Where are we going today?
Tiger World is a different kind of Zoo. We are dedicated to the conservation and education of all threatened and endangered species. Our educational tours personally guide visitors throughout the preserve learning about each animal providing an individual hands on experience. You will see the animals in a natural setting and have the opportunity to observe them running, playing, swimming, eating, sleeping, and interacting with their handlers.
Our goal is provide the best environment in captivity for the animals while also providing a stimulating learning environment for visitors. The intimate setting is a great place to bring the family and learn about the animals up close and personally.
Tiger World is one of a handful of accredited zoos in the nation that operates with NO TAX SUPPORT. We are a licensed and USDA Approved Facility and registered non-profit organization. We welcome all monetary, materials, food and service donations to help in our worthy cause. We depend on admissions, membership dues and donations for funding and helping care for our animals.

We have been about a half dozen times, it's close to home and so peaceful there,
and in many ways better than driving all the way to Columbia zoo. Never crowded,
but up close and personal with the animals. You can just sit and watch the animals
as long as you like. A great stress reliever, highly recommended. Get a season pass,
you'll be back.

My family has gone to TigerWorld before and it is an amazing place! We adopted a tiger there and we used to go all the time. We haven't gone in a while because it's been winter. Now it's spring so we're gonna try to go soon. When I went there it looked like a nice little place that is welcome to all. We went in and there were tigers, bears, reptiles, lions, cubs, and more!

We just had our first visit and we are hooked. We love animals and have three rescues My husband loves tigers and I love wolves so it works out wonderfully. Lea, Jen, and the staff work really hard so all donations count! We will be volunteering for such a good cause. 120 miles is not that far for those gorgeous animals.

My favorite time to go is during feeding time where they feed the animals and you can see the behavior of the animals when they are being feed. I am going to volunteer there this summer and I already have fed one of the tigers. It is a wonderful place and I really recommend it!
