Amazing experience with all different kinds of animals that at a Zoo are behind cages but here you can see up close and even touch some. No need to bring a camera as they have photographers capturing moments in both photos as well as a movie (for purchase). Check out local coupon books (or online)for some discounts like Sunny Day...

The tour is a once in a lifetime experience even if you plan on taking a Safari to Africa, this is something you do not get to see or experience at a zoo in the USA. The staff, facilities and tour are top notch. Where else can you experience having a baby tiger or monkey sitting on your lap, getting... More

One of a kind experience. My time was limited but wanted to see tigers upclose and personal. Lucky for me they had extra animals so I got to hold two baby tigers, feed one, and the chimp was very seet. Larger tiger feed was and experience as well.

Ok, so this place was very expensive for a brief interaction with wildlife. However, being that close and personal with wild animals is something that many can not say they have done. If you are looking for a long interaction, this probably isn't what you are looking for. It was over in about 3 minutes , but it still to... More

.T.I.G.E.R.S. (The Institute of the Greatly Endangered and Rare Species) was the most out of this world experience I've ever had. I had my eyes on visiting the facility located in Myrtle beach South Carolina for two years and on October 1st I finally made my visit. .T.I.G.E.R.S. is an enjoyable, zoological facility where you learn while getting up close...

This was my second visit & it appears that they are on a continuing improvement plan for visitors experience. I could not have thought they could improve my first experience & yet they did. The bond the animals & trainers share & the dedication shown to awareness of & support for endangered species is apparent throughout the experience. I could... More

We had an absolutely amazing day. It was definitely worth every penny. The entire tour was thrilling. We learned a lot and interacted with so many animals. You could tell the entire staff truly loved the animals and wanted us to have a terrific day. I have been telling everyone I know to go!

Today my family and I visited the Safari and all I can say is wow! This is something I have dreamed of doing since I've been a little girl! There is no place in the world you get an experience like this. My family and I flew down the night before the tour and home right after it ended, but... More

Was a bit reluctant to go and was a bit shocked by the price. Needless to say, it's worth every penny!! The facility is beautiful, comfortable and very well kept, The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You get plenty of information and lots of interaction with the animals. They take 100s of photos of you interacting with the animals so... More

I won't say too much because words can't describe how great this experience was. The staff is absolutely excellent. The animals are amazing. This hands on experience is worth the cost. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Myrtle Beach.
