Great Cats World Park


Nestled into the Siskiyou Mountains in beautiful southern Oregon, and conveniently located along the historic Redwood Highway is Great Cats World Park. The facility occupies 11 acres with room for future expansion. The park opened to the public in 2005 and is currently home to over 50 individual cats representing 17 different species and subspecies.

Not only does this Great Cats organization educate the public and advocate for conservation of the cats worldwide, but it is also actively participating in the preservation of threatened and endangered species. It cooperates with the SSP program, which breeds some of the most endangered cats in the world. This facility focuses on raising public awareness and support through educational demonstrations. Great Cats World Park has one of the largest and rarest collections of wild cat species in the country, with over 17 species on-site, including tigers, leopards, jaguars, and servals.

Visitors can make the most of their trip to Great Cats World Park by taking a guided tour. Talk with the keepers, witness exciting demonstrations, and learn about the collection of exotic cats, all while getting an up close and personal look at them. Benches are located at each exhibit, so visitors can sit and enjoy the beauty of these exotic cats. Wheelchairs and strollers are also available at no cost in order to let everyone enjoy this experience. Tours are ongoing and rotating, so no one is ever late or too early for a personal tour. Great Cats World Park also offers group rates for large families, friends, or co-workers.

Great Cats also offers the rare opportunity to photograph some of the most endangered cats in the world. Photo shoots last for two hours, and the photographer can photograph a minimum of five cats. A keeper escorts the photograph and will get the cats to demonstrate some of their natural behaviors, from runs to climbs, snarls and growls, all while safely separated from the cats. The enclosures have cutouts especially designed to fit a camera lens.

Great Cats also has non-cat hosts to greet visitors on their tour. At any time in the facility, visitors may come across honeybees (as part of a conservation effort), peacocks, and Pike, an African Crested Porcupine,

These rare and magnificent creatures are the feline ambassadors that will turn a visit into an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And visitors will leave knowing how they can help in the survival of the extraordinary wild cats for generations to come.
