About Tiger Kingdom

Nowadays, we have more than 60 tigers at the zoo and this number will continue to increase in the future as the breeding program continues to become more successful.

In recent years the income from the zoo has remained the same. This is a problem as the amount of animals increase, but the income remains the same. For that reason - 24th March 2008 Tiger Kingdom was founded in Chiang Mai as a 2nd branch to Ubon Zoo in order to earn more. As well as providing the much needed revenue, Tiger Kingdom also provides the extra space and enclosures that the tigers needed to be comfortable.

And for this year, we are so proud to present our 3rd branch - TIGER KINGDOM PHUKET.
1. UBON ZOO - Ubon Ratchathani
2. TIGER KINGDOM - Chiang Mai
3. TIGER KINGDOM - Intown Restaurant - Chiang Mai
4. TIGER KINGDOM - Phuket

IS IT DANGEROUS TO GET IN THE CAGE?

OUR TIGERS

Tigers at Tiger Kingdom are hand raised by their trainers since young, bonding with it throughout the development process. The trainer employ a combination of repetition, trust and encouragement to train their big cats and over time the Big Cat are use to human and often see us as one of the family.
In Tiger Kingdom,our well-trained and experience staffs will ensure your duty, but these Big Cats are still wild animal that you need to treat with respect.

HOW TO TOUCH THEM

Our Big Cats are handled, stroked and petted on a daily basis, so even the roughest of petting will not bother these Big Cats. It’s normal to them and that is why our cats are so relax when you play with them.
If you gently stroke the cats,it will feel ticklish and irritated,especially to a sleeping tiger. The best method is to cuddle and stroke the cat firmly to make it feel comfortable.
Baby Tiger are playful and likely to play with you. Sometime when playing it tend to be a bit rough or bite, so do be careful when handle with them.

ARE ANY OF THE TIGERS HERE DRUGGED?

Most visitors came and spend a relatively short time in Tiger Kingdom, more than often they would encounter that these tigers are always sleeping. But cats are cats and they sleep up to 18 hours a day, just like kitty at home.Please do not assume our cats are drugged. To make the most of your visit, our staffs will play with the tigers during the day. And our cats are also trained to sleep and rest at night
