It was a once in a lifetime experience for us, there is nothing like playing with a tiger cub! The care that your staff took with us was unparalleled as well! It was an incredible experience!

The tiger encounter was awesome. The worker on the other hand was too strict . I get that you have to be careful but we paid a lot of money for 5 minutes with this animal and I couldn’t lift it or stand it up for a good picture and she made us feel uncomfortable like we couldn’t do anything with it but wave a toy in its face. But it was great to pet a tiger

Thank you for yet another surreal and absolutely wonderful experience, ZWF! My family and I had a terrific time with the Feline Experience we booked with you this past week. This was our fourth visit to ZWF since 2014. Each and every experience we've booked with you has exceeded our expectations, and the beautiful creatures you provide interaction with are a dream to say hi to in person. We love the quality care you show for the animals on your compound; keep treating them well as it's a pleasure to visit them when we know they are well loved. I am still amazed that we could literally pet multiple lions, tigers and a jaguar all in the same day! Thank you for making amazing memories for us with these amazing creatures!

I was a little disappointed that the tiger cub encounter was no longer available due to her age but I appreciated that I was able to meet both the jaguar and the white lion cubs instead. It was the most surreal and incredible experience of my life. When taking the general tour, our guide was so amazing! She was so informative and it’s clear that every member of the staff truly cares about these animals and their well-being. If I’m ever in a Florida again, I will be sure to return!

We had an amazing experience here! I booked a tour to play with the tiger cub and she wasn’t ready for when I booked the appointment. They accommodated me and my boyfriend and gave us a free tour. Walker was our tour guide and he was great! We got to see and play with so many animals and the most amazing part was playing with the tiger cub!

We loved every minute of our time at ZWF. Our guide, Stephanie was so sweet and we learned so much. Definitely was a birthday to remember for my son.

Hi. The experience is amazing, the animals look very well mantained and the facilities keep improving. Staff is great and friendly, the only reason I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because the time allowed to spend with the Tiger is waaaaayyyyyyy to short. It just doesn’t make sense that 1 person gets to spend the same amount of time as a group of 4. 5 minutes is just not enough, the encounter is not very expensive but is not cheap either. It is difficult to explain to a kid that he/she spent at least 45min in a car to get there to just have 5 minites with that gorgeus animal. In 5 minutes you dont even get settled before the guide takes the tiger away. I dont think it is for the animal’s sake, its a Tiger!!! I bet she can go on and on and on playing and never gets tired.
