Before You Book Your Visit

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carolina Tiger Rescue is making changes to our procedures for our volunteers and our guests. The first change you will see is that everyone, including guests, will be required to wear a mask. The cloth mask can be a surgical mask or a homemade mask, but it must cover your nose and mouth. Masks will not be required of children 2 and under. You will be required to wear your mask for your entire time at Carolina Tiger Rescue. This requirement is not only for the safety of our guests and volunteers but also for our animals. COVID-19 can be transmitted to big cats from humans. While we are excited to have you out to learn about our amazing animals, their health and safety is our priority. Thank you for doing your part!

Tours at Carolina Tiger Rescue are all pre-arranged. We cannot accommodate walk-in visitors. You may choose from one of our regularly scheduled daytime public tours, an early evening twilight tour, or make an advance reservation for a private tour. Each tour is guided and you will be walking the gravel tour path.

There are several things we want you to know before you book your visit to Carolina Tiger Rescue. Please read the information below before purchasing tickets.
