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 scratch 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 pack to share your memories.
All of our experiences must be booked in advance and are subject to availability. Tapir experiences are for ages 12 years and over only. Parents/Guardians are more than welcome to accompany children but will be charged at full experience price.
