Tapir Experience

Tapir experience

All experiences with our Tapir have been cancelled for the foreseeable future, due to the recent outbreak of Covid-19. However all experiences can still be bought as gift vouchers and are valid for 18 months instead of the usual 12.

Our wonderful Brazilian Tapir is named Cecil and he is extremely friendly and gentle; an unusual trait for his species. He came to us in early 2015 unexpectedly as he needed a new home, and we of course took him in and instantly fell in love with him. He has a dry skin condition which means he needs extra care with medicated baths & regular brushing… which he adores!

With a Tapir experience the lucky recipient will go inside Cecil’s custom-built enclosure to help the animal keeper feed and entertain this affectionate creature. You may also get the opportunity to give him a good brush and lather if he needs a bath! You’ll learn all about his species and can take photos to remember your unique experience at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park; taking it all home in your unique photo presentation folder with Certificate!
