Do you see any animals?

As this event runs after dark, many of our foot safari animals will be sleeping so will not be visible. However, you’ll be able to enjoy our safari animal lanterns around the foot safari.


What if the weather is bad?

Our grotto provides a warm and cosy shelter, however, this event is predominantly outdoors. So, we recommend wrapping up warm and wearing appropriate footwear, layers and waterproofs if needed.
