Special Tours

There are many great ways to be introduced to the cats of our Cat Haven, but these experiences typically do not include physical interaction with any of our cats.

We are open to the public and we do many guided tours each day to be introduced to our 13 species of exotic and endangered cats.  These tours are $15/adults and $10/kids ages 4-12 and kids under the age of 4 are free.

Private Guided Tours

Our standard guided tours are in done in groups which can include people from many different smaller groups.  We also offer private guided tours that will only include the people from your family/group and our guide.  The minimum group size for a private guided tour is 6 people (if you have less than 6 paying people and would still like to do a private guided tour, you can pay for six tickets).  Tickets are $25.00 per person regardless of their age.  All guided tours are approximately 60-90 minutes long along our 1/4 mile path and there is no age limit.

Twilight Tours

Twilight Tours are held twice a year and are adults-only events held from 5pm to 8pm.  These evenings include a nice dinner, a chance to free-walk our trail to watch cats for as long or as little as you like as well as an invitation to join us to see enrichment times with many of our cats which is a great time to see them swimming, jumping, playing and destroying their new toys.  Twilight Tours tickets are $40 for members and $75 for non-members, another great reason to purchase a membership.

Behind the Scenes

We also do “Behind the Scenes” tours where you have a chance to shadow one of our keepers and may get to see food prep, some enrichment, how cats are fed/cleaned, etc.  Behind the Scenes tours are for ages 16 and up and are available only with purchase of select yearly memberships.

Breakfast with the Cats

Want to see some of our favorite cats eat breakfast?  Do a Breakfast with the Cats tour and you may have the opportunity to help us prepare a bowl or two for our favorite cats (or at least watch).  See what carnivore breakfast looks like (have you ever wondered what they eat or how much?).  See a few of our cats get breakfast and watch them eat while learning about the cats and their eating habits.  Enjoy a continental breakfast at the Lion enclosure while watching them wake up and get ready for the day.  Breakfast with the Cats tours begin at 9am and advance ticket purchase and scheduling is required.  Tickets are $75.00 each.  Ages 16+ with parent or 18+.

VIP Tours

VIP Tours take you behind the scenes with Dale (our founder) or Wendy (our president) for a couple of hours.  Dale and Wendy are “mom” and “dad” to most of the cats here at Cat Haven and, while every tour is different, you may

see a cheetah run, cats with baby bottle treat time, special photo ops, enrichment play time, and if we have cubs you may see feeding times and play time.  This is the best way to see the most at Cat Haven and are held twice a month and strictly limited to a maximum of six guests per VIP tour.  VIP tours are $250.00* per person and minimum age is 16 years of age.

*Note:  VIP tour ticket price includes a $100.00 per ticket non-refundable deposit.  If you cancel your tour at least one week in advance of the scheduled date we will refund only the amount in excess of the $100.00 deposit.  Any cancellations the week of the scheduled date are completely non-refundable.  Project Survival’s Cat Haven reserves the right to refund or reschedule any tours that Cat Haven requires to be rescheduled due to weather, animal health, or act of God.
