As we are now closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all on site operations have been paused. This includes the construction of Land of the Tigers. Although we are sad that we cannot continue the work on the new habitat, we need to put the health and safety of the park, keepers and on-site workers first!
We will continue construction when the government sanction it is safe to do so.
A new tiger habitat comes to town
Gather family and friends for the launch of the brand new tiger habitat at Paradise Wildlife Park this Easter Weekend 2020.
The ‘Land of the Tigers’ has been built from the previous cheetah and lion habitats to create this totally bespoke exhibit for 2020. It will see the two female tigers Siberia and Aleena already with us at the park move into the new ‘Land of the Tigers’.
So, what makes this habitat so unique? It will be the first ever Amur tiger habitat in the UK that will feature a pool deep enough for the tigers to be fully submerged underwater. Not only this, but the park has built an amazing viewing area so visitors can watch these stunning creatures swim and play through water just inches away. The pool will also be home to a species of beautiful fish, which also makes this the first mixed species habitat that house a big cat in the UK. This is definitely a history making moment for the park and the UK so be sure not to miss out.
Land of the Tigers is the latest project in the ambitious rebuild plan Paradise has planned for the entire site.
Paradise Wildlife Park CEO Lynn Whitnall said:
“We are very excited to be developing our tiger habitat in 2020. This will be the second brand new habitat in as many years following the success of our Lion Pride Lands. Land of the Tigers will bring visitors closer to our beautiful tigers than ever before through the incredible underwater viewing part of the habitat. Amur tigers are endangered so we hope for the patter of tiny paws in the years to come to further contribute to the European Breeding Programmes and continue to show our charities contribution to conservation both in the UK and around the world.”
‘Land of the Tigers’ will open Easter 2020.
