Winter safari drive-through

Despite the weather starting to get a little colder, you can still enjoy the immersive six-and-a-half-mile Safari Drive-through!

The Safari is well worth a visit during the winter as the Lions and Tigers are often much more active in the cooler weather, meaning you’re more likely to see them roaming around their enclosure!

There are so many other exhibits for your family to enjoy during the cold weather as well including Koala Creek, Jungle Kingdom and so many more!

What have you been up to? We’d really love to know! Someone else might love it, and really want to go! If you’ve got ideas, suggestions or reviews, you can shout all about it on whatever channel you choose!
