One word: Magical. Honestly, for those that love animals there is no experience better than the VIP tour at T.I.G.E.R.S.

T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station is quite possibly the country's only FREE living tiger museum. Located inside Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, it offers families the opportunity to see tigers up close, through glass, absolutely free of charge. For those interested in meeting a tiger or an ape in person, we offer (for a fee)the opportunity to pose with one of the animal ambassadors for a photo. The animals spend only a couple hours per day, in the late afternoon, at T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station and funding generated from our photos and gift shop sales help support various wildlife conservation projects we conduct worldwide through our Rare Species Fund. We are open from mid-March to mid-October and hours of operation can be found by calling our listed telephone number.

We always stop by to see the Tigers when we are at Barefoot Landing. This attraction is free ,unless you want a photo with a Tiger cub or Monkey.

I got my picture taken with a baby tiger, a monkey and a baby wolf. It's long been a dream of mine to touch a live tiger. The whole experience couldn't have lasted longer than 2 minutes, and the price is outrageous if it isn't...More

Oh my goodness, the babies are so cute. We did not feed them but watched others. It really is a good cause.

This is an expensive experience but unique. My 19 year old grandson though it entirely worth the long line and wait to be able to hold tiger cubs, a chimpanzee and his special favorite a white tiger cub. The high fee is purported to help...More

This was the trip of a lifetime for us. The VIP tour is a little drive away from the preservation station into a nondescript area. After a drive down a dirt road ending at a large gate, we were greeted and taken into the tiger...More
