Great Cats World Park was established in 2005 and crafted from the ground up to be a place where people can see cats of all sizes, from all over the world, and learn about the special and important place they hold on our planet. Apex predators are an integral part of a healthy ecosystem, and from the powerful Lion to the elusive Geoffroy’s Cat, the felids are among the most powerful, most efficient, and deadliest predators on earth.
Since opening to the public in 2005 the Park has hosted more than 115,000 visitors. Nestled into the Siskiyou Mountains and situated along the historic Redwood Highway in beautiful Southern Oregon, the mild climate and beautiful surroundings create a lovely backdrop for one of the largest and most diverse collections of exotic cats to be found anywhere.
The fully guided tours both educate and entertain. Our mission is to introduce as many guests as possible to our feline ambassadors and to help raise public awareness and support for many of these rare and endangered cats. The tour guides interact with the cats, bringing out their natural and instinctive behaviors through positive reinforcement and the bond of familiarity allowing visitors an up close and personal experience that is truly unique.
Great Cats World Park is currently home to 45 individual cats, representing 16 different species.
