T.I.G.E.R.S Myrtle Beach Safari Night Safari

Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with a tiger? At TIGERS Myrtle Beach Safari you can do that behind the safety of thick glass to protect you. Not only can you see and feed tigers but they also have several other animals, some you can hold and take photos with. 

We didn’t really know what to expect when we arrived. There were around twenty or more people already waiting on the tour and I was a little worried that it wouldn’t be a very personal experience since there was so many other people going on the tour with us. The staff work hard to make sure that each person gets the whole experience and many of them went out of their way to talk to us and the kids. They took the time to answer our questions and joke around with us. All of them were really friendly. 

We were treated to a tiger story and an introduction to all the different tigers that they have for the show. They have other tigers they protect but don’t preform in the show. There was around eight or so that they brought out for show. There was also a giant Liger that was the first I had ever seen in person. We got to see them feeding the tigers by throwing for for them. The tigers were always kept a safe distance away for their protection and ours. We were allowed to feed them through small holes in the glass. 
Then we went inside and they had pickups for us and drinks. I loved the room they had us go sit in. They had corner chairs to sit on and eat the food they had prepared. All the food they served was vegetarian which is awesome. 

After we watched the tigers and ate ourselves we went out side to meet some other animals. There we seen all kinds of different animals such as Bubbles the elephant and chimpanzees. There were wolves and a snake to pet and take photos with. There was a baby chimp that I personally loved.

The baby was just so cute! I couldn’t get over how sweet and adorable it was! The lady that was taking care of him said she even sleeps in the bed with him to bond to him. She said that the caretakers of all the chimps live with them. They really do take their jobs seriously. 
Each animal the kids were introduced to and allowed to touch. This is probably the only time the kids will be able to touch such exotic animals safely. It was an awesome experience. 
They also got to hold a baby tiger. This little cub was very well behaved. The staff were awesome at handling the animals. They were ever watchful and only brought out a few animals at a time so that it wasn’t overwhelming for both the people and the animals. They surprised us each time with a different animal to see. 
We also had a chance to roast s’mores with two chimps. I had a slight asthma reaction to the gas from the fire pits and the staff took care by bringing me water to help calm my coughing. It was really nice of them. They set out the stuff and gave us skewers to roast the marshmallows. They also gave us a chocolate chip cookie to put on the s’more which is a new one. The kids enjoyed the s’mores. They also handed out meatless veggie hot dogs. I actually prefer them if I do eat a hot dog. It doesn’t happen often. 
The kid’s favorite animals were the baby tiger cub and this little guy. They loved that he would give them hugs and was very friendly with them. He also posed for the camera and smiled for them. These adorable fellows really made the trip a memorable experience. They have a day tour and a night tour. We did the night tour and would love to return one day and do the day tour. It was such a fun experience! Another wonderful thing is that the money they receive goes back into animal conversations and taking care of the animals.
