Wild Encounters Tour
The Worlds Greatest Hands-On Animal Experience!

The Wild Encounters Tour is a guided walk through a fifty acre preserve just 17 miles South of Barefoot Landing, where you'll meet tigers, wolves, leopards, chimpanzees, orangutans, and other endangered species, many of them up-close and un-caged!

During the tour professional photographers shoot studio quality photographs and video of the tour and the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preserve experience. This gives you the opportunity to take home a set of portraits and phenomenal videos that are incomparable to any other photo opportunity.

Tours run 3-5 days a week from March 4, 2017 through October 9, 2017.
Tours begin at 10:00am and last approx. 3 hours.
Tour arrival is at 9:00 am and lasts approx. 3 hours.
