I was so happy that Tiger Kingdom opened in time for our July trip to Phuket. We made sure it was on the top of our "to do" list.
We did the "take four" where you get to play with all four age groups, the babies, the medium sized, the medium size 2, and the big boys. This was the most expensive package but DEFINITELY worth it. Don't skimp, this is truly once in a life time and all your friends will be shocked when they see the photos.
It was 2,800 Baht ( about 93.00) for the "take four". We got to spend about 10 minutes with each age group of tigers, so the entire time in the park was around 45 minutes. During the time with the tigers, its just you and your group, so its cool thats its a private interaction with the tigers. Other people are free to come and watch through the cages though. The staff was more than willing to take photos with our camera so I wouldn't waste your money on the photographer they offer. We got over 300 photos, so be sure to have your batteries fully charged (maybe even a back up battery) and an extra memory card, so you don't miss out on a single photo with these beautiful creatures.
The staff was great, they were all friendly, they suggested silly poses, like grabbing the tigers tail and doing a "tiger pose" They were also all VERY kind to the tigers, I saw nothing but loving and nurturing behavior from all the staff.
If you are anywhere near Phuket, this is a MUST do!!! Also there is a bar in the facility if you need a drink to work up your courage ;) The bathrooms were clean and very well maintained!
