A friend and I took the night-time "Feeding Tour" in September 2012. What an incredible experience! We spent 3 hours with the staff and volunteers, observing from a few feet away while the big (and small) cats enjoyed their dinner. We learned a lot about the cats' background, care, and habits (most useful tip: step to the side, not back, when the cat sprays!). Some of the tigers and lions had to be hand-fed through the fence -- the big babies. Hearing the cacophany of roars in the "Surround sound" area was truly amazing. My friend, whose husband was concerned about her safety on the tour, sent him a fabulous video of the "talking" cats, assuring him that she was safe. I have been on photo safari in Africa, seeing lions and leopards in the wild, and the In Sync experience was just as special and impactful. I was impressed that the animals were so well-cared-for and loved. The staff and volunteers were knowledgeable, dedicated, and friendly. I highly recommend the feeding tour or any of the other tours. Love the photos and blog posts on the FB page, too!
