Stay safe when you explore and follow our rules of entry

Our animals behave as close to the wild as possible and can be unpredictable, so staying safe inside your car at all times is essential. If you breakdown while on the safari drive, it is important that all passengers stay within the car – you should sound your horn and wait for a patrol vehicle to come to your assistance.

Guests are strictly prohibited from feeding the animals – that’s our job! If you are seen feeding the animals from your vehicle you will be asked to leave the park.

Our safari drive is full of wild animals who can act unpredictably at times and we are not able to accept any responsibility for loss or damage caused by any of our animals and you accept this as part of our conditions of entry.

To reduce the risk of damage to your vehicle follow the car friendly route to avoid entering the baboon enclosure, never stop next to our larger animals and if approached move forward slowly. Alternatively why not purchase tickets for our Baboon Bus.

  • Coaches and buses with roof-top skylights are only suitable for the car-friendly route.
