TOP TEN BIG CATS IN THE WILD

As Tiger King 2 is released worldwide on Netflix, its time to look back to the worldwide shutdown where we had had to put the globetrotting on hold, pack away our passports and indulge in A LOT of Netflix binging. 

One of the biggest shows the everyone seemed to watch was ‘Tiger King’ which documented the feud between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin. It certainly got the world talking (in the first ten days of release it was viewed 34.4 million times) and left us with many questions such as where is Carole’s husband? Did Joe really sing in his videos? And most importantly …. Will there be a season 2? Today we get those answers.

While the ‘Tiger King’ cast became world famous, the most attractive stars of the show were always the Big Cats. While we are all obsessed with the show, we can all agree that these beautiful creatures do not belong in the zoos and parks in the show. 
Here are some of The Luxury Travel Bible’s favourite safaris and resorts in the world to see beautiful Big Cats in the wild.
