Get Up Close and Personal

Whether you want to experience being driven through the baboons without risking your car or just want to sit back and enjoy the Safari while somebody else does the driving, book your seat for just £6.00 per person.

Our Baboon Bus is waiting to take you on Safari. Our fleet of busses explore the whole safari drive every weekend and every day throughout school holidays (subject to availability). Each trip can last between 1 to 2 hours and allows you to get up close to some of the world's most amazing animals, from lions, rhino, zebra and of course, baboons.
