My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon and it was certainly the experience of a lifetime. Destiny and Heidi went above and beyond our expectations. After being a fan for so many years, I was absolutely thrilled to finally see the facility and meet the cats and staff. I'm already planning our next trip. Thank you CARE!!!

Amazing Stay in the Safari Suite

I stumbled onto this place in early 2019 and thought it would be neat to surprise my husband with something different for our anniversary. It was amazing from the very moment we arrived! There are just no words to describe how CARE made us feel!! The animals are so beautiful and amazing!! You could never have such an up close and personal experience any other place. All the animals have their own little personality and when they look at you it is a feeling like no other. We will always follow Heidi and CARE and continue to visit and support this wonderful cause!!! It was worth every penny spent!! The suites are just beautiful and the view is crazy wild....literally!! Nothing like waking up in the night to the sound of the lions roaring!!! Again just no words to describe this experience!!

Best wedding anniversary EVER!

My husband & I spent our 19th wedding anniversary in the Safari Suite & can't stop talking about it to anyone who will listen! I thought it'd be "pretty cool" but that was an understatement! The time & attention given to us & the way we walked away feeling like we had personally made new friends, was spectacular. Not only do Heidi, Derek & their staff truly C.A.R.E. about these magnificent animals, they're friendly & funny too! We'll be back!

This was one of the greatest experiences we have ever had. If you are worried about the donation,, it is worth every penny and more. Rachel and Heide are amazing and made us feel very special. I wish we lived a little closer so we could return more often. There is love for the animals everywhere and they show it.

My boyfriend and I chose the suites at CARE as a way to celebrate my upcoming college graduation. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, Heidi, Rachel, and the other CAREtakers made us feel very welcomed and at home. Hearing the sounds of the compound at night and watching the snuffle parade from Boomer and Slade during the day were simply magical. After following CARE on social media for a few years and falling in love with the animals, I have also fallen in love with the people at this facility. This little place in Bridgeport, Texas holds a very special place in my heart and I cannot express how grateful we are for this experience. Our every need and our expectations for our stay were truly exceeded. Thank you!

I could write an essay on how WONDERFUL this place is! I've been following CARE for now 4 years! I won the safari trip back in November when they were holding the raffle, planned the trip to go in April. This was a dream of a lifetime to win. I was counting down the days until I arrived. I can't thank them enough for all the wonderful hard work they do every single day for these majestic beauties. Words can't describe how wonderful and amazing it was being there. The cats are truly happy. Seeing them this happy, playing, stalking, talking, purring made my heart so happy. From the time we got there until the time we left, everything was perfect! Rooms were so clean, and so comfortable! Breakfast and dinner were amazing especially eating above the tigers! Can't thank Heidi, Racheal and Morgan for everything they did for us for our stay! I got the opportunity to see the handsome Flash before he left this world and got to meet Tawney's wonderful personality. I was honored to be able to meet both of them and have them touch my heart. As soon as we left, and got on the road, I wanted to just turn around and go back. I miss falling asleep and waking up to Araali and Zuberi late night and early morning roars, having coffee in the morning with Divali and Nadal watching them play. Each animal had their own personality and you end up loving them all!! I will never forget this experience and will defiantly go back! Thank you again for everything!

If you're not planning on going, change your mind

We have been following CARE on social media for a while and were very excited to spend our anniversary surrounded by the animals we have come to love. Heidi and the CARE volunteers went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. Everything we requested prior to our arrival (flowers, cake, champagne) was executed to perfection. From the moment we were greeted and shown to our beautiful room, we felt at home. The rooms were very clean and offered a large variety of amenities. When you arrive at CARE, you immediately feel the love surrounding the animals. We loved our stay so much, that we ended up extending it by another day. I cannot think of a better way to have spent our anniversary, and can't recommend it enough. The whole experience is well worth the money, and we will defintely be back. Thank you to everyone at CARE for looking after us so well.

Two more life-long fans

Dear Heidi and Melanie, I truly cannot thank you enough for my wonderful visit to CARE/ Safari Suites (3/12-3-13). I got a little ping in my heart this morning knowing I wouldn't get to see Boomer and Slade outside my door. I had trouble describing to my friends the size of Chompers. I still can't figure out how a beast as big as Noel crosses her enclosure in an instant without a sound. A trip that has really left me SPEECHLESS. And none of it was possible without your kindness and attention that weekend, and your ongoing dedication and compassion. We are both life-long fans who are determined to make it back out again someday. Best wishes, Emily & Ethan

More than worth the donation

My husband and I live about an hour away from CARE and come for the occasional visit, and we will be the first to tell you that staying a night is the only way to truly experience what the facility has to offer. This is not simply because of all the time afforded to you to spend with all the cats you have grown to know and love, but because of the seamless marriage of a secluded country escape and high luxury. As I commented to Heidi, hospitality veterans would be envious of the design choices, bedding quality, room comfort, cleanliness of the pool and hot tub, serviceware, concierge convenience, attentiveness and attention to detail (despite being busy with the cats)...everything. Nothing is unnecessary, nothing looks tacky, nothing appears out of place with its surroundings. I would pay up to double for such a rare experience that stoked the flames of our romance on our anniversary weekend. At the end of the day, though, make no is all about waking up at sunrise and heading outside in your robe to hear Boomer and Slade chuff "good morning" to you. Will definitely do this again.

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay here! The wildlife is amazing. The people are amazing. I did not know that this should be on my bucket list, but it should be! We will be back! If anyone looking at this review wonders if you should experience this, you should! You won't regret it.
