Capybara and Tapir Encounter:

Interact with tapirs and capybaras, two gentle giants of the animal kingdom. Our Capybara and Tapir Encounter provides an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience where you can do just that.

Tapirs are known for their playful and curious nature, and during this encounter, you'll have the exciting opportunity to give them a tickle and witness their endearing reactions up close. Our cute capybaras, on the other hand, will provide you with the chance to learn more about their behaviour and habitats as you study them right in front of your eyes!

This encounter is for up to two participants (either two adults or one adult and one child aged 6+) and includes entry to the Zoo for the day for the participants.

During the encounter, you'll meet Emiel, our resident anteater, and even assist in feeding him. Learn about their extraordinary long tongues and how they use them to slurp up thousands of ants and termites! Additionally, you can treat the armadillos to a gentle

scratch and witness their fascinating armour up close. This experience is available for animal enthusiasts aged 10 and above who are eager to delve into the world of these intriguing creatures.
