Tiger World is an animal conservation and educational center dedicated to rescue, rehabilitation, and preservation of exotic animals. We are open to the public for educational guided tours and walkabout self-guided tours. Tiger World is a different kind of Zoo. Our tours personally guide visitors throughout the preserve learning about each animal. You see them in a natural setting and have the opportunity to observe them playing, swimming, eating, sleeping, and interacting with their handlers.

We had an amazing visit today to Tiger World. By far the most beautiful big cats I've seen who are so lovingly cared for. This facility is ALL donation based and is not for profit. They truly care for these animals. HIGHLY recommend it!

Stopped in for a Saturday afternoon. Very enjoyable! They have many white tigers, along with lions, wolves, bears, monkeys, birds and turtles. Buy some feed and feed some of the birds. Staff very informative about animals. They have bathrooms and gift shop. Will go again.

Awesome wildlife preserve set up as a safe and friendly zoo. I have been there twice -once when they had Ligers and the other time during their Halloween set up. Both times were awesome and relaxing. I really like what they are doing here and highly recommend visiting!

What away to kill time, visit a tiger. The animals were in great shape and looked happy. My husband and I had never seen so many big cats in one place. Then there were the bears, swans, an owl, singing dogs, wolves and all the other animals. Worth the trip and more.

Loved Tiger World! Great place to get up close to beautiful creatures. Tigers were magnificent. Many more animals than tigers. We took our time really enjoyed visiting each animal. Hidden Gem.

We came as a group with a large age range - youngest was 2 and the oldest was 70. We all enjoyed the visit immensely. It was nice and open with lots of grass and trees (strollers were harder to get around with tree roots since there was no paving etc but not a problem). Many animals enjoyed interacting -... More
