Do you love coming to the Sanctuary and wish you could learn more about the animals and our operation? 




Are you coming for the first time and want to get an amazing insider’s view of everything?


The Wild Animal Sanctuary offers private tours for individuals and small groups. Your special tour starts at the Welcome Center and wraps up just beyond the Tiger Roundhouse at our Rest Area/Snack Bar turnaround point, at which point you return on your own via the 1-1/2-mile walkway at your own pace.  


On each step of your journey you’ll be accompanied down our Mile Into The Wild Walkway with one of our Animal Ambassadors, getting an insider’s understanding of the animals – their stories and their lives before and after rescue – and the Sanctuary’s daily operations, as you take in the sights and sounds all around you.  Generally, this portion of your visit with the guide takes about two hours or a little more, so be sure to leave plenty of time for your visit so you don't get rushed.


These special tours are just that – special – so you know you and your group will have a great time learning about everything at the Sanctuary. 


So if you want to have an amazing experience at The Wild Animal Sanctuary, sign up for your personal guided tour today!


Tours are available every day of the week except Wednesday during regular visiting hours - but must be booked at least 48 hours in advance.

In the warmer months, typically May-September, tours are generally only booked first thing in the morning or at the end of the day--to help ensure the best experience possible for guests.

**The Wild Animal Sanctuary does not offer any "behind the scenes" or ground-level tours, nor are guests ever allowed to physically interact with animals. 

Special Guided Tours are available for the following prices:

$100 for the first guest / $100 for each additional guest

Purchasing tours can be done by calling the Sanctuary to schedule and arrange payment over the phone at (303) 536-0118.

All tours must be pre-paid and scheduled – no walk-ins please!


  • Groups with children will need to ensure the children are able to stay focused in order to enjoy and get the most out of your tour.  Years of experience has shown that toddlers do not do well on the tour given their lack of attention span, difficulty in seeing animals in the distance and the length of the tour and walkway.


  • Your group is welcome to bring a picnic lunch, but there is also our Lion's Den Café, Ice Cream Shop as well as a snack bar that offers a wide variety of nutritious food, snacks and beverages onsite.  


We look forward to booking your special tour soon!
