Thank you for your interest!
Please contact our Education Director, Katie, below if you are interested in a Private Tour.
You can still book tour tickets for any public tour that is still available (please see the orange “Ticket Information” tab at the bottom of the page).
The option of a private tour is possible with at least two weeks notice and based on availability.
You will need to call or email our Education Director, Katie, to make a reservation.
We cannot guarantee that your desired date and time will be available when you call, but we will certainly try to accommodate your needs. The private tour experience is much like the public tour in content and the animals you will visit. The difference is that private tours are exclusive to your group, making it a more personal experience.
Your private tour will last about 1 ½ hours. Please arrive 15 minutes early. Our trained volunteer tour guides will walk you through the animal sanctuary. You will learn about the different species living at Carolina Tiger Rescue and the problems they face in the wild, as well as the challenges they face in captivity. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and take photos, but you will not have any physical contact with the animals.
Can be scheduled any
day of the week, except Tuesday afternoons. Please note, weekend (Friday-Sunday) and Holiday private tour prices differ from weekday (Monday-Thursday) prices.
Start times can be as early as
9:30 am and as late as 2:30 pm.
Payment is due at the time
of the reservation.
