Tiger World, Rockwell

#6 of 14 in Zoos & Aquariums in North Carolina
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 like a natural wilderness hike with pathways of rock and grass. Please consider this when bringing strollers or wheelchairs.

  • Today's visit was AWESOME. After visiting the NC Zoo last Sunday, I wanted to go somewhere that had a lot of the big cats! This was the place I found online and I'm glad I visited. To me its better than the zoo! Lots of animals, not a lot of walking at all! Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Definitely will be coming back! Great for a family!
  • We love visitng Tiger World! It is a great zoo alternative as it is smaller and my young kids can easily walk around without getting tired. We love how close we can see the animals. In our experience the animals are more active in the morning so that's when we usually go. There is a playground too which is always fun for the kids. We pack a picnic lunch and eat at one of the picnic tables and make a day of it.
