  • Not worth the money at all... They completely rush you through the process... So fast your head spins. They basically throw three animals in your lap for literally 30 seconds each. The photography was sub par and we basically received 20 photos that were copied and pasted 3 times in the same photo album. Maybe 2 photos in the whole album looked good. Most of the photos were embarrassing. Its obvious the person taking the photos is not actually formally trained. This was a dream of mine and I feel like my friend and I were robbed. Before we paid we asked the girl at the front desk if we would get our own photos and she said yes. But after we paid they told us we would sit together and not get any individual shots. The front desk girl had an attitude and stated "Oh I told you it was in the package." So basically you either pay $115 each to sit together for literally 2 minutes while 2 baby animals and a chimp are thrown in your lap, you'll get a digital folder where you go online to download them and then one printed picture... OR... you pay $115 and sit alone and only get one printed picture and no digital photos. I feel robbed. Absolutely robbed. I am just SO upset about the photos... Even though we only had about 20-30 seconds per animal... its not something you can do every day. Which that was awesome... But for $230 I feel like we deserved better photos and more time with the animals.
  • TIGERS is a poor excuse of a sanctuary. People looking to visit here, please don't support their inhumane ways. They exploit these beautiful exotic animals for money instead of trying to raise them for the better.
  • I had done the Tigers Tour earlier in the day (which I highly recommend) but returned to Preservation Station to pet the animals and get photographed one last time. I pet a baby lion, a baby tiger and held a large Monkey. The Monkey was by far the highlight of my experience. I'm not a big Monkey person but this 50 lb monkey leaped into my arm and wrapped his legs around my waist and his arms around my neck and he wouldn't let go! No joking! Not even the trainer knew what to do! Me and the monkey had a cuddling and kissing session for about 3 minutes and I'm telling you, it was better than the tiger safari tour and preservation combined. There's something about loving a animal who looks just like you and truly wants to be loved. It is GODLY and I will never forget it. Thank you Tigers for a once in a lifetime experience. You have touched my heart!
  • I just got back from the Preservation Station. I went with a friend and we loved it. It is very expensive, esp. if you buy the whole photo package which I did. But we held a two month old white tiger cub on our laps, petted and touched a one month old, and had hugs from a chimp. The animals are alert and happy. You can see others playing in the background and they are not stressed or scared. Every person there was very friendly and informative. The animals don't live there; they are just there for two hours. In addition to the money taken in each day, you have to assume this will bring in future donations. It's a way to help spread the word about endangered animals. I plan to drive the 7 hours back here to go to the safari in October when it is cooler. The heat and the expense are why I gave it 4 stars as an attraction but the people and animals deserve 5!!!
  • Visting T.I.G.E.R.S was a spur of the moment decision. We did the encounters not the full safari. Had a wonderful time- the baby tigers were so adorable. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
