Meet animals from all over the world in the heart of the huge Safari Park. You'll be able to wander freely, or take a mini-train safari, during which you'll see over 12,000 animals from the African savannah!

Your skip-the-line tickets will grant you direct access to the park, so you won't have to wait at the entrance. Inside, there are more than 12000 animals (from more than 650 species) waiting to meet you!

Just some of the animals you'll see include the Grevy's Zebra, the White Rhinoceros, the Rodrigues Flying Fox, Bushpigs, Arabian Oryx, Californian Condors, plus a number of other extraordinary animals. Wander freely through the park or enjoy a safari-style trip through the savanna plains!

Your ticket includes a picturesque safari-style trip aboard a small train, during which you'll spend 25 minutes getting to know the animals that originate from the African savanna. During the safari, your guide will share all the secrets of the park and the creatures that call it home, telling you about the animals' behaviour and daily life in the zoo.

Admire the diversity of animals from across Africa and get up-close to Giraffes, Rhinoceroses, Gazelles, Antelopes, Cranes, Ostriches, and many more. A great experience for you, your friends and family!
