About this activity

Tiger World is a different kind of zoo! Sure, you can come face to face with beautiful, exotic creatures like in a "regular" zoo, but at Tiger World, they are dedicated to the conservation and education of all threatened and endangered species. 

And you can be a part of it and learn their story!

Whilst you can arrive anytime during their opening times and enjoy a self-guided tour, it's their educational tours that will personally guide your family throughout the preserve, teaching you all about each animal as you make your way around.

It really gives kids an insightful and 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.

The goal at Tiger World 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.

What's also great about families who visit, is that every admission and donation goes towards the care for the animals, so your support ensures their future!

A wonderful experience that will teach kids about animals, nature, and of course conservation!
