Set in over 16.5 acres and with more than 2000 residents, Lincolnshire Wildlife Park is a nature reserve, animal rehabilitation centre and the world’s largest parrot sanctuary. The wildlife park is also home to the largest collection of Bengal tigers in the UK.
The 11 magnificent big cats live in a newly built enclosure, Bengal Gardens, which was officially opened by Michaela Strachan in July 2017. Before this the story started with just four tigers, Dehra and her three cubs Basera, Sajiba & Lajuka, who arrived at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park in January 2015 in need of a new home.
The tiger family were housed in an animal holding enclosure while funds were raised to build their new state-of-the-art Bengal Gardens enclosure. The original four tigers have since been joined by two males, Skah & Sangha, and five more females named Princess, Soutanna, Kumari, Indya & Bella, making the biggest collection of Bengal tigers in the country.
Visitors to the park can learn all about tigers in the wild, conservation and the importance of protecting one of the most endangered species in the world. Come face-to-face with these beautiful predators through the large viewing windows, or go behind the scenes on a Tiger Feeding experience or Tiger Tour.
Lincolnshire Wildlife Parks is open daily from 10am and is a registered charity, with money raised from entrance and donations used to feed and house all of the animals at the park.
