Little animal lovers aged five and under will have a wild time on this zoo adventure as they come face-to-face with meerkats, zebras, giraffes, antelopes and rhinos. The morning begins with a meerkat feed and then it's time for a child-friendly, 40 minute Off Road Safari through the African Savannah.

On the Off Road Safari you'll meet a range of African animals and learn all about them from your very own Safari Guide! 

This is an intimate experience with a maximum of 14 people on the tour.
