About Us

Tiger World is a nonprofit animal conservation  and educational center dedicated to rescue, rehabilitation, and preservation of exotic animals. We are open to the public for educationalguided tours and walkabout self-guided tours in Rockwell, NC.

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.
