from, their physical and emotional conditions, how they were being rehabilitated, and how they care for their individual needs. We were up close and personal with the animals while being very safe, respectful for their space, and not touching them. Since returning home I can't stop telling people about our experience there.

Such beautiful, majestic animals! We really enjoyed the personal attention on the feeding tour. Our guide was awesome and answered everyone's questions. She was incredibly informative and it was very easy to tell she is passionate about helping the tigers.

It was a very fun, educational, very well maintained, and clean place. The staff were very friendly and greeted us with a cheerful and excited attitude. The tour guide was seriously knowledgeable and well trained in the different species as well as able to interact with them. The animals were well fed and taken care of.

The sanctuary is a great place to visit. We did the walking tour and had a wonderful guide. The big cats enjoyed the attention and we had the benefit of the fact the cats had just finished eating. Basheer was the highlight and had us enraptured with his antics. The tickets are slightly highly priced and during the wait for the tour there is not much to do. But a must see!
