Coming to Thailand really wanting an interaction and experience with tigers. It was very hard to find an ethical place. Tiger kingdom was the closest i could find with many misconceptions. We went to find out ourselves and experienced nothing but care and professionalism from...More

The animals seem well taken care of although some friends suggests they may have been drugged and it is unethical to support these kind of places. To each their own but overall it was a good experience for me taking pictures with the baby tigers....More

Definitely worth a visit. Awesome, animals seem very well taken care of. We never felt like the trainers weren’t in control. Obviously there is considerable risk when talking about getting into a cage with multiple large animals that are incredibly capable We went into the...More

Hi Pau, thank you for taking the time to write a review. The sticks should only to be used to manoeuvre the tigers safely and to administer rewards (bits of chicken) for positive behaviour. Never to inflict pain. Any staff found to be using the...More

This was a spur of the moment decision for us, we spent ages researching an ethical way to experience elephants (no riding, no shows, etc.) but the tiger kingdom was just a rainy day decision. Showed up and it was super cool, big cats you...More

Awful place. Unsafe for tourists and cruel for tigers. Very small cages. Worse than a zoo, cause tigers are continuouslu touched with sticks to make them turn towards people shooting pictures, and touched by tourists. It’s quite clear tigers don’t like all this stuff. Also...More

The mornings and late afternoons are best for seeing active tigers. Please note that we are a zoo rather than a sanctuary.

We look after the tigers for life, our mature tigers are housed at the Tiger Kingdom Learning Center in Mae Taeng Chiang Mai. This is where you can take part in our Keeper for a Day experience.
