Big Cat Encounter (aka Feeding the tigers!) at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, Australia
Like many of you, the thought of getting up close and personal with a tiger sounds incredible! To be able to feed these creatures was an experience of a lifetime.
We had the luxury of staying at Taronga Western Plains Zoo Zoofari Lodge and spent two days exploring the incredible zoo which felt more like roaming around in Africa somewhere as you can drive through the zoo (bike, electric buggy or car). We decided to jump on to a big cat encounter with 100% of the proceeds going to protect these creatures.
There were only 5 of us on the tour which makes it even more special. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and being able to feed these big cats was definitely a highlight of our weekend.
It is easy to forget that these cats are in fact quite dangerous and the only thing between us and being eaten is that fence! So despite wanting to jump in for a cuddle, you quickly remember that they probably don’t want to cuddle back!
Take a look at our short video of our experience.
