History


The National Tiger Sanctuary rescue organization is licensed by the USDA Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Missouri Department of Conservation. It is a non-profit organization and was founded in 2000. Some of the big cats that live here were attempted to be made into domestic animals. Many of the exotic animals cannot be returned to the wild. The animal care guidelines are thorough and the center does its best to provide appropriate environments and simulate their natural habitat for big cats such as mountain lions, lions, orange tigers, leopards, and other exotic wildlife. This place is so much more than a zoo. It is a place where rescued animals get the care that they need from animal lovers who wish to create a unique educational experience for visitors and help to educate them. Each animal is loved, cared for, and healthy. This facility is well worth the visit and even accepts donations for its efforts.  

National Tiger Sanctuary Awareness Tour
Available Now until 12/31
With the Awareness Tour, you'll have the opportunity to visit the big cats and see each of their unique personalities. This tour strives to show visitors big cat knowledge and appreciation before they leave the Sanctuary.

National Tiger Sanctuary Feeding Tour

National Tiger Sanctuary Behind-the-Scenes Tour
Available Now until 12/31

The tiger sanctuary was amazing. We enjoyed the chance to help feed the cats and learn their stories. We are glad the owners were able to find the larger property and can do this for the displaced and unwanted big cats. The employees really care about them. We are glad there are places like this for animals that couldn't be returned to the wild.

The behind the scenes tour was definitely worth the money. We saw tigers being themselves and not acting for the tourists.

A relatively new attraction for the branson area (about 20 minutes north) and one that critter lovers will appreciate and enjoy.

The tiger sanctuary is a great place to visit and we did the riding tour on july 1, 2020. The animals are beautiful and the tour guide is very knowledgeable about the animals. Be aware to not sit on the back of the tram, especially if it’s raining. You will get wet! The driver also seems to forget the length of the tram. She stopped so that she was even with the animals so seeing them from the back of the tram was very difficult. One of the tigers got in position to spray us, so the driver hurriedly moved the tram forward...Just enough to put us directly behind the cat. Thankfully he didn’t spray. Take the tour, support the sanctuary, admire the beautiful animals just don’t sit in the back seat!
