Coronavirus Guest Information

Update: 8th April 2021

Following the Government’s latest announcement, we’re thrilled to let you know that we will be opening the Safari Park again from 12th April 2021.

Indoor animal exhibits including Lorikeet Landing, Reptile House and Aquarium will remain closed until further notice.

We are unfortunately unable to run our Daily Talks and Shows, or open the VR Ride or Dr. Umboto’s Catacombs until 17th May 2021.

We can’t wait to welcome everybody back safely!

Update: 31st December 2020

We will still be open from Saturday 2nd for our Winter Weekends throughout January.

The Government’s review yesterday now means our indoor attractions will be closed. This affects Lorikeet Landing, Reptile World, Creepy Crawlies and our Aquarium.

Take away food will be available, as well as toilet facilities for our guests to use.

We continue to ask that you follow the latest Government guidelines for your local tier prior to pre-booking tickets.
