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

The customer service was excellent, the grounds very clean and the animals relaxed. It was a very enjoyable couple of hours

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

This is a great, relatively small, animal refuge with lots of different animals. Not huge, so even elderly people can visit without too much effort. Visited last year, and we're planning to go again in a couple of weeks. If you go on Thurs nights, you can watch as they feed the animals and explain the history of each one.... More

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
