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

We were in Myrtle Beach for one night for a college visit. I decided to take the family to check at TIGERS at Barefoot Landing. It was neat to see the tigers up close, especially the babies.. Four of us got our pictures taken with a monkey and a baby tiger as a group for $80. Typically I think this... More

We visited the one at North Myrtle Beach at Barefoot Landing. They had full grown tigers behind glass enclosures that you get up close for pictures or to just view for free, which was great. Then for an $80.00 fee you can get a picture taken with a monkey and a baby tiger, while holding them, for group of up... More

First off they are all volunteers raising money. It may seem expensive to get your picture taken but it was a life time experience and besides it goes to a good cause. The volunteers were extremely friendly and the animals were just priceless!

I took the tour which I would recommend to everyone. Initially I thought it was expensive but after attending the program, the hands on exposure and insight I acquire was invaluable. I would not only do it again but am going to recommend it to all my friends and family. The staff was so friendly and knowledgable and the tour... More

Wow! I am so glad we did this! It was expensive, but for a good cause and for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hold wild babies! We held a tiger cub, wolf pup, and a baby chimp! We got lots of great photos and donated to a worthy cause. It only took about 15 minutes with the line!... More

Last night, my husband, mother, and I visited the Preservation Station. My husband really wanted the opportunity to hold a tiger. We paid for one photo with one animal. My heart sank when I saw the chimps there simply because I had ALWAYS wanted to interact with one since I was a little girl and I thought because we had... More

As soon as my daughter saw that you can take a picture with a baby tiger, this tourist attraction was a done deal on our to do list. Get there early because the line can get long. Also pay attention to the times that they will be available because it is not an all day deal. If you go, this... More
