Be one of the first to experience Werribee Open Range Zoo’s amazing new Safari Tours this summer!
Visitors will be thrilled by the new open-air safari vehicles, transformed exhibit landscapes and new audio content. This popular zoo adventure is now even more colourful, inspiring and immersive than ever before.
The safari rejuvenation will enable visitors to experience the zoo’s new Fighting Extinction grasslands for our bison, endangered Przewalski horses and north African Addax.
Visitors will also ‘meet’ African Villagers who tell of their experiences living alongside some of the world’s most magnificent animals, highlighting competition between humans and wildlife.
Safari tours bring visitors up close and personal to rhinos, hippos, giraffe, zebra, antelope and other magnificent animals, and is included in general zoo admission.
After the tour, visitors can also experience the African River Trail where they’ll meet lions, gorillas, monkeys, cheetah, African Wild Dogs, meekats and more.
Children receive free entry on school holidays, weekends and Victorian public holidays, so there’s never been a better time to visit the zoo!
Together we can improve animal care, reduce threatening processes and save endangered species.
The word ‘hippopotamus’ is Greek for ‘river horse’ and their closest relatives are whales and dolphins. You can help us fight extinction by adopting the hippopotamus.
