Located inside Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, it offers families the opportunity to see tigers up close, through glass, absolutely free of charge. For those interested in meeting a tiger or an ape in person, we offer (for a fee)the opportunity to pose with one of the animal ambassadors for a photo. The animals spend only a couple hours per day, in the late afternoon, at T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station and funding generated from our photos and gift shop sales help support various wildlife conservation projects we conduct worldwide through our Rare Species Fund. We are open from mid-March to mid-October and hours of operation can be found by calling our listed telephone number. « less

I have been fortunate in my life to have countless experiences that many would say was "the best day of their life". That being said, when I qualify my day spent with the beautiful wild-life ambassadors at Myrtle Beach Safari among one MY best days EVER is maybe the best compliment I can extend! The interactions with the animals instilled... More

I LOVED visiting the Myrtle Beach Safari. Yes it's pricey but it's totally worth it and you will be helping "Save The Tigers" as well as enjoying your day.

After taxes, fees and license the ticket will cost you almost $350.00. Note that you only get one free 8 X 10 picture per group.

We visited TIGERS on a recent trip to Myrtle Beach. It was amazing! The staff was so knowledgeable and clearly cared deeply for the animals and the work they do. Seeing the big cats and getting to play with the babies was awesome. Bubbles, the elephant, clearly enjoys being the center of attention and getting to feed her carrots made... More

I have been wanting to do this for years and finally got the chance. it is spendy but humbling. never with the exception of going to Africa will you see these animals up close and personal. I worry about extinction of wild animals and these people are dedicated to actually doing something about it! their stories are amazing and so... More

It's great that you can see a tiger and all its majesty so close but to take a picture is costly and you literally hold the baby tiger for 10 seconds. The safari sounds amazing but for over $200 per person for a few hours it is just too expensive. I understand why it is but it's more for folks... More

Where else could you possibly be up close and personal with tiger cubs, a baby fox, wolf cubs, an elephant, chimps, orangutans and Ligers...yes, they are real! It is an informative, educational experience reinforced by the" hands on" visit .Amazing having a baby tiger curl up in your lap for a rest. The trainers and staff live and breathe this... More

We (my husband, 6 year old daughter, and Mother) had an amazing experience doing the Myrtle Beach Safari. After seeing a liger, playing with tiger cubs and interacting with numerous other animals, we decided to do a VIP experience and chose to swim with Bubbles the elephant. This was my fourth time swimming with Bubbles over the course of 13... More

This was no sad zoo or backyard animal rescue. T.I.G.E.R.S. African Safari was an amazing experience where you can touch and interact with many endangered species of wildlife. The people are family to these animals. The tour was one of the most professional ones my husband and I have ever taken, and we have done many others. Wow, is the... More
