My daughter loves cats of all sizes, so she decided we needed to see Tiger World. The cats are truly big, and beautiful. But there are more than tigers. Wolves, bears, monkeys, lions, and more. The work the caregivers do for and with these animals is amazing. All volunteers, taking care of emotionally and physically "damaged" animals. Definitely an amazing... More

I have never been to an animal sanctuary before and I thought this was very cool. Many of the enclosures offer as much room for the animals as the San Diego zoo (which we visit yearly & my mom is a member of). The animals seem happy & content and the enclosures are clean. They were working hard to build... More

Wonderful time! Spent many hours walking through the "park like" zoo watching the animals. I was amazed how close we were able to get up to cages to watch the animals. The animals have come to Tiger World from ppl who no longer could care for their wild animal nor should they even have had then too begin with. I... More

Tiger World is amazing! It's the best Saturday afternoon I've spent in a really long time. The staff is extremely kind, friendly, and very knowledgeable. It wasn't too crowded so we really got to see and appreciate all of the animals. The reptile house was fantastic! I'm not at all a fan of snakes but the volunteers who were there... More

The final stop on our trek to explore middle NC was Tiger World.  This is an amazing nonprofit that rescues large cats and other wild animals from stupid owners, bad zoos and just plain mean people.  The walk thru is short but a project well worth seeing and supporting. A new bear area was not yet open because they were... More

Today was our first trip to Tiger World. Loved it, the animals all looked very healthy and during feeding time it was obvious the staff worked to make sure it went smoothly. The area is very well maintained, the staff very helpful and friendly. An answer was given to every question we asked, never told us "I don't know". We... More

My family took me to the evening feeding for my birthday. It was a very enjoyable evening. The staff are all dedicated to the animals and also very knowledgeable. This was our third visit and while the tours are great the feeding was even more so. I would highly recommend this as a family activity. The two new kangaroos were... More

I didn't know what to expect, but this place packs over 30 big felines all in good conditions and well taken care of. I enjoyed the tour and the staff was very friendly and dedicated to those animals. Really enjoyed it and hope anyone who has a chance to visit supports and enjoys it as well!

Nice guides and pretty tigers. Bears are so awesome! Grandma liked the huge white lion and red faced baboon.

This was our second visit and really enjoyed it. The only disappointment was it was hot and the animals weren't very active. I strongly recommend if you are in the area make this part of your trip.
