Trip Report Colorado - Wild Animal Sanctuary

Jump to last reply

I have written several times in the past about my visits to the Wild Animal Sanctuary located outside Denver.
www.fodors.com/community/united-states/lions-and-tigers-and-bears-oh-my.cfm

I made another trip today and the improvements since my trip last thanksgiving are amazing. The 'Mile into the Wild Walkway' is almost complete. The most recent extension opened 3 weeks ago and the last of the current project will open in a couple of weeks.

When we first went in 2009, you could only really observe the lions and tigers well. Now the bears, wolves, and smaller animals (fox,lynx,bobcat) are easy to observe.

We went on a Saturday morning when the animals were being fed so most were very active as they saw the 'chuck wagon' coming.

The bears were very active - saw two grizzlies 'sumo wrestling' for quite a while. The tigers were very active and vocal.

Admission is still only $10 for adults while I would say the value is at least twice what it was.
We spent about 2 hours. I could have stayed longer but 'the Stomach' - a.k.a. my son - needed to be fed.

The website was updated a few months ago and is very well designed.
