Animal Meet & Greet Experience

Tickle a Tapir is a truly unique zoo experience! Take a trip back in time and meet a Tapir! These prehistoric looking creatures native to Brazil are friendly and inquisitive and love a tickle! This really is one of our more unusual experiences!

Your experience will begin in the Discovery Centre where you will receive complimentary refreshments before being met by one of the Animal Park team. You will then be escorted to the Brazilian Tapir enclosure for your health and safety briefing. 

One of the Zoo Keepers will be on hand to assist you to feed the Tapir and to capture some wonderful photographs on your own camera for approximately 15 minutes.

The experience lasts for approximately 30 minutes, however you can arrive early and stay late to enjoy the many other attractions and animals.

You will receive a souvenir T-shirt and a presentation certificate to prove your incredible feat! 

All of our gift experiences are presented in an attractive red case with "Congratulations - you are the lucky recipient of a Well Wicked experience day" written on the front. You will also get a DVD featuring many of our experiences. Experience vouchers can be personalised if required.

Review 9th April 2013
Thanks for your email asking for what I thought of my experience, 'Tickle a Tapir'.

I had a brilliant time at the zoo topped off by the experience itself. The park is great and the staff there are all so friendly and helpful.

I would very much recommend going there and taking part in an animal experience that they offer.

It was easy to book the experience through yourselves and I wouldn't hesitate in using you again for this type of gift/experience. Kind regards, Lottie - Leamington Spa
