Your experience will involve you entering the Tapir enclosure, which is normally off-limits to everyone but their keepers, and helping to feed them, accompanied by a member of Park's staff. One of the most inquisitive and friendly land mammals you're ever likely to meet, the tapir is a close relative of both the horse and the rhinoceros, and now you can get to know one! Your experience will also include entry to Paradise Wildlife for the whole day for both of you.

tapirs are my all time favourite animal, I got to live my dream by sitting in thier bed with a gorgeous pair of them while giving them cuddles and scratches, it was amazing and ill never forget it, the lovely keeper was super nice and friendly, she made it so much nicer as I was nervous, but she was fantastic!

Excellent afternoon!

I bought this experience as a gift for my Mum and I, and it was such a treat! The Park makes you feel so special as you have your experience (cup of tea, biscuits, a certificate!) the zoo keeper was really friendly (Amelia), and tickling the tapirs was extraordinary. We really enjoyed seeing all the different animals in the morning and then had our experience in the afternoon, and it was a fun and relaxing day out. Would definitely recommend.

Tapirs are Great

This was a gift for my partners birthday, he loves these animals and enjoyed the chance to get to spend time with these docile creatures. The keeper who accompanied us was knowledgeable and able to answer our questions; we got a goody bag including a certificate for the experience. We looked around the zoo afterwards and plenty of other animals were visible.

Fantastic gift
03 June 2019
The gift was for my sister's 50th birthday, and as a good sister, went to keep her complaint. It was a fantastic experience, being in the pen with 3 gentle giants. They loved being scratched, as much as we did. The keeper was very informative, and was more than happy to answer any questions, and take photos.

What a fab gift
10 September 2018
I got all that I expected and more. A lovely zoo and great staff from booking to time in the enclosure with the tapirs. very knowledgeable staff. 4 stars for availability purely because at the time of booking there was a little wait but I had specific timings in mind and the booking staff were incredibly accommodating and worked to get us in as soon as they could and were very responsive to calls and emails.

Amazing Experience!!!
03 August 2018
Fantastic experience, every single member of staff was incredibles especially James (head keeper) who was so dedicated and knowledgable about these animals. He really made the experience. ou got very close access to the animals and we got to sit right next to them. We always felt safe and I couldn’t fault the experience.

Given lots of information on the animals before meeting them. Then getting so close to them was even better than I imagined. A great day at the zoo managed by amazing staff. Experience lasted about 45 mins.

Absolutely fantastic !
10 February 2017
The entire experience was amazing! We loved everything . We got to go in with the tapirs, tickle them on their bellies and their chins to make them smile and give them a big cuddle. The keeper who was with us was fantastic too , so much information and made us laugh and feel really comfortable the entire time we were in with these gentle giants! We also got free entry to the park ... it's not a massive zoo but truely worth a visit as you can get very close to the animals. Nothing but good words to say. Thanks for the great experience !
