Customer Testimonials

I have been bringing my entire team of 45 associates and guest to Tara Wildlife for 5 years now.  When we drive up the gravel driveway and enter the gates of Tara it always amazes me how relaxed I feel and that is just the beginning.  Tara is a great place to bring your associates to team build, have meetings and most importantly enjoy each other’s company.  One of the things that I love most about Tara is the staff. They make it so easy to plan a meeting and make it a FUN environment for everyone.  Anything we have ever asked for has been done (movie night, popcorn, crawfish boil, bus ride through the property, live auction, etc) and when we show up we are greeted by a team of staff who help us unload and set up – – really, they truly are an amazing group to work with!   Thanks to Tara and all the staff for providing us a great place to bring our team – – we are looking forward to many more memories in the years ahead!

We have found Tara to be a great place to hold meetings and training events! The peaceful location is beautiful and the meeting facilities are just what we need. Tara is a haven for those who love the outdoors, like to do a little fishing, admire the décor from a hunter’s point of view, enjoy gathering areas where a game of some sort is almost always on TV and retire at night to a nice, quiet room.

Thanks for all you do to accommodate us. We can’t say enough good things about Tara and the staff and how well you take care of us!
