Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! If you are looking for a super cool vacation idea, why not experience Africa in the Ozarks at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge? It's located just outside of Eureka Springs and you can actually stay the night there.

They have everything from adult-only Safari Lodges to family-friendly bungalows and tree houses to tent and RV spaces. You can get a better look at the accommodations here.

Each night's stay also includes admission into the park to see all the animals. I have a friend who went and how amazing it was to hear some of the animals at night but to also be able to watch the animals at different times throughout their day.

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is a nonprofit organization so the cost of your stay goes toward the care of these beautiful animals.

Did you know that COVID-19 can be transmitted to Big Cats? That is why they are taking extra measures to ensure the health of their animal residents.
