Public Tours - Conservators Center

Public Tours

Our wildly up close tours are available on weekends and on select holidays year-round. Reservations Required

On a tour of our park, you’ll walk the three-quarter-mile path with a highly-trained guide and gain an understanding of each species’ ecological importance. You’ll also get to know each animal’s individual personality and story. We’re about reconnecting you to wildlife—so every tour is a conversation.

Adventure Tours

In the same time it takes to see a movie, you can discover Caswell County’s best-kept secret. Great for first-time visitors, over 5,000 guests chose an Adventure Tour in 2017—and met 400-pound lions from 5 feet away. Go on an expedition...connect intimately with nature...and support a top-rated nonprofit.

Meet A Big Cat

Yes, you can really help us feed a lion or a tiger part of its diet for the day—all for a good cause. Bask in the attention of a big cat as a trained staff member guides you in treating them to a few choice morsels of meat. Whether you choose this experience as a tour add-on, or you’ve visited before and want something standalone, you’ll go home all smiles.

Treat Safari

Why is it important that our 9-foot-tall white tiger knows how to stand on his hind legs? How do you keep 14 serval cats entertained and happily drooling? If you’re itching to visit us again, a Treat Safari is a different experience from our other tours: explore our methods of keeping our residents well-adjusted and healthy as our guides give them meat, stinky toys, and other fun items.

Twilight Tours

Enchanting. Engaging. Unique. On a Twilight Tour, you’ll explore our park with our guides as the sun goes down—and come away inspired. Our species often become talkative at dusk, and they’ll be eager to meet you as they gear up for evening play. When you stare back into the eyes of a big cat in the rapidly-dimming light, you’ll know there’s nothing quite like it.
Tickets: $23 - $26 Returns with warmer weather!
