Take the Baboon Bus

*Available weekends and school holidays.

-

Our Baboon Bus is waiting to take you on Safari. The 16 or 33 seat minibus drives right around the whole safari drive every weekend and everyday throughout school holidays (subject to availability). Each trip can last between 1 to 2 hours depending on how busy the park is.

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, we know you’ll love our Baboon Bus.

You can catch the Baboon Bus at the information centre. Please call to let us know if there are any access requirements so we can make arrangements prior to your arrival. See below for more information on access.

Don’t forget to buy your copy of the Safari Guidebook before setting off so you can be the expert. Guidebooks are just £3.50 each and have all you need to know about the animals as well as fantastic images.
