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

It was an excellent experience and a must see on any trip to Myrtle Beach (IMO) or through the area! This made my trip - better then going to the beach at Myrtle or Hilton Head!! I went during the peak season for a picture opportunity during the hours of 6-9. I was able to hold and pet tiger cubs... More

Its an excellent hands on experience for kids and adults to interact with some rare & endangered species. The show is very well orchestrated and the crew works really really hard to keep the crowd well engaged. Although some times the crew is slightly over the top enthusiastic. Watch out for the chimps, they can do the "high fives" pretty... More

The place is a small rooms with an 3 or 4 tiger cubs, they just bought for money making. Don't expect you are going for Zoo or mini safari.. It's a... More

My wife booked this for my birthday. It was nothing like I expected. First of all it was only 8 miles from our house. How funny. The event was first class. The whole show was amazing. We really had a great time. Considering it was hottest weekend of year. Upper 90's and 100% humidity... It is not cheap. But should... More

Our daughters went...ages 18 and 16. It was fantastic. The girls fell in love, worth the money. The pictures were perfect, they got to hold all the baby animals. They got to be up close with large lions and monkeys, elephant too. Perfect place, can't say enough. My daughter wants to to an apprenticeship there when she turns 18. She... More

We went on the full tour at the preserve, not the picture taking at Barefoot Landing. It was a unique experience that I don't believe you can do anywhere else. The staff are great and truly care about the animals. We touched a bear cat, elephant, baby tigers, small fox, monkeys, orangutan, and a wolf cub. We saw full grown... More

The ratings were real high on trip advisor so I was excited to check this out but when I got there all I found was an extremely long line of people waiting to have their photo taken (for 79.00 each!!) and 1 large enclosure with two tigers that was hard to get to due to the crowds.

ATTENTION: AMAZING TOUR, ANIMALS ARE SO AWESOME AND CUTE, BE AWARE TO PICK YOUR JAW UP FROM THE FLOOR WHILE PICTURES ARE BEING TAKEN (we looked ridiculous in half our pics because we had out mouths wide open with amazement, no fault of the photographer). Was it a little expensive, yes but its for a good cause and soooo worth... More

Went for my birthday this year and the experience was phenomenal. The animal interactions are priceless but the staff are very enthusiastic and incredibly hospitable. My husband even joked "are these people on happy drugs or can they really love their job this much?" Even the snacks were delectable and the facilities squeaky clean. Worth every penny.
