A magical festive day out for all the family.

Combining a 4-mile self-drive Safari and a visit to Santa to make a truly memorable experience.

Santa’s Grotto

With an allocated time to see Santa, you will be greeted in the Discovery Trail by one of his helpful Elves who will show you to the sleigh where you will be magically transported to the North Pole & into Santa’s Grotto!

Santa’s Grotto is a wonderfully decorated log cabin with its own Christmas tree, festive fireplace and of course a seat just for you next to Santa himself! You can tell him what’s on the top of your Christmas wish list and a helpful Elf will take a picture of you together!

After meeting Santa, you will make your way to the Elves’ Workshop where children can pick their own present. With a wide selection of gifts to choose from, the children will be spoiled for choice!

Winter Wonderland

Our walk-through Discovery Trail will be decked with festive splendour & transformed into a magical winter wonderland! The sprinkling of ‘snow’ will be here throughout the event, so you’re guaranteed a white Christmas at the Safari Park!
Head to Mrs Claus’ Kitchen to pick up your complimentary refreshments and don’t forget to pop along to the Sea Lion Theatre to watch a show!

Winter Safari

The four-mile Safari Drive-through will still be open so you can journey in your car and encounter incredible animals such as lions, tigers, rhinos and elephants! 

Please note: The Adventure Theme Park rides will be closed throughout winter.
