Our Pere David deer are approaching their annual summer breeding season, known as the rut. Over the next few weeks, visitors can witness the event our deer have been preparing for all winter, you can be sure to catch the males sparring with their antlers and sizing each other up ahead of this exciting time.
This is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to experience some of the rarely seen, natural animal behaviours first hand on our Safari Drive, such as mature stags with the largest antlers utilisng their bulk and impressive headwear to intimidate the competition, males calling out in competition to be the loudest, and more.

What You’ll Be Doing
The evening will start at 6.30pm, where visitors will be directed to the Safari School from the entrance gates upon arrival. There will be a short 15 minute talk outlining the plan for the event as well as what behaviours you might want to look out for. From the school, guests will continue up onto the section for an hour of observing these incredible and rare behaviours.
What To Wear
We would advise guests to wear sensible shoes and comfortable clothes. The majority of the evening will take place on the drive, however, you may want to bring a light jacket should the weather turn.
