First of all I love wild animals. My favorite are lions and tigers so this visit tops any zoo I've been to. Was able to see them up close (had me a little shaky though to be that close) And to see a liger was icing on the cake. Funny thing though my husband stayed in the car the whole... More

This place was dirty, small and boring. Too expensive for what you see. The staff is friendly though. I will not go back.

This small zoo has many tigers including several white tigers and the largest cat a liger.Most of the animals seemed well cared for. However the facilities with the exception of the bear exhibit are not good, Their is no paved walkways to walk on and only soft drinks so eat before coming out.

Almost all of these animals are kept in enclosures entirely too small and most look as if they are not kept clean. What broke my heart was one particular monkey who sat in a corner and faced the wall and shook the bars. There was a cockatoo that was severely malnourished and missing most of its feathers. This place needs... More

Tiger world was a wonderful experience.... The staff is very helpful. And you can not beat the price. Only $12.00 for adults and $10.00 for children. You can stay only a couple of hours or all day. The tigers are so beautiful. When we were there the tigers were talking to each other between the cages. There are other animals... More

It's been a while since I've visited this place and vowed to never come back but I'm really dismayed it's gotten so many good reviews. I just felt like crying afterwards at the small and unsanitary cages the animals were kept in, causing most of them to pace incessantly. The bears had recently been moved but their new cage looked...

We visited Tiger World while in Charlotte, NC and it was about a 40 minute drive from there, much closer than any of the zoos in the area. It is in an out-of-the-way place and very rustic, but well worth the trip. There were many different tigers, as well as a lot of other animals including grizzly bears, peacocks, monkeys,... More

Not really a zoo, more a rescue facility for large cats, Tiger World is a little known gem only 40 minutes from Charlotte. We visited with our 7 year old grandson on a beautiful fall morning. Because we got there early we had the place nearly to ourselves. There are more tigers than I have ever seen in any one... More

We visited Tiger World as a day trip, along with the Lazy 5 Ranch. The two places were very near and made for a wonderful day. I called Tiger World and made an appointment for a guided tour. They only do tours during the week and are closed on Wednesday's. I am so glad we had a tour, the information... More
