Free Safari bus

The safari bus is temporarily cancelled

The safari bus at Werribee Open Range Zoo is free but now has physical distancing measures in place which means it will feel a bit like a private safari. With reduced numbers on board, you may need to wait before getting on the bus.

Thanks for your patience when queuing, and we apologise for any inconvenience, we’re doing the best we can!

A visit to Werribee Open Range Zoo isn't complete without an adventure on one of our unique safari buses!

Once on board you will be transported through arid landscapes and savannah grasslands to explore the open plains and learn about some of the world’s most endangered species.

From the critically endangered Mongolian Wild Horse to majestic giraffe traversing the iconic savannah, the 40 minute Safari Tour is one of the Zoo’s most popular experiences.

The tour includes live commentary from a Safari Guide as you move through the grasslands of Asia, North America and Africa, spotting bison, antelope, rhino, zebra and ostrich and you'll also learn more about the work of communities in Northern Kenya to help protect wildlife through the Beads for Wildlife program.

Jump on board, sit back and immerse yourself in the wonder of wildlife – the most thrilling safari adventure you’ll have this side of Africa!

Included free in your admission price, our safari tour is wheelchair accessible and suitable for all ages.
