Many people are familiar with our “famous BLT” (Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger) who occupy the Clubhouse in their large habitat. What some people do not know is that Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary has about 1,500 other “club members” living in the 250-acre sanctuary in Locust Grove, Georgia which is about 45 minutes south of Atlanta, Georgia.

As for our #BLT, this unusual trio came to Noah's Ark in 2001 through the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) as bottle-fed cubs. All three are male and they live together, sleep together, and even eat together as a family. Leo is an African lion, but has no mane due to being neutered at an early age. Shere Khan is the tiger, and Baloo is an enormous cinnamon-faced North American black bear. "We just don't think you'll find this combination of animals living together anywhere else in the world," assures Jama Hedgecoth, founder and director of Noah's Ark. We would love for you to come to visit us here at Noah's Ark Clubhouse and say hello to Baloo, Leo, Shere Khan and all their friends.

Perhaps while you are here you would love to have a "behind the scenes tour" known as "The Walk On The Wild Side" tour (WOW). For just $75 per person (tax deductible), you can have a behind the scenes tour to learn about each animal and their story. This tour is perfect for the avid amateur photographer or those who just want to have a personally guided tour and be within just a couple of feet of a tiger, bear or lion. If conditions are favorable, enjoy a personal, up close encounter with our sweet little capuchins. These tours are provided Tuesday through Saturday at 11:00 AM. Reservations are required and should be made at least 48 hours in advance. There is a minimum of two per tour and a maximum of 10 (no children under 12 are allowed to take the tour at this time). To make your reservation today, contact Selena at 770-957-0888 Ext. 232.
