T.I.G.E.R.S. - The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species

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 portaits and phenomenal videos that are incomparable to any other photo opportunity.

Wild Encounters Tours normally cost $299.00 per person. No Children under the age of 6 are allowed on the tour.
Tours run 3-5 days a week from March 14, 2015 through October 10, 2015.
Tours begin at 10:00am and last approx. 3 hours.
