| February 5, 2023 | 0 Comments

San Diego’s Lions, Tigers & Bears, an accredited big cat and exotic animal sanctuary, is offering Valentine’s Day activities for couples, friends and families – for the adventurous type, the romantic type – or both. 

Impress your Valentine with an “un-fur-gettable” overnight stay at White Oak Wild Nights, the sanctuary’s on-site luxury retreat overlooking the vast country meadow and big cat habitats. Featuring two bedrooms, one bathroom, a jacuzzi hot tub and outdoor kitchen and firepit, the White Oak Wild Nights is a romantic and enchanting Valentine’s Day gift idea. For a limited time, all bookings made (or gift certificates purchased) through Tuesday, February 14 will include a complimentary bottle of champagne and box of chocolates upon check-in. All guests must be 21 or over. 

Those looking for a daytime adventure can book a two-hour guided visit and spend time with their valentine(s) while encountering exotic animals that have been rescued and given forever homes in the wide-open habitats at the sanctuary. The 65-plus animals residing at Lions Tigers & Bears include retired circus animals, survivors of inhumane photo and cub petting opportunities, and abandoned or illegally owned big cats, bears and ranch animals. Guided visits are offered Wednesdays through Saturdays and gift certificates are also available for purchase. 

“Whether you visit us in February or purchase a certificate to come out another time, Lions Tigers & Bears is the perfect adventure for friends, family and loved ones to come out and experience the tranquility our sanctuary offers,” said Bobbi Brink, founder and director of Lions Tigers & Bears. “Visitors love to see our rescued resident companions, including tigers Moka and Nola, splash in their pool, enjoy their mealtime and discover enrichment and toys.” 

Guided visits and stays at White Oak Wild Nights can be reserved online or by calling 619-659-8078. All proceeds benefit the rescued animals, providing food, enrichment, habitat maintenance, veterinary care and more.

The exotic animal rescue nonprofit, led by Brink, has coordinated rescues for more than 1,100 big cats, bears, wolves, and other exotic animals across the U.S. in need of permanent refuge and lifetime homes at reputable sanctuaries, including Lions Tigers & Bears. Guests can book visits and become members. For more information about donations, volunteering or booking a visit, go to
