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

When we visited the "station" I expected a larger operation, but what they did have there was pure awesomeness. The three young but still very large tigers in the glassed-in exhibit were playing like kittens. They really knew how to wow a crowd. My favorite part was the moment the one cat turned all tiger as he saw a black... More

An animal experience like no other I have encountered in our extensive visits to zoo's and animal parks. Though pricey every dollar you spend is worth it especially given that the proceeds go to the preservation projects both at the Myrtle Beach preserve but also carried to the native areas of the world where Tigers and other species are endangered....

The TIGERS vip safari tour will be the GREATEST day of your life. I am looking forward to going back again. To get to spend time with baby tigers, ligers and chimps in addition to seeing these grown beautiful animals in an environment where they are loved and happy is just a dream come true.

Went to visit with my my boyfriend. Was an awesome experience. We love to interact with animals and have done discovery cove in Florida. This was better because the money you spend to interact with the animals goes toward conservation. Well worth the money.

My co-workers and I visited T.I.G.E.R.S Preservation Station several weeks ago and I am still in awe of our experience. Having read other reviews and being familiar with the mission of the preserve I felt I knew a little of what to expect prior to the tour beginning- tiger cubs!!! I was not prepared however, for how emotional and magical... More

Old or young alike this was the highlight of our week in Myrtle Beach. Well worth the cost and goes to a great cause. Have you ever been kissed by an chimp or held a tiger cub? Watched a tiger run before you? Ever seen a 900 lb liger? Fun for all and worth the price!

This was a nice welcome in the midst of various shops in the development. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the various tigers and the monkey that was posing to get his picture made with paying customers. A nice place to be able to view some very exotic animals.

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

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
