1. Poacher’s Station
Ever wondered how a tiger’s fur feels or how a tiger penis looks like? Head down to the Poacher’s Station to see real artifacts of these cats as well as a life-size taxidermised tiger and lion, all in the company of Conservation Ambassadors who will share educational and conservation facts with you.
This year, the spotlight is on the tiger, whose population is rapidly declining due to human- animal encroachment.
