Have you ever longed to look in to a tiger’s eyes, just inches away from you? Well, now is your chance! Our Meet the Tigers Experience allows you to get closer than you ever imagined to these beautiful animals – some of the most majestic in the world!

Our Tiger Experience offers people the chance to meet our amazing tigers, all while safely under the watchful eye of one of their keepers. Whether you choose to purchase our Meet the Tiger Experience for a loved one, or keep it all for yourself, it’s sure to create wonderful memories.

Your Tiger Experience will last 20 to 30 minutes, and will allow you to enjoy your time with the beautiful big cats that call Wingham Wildlife Park home in a few different ways.

The experience starts at the lion enclosure where you will be taken in to the behind the scenes area where the keeper will talk to you a little about Clarence & Brutus, at which point the lions may wish to come up to the fence to show you how magnificent they are.

There will be no contact with or feeding of the lions.

After spending 5 minutes chatting about our gorgeous lions, the experience will walk along the customer foot path from there to the tiger enclosure, via the other big cats, where your keeper will give you a guided tour as they introduce all of the cats to you – jaguars, pumas and our cheetah.  This is your perfect opportunity to ask that question you have always wanted to ask…  The attention of the keeper will be all yours!

There will be no contact, feeding or behind the scenes views of these cats as the best view is from the visitor viewing area!

Then you will get the chance to feed the tigers one of their daily snacks using feeding tongs which get you just inches away from the cats.  This of course will make you very popular with our big cats! Our tigers mainly eat chicken, rabbit and horse meat on the bone, but for their snack they get a nice lean cut of red meat off the bone! This really is the best way to get up close and personal with such magnificent cats; it’s a truly amazing experience

As well as enjoying 20 to 30 minutes with the tigers,  you will also receive a commemorative certificate as part of your experience, as well as day entry to the rest of the park – allowing you to explore even further! The time slots for doing this experience are: 10:45am, 12:30am, 13:30pm.

Tiger Experience

We had a perfect day for it, with glorious autumn sunshine. Sarah was the keeper for both experiences, and she was lovely, making sure my daughter got as much time with the cats as possible.  I think I would suggest the tigers, as it's more intense, feeding them chicken wings, and seeing them stretch out those long limbs and big paws way above your head, and expose those long, sharp teeth.

I was totally at ease with Blade being introduced to him in the indoor tiger house by Charlotte the tiger keeper who was very good. I was able to stroke Blade cage and had my hands licked by this wonderful animal, then I was able to feed chicken wings to him. . His brother Troy was also there.

I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves animals, particularly tigers. I will definitely be going back.

I had a great time stroking and feeding the Tigers, Troy and Blade, their fur was quite soft and smooth. I've always loved tigers and feeding them was an unforgettable experience. This is the best gift I've ever had. I also put my hand flat against the wire fence and one of the tigers licked my hand and that was truly wonderful. If you ever get the chance to have the tiger experience, go for it, you will remember it for the rest of your life, I know I will.

I was treated to a surprise tiger experience by my wife and wow what an experience. The zoo keeper Hollie was a very knowledgeable lady who made sure my experience was amazing. I got to feed the tigers Troy and Blade which was just fantastic. If ever you get the chance to visit this lovely park go and do the tiger experience. You won't regret it. Fantastic day
