Are you ready for an experience of a lifetime? Go with a zookeeper to discover the biggest of all cat species, the Amur tiger. Meet the zoo’s tigers, brothers Korol and Kunali and see their behind-the-scenes area.
Tiger encounters are offered on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 9am. Advance purchase is required. We have a maximum of 4 spots available per date. The encounter fee is $95.00 per person. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a paid adult. The encounter fee includes admission to the zoo. We do not offer membership discounts for encounters. Must be booked and purchased at least 48 hours in advance of the requested date.
We have tiger encounter dates available through mid-May. Contact Shannon Jensen, Curator, with questions at email@example.com or 907-341-6421.
