Romeo & Hamlet encounters

Straight from the Marcan Tiger Preserve, we are proud to announce the arrival of two male bengal tiger cubs, Romeo (Golden Tabby) and Hamlet (Royal White).

As one of our most popular attractions here at the zoo, spaces do fill up quickly. Our phone lines are very busy, but please keep trying! Due to the volume of calls we are unable to accept reservation requests via email or voicemail at this time.

Thanks for your patience - we promise it's worth the wait!
