Tiger World is an animal conservation and educational center dedicated to rescue, rehabilitation, and preservation of exotic animals. We are open to the public for educational guided tours and walkabout self-guided tours. Tiger World is a different kind of Zoo. Our tours personally guide visitors throughout the preserve learning about each animal. You see them in a natural setting and have the opportunity to observe them playing, swimming, eating, sleeping, and interacting with their handlers.

It's not the fanciest, but they are working hard to make improvements. In just a few years, they've made major changes to give the animals the space they need The animals are primarily rescues, so i feel good about going there.

Paved way. The park has updated, through a donation, paved walkways which makes it easier for strollers and wheelchairs. Not all are paved so some areas are still rough going. Love going there to see the animals.
