The facility is smaller than most zoos you will find, but the staff is nice and the animals are well taken care of. Some of the facility was being remodeled/ added onto which made me feel good about their operation. If you want to see some great animals up close, then this is the place you need to see. Be...

If you are an animal/zoo enthusiast, then this is a trip for you! The zoo keeps tigers, lions, leopards, two wolves, two bears, reptiles, and various birds. Most of the animals are rescued, so it makes you feel really good when you see how well the staff cares for them and how content they are. We were in the middle... More

We visited during the Halloween season and loved all the great decorations. it took about 2 hours to see it all but the animals all looked healthy and very well cared for. It was the closest I've ever been to a tiger! We lucked out and it was feeding time (about 11 am on a Saturday) which meant all the... More

Went no knowing what to expect how I was surprised and how much we enjoyed being up close with animals. Understanding that many animals have been in tough situations I applaud their efforts to save and rehab so many beautiful animals. Worth the trip

It was fascinating to be able to be close to the Tigers, and other animals. If you love seeing exotic animals and being up close this is the place to go. Better close up than what you would see at Disney's animal kingdom. Looking forward to another visit next time when they open up Australlian section.

My husband and I visited Tiger World for the first time August 15 and we enjoyed our visit tremendously. I had researched their website thoroughly before we went and found out the reason Tiger World is in existence. When seeing the real thing, we were both hooked. We adopted a white lion and a white tiger. As a result of... More

We took our 2 year old grandson to Tiger World and he had a great experience. It is a small "zoo" with rescued wild animals. There are bears, tigers, lions, monkeys, birds etc. A comfortable walk around the area allows you to view the animals closely. I recommend allowing about an hour of time to see all of the animals....

We went to Tiger World mid-week with our children, ages 16 to 28, plus our son-in-law and 16-month-old grandson. Everyone enjoyed our time there. They have everything from parrots to lions. Most of the animals are in outdoor enclosures that were small enough to allow us to see every animal, but large enough to allow the animals room to roam.... More
