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

After 10 visits to this wonderful and informative place, we visited again today. Nowhere in the world will anyone find such a beautiful place where you can see in person and pet most, tigers, wolves, elephant, monkey, orangutan, etc. The staff is great and tour you around a 50+ acre property of full of animals, We encourage all visiting families...

I am an animal lover and to be given an opportunity to hold these beautiful creatures of God is an experience I will NEVER forget. You can tell the animals are well taken care of plus I believe they truly enjoy being around humans. The little chimp snuggled with me and just melted my heart when he looked into my... More

My wife and I have been going to this attraction for years any time we are in the area of Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC. One year we had photos taken with a full-grown 600 lb. Bengal Tiger. It was a once-in-a-lifetime awesome experience. This time, however, we chose a beautiful black and white baby tiger weighing about... More

The tigers are out and frisky in their cages while you stroll between the shops and restaurants of Barefoot Landings. Not interactive from what we could see, but we were only there in the evenings after dinner.

While we were there the first time, the monkey (i remember he name but will not attempt to spell it :)) was playing and running around with her puppy... More

On vacation in Emerald Isle, N.C. my husband decides to take me and our 23 year old son for a surprise. The surprise ended up being in Myrtle Beach, S.C.! It was to see the Tigers and monkeys at Barefoot Landing at the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station. Granted it was a very long drive but my husband is an avid lover... More

My husband and I got our picture taken with a young white Bengal tiger. I was giddy for hours! The preservation station is a great place. For free we got to watch very happy young adult tigers play in their few hour a day enclosure, and could see SEVERAL younger cubs play in their enclosure. After watching them for a... More

The emotions I experienced while taking the T.I.G.E.R.S. Tour and even now as I write this review are so overwhelming that it is going to be hard to put it into words. I will try my best though. I wanted to take my partner on a weekend getaway for her birthday and so I decided on Myrtle Beach. I planned... More

For approx. $80 you get 2 minutes with the animals and 1 photo. It sounds like a waste of money, except the kids LOVED it. There aren't too many times in your life that you can pet an exotic animal. Just know what you're getting and you'll be satisfied. A one month old tiger cub was held up so that... More
